What Is The Cost Of Liposuction?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am curious about having liposuction on my abdomen and thighs what is the average cost, I want to remove about 15lbs.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. While it would be helpful to see some pictures of your abdomen and thighs, let me ask you a few questions in regards both areas:
1) Is this your full abdomen?
2) Do you need the flanks or muffin tops t.reated as well as your abdomen?
3) Do the thighs include both sides, inner and outer? Knees?
When considering cost, knowing exactly what areas needs to be treated as this allows the time to do the procedure to be properly determined. Fundamentally, liposuction like all cosmetic surgery and its cost revolves around the timer to do it.
While 15 lbs of aspirate (1 liter of liposuction aspirate roughly equals 8 lbs) may be removed in surgery, this does not necessarily mean that will translate into 15 lbs of actual body weight lost.
