How will I be evaluated for liposuction?
The liposuction candidate will go to a consultation so a board certified plastic surgeon can evaluate if liposuction will benefit them. The surgeon will want to discuss the interested liposuction candidate’s medical history, in addition to your physical traits and goals they wish to attain through liposuction. The more honest the liposuction candidate is with the surgeon, the more likely the individual will be happy with their results because the surgeon can inform the candidate if the desired liposuction results are attainable.

Are there any risks involved with a liposuction?
Every surgical procedure has risks and liposuction is no different, but the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons has recognized liposuction as a safe and effective method of removing localized fat areas. The most common risks of liposuction include infection, allergic reactions to anesthesia or to medications, friction burns, organ damage, fluid accumulation, blood clots, excessive fluid loss, and long healing time. The amount of fat being removed can increase the risk of liposuction because more fat will take longer to operate on.

How quickly will liposuction recovery take?
Liposuction patients are able to take care of themselves and move around within a 24-hour period following the surgical procedure. When large amounts of fat are removed a slightly longer recovery period may be necessary. Liposuction recovery will vary depending on individual factors and surgical complications.

Will I Have Scars From Liposuction?
Scars are a normal occurrence when incisions have been made. Liposuction is no different since it involves incisions, however the surgeon will carefully treat and place incisions in areas that are better concealed or in creases. Over time the scars from liposuction will begin to fade until they are hardly noticeable. There will always be a hint of a scar remaining after liposuction.

What is the average liposuction cost?
Liposuction is considered a cosmetic surgical procedure and will not be covered by insurance. Typically, liposuction will cost an individual between $5,000- $10,000, but your liposuction surgeon will have a more specific idea of the liposuction cost after a consultation. On average, liposuction in the U.S. costs $2,000 per body area treated.

Will the fat return after a liposuction?
If the liposuction patient gains weight the entire body will distribute the fat because the treated area no longer has the same capacity to store additional fat because a large portion of the fat cells were removed.
