Are you tired of struggling with stubborn fat that just won’t go away no matter how much you exercise or diet? With liposuction, you don’t have to imagine your dream body. You can get the more defined physique you’ve been working toward with liposuction. Keep reading to hear our top tips for planning and budgeting for your liposuction cost.

What Determines the Cost of Liposuction?

Several factors need to be considered when calculating the cost of your liposuction procedure, including the following:

Extent of Treatment

Liposuction costs depend on the size, location, and number of your treatment areas. Patients commonly want to contour their abdomens, thighs, hips, buttocks, upper arms, flanks, and beneath the chin. The more areas (and the larger their size), the more expensive the procedure will be.

Technique Used

Different practices may offer variations of the traditional liposuction technique, such as using ultrasonic or laser energy to liquefy the fat before it is suctioned. However, these extra modalities don’t always mean better outcomes for patients, even though they may be offered at premium prices.

At Las Vegas Plastic Surgery, we use the tried-and-true tumescent liposuction technique. This technique uses a numbing injection to solidify the targeted fat and keep the patient comfortable during and after the procedure.

Surgeon’s Experience and Expertise

Highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeons typically charge more for their services. While it may be tempting to opt for a cheaper option, it may create more expenses in the long run if there are any complications or unsatisfactory results.

Always do your homework and check your plastic surgeon’s credentials, particularly their certification with the American Board of Plastic Surgery, to make sure you are choosing a trained and qualified provider. They may cost more, but you cannot put a price on your health and well-being.

Location of the Practice

The geographical location of the surgical facility significantly impacts the cost of liposuction. Procedures performed in major metropolitan areas or upscale neighborhoods may be more expensive than those in rural areas.

Operating Facility Fees

Surgical facilities charge fees for the operating room and other associated services. These costs can vary depending on the facility’s amenities and accreditation.

Consultation Fees

Before undergoing liposuction, patients should have an in-person consultation with their plastic surgeon to discuss their medical history, goals, and whether they are a good candidate for their procedure. The fee for this consultation is often applied toward the surgical cost.

Budgeting for Your Liposuction Procedure

Here are a few tips you should keep in mind when planning to pay for your procedure:

1. Research Multiple Plastic Surgeons

Take the time to research and consult with multiple board-certified plastic surgeons to compare pricing, credentials, and patient reviews. Don’t base your decision solely on cost; prioritize finding a qualified surgeon with whom you feel comfortable.

Make sure to also consider their before and after photos to see if their results align with your goals or if you have different aesthetic preferences. Still need help deciding? Read our guide to choosing a plastic surgeon.

2. Ask About Financing Options

Many plastic surgery practices offer financing plans to help patients spread the cost of their liposuction surgery over time. Understanding your repayment options can help you determine what works best for your budget.

3. Consider Timing

Some practices may offer seasonal promotions or discounts on cosmetic procedures. If possible, scheduling your liposuction during these promotional periods may help you save money. Always vet your provider thoroughly and trust your instincts if something seems too good to be true.

4. Plan For Additional Expenses

In addition to the surgical fees, leave room in your budget for postoperative care, compression garments, pain medications, and any unforeseen complications that may arise. While liposuction is generally considered safe in the hands of a qualified plastic surgeon, it’s always good to be prepared.

5. Maintain Realistic Expectations

Liposuction can yield dramatic improvements in your body’s contours, but it’s essential to have realistic expectations. Discuss your goals and desired outcomes with your surgeon during the consultation to ensure they align with what can be realistically achieved. In some cases, a tummy tuck or other surgery may give you your desired results, especially if you have lax, stretched skin. If you prefer a less invasive body contouring approach, you may be a better candidate for CoolSculpting®. Be aware that these alternatives may require different budgeting.
