Is price representative of how much contouring the surgeon performs?

Which doctor Did you go to?

Most Docs charge per area. Not volume.

In my experience the first doctor I went to wanted to charge me $9,500 and do ALOT(in my opinion too much-7liters) lipo and the fat graft to buttocks. He was inexperienced, fresh out of school. The second doc I went to is the one I chose. I paid a thousand more but got 15 more years of experience and many reviews from other patients. He was highly reputable. Did just enough lipo and I got 1000 cc's transfered to each butt cheek. To me there was no price on me having peace of mind. I don't regret it for a minute. Good luck!

Okay, you've stumped me! My only thought is that it's harder to remove fat when there isn't much of it, but again, that's a complete guess.

I think the price is mostly made up of time and fees; i.e., anesthesia, operating room fees and the doctor's time costs a certain amount regardless of how much is removed (which only adds a few extra minutes to the actual procedure). After all, you already own the fat. :)
