I recently performed liposuction for Tara, 49, an active woman who wanted to rejuvenate her figure. "Diet and exercise were not enough at this juncture in my life," Tara said. "I wanted to look - and, more importantly - feel better about my appearance both in and out of my clothes. It was definitely worth the cost. Self-confidence is always worth the cost."
Office liposuction under tumescent local anesthesia costs from about 4-7500, and more extensive procedures need to be done in the operating room under general anesthesia. Depending on the time the cost can go up to 15,000. Multiple areas are discounted in the sense that when done in the operating room under general, the additional areas are charged by the total time, not per area, which is a savings.
Thank you for your question. This is a difficult question to answer because there is not a set price for liposuction. Price should not be your determining factor for choosing who does your procedure. Your first question should be is this individual properly trained? Are they a board certified plastic surgeon? How many of these procedures do they do? Also, what is the technique that they are going to use? Prices are usually determined by the location that you want treated and the facility you are having the surgery. We do have a policy of giving larger discounts when there are multiple areas being treated at the same time. Please remember higher prices do not always equal a better result, but the lowest price may not be the best decision either. This is a decision that should be based on trust and experience.
Finally, there’s the so-called scarless lift. Women who are seeking a mild lift but are dead set against leaving scars anywhere on their breasts may opt for a technique that uses a network of dissolving surgical threads inserted through tiny incisions along the collar bone, guided under the breast tissue, and then anchored to the collar bone, to create an internal bra of sorts. Scar tissue forms around the threads, theoretically providing support to lift the nipple.
If you maintain your post-lipo weight, your surgical result should be long-lasting. But if you gain even five pounds, the fat cells in other areas of your body—as well as those that remain in the treated area—will grow larger, possibly diminishing your results. In cases of considerable weight gain, new fat cells can develop all over the body, including in the treated areas, though the area will still look better than if you didn’t have liposuction.
If you're unhappy about fat deposits around your stomach that won't surrender to diet or exercise, you have plenty of company. Liposuction is now the most popular form of cosmetic surgery in the United States, with 396,048 procedures performed in 2015, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. While there's no magic wand to make jiggly belly fat go away, liposuction may offer a solution for love handles and other unwanted forms of flab. If you're considering liposuction for your stomach, here are five things you need to know to make an informed decision.
"I placed the embrace® strips right over the areas of incision and they were great because they relieved the tension from my everyday movements, which helped to prevent more scarring. They also had silicone in the tape to help soften the scars. I didn't have to worry about remembering to apply gel or damaging my clothes, and my biggest fear of not having the surgery done in the first place was no longer a problem. Now, months after the procedure, my scars are all white and barely even noticeable."
If you deal with the hassle of body-shaping clothes (such as underwire bras) on a daily basis, then you already understand why breast lift surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures. At The Royal Centre of Plastic Surgery, women choose to undergo this cosmetic enhancement to increase confidence and enhance the shape and appearance of their breasts.
