Got a 11K Quote for Cellulaze??

Hi there,   I'm in San Diego and I went to the only doctor who does it here. So far, he said he's done a handful (mostly his staff). I need the front, back, some of the side and half of my butt done. The gave me a quote of 11K (they said down from 15K). Is this completely ridiculous? I know I have a lot of areas, but still. I'm 5'7", 135 lbs. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I also have a consult with Dr. Petti in Torrance and will be scheduling one with Dr. Springer soon. xx, Lotsalipo

We generally quote patients per anatomic treatment area, although some doctors quote patients by the number of "squares" treated (5x5cm areas). For front, back, side and buttock, my quote well under $10K. I use local anesthesia and valium only and the procedure is performed in the office OR, so I can pass on the cost savings to my patients!

Again the disposables from Cynosure are very costly. From you slight description I believe the hard CELLULAZE costs are 2 fibers ($600), 2 Thermaguides/1 Smart Sense ($2,000), rental fee of the unit ($500) = $3,100. Than OR expenses about $1,000, anesthesia costs $1,000. So before the doc gets started the out of pocket expenses/costs run around $5,000+++. Add his fee which should double the costs another $5,000 gets you to $10,000. So the $11K quote even discounted sounds in line. Yes the CELLULAZE is very cost expensive. If you wish to forward photos to me than I can quote you more specifically . Regards BTW I would wait til he has more experience or use another certified CELLULAZE doc.
