Liposuction-Costs

How much is liposuction if I add more "areas" of my body to the surgery?

Most Plastic surgery clinics we called said each additional body area changes the price of liposuction surgery by $800 to $1900 or so, per area. For instance, your inner thigh liposuction is one area, outer thigh, another area, etc. Some plastic surgery doctors charge for EACH inner thigh and EACH outer thigh--be sure to ask.

Additionally, the length of time you spend in the operating room, the density of your fat, the amount of time you're under general anesthesia and your surgery recovery time have to be factored in to arrive at an accurate liposuction price tailored to your specific liposculpture needs.

How to decrease your liposuction costs


Start by asking your liposuction Doctor:

  • Can you do my liposuction procedure WITHOUT general anesthesia? (general anesthesia means you are "asleep")

  • What is the difference in liposuction prices between general anesthesia surgery, and tumescent liposuction? (or conscious sedation--where you're awake, but don't remember anything)

  • What are the dangers of liposuction surgery?

  • Is the price you quoted me the total cost of liposuction, or are there operating room fees and recovery room fees added to that price?

  • Would a mini liposuction procedure take care of my trouble spots?


If your surgery can be done without general anesthesia, you may save up to $2000 on your liposuction costs.

TIP #3: If you're prepared for surgery by being physically healthy before your procedure, and using powerful healing methods after surgery, your liposuction recovery time can markedly reduced! You may recover from surgery in half the expected time!
