Do you have areas on your body that you wish were more sculpted? Do you have a few deposits of fat that affect the overall contour of your body? Liposuction could be a solution. Perhaps you have been thinking about it but wonder if the costs are within reach. Here is some information on liposuction cost in Canada as well as the factors that could have an impact on what you might pay.
What Is Liposuction?
To understand the cost of liposuction surgery, it helps to understand what the procedure is. Liposuction removes localized fat cells from deep underneath the skin through a cannula (small tube) that is attached to a vacuum. The surgeon makes a small incision in the skin then inserts the cannula and moves it around to break up the fat cells so they can be suctioned away.
Liposuction can be effective for people who have 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.
How Much Will it Cost?
Several factors influence liposuction costs in Canada, but this chart gives you a general guide:
|Area of the Body||Cost|
|Arms||$1,500 – $5,000|
|Back||$1,500 – $4,000|
|Breasts||$3,000 – $7,500|
|Buttocks||$1,500 – $4,000|
|Chin & Neck||$2,000 – $4,500|
|Hips||$1,600 – $5,000|
|Thighs (Inner or Outer)||$1,600 – $5,000|
The range of prices accounts for the a person’s size—a larger body will cost more to work on—as well as the number of areas to be worked on at one time. The facility where the procedure is performed will also influence the price, depending on the costs associated with anaesthesiologist, the surgeon’s attendants, and the operating room itself.
It’s important to remember that liposuction costs are also determined by the experience and expertise of the licensed plastic surgeon you are considering. When you consult with a plastic surgeon, you receive the benefits of all his or her training and education. That knowledge can help you achieve the body sculpting results you desire.
While comparing liposuction costs is essential before you elect to have treatment, it is equally important to consider the surgeon’s reputation, how long the clinic has been in operation, and which liposuction techniques are used. The lowest cost might not be best for you in the long run.
