  1. Background: High Volume Liposuction (>5 Liters fat removed)
    1. Fat >5 L removal is associated with large volume Fluid Shifts with third spacing and Hypovolemia
    2. These patients are typically observed overnight with Urine Output and Vital Sign monitoring
  2. Complications
    1. Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity (LAST)
    2. Post-operative infection

      3. Syncope
