Liposuction is a very widespread and popular cosmetic surgical procedure performed throughout the known world. More and more people go through this surgical procedure every year. Due to this upsurge in demand, cosmetic surgeons from all around the globe have been vying for a piece of the liposuction pie by offering lowered prices on liposuction.
To elaborate on the procedure itself, liposuction is the removal of human body fat from specific areas of the body by separating fatty deposits and then removing these by suction, sculpting the body part according to a pre determined shape, size and form. The plastic surgeon does this by administering local or general anesthesia, depending on the area of the body to be treated and then makes incisions small incisions to accommodate the cannula, this is a tube like surgical tool attached to rubber tubes that are connected to a machine that creates a vacuum that makes it possible for plastic surgeons to suction out the fat.
The surgical procedure allows the plastic surgeon to sculpt the body part into the desired shape or from or as close to it as possible, that is why liposuction is also known today as liposculpture. Prices on liposuction depend on a lot of factors but the main thing that drives the cost is the amount of time and effort it takes for a plastic surgeon to complete a procedure. Other factors include; the size of the area to be treated with liposuction, with the tummy, hips, and buttocks being more expensive, the method or technique of liposuction being used, like is it liposuction with tumescent fluids, laser lipo, ultrasonic lipo, micro-cannula with tumescent liposuction so on and so forth. Other miscellaneous fees that are naturally included of course are the operating room cost if your procedure is to be carried out inside one, anesthesiologist fees, medications and medical consumables.
Prices on liposuction can be from $1,500 USD per treatment, depending on the area of the body to $12,000 USD per treatment comprising several areas of the body simultaneously undergoing liposuction surgery. Cost can vary also depending on where exactly you’re getting your liposuction prices in Europe and the United States are pretty close, other areas like in Latin America, India and other Asia nations offer much more lower cost due mainly to lower professional fees for the plastic surgeons and lower miscellaneous fees over all. Question is, does cheap mean quality; it maybe so in some countries and expensive does not automatically mean quality either. To secure the best prices on liposuction it’s prudent to research well and to consult as many plastic surgeons as possible to enable you to compare prices accurately.
