Liposuction costs can vary largely 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.

Often the amount of time spent in the O.R. determines the price.  This may translate into how many areas of liposuction you are doing, (time for each area to be completed).  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.

The cost of liposuction depends on the complexity of your case,  the number of areas done and whether an anesthesiologist is involved and possibly the type of facility.  You will need to see a physician in consultation to be examined, determine if your a candidate and then discuss the risks and costs.

The way to find out what the costs are for liposuction in South Africa is to call several plastic surgeons and inquire about the general costs including surgical fees, outpatient centers and anesthesia costs. Consultations would be needed to obtain a more accurate amount based on what areas and how much fat needs to be removed.

The cost of liposuction like other procedure vary considerably across the world 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 such as South Africa may be more expensive than South Florida. Our liposuction price starts at $2800 + MD Anesthesia.

Liposuction, Costs

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Hi anon2363,

Costs for plastic surgery varies widely around the world, and even within a given region.  There's no way for someone here to tell you what any procedure will cost.

Furthermore, unlike some other procedures that are typically more standard (such as a breast enlargement, or liposuction of the chin), "a liposuction" can include many different procedures, areas, costs of anesthesia, facility fees, etc.  So you'll need to contact several plastic surgeons near you and go see them.  After you've seen a few you'll have a better idea of what the costs are like in your area, and you'll have a better basis for comparison.

I hope that this helps, and good luck,

Dr. E
