The price of liposuction is directly related to the time it takes to perform the procedure and is determined by the number of treatment areas and severity of each area. This is also true for VASER HD Liposuction which is the preferred method of the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute. On average, HD Lipo takes twice the amount of time as traditional Liposuction. This is because the unwanted fat must first be melted using VASER ultrasound technology. Secondly, twice as much fat can be suctioned off in comparison to traditional methods. And third, post-op cool helium plasma skin tightening is needed to counter any skin redundancy (excess skin) created by the removal of underlying fat. Another important consideration that affects cost is whether you will need to also have any skin removed (tucking procedure). The tucking or lifting procedures that may be required to supplement your liposuction include:

  • a medial thigh tuck (inner thigh lift)
  • a lateral thigh tuck (outer thigh lift)
  • a brachioplasty (arm lift)
  • a mini or full tummy tuck

It takes approximately one ½ to 2 hours per (bilateral) area depending on how prominent the area is. In general, you can expect the more treatment areas there are, the higher your cost will be. Thus, VASER high-definition liposuction starts at $5,000 per area. This price includes all of the necessary amenities: anesthesia fees, facility fees, surgeons fees, custom healing garments, and all postoperative fees.

And keep in mind, the cost of any surgery is typically determined by how long the procedure takes because staff costs are the largest component of price. Staff members can include the surgeon, anesthesiologist, scrub tech, circulating nurse, recovering nurse, and the clean up crew. Now, what does all of this mean to your pocket book? Average cost comparison of VASER vs. traditional Liposuction is listed below.

Treatment Area HD Lipo Traditional or Alternative Lipo
Chest, arms, and abdomen $10-14,000 $6-8,000
Back, flanks, love handles $9-13,000 $5-7,000
Medial and Lateral thighs $5-7,000 $4-5,000
Neck $5-6,000 $3-4000
Arms $4-6,000 $3-4000
