Cost of four areas of liposuction.

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.

Wide variation

+1

There is going to be a wide variation in costs from one part of the country to another. Also, different physicians will have different definitions of what constitutes an "area". The best thing is to call some physician's offices and see if you can't get some prices in Bakersfield and also some surrounding areas. Look for board-certified Plastic surgeons, certified by the American Board of plastic Surgery.

MAny issues will effect cost of liposuction

Dr. Brzowski provided an excellent answer to your question. I concur with his recommendation.

Clearly there are regional variations in cost.

Many items factor into the cost and have an influence on the wide variation in prices you will be cited. Take all these into consideration before making a decision based on cost.

Call around to doctors that have worked on your friends and family. See who comes recommended, and then go in for a consultation. At that point you can consider the costs. There is usually a big variation in fees, so expect a wide range.

Another good rule of thumb is to understand that these procedures cost more in certain parts of the country than in others. For instance, in California and New York, you might pay anywhere from $8000 to $12000 for breast implants, but in less populated areas where the cost of living is lower, you would normally see fees for a breast augmentation around $4000 to $6000. Same quality of physician, just less overhead.
