Liposuction plastic surgery
Liposuction cosmetic surgery is usually considered an elective procedure to enhance your body image. Therefore, you may be required to pay the costs out of pocket because your insurance provider will not cover the treatment. It is best to discuss the costs and financing options with your surgeon during your initial consultation in order to make a judicious choice.
A committed surgeon will inform you about all the costs involved in liposuction in an accurate and transparent manner. Feel free to ask questions and clear all doubts before you go ahead with your surgery. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides liposuction surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Several factors will impact the final cost of your liposuction body contouring plastic surgery.
Size of the Treatment Area
You may require a larger amount of fat removal, if the surface area of treatment is large, such as the abdomen, buttocks, breasts or thighs. The cost of treatment for these areas may be higher than what you may have to pay for fat removal from smaller areas such as the knees, calves, or under the chin.
Number of Areas to be Treated
If you have multiple areas to be treated for fat removal, your costs of procedure may be higher compared to the treatment in a single area. If you combine liposuction with another surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedure, the overall costs will go up further.
Whether you are undergoing a traditional or tumescent liposuction surgery can affect the final costs of the procedure. If general anesthesia is involved (traditional liposuction) you should account for the anesthesiologist’s fee as well. For laser or ultrasound assisted liposuction, the costs may be higher because of the use of advanced technologies.
Practice Location and Surgeon’s Skills
The cost of living varies from one city to another. Depending on where a plastic surgery practice is located, they may charge according to the prevailing price trends in that area.
Experienced and highly skilled liposuction surgeons may charge a slightly higher fee compared to less qualified or less experienced surgeons. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it makes sense to prioritize the quality standards and skills of a surgeon rather than the fee for a life altering procedure such as liposuction.
Additional Costs of Surgery
In addition to the surgeon’s fee, you should also consider various other cost components that will constitute the overall cost of your liposuction procedure:
- Anesthesia costs
- Surgical center expenses
- Pre- and post-operative tests
- Prescription medications
- Compression garments
- Post-operative appointments with the surgeon
Check with your surgeon during the initial consultation about all the pre- and post-surgical costs, so that you have an accurate estimate of your costs of liposuction surgery and can budget for it accordingly.
It is easy to obtain third party financing nowadays from specialized medical care financing firms that will offer you quick loan approvals, competitive rates, and convenient monthly installments.
