If you want to look your absolute best, there are many things that you can do. Obviously it’s important to be as fit and as healthy as possible. That means eating right, staying hydrated, and exercising regularly. And yet even if you take good care of yourself, there may be problematic pockets of fat in different parts of you body that will not respond to diet and exercise. Rest assured that this is not just a problem you face. Countless others do as well.
The only way to address these problems is to undergo plastic surgery, specifically liposuction. Let’s look at pricing and payment issues related to this surgery right now.
Liposuction is an aesthetic fat removal surgery that can be performed on different parts of the body as needed. During the liposuction, carefully applied suction is used to extract pockets of fat, making a person look slimmer and more fit. We should note that liposuction is cosmetic in nature and not intended as a weight loss option.
The Average Cost of Liposuction
The average cost of liposuction can actually vary a fair amount for a whole variety of reasons. It’s because of this that we feel that providing a national average cost or even a general price range isn’t going to convey the whole story about the cost of liposuction. We instead encourage you to visit our practice for a consultation so that you can receive a customized price quote and a full cost breakdown as well.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Liposuction
There are many different factors that affect the cost of liposuction. Some of these include:
- The location of the cosmetic surgery practice
- The credentials/training of the plastic surgeon(s)
- The complexity of the patient’s case
- The need for combination body contouring surgery
- Special technologies or techniques used at the practice
- Promotions or discounts unique to the practice
Liposuction and Insurance Coverage
Since liposuction is a cosmetic surgery, it is not covered by medical insurance. This is the case with all elective procedures. Your insurance company may provide some coverage if you meet very specific criteria, so it may be helpful to check with your insurance provider just in case. Keep in mind, however, that it is very unlikely that you will receive any insurance coverage for liposuction.
Monthly Financing Plans for Liposuction
Because the total cost of liposuction may prove prohibitive for many people, there are monthly financing plans out there for liposuction that can put the procedure within reach. These financing plans are similar in a lot of ways to credit cards and traditional loans in that a financial institution/lender will pay for the total cost of the surgery upfront. The patient is then responsible for paying back the total cost of this loan on a monthly basis. A reasonable interest rate will apply to the total cost of the loan.
