How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat from the body. This form of surgery is often used for people with excess body fat and can be done on any part of the body, but usually involves removing it from the stomach, thighs, or buttocks.

Liposuction is performed by inserting a tube into fatty tissue and then sucking out this tissue through a tube connected to a large pump. A surgeon will use an ultrasound device to guide them in order to remove as much fat as possible without damaging other organs or tissues.

The cost of liposuction varies based on factors such as where you live and your insurance coverage, but generally ranges between $2,000 – $5,000 per session. With about 10 sessions, the average price of liposuction is about $20,000.

Anywhere from 1 to 5 liters of fat can be removed in a single session, and this depends on your size and the body part where the procedure is being done. For example, around 10 pounds of fat can typically be removed from one leg or arm, while 5 liters (about 1-2 gallons) would come from removing fat from one thigh or calf.

The overall cost also includes anesthesia and hospital fees in addition to the surgeon’s fee and other costs involved with surgery such as repairs in case there are any complications.

Liposuction has an average cost found in many procedures which range between $3,500 – $9,000, usually plus an additional $1,000 – $3,000 for anesthesia. For example in the UK liposuction in 20 ml is about £955 (around $1,500), and in Australia the price is around AUD$2195 (around USD$1600).
