So, it’s much better to remain prepared for the sequels. Let’s have an in-depth exploration of the factors.

Factors impacting the cost of Liposuction

  • Amount of fat cells to be removed

Above all, make up your mind as to how much fat you want to be removed, consult a highly-experienced surgeon to know whether your body is ideal to endure this cosmetic surgery. Thereafter your surgeon can recommend you the right amount of fat to be removed. The cost depends on the amount of fat removal and multiple areas desired by the prospective patient.

  • Areas that must be contoured

As we discussed earlier, liposuction can be done to remove fat from the most common areas such as Abdomen, thighs, hips, chin, etc. Now, depending on the area liposuction is performed. The areas under the chin require special care, and hence the expenses rise as a result.

  • Type of Liposuction to be performed

When it comes to Liposuction types, several types of technologies are available. With the help of your surgeon, you can decide which kind of Liposuction must be done.

The different types of Liposuction are:

  • Suction Assisted Liposuction (Manual) (SAL)
  • Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL)
  • Laser-assisted Liposuction (LAL)
  • Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction (UAL)
  • Medication expenses

The prices of medications vary from surgeon to hospital. Depending on the know-how and hospital, the fees can differ. Some hospitals do not include fees for anesthesia in the overall package, so that may get added too.

  • Post-surgical costs

You might be told to wear compression garments, take painkillers to reduce the pain of surgery, or it could be any other medicine. This too  can add up to your costs marginally. 

The other possible factors can be:

  • Hospital screenings (tests)
  • Doctor visits
  • Cost of medicines
  • Post-surgical visits

Now that you are aware of the factors- let’s dive in to understand the costs associated with types of Liposuction. Having enough knowledge gives you exposure to make an informed decision on which plan to consider and which surgeon to approach.

Types of Liposuction methods and their costs

Also Read: Types and methods of Liposuction

  • Traditional Liposuction method

Traditional Liposuction is merely the way to remove unwanted and excess fat cells from the body. The patient is given general anesthesia and further operated on by inserting cannulas via incisions. It eventually helps to remove excess fat from the body. This approach may seem common but is replaced by advanced technologies nowadays. This approach is more affordable, and people prefer this most of the time. Traditional liposuction surgery can cost you between Rs. 50,000 to 1,50,000 (depending upon various areas of the body), the primary reason for drawing medical tourists from across the globe.

  • Tumescent Liposuction method

The area of the skin which is to be removed is pumped with several liters of saline solution with a local anesthetic known as lidocaine and a vessel –constrictor known as epinephrine. Small suction tubes suck the fat. It is the most popular form of liposuction. As compared to the traditional method, this approach has lesser complications, bleedings, guarantees lesser healing time, making it more suitable for a candidate. Despite the fact that it has so many advantages, it is still inexpensive in many regions. Tumescent liposuction can cost you Rs. 1,00,000 and above on a standard.

  • Laser liposuction method

Also known as Laser guided lipo, this method makes use of power and technology associated with medical laser beams to liquefy fat. This method offers minimal invasive as compared to other open surgical choices. It combines adipocyte disruption with the laser beam and suctions out the dissolved fat with the help of different cannulae from the treated area. The neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet(Nd: YAG) 2064 mm has been introduced as the first laser for lipolysis. The laser method has acquired more popularity, as it causes lesser pain and surgical exhaustion. The cost of laser lipolysis begins at Rs. 75000 (per area)

  • Power-assisted liposuction method

The Power Assisted Liposuction method uses a special, motorized cannula with a mechanized system that moves back and forth at a very rapid speed over a distance of 3 to 5 millimeters. It removes 40% more fat per minute than manual liposuction and hence, this method takes less time to perform and gets the same results as Manual Liposuction. Generally used by Plastic Surgeons as they get older to cause less fatigue to themselves and their joints. Power-assisted liposuction is more preferred by individuals because it is not only affordable but has comparatively lesser risks than other procedures. The average cost lies between Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 1,50,000 (per area)

  • Ultrasonic liposuction method (VASER)

Ultrasonic liposuction can also be known as Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL). In the ultrasonic liposuction method, sound waves are used to loosen up the fat gently. This fat starts melting by the ultrasound energy and is removed by a thin tube called a cannula. The areas having larger volumes and denser fats are likely to use this technique. Contrary to other methods, this method is easier to implement and more efficient.

This is the most advanced form of Liposuction and causes a fair amount of Skin tightening too at the same time apart from being more fat selective and much more safer!

We at Luxor hospital are the owners of VASER as an exclusive and only centre in the whole of Baroda!

The liposuction costs in countries such as India, Singapore, Malaysia are way more affordable than the European countries. The average estimated cost of performing an ultrasonic surgery is somewhere between Rs 1,00,000 to 1,50,000. (per area)

Let’s consider the costs for the following treatment areas:

Neck: Starts at Rs. 50,000 to 75,000

Abdomen: Starts at Rs. 1,00,000 to 2,00,000   

Thigh: Starts at Rs. 1,20,000 to 1,50,000         

Buttocks: Starts at Rs. 75,000 to 1,20,000       

Breast: Starts at Rs. 75,000 to 1,00,000

Arm: Starts at Rs. 50,000 to 75,000
