Liposuction - how much would it cost?

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well.. This is the surgical procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied, it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain. Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery, that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed performing a thigh lift…

VASER Hi Definition Liposuction / Body Contouring with Fat Grafting

Liposuction cost will vary based on physician experience, location, and type of procedure. Please post photos for further evaluation and treatment advice. I suggest a 4D HI DEFINITION contouring specialist if you want fat removal and contouring. An in person consult is needed to determine what is best based on your body type and skin type. Consult with a VASER Hi Definition expert to work with your personal goals and to give you the results you are seeking. Best, Dr. Emer

How much does liposuction cost?

It seems you want five areas of liposuction.
the cost will include the surgeons fee and the anesthesia and facility fee.

if it is done with local anesthesia, and you are heavy  you may need it done in two sessions, making things more complicated .

the best approach is to have one or more consultations with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon near you to find out what is involved.

please be sure it is done in an accredited surgery center.

best wishes

Liposuction - how much would it cost?

Thank you for your question. Prices for liposuction are centered around three cost centers: anesthesia, facility, and surgeon's fees. The first two are usually based on the amount of time spent in the operating room with prices that are set by the respective cost center. A surgeon has discretion in his charges to patients and this will encompass how long liposuction to all of the areas would entail.  As these three cost center will vary across the country and by each surgeon, best to see a few physicians in consultation to have a better estimate for the IN region. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your question. It is worth having multiple consultations to evaluate cost variation among surgeons in your area.
