Q: What is the cost of tummy liposuction?
A: This seemingly simple question is actually more complex that it appears. When people request liposuction of their stomachs, and its associated fees, they often are under a false perception that this is what will work for them. About half of the patients that I see for tummy liposuction do not need or do not get that procedure. Many actually need a tummy tuck due to their excess and loose tummy skin. But assuming that liposuction of the stomach is the right procedure, there are other variables that will affect the time and cost of performing the procedure. Does the whole stomach need to be done or just the lower half? Does the flanks or muffin tops along the waistline need to be done in addition to the stomach to get a better overall result? All of these affects both the results and cost of the liposuction procedure. This makes for a cost range of between $4000 to $5500 depending upon how much work needs to be done.
