How much does liposuction cost?

I would like to learn how they go about pricing liposuction. Does it go by the amount of fat they remove, how long it takes them to do it, where on the body it's being applied, etc? Or might it be a combination of all those things and more?

Liposuction cost is usually priced per area according to BMI. In our office all areas themselves are the same price. For example, for BMI 28-31, it would be $1895 per area whether it is Upper or lower abdomen or inner or outter thighs etc... For area with right and left sides such as waist, hips or limbs, both sides are considered only 1 area.

Thank you for sharing your question.  This might vary by each Plastic Surgeon's office.  I charge by body site.  If someone has significantly more fat that will lead to extra time in the operating room the charge is slightly more.  I hope this was helpful to you.  If you are considering this procedure please see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area.
