Liposuction Cost

The cost of liposuction is often a primary concern for most patients. Care should be taken, however, in over-emphasizing the cost of liposuction, as physician skill and experience are a much more important factor. Consider, for instance, the additional cost required should you need to repeat a sub-optimal liposuction procedure or even worse if you need to address any complications. Shopping on price to save a few dollars when it comes to your body is just not worth it.

The total cost or price of liposuction may include three primary elements:

  1. Surgeon's Fee
  2. Anesthesia Fee
  3. Facility Fee

When you receive a specific liposuction price quote, it is important to understand whether it is inclusive of all of the above items or not. Liposuction costs will vary depending on whether a separate anesthesia provider is used, the location of the procedure (hospital, surgicenter or other operating facility),the surgeon's expertise, what part of the country you live in, and whether newer, advanced technologies are employed (like laser or ultrasound). The largest factor affecting liposuction cost is the number and extent of areas to be treated. A rough estimate of liposuction costs is as follows:

# Areas to Be Treated Liposuction Costs / Prices
One $2,000-$5,000
Multiple $3,000-$10,000

Liposuction Physician Skill and Experience

More importantly than measuring the cost of liposuction, you should assess your surgeon's skill and experience in performing your specific liposuction procedure. A good surgeon will take the time to sit down with you and answer all your questions. Ask the doctor how many procedures they have performed (and for how long), whether they are board certified, what outcomes (and/or complications) might be expected, and what additional personnel will be involved in the procedure. As well, it is best to get a written estimate (with as much detail as possible) of the costs of your liposuction procedure.

Liposuction Financing

The costs of liposuction are not small, and may be difficult to manage for many. To help alleviate this, many liposuction surgeons offer a number of patient financing options that can decrease your up-front payments and spread the cost out over time. Please consult your individual physician for specifics and quotes on how the cost of liposuction can be managed in this way.
