Often the amount of time spent in the O.R. determines the price.  This may translate into how many areas of liposuction you are doing, (time for each area to be completed).  Liposuction prices will vary from city to city and surgeon to surgeon.  There are many variables in price.  Often these variables are not in the control of the surgeon, (O.R. fee, anesthesia fee, supplies, etc).  Beware of bargain basement pricing.  Cheap can become expensive quickly.  Best to see a board certified plastic surgeon.  Together you should be able to find a plan that is safe and effective.

Liposuction, Costs

+1

Hi anon2363,

Costs for plastic surgery varies widely around the world, and even within a given region.  There's no way for someone here to tell you what any procedure will cost.

Furthermore, unlike some other procedures that are typically more standard (such as a breast enlargement, or liposuction of the chin), "a liposuction" can include many different procedures, areas, costs of anesthesia, facility fees, etc.  So you'll need to contact several plastic surgeons near you and go see them.  After you've seen a few you'll have a better idea of what the costs are like in your area, and you'll have a better basis for comparison.

I hope that this helps, and good luck,

Dr. E

The cost of liposuction depends on the complexity of your case,  the number of areas done and whether an anesthesiologist is involved and possibly the type of facility.  You will need to see a physician in consultation to be examined, determine if your a candidate and then discuss the risks and costs.

The way to find out what the costs are for liposuction in South Africa is to call several plastic surgeons and inquire about the general costs including surgical fees, outpatient centers and anesthesia costs. Consultations would be needed to obtain a more accurate amount based on what areas and how much fat needs to be removed.
