Liposuction is a procedure that removes fat that you can’t get rid of through diet and exercise.
Surgeon use thin tube, called a cannula, connected to a vacuum to suction the fat from your body. Laser-assisted liposuction (Latest technique) uses a laser to produce a burst of energy to liquefy the fat. You might need to wear compression garment after surgery for 1-2 months.
The cost of Liposuction includes:
The overall cost of the procedure also varies based on the patient's condition and preferences. Some of these factors are:
Prior to your surgery, your doctor will ask you to have a complete blood count (CBC) done. In addition to this, a physical examination assessing your overall health condition and the corresponding spots for liposuction contouring is done. The package typically includes the cost of the tests and physical examination.
The medicine cost is included in the package when the patient is at the hospital. Though, once the patient leaves, the medicines bought from outside the hospital for pain reliving cost extra.
You will have to pay for the antibiotics and pain medication if need be. The sutures used for liposuction may be either non-dissolvable or dissolvable. Non-dissolvable sutures should be removed in about 1 week after surgery and in about 7 to 10 days, dissolvable sutures will disappear on their own.
It is advised to stay overnight at the hospital to help your doctor observe dehydration or any fluid changes in your body post-operation. After 3 to 5 days, you'll have to go back to your doctor to remove the garments and check on the incisions.
Since liposuction is not life-threatening or dangerous, it is not covered under a health insurance policy. You may still contact your insurance provider to find a suitable plan.
If you don’t wish to go under the knife, then you can go for a non-invasive fat reduction option such as CoolSculpting. It eliminates fat cells by freezing them to death and the procedure has no downtime. We do suggest you consult a skilled surgeon to know the best possible treatment for your problem areas.
