Liposuction - A Procedure That's Worth the Cost

Feb 10, 2008
What do you think of when you hear someone mention the "perfect body?" The phrase conjures up images of a young, scantily-clad woman worthy of a magazine cover. She counts every calorie she eats and spends most of her time doing faddish exercises like yoga. To put it simply: she's flawless.

This can be frustrating for most women, who, unlike this idealized image, are real people, and whose imperfect bodies don't always fit this paradigm of perfection. One way to help yourself achieve your physical goals more easily is to consider liposuction. Before you make any decisions, however, you need to decide precisely what procedures you want - and know the associated costs.

Many different factors affect the bottom-line cost of liposuction. These include: the location, the procedure, and the payment process.

The Location

The plastic surgeon you choose will have an enormous impact on the cost of your procedure. Many surgeons work and perform liposuction in hospitals rather than in private facilities, so you'll be assessed the typical fees associated with hospital stays (both surgical and non-surgical. But you should not try to cut costs here. Always choose an experienced surgeon; a low-quality surgeon may not give you the results you want.

The Procedure

Liposuction is a flexible procedure that has flexible costs. The main factors that affect the price of your procedure will be the size of the area you choose and how much fat is removed from that area. Generally, the arms and back are the cheapest procedures, but you should still expect to pay between $1,500 and $5,000 for these surgeries. If you choose to have abdomen or breast liposuction, you'll probably pay more - between $3,500 and $7,500.

The Payment Process

Liposuction is an expensive procedure, so knowing how you will pay for it should play an important role in your final decision. Surgery is never inexpensive, but there are many options available to help you handle the cost. Most health insurance providers do not include liposuction in their coverage plans, but you can turn to other sources. For example, a one-time loan or a credit card can help you pay. Ultimately, the decision should be based on what's best for you.

Make sure you consider each of these factors - the surgeon and location, the specific procedure you choose, and your financing plan - when you are thinkin about liposuction. It can be expensive, but when you have that perfect body, you will find that the cost was worth it.
