Thinking about liposuction? This procedure, which involves the removal of fat from under than skin through a canula, can be effective for people with isolated areas of fat that are resistant to a healthy diet and exercise. Ideal candidates are close to their desired weight and have good skin tone and elasticity. As plasticsurgeryinfo.ca explains, liposuction is not intended to be used for weight loss, but is instead meant to remove pockets of fat that cannot be removed otherwise.

If you’re a good candidate for this treatment, you’ll want to know how much you’ll need to save up in order to proceed. Here’s some information on the cost of getting liposuction in Canada and the factors that affect what you might pay.

How much will it cost?

The cost of liposuction varies according to several factors, including the size of the area being treated, the facilities being used, and the experience of your plastic surgeon. Plasticsurgeryinfo.ca states that liposuction in Canada starts at $1,500, while Liposuction Cost goes into more detail, explaining that small areas like the arms or outer thighs start around $1,500-$600 and can cost up to about $5,000. The abdomen costs between $3,000 and $7,500 on average.

When you get liposuction done, you aren’t just paying for the techniques being performed; you’re also potentially getting the opinion of a licensed plastic surgeon on likely results, receiving anesthetic, making use of the operating room, being cared for by your surgeon’s attendants, having tests done, and more. As you can see, many factors go into the cost of a liposuction treatment. Comparing costs and determining which aspects of treatment are most important to you (such as your surgeon’s reputation, how long the clinic has been in operation, and which liposuction techniques a potential surgeon uses, for example) can help you decide where to get your work done.
