In recent years, more and more patients have opted for laser liposuction (also referred to as laser-assisted liposuction) over traditional liposuction. It can be performed in our office under local anesthesia with only minimal pain.
If you’re bothered by stubborn fat in your abdomen, flanks, hips, inner and outer thighs, knees, or upper arms, laser liposuction may restore your confidence without the high risk and lengthy downtime associated with traditional liposuction. Keep reading to learn about the cost of laser liposuction.
What Determines the Cost of Laser Liposuction?
The cost of laser liposuction varies from patient to patient. A number of factors such as the areas of the body that you’d like to treat and your particular aesthetic goals will determine the price of this treatment. We have found that laser liposuction typically costs anywhere from $2,500 to $4,500 per area.
The best way to find out about the cost of laser liposuction for you is to schedule a private consultation at our office. After evaluating your problem areas and learning more about your goals, we can design a customized treatment plan and provide you with a specific fee quotation.
Keep in mind that because laser liposuction is considered a cosmetic procedure rather than a medical necessity, your insurance policy won’t cover it. We’ll be happy to work with you to figure out a payment plan that aligns well with your budget and lifestyle.
Benefits of Laser Liposuction
There are countless benefits of laser liposuction. Instead of general anesthesia, this treatment requires only safe and gentle local anesthesia. Laser-assisted liposuction under local anesthesia has a far shorter recovery time than traditional liposuction, making it an ideal option if you lead a busy life and can’t afford to take too much time off of work and your other daily responsibilities. The greatest benefit, however, is that laser liposuction offers smoother results than traditional liposuction.
Good Candidates for Laser Liposuction
If you are in general good health and have had limited success trying to get rid of stubborn fat bulges through diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for laser liposuction. You should understand that this procedure is not a weight loss solution or a substitute for leading a healthy lifestyle.
After years of putting it off, I finally had Smart Lipo to remove excess fat and bulk in my lower and upper abdominal areas. When I went to the office I was nervous and wasn’t sure anything could be done to make me feel better about my body. Dr. Langdon was very clear about what I could expect during and after the procedure and I felt very comfortable in his care. The office staff were extremely comforting on the day of my procedure and are very friendly and professional. I am glad I decided to go through with the procedure.
Natural Breast Augmentation utilizes fat harvested via a liposuction procedure. It offers a new option for patients who want to increase their breast volume without artificial implants. Dr. Langdon removes fat from problem areas elsewhere on the body and, after preparing it, uses it as a graft to enhance the breasts. Since fat is a rich source of adult stem cells, these cells will help the fat develop a healthy blood supply. This type of breast augmentation makes an excellent choice for those seeking results that look and feel completely natural.
