Laser liposuction, a procedure that achieves superior results to liposuction, only requires a tiny incision and removes and breaks down fats in especially fatty parts of the body. Costing, on average $4,000, laser liposuction is cost effective. The procedure has a relatively large price range that results mainly from three cost factors: type of anesthesia, operating room fees, and professional fees.
Unlike its predecessor, laser liposuction does not require general anesthesia. Instead patients often use local anesthesia, a less dangerous and less expensive option. The cost of laser liposuction increases by $350 to $800 because of anesthesia. More about anesthesia..
Many surgeons have access to both local hospital facilities and private surgical suites; laser liposuction can be successfully performed at either. The cost of using the facilities and certain equipment typically is between $650 and $1850. More about operating room fees.
The level of expertise as well as the quality of results a surgeon produces may affect the professional fee. Choosing a quality, trustworthy, and board certified surgeon to perform the surgery is strongly advised. The region of the country in which the surgery is completed also affects prices; this may account for some of the noticeable cost variation.
The final cost, once decided upon, must be budgeted successfully in order to keep your experience pleasurable. Since insurance does not apply for this cosmetic procedure, financing plans exist and may lessen the difficulty of paying for this surgery.
