Is Liposuction Worth the Price?
Liposuction has been one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for decades. That may be because, time and again, it has proven to help patients resolve an issue that plagues many people all over the country: isolated pockets of excess fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
The benefits of liposuction are numerous, especially now that the procedure has become highly advanced over the years, offering patients more precise results and an easier treatment process. Advantages of liposuction include:
- Removal of excess fat from virtually any area of the body
- A more contoured appearance
- Techniques that allow for easier removal of fat from the targeted areas
- Long-term results
- Recovery is typically minimal
The cost of liposuction is largely dependent on the size of the target area and the extent of treatment necessary for optimal results. In addition to the surgeon’s fee, the costs of hospital facilities, anesthesia, pre-operative testing, post-operative compression garments, and prescription medication will be factors in the overall cost of liposuction.
You may have heard of other, non-surgical fat removal techniques and wonder if one of them might be right for you. At Pinsky Plastic Surgery, we offer both surgical and non-surgical fat removal. Our two CoolSculpting® machines can be used to reduce twice the fat in half the time. We offer both surgical and non-surgical methods because not everyone benefits from surgery and not everyone benefits from CoolSculpting®. The amount of fat removal desired, the location(s), and your general health are often key factors in determining which procedure is best for you.
It’s important to remember that ensuring you are receiving care from skilled, board-certified plastic surgeons should outweigh the potential cost benefit from going to a less trained or less experienced surgeon for liposuction or any other plastic surgery treatment. Dr. Mark Pinsky is highly experienced in body contouring procedures such as liposuction, and is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. For patients who are looking for ways to bring the cost of treatment into their budget, Pinsky Plastic Surgery offers a comprehensive range of payment and financing options that can make liposuction a very convenient and affordable procedure.
During your initial consultation, we can talk with you about the benefits, costs, and all other aspects of liposuction or CoolSculpting® and help you determine the best options for your needs.
