From the time you walk in until the time you walk out is usually 4.5 hrs with tumescent liposuction under local anesthesia. It is a relatively painless procedure and gives dramatic results in most cases. Our patients are comfortable and are watching DVDs on a headset throughout the procedure and are able to stand up and sit and turn in all positions so I can access and fine tune the areas to give the best results. Full abdomens and waists run roughly $5,000 on special for this safe and amazing procedure. Sincerely,

It is hard to predict how long a liposuction procedure will take without examining you and knowing what needs to be done.  They can vary from 30 minutes to 3-4 hours.
