If you struggle with body fat, and diet and exercise still aren’t getting you the results you want, you can always opt for liposuction as an option. This cosmetic surgery procedure has been used for many years and helped many people gain the body they want. Use the following information to find out everything you want to know about the procedure, including liposuction cost, purpose, and process.
As mentioned above, the cost of liposuction will vary, but you can typically expect it to cost you around $4,000. At Boulder Plastic Surgery, this cost includes a single or paired area, and then any additional paired area will cost an additional $2,500. This price includes the price of the surgeon, the operating room, and the anesthesia, so you don’t have to worry about additional unexpected costs.
Keep in mind that some insurance companies may cover some of the cost of the liposuction, and some will not. Always contact your insurance provider to see if and how you’re covered to help you determine the total cost.
Some people think that liposuction is used to reduce body weight, but that’s not the case. Instead, liposuction is done to receive the body shape that one desires, such as thinner thighs or a tighter butt. Typically, these will be the problem areas that do not respond to diet and/or exercise. While thighs and hips tend to be the most popular, it’s not uncommon for someone to receive liposuction on the arms, neck, or even face.
It’s also important to note that liposuction will not treat cellulite and is not an effective treatment for obesity. If you suffer from either of these, then you should consult your physician.
Because liposuction has been performed for many years, the procedure itself has been advanced, making it easier and less invasive. During the procedure, a tube and vacuum device are used to remove unwanted fat deposits in certain areas of the body, such as the thighs, stomach, or buttocks. With this procedure, the recipient is able to enhance their body shape.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure, so you need to understand that you will have to recover after surgery. While you should start feeling like yourself after a few days, it may take a few months for the swelling to totally go away and for you to receive the exact shape you want.
