The cost of slim lipo is determined by the areas to be addressed, as well as the outpatient / anesthesia fee.  Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon ( ASPS certified) to determine your course of treatment.

Slim Lipo Cost - the determining factors

+1

Although RealSelf estimates the average Slim Lipo Cost is about $5200 - it all depends on the extent and who is doing the surgery.Typical California Liposuction  vary greatly because the liposuction itself encompasses a wide range of techniques that can be performed to different extents. By the way, my opinion is that Slim Lipo does no better than other techniques and it is the surgeon, not the type of instrumentation that makes the difference. My recommendation is to first find a qualified plastic surgeon that is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery you trust, then compare prices between them. Factors that influence the price include:


1. Location - Will it be performed in a hospital with an overnight stay, an independent out- patient facility or a doctors office?

2. Type of Anesthesia - local, IV sedation or General Anesthesia? Will a board certified anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist be used, or an RN?
     
 3. Experience and training of your surgeon. The best trained (and longest) would be a surgeon board  certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
    
 4. Length and Complexity of Surgery - how much will be removed, how many areas, how long, etc
