What Are Current Liposuction Prices?

For estimating cost, liposuction is one of the most difficult procedures to calculate. There are many different areas of the body on which liposuction may be performed. Different types of machines, different types of anesthesia, and of course, surgeons of different experience and skill levels must be taken into consideration. After you have been examined by a surgeon and a surgical plan for your type of liposuction has been agreed upon, you will be able to get a clearer idea of the cost.

Liposuction Prices

Liposuction costs are made up of three fees: surgeon fees, anesthesia fees and facility fees. Anesthesia fees can range from $500 to $1,000, depending on the number of areas treated. Facility fees will also vary depending on the number of areas where liposuction is performed, ranging from $600 to $1,200. The remaining cost is the surgeon’s fee.

If you are having just one area surgically repaired by liposuction, plan on spending up to $4,000. In three areas, $6,000 to $8,000, and if you are having surgery in five areas you can expect to pay $8,000 to $10,000. The cost will be higher the larger the area. For instance: the cost for liposuction on the outer thigh will be about half as much as the cost of liposuction on the abdomen.

Smart liposuction is the way to go. There can be a potential danger if you are looking for the lowest liposuction costs available. Sometimes advertisements for “cheap” liposuction can be very deceptive. Often they include large financing fees that are only truly explained in the “fine print”!

Keep in mind that although the current liposuction prices may be steep, the cost to your health can be much higher. Price should NEVER be the only consideration when considering cosmetic surgery. You would better to use an experienced liposuction surgeon and securing private financing to help you cover the cost, than to save a little bit of money and put your health at risk!
