Liposuction price is dictated by the extent of surgery and duration of liposuction times. Extent of surgery is determined by whether liposuction alone or skin tightening is required. Skin tightening might require minimally invasive, non-excisional Renuvion J plasma or more aggressive surgical excision surgery. Renuvion J plasma utilizes a unique combined helium plasma and radiofrequency energy administered through a sleek wand. It avoids any incisions other than the port sites used to perform liposuction. It does take approximately 10 minutes to treat an area and can add up to one hour to your surgery when performing full body contouring. Excisional surgery requires cutting of tissues and subsequently surgical repair of tissues. Excisional and repair of tissues can add another 1 to 3 hours of surgical time depending on the extent of tucking required.
Liposuction price is also determined by the number of areas and amount of excess fat requiring removal. Localized areas of liposuction can be completed within one hour of surgery, but total body contouring liposuction may require 3 to 4 hours of liposuction. Another consideration is whether you undergo high definition liposuction which is a more comprehensive removal of fat. Patients undergoing high definition liposuction will require another 1 to 2 hours of liposuction time.
In summary, liposuction price is affected by the extent of surgical procedures required as well as total liposuction time. The actual liposuction price is based on the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia fee, and facility fee. Miscellaneous fees include the cost of seeing your primary care physician for preoperative clearance, paying for your postoperative medications, garment fees, and fees to complete your postoperative lymphatic messages.
