Cost of Liposuction is an important factor but!

Cost of Liposuction is an important factor when considering liposuction surgery. However the quality of liposuction is more important than the liposuction cost. If the ultimate goal of liposuction is to have desired results in terms of fat removal, then the surgeon’s expertise and experience are probably more important than the liposuction surgery price.  Be careful not to put your body on the “Discount Rack“.

Choosing a liposuction surgeon based on the lowest price might ultimately be the most expensive choice

  • Most common undesirable outcomes of poorly done liposuction are
  • Incomplete liposuction with very little evidence that liposuction was actually done
  • Excessive liposuction producing an unnatural or disfigured appearance
  • Irregular and uneven results with unsightly depressions in the skin
  • Large scars that reveal that the patient has had liposuction

The expected time and effort that is required to accomplish a liposuction surgery is the most important factor in determining the cost of liposuction.

Factors that typically affect the surgeon’s time and effort include

  • Number of areas being treated
  • Size of the patient
  • Anticipated degree of difficulty. Thus, cost of liposuction of the abdomen alone is less than the cost of doing liposuction on both the abdomen as well as the inner thighs and knees. Similarly the cost for abdominal liposuction on a patient who weighs 80 kilograms (176 pounds) might be more than the cost for liposuction of the abdomen of a patients who has never weighed more than 60 kilograms (132 pounds). Liposuction is more difficult and requires more time if the patient has previously gained and then lost a significant amount of weight. In any area previously treated with liposuction the fat often contains scar tissue which makes liposuction in the same area more difficult.
