How much does high-definition liposuction cost? High-definition liposuction cost is determined by several factors, which ultimately are determined by the length of surgery.
Length of surgery is ultimately affected by several factors that include:
- patient size or BMI
- the number of desired areas of liposuction
- whether abdominal etching is desired, and
- history of prior liposuction, cool sculpting, and gastric bypass.
BMI affects high definition liposuction cost
The size of the patient is best characterized by patient BMI, which stands for body mass index. Body mass index is determined by a fancy calculation that uses the patient height and weight. The BMI is a universal standard that gauges the overall size of the patient.
The size of the patient or BMI directly affects the time required to complete your high-definition liposuction surgery. It is intuitive that the larger the area that needs to be liposuctioned, the longer it will take to get the fat out.
In addition, the higher the BMI, the more likely it is that your liposuction must be combined with the removal of redundant skin. Removal of skin requires surgical excisions that must be repaired. Sewing of excision lines will require additional time to complete since this is done very meticulously and in multiple layers.
Number of desired areas of liposuction
Several desired areas of liposuction will directly affect the time required to complete the surgery. High-definition liposuction and body contouring prefer to treat all areas of concern. The enumerated all-inclusive regions can include the abdomen, armpit, arms, upper back, middle back, lower back, flanks, lateral thighs, medial thighs, calves, and neck. However, not every patient requires all of these areas treated. As such, the number of regions treated will affect the cost of your high-definition body contouring.
Abdominal etching must be differentiated with abdominal liposuction. Whereas abdominal liposuction will uniformly remove all of the deep fat, abdominal liposuction requires selective removal of the superficial fat to create muscle highlights. Removal of external fat requires not only additional skill but also additional surgical time. As a result, it is understandable that abdominal etching will have a higher high-definition liposuction cost.
History of prior liposuction
History of prior liposuction will affect your high-definition liposuction cost. Liposuction of soft tissues previously liposuction is significantly more complex than a patient who has not had liposuction. This is because liposuction will inevitably cause significant scarring of the smooth tissue plane.
Although scarring of the soft tissues is not a concern for us, we use ultrasound-assisted liposuction to remove any residual fat and all of the scar tissue. However, liposuction of scar tissue feels like concrete and does take 50% longer than liposuction of virgin areas.
History of cool sculpting
History of excellent sculpting results in soft tissue beds that are scarred even worse than the history of prior liposuction. This makes liposuction of these areas challenging, needing ultrasound-assisted liposuction as a necessity for removing fat. Even the use of ultrasound-assisted liposuction requires increasing the power on the VASER machine from 70% to 80% to remove the fat.
History of gastric bypass and massive weight loss
History of gastric bypass and subsequent massive weight loss results in a more complex surgical plan as it often requires surgical excisions of several areas. This may include the breasts, arms, tummy, lower back and buttock, upper back, and medial thighs. In addition to the extra time required to repair all of these surgical excision lines, these patients will also require liposuction to smoothen out contour lines and junctions between various areas. In addition, gastric bypass patients usually have a low blood count.
Although all efforts are made to raise your blood count, often, gastric bypass patients cannot elevate their blood counts to be able to undergo 360 high definition liposuction. Patients desiring to experience circumferential high definition body contouring must have minimum hemoglobin of 13.0. Additionally, patients who wish to undergo high-definition body contouring of a single side (front or back) must have minimum hemoglobin of 11.0.
In summary, gastric bypass patients may require two surgeries if they cannot maintain appropriate blood counts, thus naturally making their high-definition liposuction cost higher.
High Definition Liposuction Cost Conclusion
In summary, high-definition liposuction cost is determined by multiple factors that ultimately affect the length of your surgery. Following a comprehensive consultation, you can obtain your personalized high-definition liposuction cost.
