Circuit loss calculation????

I have a problem and propably the answer is simple. Suppose we have some lumped element circuit composing of inductor and capacitor S-paramater files (from manufacturer). How can I simulated the losses caused by the circuit? The reflection losses should not be included. If I have understood correctly, e.g. S21 includes the losses caused by the mismatch at the lumped element circuit input! And then again (if we have e.g. 50 ohm ports at the both ends) at the circuit output, there are again reflection losses, which causes multiple reflections in the circuit...Is it possible to calculate the losses from the simulated S-parameters of the lumped element circuit?? If there is some way, please let me know.

Thank you in advance:)
