Hi. It would be impossible to give you an estimate without an evaluation, plus, every surgeon has his or her fee. Liposuction fees will depend on several things. For example, where it is being perfoemed, say a clinic, office or a hospital. The amount of lipo and the areas of lipo are also a determining factors. The technique used can also bump up the price. Some techniques require special devises that are expensive.   


Ultrasonic Liposuction : This popular form of liposuction uses a specialized cannula that emits ultrasonic sound waves into the fat deposits to liquefy fat cells and make them easier to remove. By utilizing ultrasound technology, the doctor can remove larger and denser fat deposits, and he or she can tighten the surrounding skin. However, there is a greater risk of burns and scarring due to the heat from the ultrasound waves.

Liposuction is often combined with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, as part of a mommy makeover. The fat that’s removed can also be purified and transferred to the face, butt, breasts, or other areas to restore lost volume or create more fullness. You’re a good candidate for liposuction if you have a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or below. If you’re looking for a weight-loss solution or cellulite treatment, liposuction isn’t your best bet.


A technique called "tumescent liposuction" is the most common method for removing fat around the stomach, buttocks, thighs and ankles. It's also considered the safest. "Tumescent" means that large amounts of buffered salt water are injected into fatty tissue beneath the skin. The doctor makes a cut in the fatty area to be treated, then inserts beneath the flesh a strawlike tube called a cannula that is attached to a vacuum. At the end of the cannula is a stiff wand. The doctor moves it back and forth in rapid motions to loosen fat. The procedure takes 45 minutes to two hours, with a recovery time of up to two weeks. The full effect of liposuction is seen six to 12 weeks after the procedure is performed. After the procedure, the area is bandaged and the patient must wear a compression garment for one to two weeks. Pain and bruising may last up to two weeks, and swelling may last for two weeks to two months.
The “crescent lift” technique is mostly used for women who have a very small amount of sagging to correct, and involves one small incision that runs halfway around the top half of the edge of the areola.  It’s usually only done when a patient is undergoing a breast augmentation, and even then only rarely. It’s more of a preventative measure, unlike the other options, which are focused on breasts that have more advanced sagging.
If you are looking for the best looking scar, or the smallest scar, that would be the Benelli. This is eventually a ‘hidden scar’ as it will eventually fade into the nipple line. Most patients are also happy with the Vertical Scar as the scar is on the underside of the breast, and not exposed horizontally on the chest wall. In my opinion, the least attractive scar is the Inverted T technique (Wise Pattern), which is really two scars.
• Vanquish uses radiofrequency energy to melt fat cells, in a painless procedure that lasts about 45 minutes. You’ll have to wait about two weeks to start seeing a difference, with full results apparent in four to eight weeks—and most people need four or more treatments to get the results they want. It has a lower Worth It Rating than either CoolSculpting or WarmSculpting.
If you have been told that you require liposuction for medical reasons, you can be certain that insurance will only cover the extent of treatment needed to relieve your symptoms. In many cases, this amount of treatment is not going to result in flattering aesthetics. As such, you should consider the benefits of paying for further treatment that will help you not only achieve relief, but also an aesthetic enhancement that can help you feel confident about your appearance. Many practices, including mine, will work with patients in need of liposuction for medical reasons to determine a more comprehensive treatment plan, often at a discounted rate.
Following liposuction, patients often experience some soreness and tenderness in the treatment area. This can usually be controlled with over-the-counter pain medication, and a physician may prescribe stronger medication, if needed. However, this discomfort is typically minimal, and patients can typically return to work about two days after their procedures. If they experience severe discomfort or if the soreness gets worse after several days, patients should alert their doctors.
Severe complications associated with liposuction are extremely rare, but should be taken into consideration when deciding whether liposuction is right for you. These complications include adverse reactions to anesthesia, cardiac arrest, cardiac arrhythmia, internal blood clots, excessive bleeding, severe drug interactions, allergic reactions to medication, permanent nerve damage, seizures, and brain damage from anesthesia.
Some people believe that they will no longer have to exercise and maintain a proper diet after liposuction. Unfortunately, this is not the case. While liposuction is an excellent way to reduce excess body fat in specific areas, the removal of fat cells is by no means a guarantee against future weight gain. The cells that are removed during liposuction will not regenerate. However, patients may find that if they do not make alterations to their exercise and diet routines after liposuction, they are more apt to gain weight in areas of their bodies that were not previously problematic.
Swelling will continue to go down for several months after liposuction, and as it subsides, patients will be able to see the final results of their treatment. Recovery will take longer if the treatment area is larger than usual. In addition to swelling, the skin surrounding the treated area may seem loose, but it will tighten with time. Depending on the skin's elasticity, which is determined by age and genetics, skin should return to normal in about six months.

• WarmSculpting with SculpSure’s diode-laser energy creates heat that kills fat cells during a 25-minute treatment, and multiple areas can be treated at the same time. There are very few side effects and zero downtime. WarmSculpting’s Worth It Rating is almost as high as that of liposuction, and it’s significantly less expensive. Just keep in mind you’ll have to wait up to three months to see your full results, and you might need two or more treatments to reach your goals.
