How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
Do you have an active lifestyle, exercise often and eat a healthy diet, but just can’t seem to shake the fat in certain parts of your body? You’re not alone. Sometimes the waist, butt and thighs just won’t tighten up. Liposuction surgery might be a good option to improve your body contour and remove pesky fatty deposits. But you might be wondering – how much does liposuction cost?
There are different sources online that can give you a starting point on lipo prices. Take note though – these estimates usually don’t account for the cost for anesthesia, operating room expenses and any other needs specific to your surgical plan. Your best bet is to have a one-on-one consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. If you’re not ready for a consultation just yet, check out our comprehensive cosmetic surgery pricing calculator.
In the meantime, below is a detailed guide to help you figure out the cost for liposuction. Scroll through the breakdown of typical fees for this cosmetic procedure.
Liposuction Cost – Anesthesia
General anesthesia during a liposuction procedure helps keep you safe and comfortable in the operating room. Anesthesia is typically provided by anesthesiologists and certified nurse anesthetists. The liposuction cost for anesthesia can fall in the $500 to $800 range.
Liposuction Cost – Operating Room
Operating room expenses should be factored into the total cost of a liposuction procedure. Tannan Plastic Surgery offices and operating room space are located in the Brier Creek Medical Park in Raleigh, NC. Driving from Cary, Apex, Durham, Chapel Hill and nearby areas typically takes less than 20 minutes. Following a surgical consultation with Dr. Tannan, we give you a tour of the operating facilities and recovery room.
Wherever you decide to go, we recommend that you look for AAAASF certification to ensure your safety. To accommodate the highest quality of operating room resources and time to perform this procedure, the cost for performing liposuction in a certified operating room might range from $500 to $800.
Liposuction Cost – Surgeon Fees
The national average for a board certified plastic surgeon’s fees for liposuction in 2016 was $3,200. Depending on where on your body you are having the lipo, and on where you live in the U.S., the surgeon fees might be higher or lower to account for these differences.
