2 Important Considerations About Liposuction Costs for Women

Excess weight can be stubborn to deal with. Women usually have a hard time getting rid of the unwanted fat deposits in their bodies because of ineffective dieting, lack of focus or motivation, and hormonal fluctuations. When everything seems so hopeless already, liposuction is usually the last resort.  A woman is already qualified for a liposuction procedure if there are areas in the body that are resistant to exercise and diet;  she already has a stable weight for six months, maybe more; the patient has good skin elasticity and tone; the patient doesn’t have loose skin;  the patient doesn’t have stretch marks;  the patient is emotionally stable; the patient is well=oriented with the risks involved; and if the patient has expectations that are realistic. For women who would want to have at least five liters of body fat removed, an overnight stay in the hospital should already be expected.

There are many types of liposuction procedures but generally, you will undergo an administration of anesthesia (local, sedation, or general), an sterile operating room  will be used, and the procedure will last from 30 min to 4 hrs. Women have fat deposits that are less fibrous and are much softer than those of a man. This fact makes it easier for the surgeon to perform any of the following types of liposuction:

a)      Tumescent liposuction

b)      Ultrasonic liposuction

c)       SAL (suction-assisted liposuction)

d)      UAL (ultrasound-assisted liposuction)

e)      E-UAL (external ultrasound-assisted liposuction)

f)       PAL (power-assisted liposuction)

g)      VAL (VASER-assisted liposuction)


Liposuction costs for women depend on so many factors. It is expected that the procedure would really require you to spend a significant amount of money, especially if you want to make sure of your overall safety. Here are some important details that you should take note of with regard to Liposuction costs for women:


1. Estimations

Liposuction costs for women vary from one institution to another but the estimated cost of a liposuction is about two thousand to ten thousand dollars. If you would like to have the procedure done on specific areas of the body there are specific price ranges for each—for the abdomen, 3,800 to 8,700 USD; for the chin to neck area, 2,500 to 5,000 USD; for arms, 2,000 to 5,500 USD; for the knees and anterior part of the thighs, 2,800 to 5,800 USD;  for the back, 2,000 to 4,500 USD; for the knees and inner thighs, 2,800 to 5,800 USD; for the breasts, 3,500 to 8,000 USD;  for the hips or waist, 2,100 to 5,500 USD; for the buttocks, 2,000 to 5,000 USD; and for the outer thighs, 2,100 to 5,500 USD. Given the various areas where liposuction can be applied, there are additional fees that you should still have to consider like the surgeon’s fee, the facility fee, and the anesthesiologist’s fee. With these, the average cost that you should consider for one targeted area is about 3,500 USD; for three areas of your body, the total fee would be 6,800 USD; and if you want five areas of your body done, then you should prepare a total of 9,700 USD. Some of the fees that can be performed on you and are still related to the liposuction procedure are cellulite massage, buttock lift, lower body lift, laser treatment (leg veins), sclerotherapy, upper arm lift, tummy tuck, and thigh lift. You should take note that the fees depend on the area and the specific needs of the patient.


2. Factors

There are various factors that influence the liposuction costs for women. These can be the length  of the surgery, the size of the woman’s body, degree of complication, the location of the surgeon who will handle the patient, number of specific targeted areas, degree of the surgeon’s experience, fees for the use of the operating room, the anesthesiologist’s fees, equipment costs, and the laboratory fees. Just like other surgical procedures, you have to be ready for any additional fees that you may have to pay after your liposuction.



Liposuction is something that you should really think about. Remember, you go under the knife here and there are many risks that you have to take. But if you are really in need of liposuction, especially because of health reasons, then you should really prepare for it emotionally, physically, mentally, and of course, financially. Liposuction costs for women should be studied well to make sure that you get what you pay for. Be meticulous in the actual steps that you are going to take from consultation right up to the recovery stage of liposuction.  Make sure that you work with a reliable surgeon and health facility that will be worth everything that you have on the line.
