vary and are dependent upon multiple factors. These include the surgeon’s fee,
facility fee, anesthesia charges, location of the liposuction procedure and the
type of liposuction performed. The approach to liposuction varies from
physician to physician. Some surgeons use general anesthesia, some use a
hospital and some use techniques that involve expensive technology. Each of
these variables can affect the cost of liposuction.
Obtaining fee quotes
for liposuction on the telephone or internet can be confusing. Therefore, it’s
important to meet with a physician and know exactly what he or she is talking
about. Make sure, you’re not talking apples and oranges and that you’re getting
a fee quote for a comparable procedure.
In the Midwestern
United States, liposuction fees range from $2,700 to $3,600 per anatomic area.
This would typically include the surgeons fee, facility fee, anesthesia
charges, and after care.
Cost is obviously
important, but it’s also important to be comfortable with the surgeon’s
qualifications and experience. Make sure you get all your questions answered
and are comfortable with your surgeon.
