Do Training Hospitals Do Body Contouring

Most training hospitals offer body contouring. Often, if plastic surgery residents are doing the surgery the professional fees are lower, but the overall cost may not be much different because the procedures may take longer, and the operating room fees may be much higher in a hospital as compared with an outpatient facility. My home hospital, for example, changes more than $10,000 more for three hours of surgery time than does the nearby surgicenter. 

Thanks for the question, and best wishes.

I'm sure that Plastic Surgery Training Programs offer  the surgery you need.  You will need to check for University Medical Schools with Plastic Surgery Residencies to find out the particulars (costs, etc.)  Otherwise many Plastic Surgeons in the privated sector do this surgery. In my case the surgery is done as outpatient in our own ambulatory surgical unit which saves considerable $.Good Luck
