How much does it cost for belly fat removal?

This may cost $4500 on the low end.

Liposuction results are highly surgeon dependent. Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of liposuction and liposuction revision procedures each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Cost liposuction abdomen belly

Depending on amount of work required the cost is around $3000.  Tumescent procedure with sedation is the gold standard and safe procedure for body contouring.  I have performed thousands of liposculpture procedures for over 12 years with outstanding natural results.  I perform this procedure with IV sedation which makes the entire experience safe and comfortable. Consultations are complementary.

Belly fat removal runs roughly $5-6000 for quality work.

Liposuction of the belly makes such a great improvement and is easy to undergo for roughly $5-6000 on special for  really quality work under local tumescent anesthesia. You are back to work in 2 days and back to the gym in 1 week. Sincerely, David Hansen,MD

Thank you for your question. 

Laser liposuction became very popular in aesthetic surgery. There are different types of laser liposuction but the various types of laser liposuction have similar costs.  I would estimate that cost of belly area  with laser liposuction would range from $2000-$2500 depending on the size of the area. 

It would be better to give you some information regarding laser lipo. Laser liposuction is laser assisted liposuction and we use the laser as an adjunct to a liposuction procedure. The major benefits of laser liposuction have been scientifically studied and it is reported that the skin tightening from the procedure is quicker and better when laser lipo is done. Price varies a great deal and the most important thing is to find a provider that is well skilled in laser liposuction. A board-certified plastic surgeon should be the ones doing these procedures.

Liposuction cost

Hello. The costs for liposuction will vary tremendously depending on the the training and experience of the physician and where the surgery is performed. It can also depend on the amount of fat being removed which translates into time in the operating room. Some patients have surgery done under sedation while others have surgery done under general anesthesia where you are asleep. Because everyone is different it's difficult to estimate costs without seeing photos or the patient in person. When looking at costs be sure to look at total costs - surgery, operating room costs, anesthesia, garments , etc. Liposuction is often one of those surgeries where you get what you pay for. Discount surgery can often leave a patient with serious problems that are difficult to fix. Ultimately any patient having liposuction should be at a stable weight. Gaining weight back after the procedure will usually lead to unhappy patients. So many things to consider. Ultimately, to answer your question it can cost anywhere from $2500 - $7500 or more for the areas you are talking about depending on what exactly is done. You should make a consultation with several board certified plastic surgeons in your area with an expertise in liposuction and body contouring to see what your specific options are. Good luck!

Costs and recovery

The costs and your recovery will depend on the scope of your problem. Costs will vary amongst surgeons and the time spent in the OR will affect the total. In my area things would start around $4000 and go up. Recovery also depends on how significant your problem area is. More liposuction means more recovery.

To best help you, a physical examination or picture evaluation would be required. Please provide some pictures consisting of a front, back, left and right side view of your body in order to determine which procedures and techniques would be best for your case.
