Abdominal liposuction runs around $5000-7000 as an average.

You can never do just the lower abdomen. You almost always have to do the full abdomen to make it look good and even.  It should be done under local anesthesia by the tumescent technique and with smaller canulas.  There are no stitches, no need for risky general anesthesia, and the recovery is about 2 days before you are back to work.  Cost is $5000-7000 for a good job.  Cheaper lipos usually give less than nice results.  Sincerely,

Abdominal liposuction

While you may think that you only need the lower abdomen to be treated, if you gain weight, the upper abdomen will look very funny if not treated.

Cost of Lower Belly Liposuction

The cost of lower belly liposuction can vary greatly depending on the surgeon, the city you're having your procedure performed, and how large an area you are treating.  Generally speaking, in my Austin based practice, you would be looking at anywhere from $1500-$2000 + anesthesia and OR fees.  Around $4000 total cost.

How Much Does Liposuction on Lower Belly Cost?

Thanks for the question. When it comes to costs of surgery, there may be many “variables” involved. The specific surgeon's credentials/experience level (or lack thereof), the specific geographic area you are looking at, the different operations available, the location of the procedure (quality of surgery facility), type/quality of anesthesia provider… are some of the potential variables involved.  You will find some average costs of surgery on this website and on individual plastic surgeons' websites as well.

In regards to outcome of the planned procedure, more important than costs of the procedures will be careful selection of your plastic surgeon. I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.

Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery. Ask to SEE lots of examples of their work AND preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done.

Be very careful with your decision-making. You will find, while doing your due diligence, that there are many different “specialties” who will offer their services to you; again, I strongly recommend you concentrate on surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Again, I would also suggest that you do not base your selection of plastic surgeon primarily on costs of surgery; keep in mind that revisionary surgery may be more costly in many ways.  Best wishes.

Liposuction on Lower Belly Cost

The cost of liposuction like other procedure vary considerably across the country and even in the same area depending on the cost structure. More expensive cities such as New York or Los Angeles, or areas with fewer board certified plastic surgeons may be more expensive than South Florida. Our liposuction price starts at $2800 + MD Anesthesia.

For the highest standards and cost containment, consult with experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons who own their own nationally accredited surgery center.

The surgeon must maintain the highest standards to maintain national accreditation, has significant interest in ensuring that all the staff are the highest quality and trained in the specifics of each plastic surgery procedure, ensures that the facility is comfortable and private so patients are more inclined to recommend friends and family, and maintain the most cost effective structure possible which eliminates waste.

Liposuction in the Midwest Ranges From $2700-$3600

Liposuction costs 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 surgeon’s 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.

In the Midwestern United States, liposuction fees for treating the lower abdomen range from $2700 to $3600. This would typically include the surgeon’s 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.

Liposuction Cost

In Toronto, Ontario, you can expect to pay around $3000-$5000. The cost of liposuction depends on a number of factors, including:

the number of areas you target
the technique
the surgeon
the city you are in

You should really talk to the surgeon you're interested in to find out the cost for your procedure. A discount may only be available if you get liposuction performed in conjunction with another procedure, such as a tummy tuck.

Liposuction on lower abdomen, cost.

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 cost

Joni, the cost of liposuction varies from surgeon to surgeon. The average cost of liposuction in my practice is from $999 per area. We require a minimum of 2 areas. It is unusual to perform liposuction in just one area. In body contouring, my gaol is to achieve body harmony. We offer the option of liposuction with or without sedation.

The cost of the procedure should not be used to select a surgeon. You should select a surgeon based on his/her experience and certification. Selecting a Plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, assures you that your surgeon has had the surgical training in liposuction.

How much does liposuction on just the lower belly cost?

In general, it is unusual to perform liposuction solely of the lower belly, since very often the fat accumulates both in the lower belly and the periumbilical area and to achieve a nice overall balance, liposuction is usually performed on the entire abdominal area. Obviously if there is just a small localized area in the lower abdomen then it could be addressed separately from the remainder of the abdomen. If there is significant laxity to the skin, liposuction whether Tumescent or Smart Lipo will not correct this adequately and some variation on a tummy tuck (e.g. "mini") may be in order. That being said, the range in cost for liposuction of the abdomen is generally $3,000 - $5,000 depending on the area of the country and the particular surgeon.
