For many individuals, it’s simply not enough to eat right and get plenty of exercise. Thanks to a combination of hormonal changes, diet, and even genetics, these people may have a tough time maintaining or achieving a streamlined appearance. Fat deposits become difficult to shed, resulting in love handles, a bulging stomach, or larger thighs.
If you’re having trouble shedding unwanted fat, despite your healthy diet and exercise regimen, it might be time to turn to Liposuction for extra help. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a small cannula to break up and drain those stubborn fat deposits. Liposuction is a very common and safe procedure; in fact, it was the #1 performed plastic surgery procedure in the United States in 2013.
While you may be interested in getting rid of those unwanted bulges via Liposuction, you may have one thing that’s holding you back from getting the surgery: How much does liposuction typically cost?
The answer is, it all depends on the area you’re looking to treat. Liposuction isn’t a one-size-fits-all procedure; for example, you’ll pay less for the procedure if you’re getting your arms treated as opposed to your stomach and love handles. Additionally, the total cost of Liposuction includes surgical fees, the cost of anesthesia, and medications.
In general, patients can expect to spend anywhere from $2,000 to $3,500 for the Liposuction procedure alone. The final cost will depend on what areas you’d like treated, how much fat needs to be removed, and other costs associated with the procedure.
Keep in mind that Liposuction isn’t exactly something you want discounted. While it may be tempting to pick a plastic surgeon based on the total cost of the procedure, doing so could put your health at risk. Instead, choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon with a long, demonstrable history of successful Liposuction procedures.
