Liposuction "areas" are not standardized

Liposuction areas can be confusing.  I agree with Dr Blinski that inner thighs and knees are two areas and I too divide the abdomen into upper and lower, usually.  Sometimes, the entire upper and lower abdomen isn't a problem and I will just treat it as one area.  I know doctors that treat the abodomen as three areas, upper, mid and lower.  I have also heard of charging for each inner thigh as a separate area. So what is considered an "area" is not standardized and one should be sure it is clarified, especially when trying to compare costs.  I use a map of the body and draw the areas to be treated on the map to reduce the chance for confusion.

Liposuction and areas treated

Every doctor describes the areas treated differently.  Upper vs lower abdomen vs entire abdomen, one or two?  Don't be bogged down with that. Find a good doctor that gets great results, and go with that person.

VASER Lipo - per area.

Inner thigh and knees are 2 areas. Seems like an easy concept to understand. I classify the abdomen as 2 areas upper & lower some divide it into 4 quadrants. So you must see the operating surgeon to determine exactly the # of areas. From MIAMI DR. B
