How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

When considering liposuction, the first question many of our clients at the MODERN Plastic Surgery & Medspa ask is: “How much will it cost?” It’s a reasonable question, but the answer isn’t as straightforward as you might think. The cost of liposuction varies greatly and is influenced by a range of factors, including the following 7 considerations:

1. Advanced Technology & Techniques

The technology and techniques we use affect the price. In addition to traditional liposuction, we offer liposuction using the advanced VASERlipo® system, which employs ultrasound energy to target fat cells precisely, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. We also specialize in high-definition liposuction techniques.

Hi-Def liposculpture takes body contouring to the next level, allowing for a more sculpted, athletic appearance. This technique is especially effective for defining abdominal muscles and enhancing the body’s natural contours.

The benefits of using advanced technology include detailed contouring, less downtime for recovery, and more defined results.

2. Expertise Matters

Would you trust your body to just anyone? Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters is a Total Definer Master in Hi-Def lipo, having trained directly with the innovator of this precise liposculpture technique. His expertise factors into the pricing since patients receive the highest quality care and outcomes.

3. The Body Area Treated

Liposuction is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. The cost varies based on the area of the body being treated. For instance, fine-tuning smaller areas, such as the arms or chin, is typically less costly than more extensive work on the abdomen or back.

4. Anesthesia Type

The type and amount of anesthesia used during liposuction can influence the overall cost of the procedure. Local anesthesia, typically used for smaller areas, may be less costly than general anesthesia, which is required for more extensive procedures.

At our practice, the anesthesia used is part of the comprehensive care package, ensuring you receive the highest standard of treatment without compromising safety or comfort.

5. Financing Options

Understanding that financial considerations are part of your decision-making, we offer financing through reputable health care financing companies like CareCredit®, PatientFi®, and ALPHAEON® for qualified patients. This can help make the cost more manageable, allowing you to focus on the results, not just the expense.

6. The Price of Quality

It’s tempting to shop around for the lowest price, but cheaper isn’t always better when it comes to your body and well-being. The danger of making a decision based solely on price is that doing so can lead to unsatisfactory results or, worse, complications that could end up costing you more in the long run.

7. Regional Costs

The price range for liposuction can vary significantly in the New Orleans area. On average, patients may expect to invest anywhere from $1,500 to $7,000 for one liposuction procedure. This range is consistent with the national average cost of around $4,449. It’s important to note that these figures represent the surgeon’s fee and don’t include other associated costs such as anesthesia, facility fees, and postoperative care.

Your Investment in Yourself

When considering liposuction, it is vital to look beyond the cost and focus on the value of the results and the quality of care you will receive. The MODERN Plastic Surgery & Medspa is committed to providing exceptional results that justify the investment in your body and well-being. Your safety and results are what truly matters—the confidence that comes with receiving top-tier results and loving your body.
