What is the Pricing for Liposuction/liposculpture on the Inner Thighs or Calves?

My legs have always been a problem, as they are much fatter than my upper half. Exercise and dieting has never been able to rid of the fat on my calves and inner thighs. What is the price around, for liposuction or liposculpture on these areas for the New York City area?

The price ranges from $1500 to $3000 depending on the extent of the work that needs to be done.  This procedure is the tumescent technique with IV sedation as needed performed with micro cannulas.

In Los Angeles, inner thighs, knees, calves and ankles run about $5-6000 on special.

Liposuction varies a lot from person to person depending on the size and areas to be liposculptured but $5-6000 on special is a good estimate for the above areas by tumescent technique local anesthesia with the micro cannulas which I feel is the top of the line liposculpturing.  Don't be taken in by cheap laser liposuctions since they can have more dimpling, puckering and burns in some cases and are cheaper because of that.  Sincerely,

-- 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!

Thank you for your question.

Each office / each surgeon's pricing varies depending on the surgeon's experience and credentials, where the surgery is performed, the type of anesthesia, etc. I would recommend that you make sure you are comfortable with the surgeon you choose and ask to see examples of their work.

In general, pricing depends on how much time will be needed in the operating room.

Best wishes.

Stubborn fat in the calves and ankles or “cankles” can be difficult to improve with just diet and exercise and patients who experiences this can benefit from liposuction. Calf and ankle liposuction can be performed as an outpatient procedure in a fully accredited ambulatory surgery facility with "twilight" anesthesia administered by a board certified anesthesiologist. I use several innovative forms of liposuction, including SmartLipo, in order to contour and resculpture the calves and ankles while providing the most beautiful results with minimal scarring. SmartLipo, used in combination with other forms of liposuction or alone, is a procedure that uses laser light to liquefy fat and tighten the surrounding skin. It involves less downtime and side-effects than traditional liposuction and is particularly good for small areas of fat deposits like the ankles. Liposuction works best on patients who are of relatively average weight, but who need help with a problem area. No, reshaping your body isn’t as easy as going to the beauty parlor. Surgery is never 100% risk free and the healing process requires patience and determination.

If you want Liposuction/liposculpture first seek expertise and then price.

No amount of money can compensate for a bad lipo job on the inner thighs or legs.  Please take the time to find out who is the best and most respected liposuction surgeon in your area and then save enough money to get the best treatment you possibly can.   Buy cheap shoes and clothing, not cheap liposuction!

Liposculpting prices vary by physician and geographic area.  Considerations for pricing include:

  1. experience of the surgeon
  2. whether the procedure is done under general anesthesia
  3. the amount of work necessary to achieve your goals
  4. geographic variabilities (New York will be more expensive than Kansas)
  5. the type of technology used (Smartlipo, VASER, Power Assisted Liposuction etc.)

Risky areas for liposuction

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

Price aside, please understand that if you have heavy legs, you will still likely be unhappy with them even after liposuction.  This is especially true since the inner thighs and calves are among the most dangerous areas to suction with high risks of complications.  Be careful here and consider if the procedure is really for you regardless of the price.

Liposuction cost

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

Typically, tumescent liposuction (done under local anesthesia in the office) costs $2000-$3000 per area (inner vs. outer thighs, upper vs. lower abdomen, flanks, back, etc.).  When more than one area is treated, there tends to be a discount for each area added.
