Prices and Payment Options for Liposuction
By Sheryl Pilcher on November 06, 2013
There are a multitude of factors to take into account when considering liposuction, such as your overall health, the method of liposuction, possible risks factors, and the resulting cost. Most of a patient’s concerns can be assuaged through a professional consultation, including any uncertainty about the procedure’s affordability. If you would like to know more regarding a prospective liposuction, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Pilcher at our San Antonio office. From there, you can learn how this plastic surgery procedure can meet your individual goals and financial needs.
What Determines Liposuction Cost?
Because no two people are exactly alike, every surgery will vary slightly to accommodate each patient’s needs. The size and nature of one’s body can make a liposuction procedure longer or more complex, leading to a relatively higher cost than patients with shorter, simpler procedures.
The area of liposuction is another point to consider, as some regions of the body inherently present greater challenges or require more work. The upper and lower abdomen, for example, will likely result in a higher cost than the buttocks or lower abdomen alone. Similarly, female breasts tend to be more costly than the male breast area.
Although you can attempt to get an idea of national or regional prices online, every plastic surgeon is different, and only through a private consultation can you receive an accurate quote for your own procedure.
Set Goals With Your Doctor
Before consulting with a plastic surgeon, many patients only have a rough idea of what they want to achieve - generally, they want effective liposuction results at an affordable price. While this is certainly possible, it also helps to gain a more in depth understanding of available treatment options, surgical techniques, and personal goals.
During a meeting with Dr. Pilcher, you can explain exactly what you want your results to look like, and determine which methods will yield the best results for you in the safest way. Some patients realize that a combination of different body contouring techniques, such as liposuction coupled with a tummy tuck, may be most effective for them; others realize that their best option is actually a different treatment altogether. Once you’ve had this conversation with your doctor and settled on the specifics of your surgery, an accurate price can be gauged.
