How Much Does Liposuction Cost ?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is used for removing excess fat between skin and muscle from different parts of the body to improve body contour. The surgical procedure uses a stainless steel tube which is inserted in the area where the fat needs to be removed and uses a suction pump to do the removal. Such fat removal will reduce heart and liver related complications later.

The cost of liposuction depends on how many areas that are to treated, the body location that is to be treated, the amount of fat that is going to be removed, the time and effort that the surgeon is called upon to invest. In some clinics the cost may include facility fees, cost of compression garments that are to be worn after surgery and blood test fees etc. Fees for anesthesia and operation room charges also will have to be included.

Following is a list of approximate liposuction costs in the US:  

Upper and lower abdomen - $3000 -$7500
            Lower abdomen - $2000-$2500 
            Arms - $1500-$2500
            Back - $1500-$4000
            Breasts - $3000-$5000
Care has to be taken while choosing the doctor and the clinic.

The cost of such procedures also depends on which part of the world we are living in. Medical facilities have improved in developing countries.
