I don't have any fat I want to get rid of on the front of my stomach. I only have the sides of my abdomen that stick out and look very unappealing. I am at my goal wieght (112lbs) and 5'6''. All the flank lipo reviews I've seen so far also included the front of the stomach, so I'm unsure how much cheaper it would be just for the flanks. Also, can one undergo the procedure without anesthesia ansd how much moeny can I save?

Flank liposuction is great under local anesthesia!
Flank liposuction is commonly done now under just local anesthesia and gives amazing results in many patients for roughly $4000-5000 with the micro canulas. It is easy to get done and you walk out after the procedure and back to work in only 1-2 days and exercising in 1 week. Sincerely,

Flank Liposuction is usually in the range of $3000 to $5000 depending on your location.
In our clinic we charge $3500 for the first area (both flanks) and then a discounted fee for each additional area treated on the same day.

Flank liposuction fees will vary around the country and doctor to doctor. Do not just go by price because sometimes the price is very low for a reason.

The cost depends on where you live
Liposuction of the flanks is pretty common. Like you said, it is frequently combined with liposuction of the abdomen. However, some patients have concerns limited only to the flanks. I usually do the procedure with the patient in the prone position under general anesthesia for patient comfort. Some plastic surgeons prefer IV sedation to a general anesthetic. The total cost really depends on where you live and the amount of expertise and competition that exists there. In the midwest, the total fees might range from $2500 to as much as $5000. It's important to remember that price concerns should always be secondary to issues of board certification, expertise, and experience.
Flank lipo cost
At my clinic, flank lipo is $3292 which includes everything. I reccomend enough sedation to be comfortable. Most patients sleep during the procedure and awaken with no pain or discomfort. You must wear a compression garmet for 6 weeks after, but you could go back to work in a day or two. You are the ideal candidate for this procedure and should get the best results.
