How many consultations would be the most appropriate for liposuction? I went to one place and they used my BMI to calculate the treatment cost. Is that common? I have a BMI of 24 and want liposuction of upper/lower abs and male chest (they seemed to believe that I would only need liposuction and not tissue removal here). I was quoted 4800. I have no problem paying the money but it was just so strange to have my cost be evaluated by equation with BMI before evening meeting a surgeon.
