Determining Liposuction Cost
If you are considering liposuction, you probably have questions about the cost of treatment. The final cost varies from patient to patient, depending on the treatment area, the type of liposuction administered, and other factors. We encourage you to think of liposuction as an investment in your future that can provide tremendous benefits, and is worth choosing an outstanding surgeon.

Liposuction is a surgical method of removing stubborn fat deposits. Dr. Greenberg offers an advanced combination of tumescent, power-assisted, and ultrasound-assisted liposuction. First, he will inject the treatment area with a special solution, which will numb the tissues and swell the fat cells, allowing him to access and extract them more easily. He will use ultrasound and a cannula (a special tube) with a vibrating tip to break down these unwanted fat cells before suctioning them out of the body. He also offers SmartLipoTM, a technique that uses laser technology to aid in eliminating unwanted fat.
Calculating the Cost of Liposuction
Liposuction is a highly personalized procedure, and therefore costs will be different for each patient. The final cost of your treatment will depend on several factors, including:
The treatment area: If you want to treat a larger area, such as the abdomen, it may cost more than a smaller area. However, certain areas like the face, which require a high degree of skill and expertise, may also have a slightly higher price.
Scope of treatment: If you choose to address more than one part of your body, this will impact the cost of your treatment. Also, the cost of your liposuction is directly proportionate to the amount of fat removed. An extensive treatment will ultimately carry a larger price tag than a minimal treatment.
The type of liposuction you select: Laser-assisted procedures like SmartLipo™ can cost more than traditional procedures.
Anesthesia: Liposuction is performed under genera anesthesia. Dr. Greenberg works with a board-certified anesthesiologist to ensure your safety.
Liposuction: A Beneficial Investment
It is important to remember that if you choose an outstanding plastic surgeon with a proven track record, you increase your chances of achieving satisfying results such as:
A firmer figure
Better defined features
A more youthful appearance
You have everything to gain by choosing a reputable and credentialed plastic surgeon, and you should never compromise your goals in the interest of saving money. In fact, by making quality a priority over saving money, you reduce your risk of having to undergo revision liposuction or other body contouring procedures, which will cost you much more in the long run.
