What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is an invasive procedure to remove lipid, or fat deposits. Liposuction can be done in almost all areas of the body where excessive body fat has accumulated. The cost of liposuction is dependent on a number of factors, such as the areas being liposuctioned, the type of liposuction, and the patients desired goals.
What is the Average Price?
The average price of a liposuction procedure is between $4,500 and $8,000. This price covers all costs associated with surgery, such as labs & blood work, preoperative clearance (if needed), general anesthesia, follow up visits, post-surgical garment, surgeon fees, and staff fees. Patients looking to transfer liposuctioned fat to the butt for a natural round rear can expect the total cost to be $6,500. If a patient only wants a small amount of fat removed, such as love handles or back fat associated with bra use, surgery can be performed under local anesthesia or sedation, which would lower the cost of surgery to about $2,000. However, most of our procedures are done using general anesthesia, as this is the safest way to remove larger amounts of fat.
Which Areas Can I Liposuction?
The areas where liposuction is performed includes but is not limited to, abdomen, flanks, love handles, back, arms, inner thighs, outer thighs, neck, and cheeks. Depending on the areas being liposuctioned and the patient’s desired goals, our surgeons may decide to perform tumescent assisted liposuction or ultrasound assisted liposuction. Patients looking to simply remove fat are usually recommended ultrasound assisted liposuction because not only is fat removed but also the skin is tightened to the body using laser technology. For patients wanting liposuction followed by fat transfer to other areas like the buttocks or face, tumescent liposuction is the proper technique because the fat cells are kept alive during liposuction. Ultrasound and Laser liposuction destroy these fat cells during surgery and make them unsuitable for transfer. Our Miami office is fully equipped to perform Ultrasound, Laser and Tumescent liposuction.
