What is the ideal time interval between liposuctions?
Time interval between two liposuctions
(Discussion to topic Tumescent liposuction)
It depends on the amount of fat removed during your first liposuction. So depending on your fat aspirated, it can be in days, weeks or months. But generally if your liposuction is between 3-5 liters, we recommend a second liposuction, after 2 months of a different area. If a touch up of the same area is required, it is better to wait one year.

3 months is the minimal,6 months is ideal to repeat the procedure.
The time interval between liposuctions for the same area must be at least 3 monthes
After 6weeks if its the same area.howeverr if it is a different area of the body and patient is fit even overnight is possible.
Due to wound healing and skin shrinking after liposuction I would recommend to wait at least three months, better half a year before doing a liposuction at the same site. Shorter intervals are not recommended because skin shrinking sets on after about two months and normally goes on until the end of the third month.
