How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

People often feel frustrated when they have worked to lead a healthy lifestyle but still have stubborn areas of fat remaining. Liposuction can remove areas of resistant fat to contour and slim those difficult areas. Dr. Tenley Lawton will provide you with natural-looking results that give you the sculpted figure you have worked for. 

What is Liposuction?

Dr. Lawton performs liposuction using a technique sometimes called liposculpting. Instead of removing large amounts of fat from one area, she will carefully shape the target areas to achieve more sculpted results while maintaining your natural body shape.

What is a Liposuction Procedure Like?

Less intensive liposuction can happen under local anesthesia, although Dr. Lawton may also use IV “twilight” anesthesia to maintain your comfort. Larger areas may require general anesthesia. Liposuction removes fat using a tube called a cannula that can break up and suction out fat. The amount of fat removed depends on each person’s needs. Dr. Lawton will also determine the optimal amount of fat that can be removed safely. She will use the cannula to remove fat deposits and help you achieve your body sculpting goals. 

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

Costs for any procedure will vary widely between different areas and providers. Each liposuction procedure is unique, so the only way to determine an accurate estimate is during your consultation. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports the average cost of liposuction is $3637. This does not include other fees such as anesthesia, medications, or other factors.

Where Can I Have Liposuction?

You can have liposuction almost anywhere that resistant deposits of fat can accumulate. Popular areas include:

  • Abdomen
  • Sides
  • Waistline
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Chin and neck
  • Back (also known as bra fat)
  • Chest (to treat gynecomastia)

Liposuction works almost anywhere that the body can store stubborn areas of fat. Let Dr. Lawton know about the areas that concern you most. 

What is Recovery Like From Liposuction?

You will most likely need to wear a compression garment for several days after the procedure. You will have one, or a few small incisions closed with sutures or dissolvable stitches. Sutures will come out at a follow-up appointment. 

Most people need about two weeks to recover from liposuction. Dr. Lawton’s careful and targeted approach means less bruising and swelling. You should be able to resume general activities at this point, although you should wait for Dr. Lawton’s approval before resuming more strenuous activities. 

Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?

The ideal candidate for liposuction is within about 20% of their target weight and in overall good health. People should have reasonable expectations about the procedure and results. Anyone with bleeding or clotting problems may not be a good candidate for liposuction.
