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. Moreover, HD Liposuction takes on average, 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. Lastly, post-op cool helium plasma skin tightening is needed to counter any skin redundancy (excess skin) created by the removal of underlying fat. Additionally, 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
Length of Lipo Procedure
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 cost starts at $5,000 per area. Furthermore, this price includes all of the necessary amenities: anesthesia fees, facility fees, surgeons fees, custom healing garments, and all postoperative fees.
Next, keep in mind that 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 pocketbook?

|Treatment Area||HD Lipo||Traditional or Alternative Lipo|
|Chest, arms, and abdomen||$10-14,000||$6-8,000|
