How Much Does it Cost to Get Liposuction on Your Stomach

Although liposuction has become one of the most popular ways in which to remove stubborn fat from the body, it is also one of the most misunderstood procedures as well. If you are asking how much liposuction on the stomach costs, you must be seriously considering this procedure but there are some things you should know first. Before even looking at cost, let’s talk about what liposuction can do, what it cannot do, and what you should never expect from it.

What You Should Not Expect From Liposuction on Your Stomach

Some people have the misconception that liposuction falls just short of a miraculous procedure that will instantly transform the stomach from rolls of fat to a slim, well-toned waistline. Yes, it’s true that liposuction on the stomach can remove those stubborn pockets of fat that no amount of dieting can touch but that is not what so many people believe will result from the procedure. In other words, don’t expect liposuction on the stomach to transform a morbidly obese body into the toned body of an athlete. That is totally unrealistic.

What Liposuction on the Stomach Is Meant to Do

As mentioned, liposuction is meant to take those stubborn pockets of fat that no amount of dieting has touched. Some people diet to the point of their ideal body weight but somehow their stomach failed to keep up with the weight loss. There is still that bit of pudginess that keeps you from looking fit and trim and this is where liposuction steps in. It is a procedure meant to remove those stubborn pockets of fat that just refused to budge with all the dieting and exercising in the world. This is what you can expect from the procedure.

A Ballpark Range of Cost on the Abdomen

While the cost of liposuction varies from region to region and from country to country, in the United States you will find prices listed from just under $4,000 on the very low end and about $8,000 on the higher end. If you are only seeking liposuction on the lower stomach/abdomen, then you can expect to pay anywhere from about $2,500 to approximately $7,500. Although you might be thinking that the costs are based on the quality of care you will receive, it is also in relation to how much tissue needs to be removed along with the actual size of the treatment area.

The cost will also be based on the level of experience and competence of the surgeon performing the procedure. As you can see, there is a wide range of prices so the only real way to get a close estimate of cost is to schedule a visit with the surgeon you are thinking of using. Sometimes a virtual appointment via Telemed can be scheduled for a very close estimate but the best estimate will be if the surgeon can actually see and assess the areas in need of liposuction.

What to Expect After a Liposuction Procedure

For most people, there is a bit of tenderness for a day or two after the procedure, but it can be of shorter or longer duration based on the patient and the amount of tissue being extracted. Also, some patients recover faster or slower than the ‘norm’ while other patients breeze through it feeling no discomfort at all. These patients are obviously in the minority, but it does happen! If you are concerned about the recovery rate after liposuction, the person to ask would be your surgeon. They will have the best estimate based on experience and that is what you really should trust after all.

A Final Word of Caution

You have probably heard the old cliché ad infinitum, but it never holds truer than with liposuction. Yes, you do get what you pay for. There are some clinics that offer unbelievably low prices that you will be tempted to pay. After all, who doesn’t like a good deal? When it comes to your health or your body, this is one price you can’t afford to scrimp on. Clinics that post very low prices are also probably going to offer unsafe practices and procedures. If you still find yourself tempted to book their services, it would be in your best interest to do a bit of research first. See what former patients have said about results they received and look into any lawsuits they may have had brought against them. Dissatisfied as well as satisfied patients have no reason to lie. They were either happy or not.

Finally, remember that liposuction isn’t a miraculous cure-all from body fat. It is meant as a procedure to reduce stubborn pockets of fat, not to replace a weight loss diet and exercise. Those are up to you but liposuction can be the proverbial icing on the cake.
