The Cost of Liposuction and Other Concerns
Sometimes there are problems areas of the body that we'd like to improve or change in some way. The change doesn't need to be drastic, either. Take the last bit of flab in the triceps and shoulders, for instance. Or many it's the love handles. Perhaps you're dealing with saddlebags or just a bit of fat the just won't go away. One of the most effective ways to get rid of that last bit of problem fat is undergoing plastic surgery. Specifically, it helps to undergo a liposuction.
Liposuction is a cosmetic fat removal and reduction surgery that helps people lose that last problematic bit of fat from various parts of the body. Liposuction can easily rid patients of fat around the abdominal area, the buttocks, the hips, the thighs, the upper arms, the back, and so on.
Now, liposuction is not inexpensive. We'd like to take a few minutes right now to go over some of the basic pricing and payment concerns that our patients have had.
Average Cost of Liposuction
The average cost of liposuction can vary from patient to patient based on a whole range of factors. For this reason, providing an average cost or even a basic price range regarding the cost of treatment won't paint a full or accurate picture about the surgery itself.
We encourage you to visit with us for a consultation so that we can provide a personalized price quote and explain how the cost of your treatment breaks down.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Liposuction
Some of the factors that affect the cost of liposuction include:
- The credentials of the cosmetic plastic surgeons performing the surgery
- The location of the cosmetic plastic surgery center
- Special techniques or technologies involved in care (e.g., SmartLipo)
- The complexity of the patient's case
- Combination body contouring treatments (e.g., total body lift, mommy makeover)
- Special promotion or deals that are unique to an individual practice
Insurance Coverage and Liposuction
Many patients ask us if liposuction is covered by health insurance. By and large, the answer is usually no. Liposuction is considered an elective procedure, and because of this, it is not deemed medically necessary. It may still be worth asking your cosmetic plastic surgeon and insurance provider just in case since policies can vary as can personal circumstances.
Financing Options for Liposuction
Given that the total cost of a liposuction treatment can place a financial burden on an individual or a household, we're happy to offer financing options to pay for liposuction and other body sculpting surgeries. These payment plans help place aesthetic enhancement in reach for many people.
It's best to think of these financing plans like a credit card or any other kind of traditional loan. A trusted lending institution will cover the total cost of the surgery, and patients will pay back the lender on a monthly basis. A reasonable interest rate will apply to the total cost of the surgical treatment.
