Average Cost of Liposuction and Fat Transfer for Contouring?

My proportion is 36-30-31, and I think SOMETHING IS WRONG with it. How much is the average price range of Liposuction for contouring (abdomen and flanks) and Fat Transfer to hips? I have good butt projection but lacking hip width. I'm 5'2, 120 lbs, and have substantial amount of fat in abdomen and flanks. Surgeons, help please!

Hi Cody,

As you can see from all the answers, the cost varies depending on which country you live in, your specific requirement etc. 

Being a Cosmetic Surgeon, I can help you break this cost down so you have a better idea about what you should be paying for, so that you or anyone else reading this can make a better decision.

A systematic approach to analysis of cost of Liposuction or any surgical procedure for that matter, could evaluated based on the following criteria.

1. Surgeon Fee

This will depend on the experience and consistent results offered by the surgeon. If the surgeon is charging you more than the standard cost in your country / region then make sure his / her cost matches up to their skills and experience. A simple method of doing this is by going through all patient reviews and testimonials on all platforms including their website.

2. Hospital Infrastructure Cost

This point is pretty self explanatory. Smaller nursing homes are less equipped and will generally charge you less compared to an Exclusive Aesthetic Centre or a Multi Speciality Hospital. The cost difference is what you pay for all the infrastructure.

3. Special Instrument's Used

Some cosmetic surgery procedures require the use of special instruments. Needless to say, these procedures are priced higher to include the usage of the special instruments. If the tariff offered to you isn't adding up, ask to see if the procedure you opted for uses special instruments like lasers etc.

4. Duration of Procedure

Longer surgeries and procedures often tend to cost more than the shorter ones.

To Sum it up, here's what you should be asking yourself and your surgeon when analysing costs.

1. What is the quality of treatment I will be receiving?

2. Are there hidden costs? (Ask for a fully transparent pricing structure)

3. Are there costs for aftercare?

Coming to your main question, the cost in general is hard to pinpoint to a specific number without a consultation with a surgeon, as it differs greatly for different people.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the question.  Cost of plastic surgery will vary depending on the area of the country as well as between plastic surgeons.  In general, liposuction and fat grafting of the thighs/buttocks is going to be around 7-10 K.

All the best,

It depends on how much volume is needed to correct the problem.

 The excess fat can be taken from the areas where you have too much and transfered. The cost depends on how much work and time is required, but a good guess is about $5000 to $7500

Liposuction of the abdomen and sides run about $5000-6000 and fat injections run about $1000-1500 more. This is of coarse done under local anesthesia which does not need an anesthesiologist. You are back to work in 2 days and up and about the next day.

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. Multiple areas of liposuction may be additional. Fat transfer is additional and is harder to quote without a physical examination and consultation.

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.

The cost of liposuction with fat transfer for contouring of the hips varies from patient to patient and depends upon the patient’s specific needs.No two patients are ever exactly alike, and for this reason pricing is dependent upon multiple variables.It’s important to understand these variables and how they may contribute to a fee quote.

For instance, does the fee quote include the surgeon’s fee, facility fee, anesthesia charges and specialized equipment that’s used for processing fat, or just the surgeon’s fee?The answer to this question will dramatically impact the cost of the procedure.For this reason, the patient should understand what’s included before proceeding with surgery.It’s also important to understand the surgeon’s revisional surgery policy.In other words, if additional surgery is necessary, who pays for it?

It’s important that patients have a thorough understanding of these issues prior to surgery.Make sure all your questions are answered before proceeding.In the Midwestern United States where I practice the cost of this type of procedure would range between 6,000 and 8,000 dollars depending upon the specifics of your anatomy and aesthetic goals.When this procedure is undertaken, clinical results are excellent and patient satisfaction rates are extremely high.

Your body contour is  a function of your skeleton, muscle, muscle mass, and skin envelope as well as the internal organs,

Removing the fat, may not in and of itself, correct all your contour problems if there are other anatomical considerations responsible for the undesireable contours.
