Top five questions about the hidden costs involved in liposuction cost.
Determining Your Liposuction Cost
Liposuction is a highly personalized treatment, and no two procedures are alike. Therefore, the cost of liposuction can vary greatly from patient to patient. Your current body proportions, number of areas being treated, and technology being used will be part of the overall equation.
Who you select as your surgeon is very important, and affects the cost of any plastic surgery procedure. Safe, successful liposuction requires the skill and experience of a board-certified plastic surgeon. This is vital for patients who seek optimal results, with minimal risk of complications. Dr. Oldham has been in practice since 1977, and has a reputation for excellence in the Washington D.C. area.
For patients who have been concerned about a specific area of the body for years, liposuction offers a way to achieve exciting new proportions.
Dr. Oldham includes the surgeon’s fee, the facility fee and anesthesiologist’s fee in the procedure cost. He uses only reputable, board-certified anesthesiologists to ensure your safety.
Post-surgery care is included in the cost of liposuction, including your compression garment, which will need to be worn for two weeks after your surgery. Your follow-up appointments are also included in the overall cost.
Not included in the overall fee is the time away from work that liposuction surgery and recovery can require. Most patients will need to take at least a few days off from work for the procedure. This could also involve care for children, since you will need time for recovery.
Is Liposuction Worth the Cost?
For many patients, liposuction is part of an overall self-improvement plan, and is well worth the investment. Body confidence can make a tremendous difference in your self-esteem, and can have a significant impact on your personal and professional life.
Particularly for men and women with less than 25 pounds of excess weight, liposuction quickly eliminates trouble spots that do not respond to diet and exercise. For patients who have been concerned about a specific area of the body for years, liposuction offers a way to achieve exciting new proportions.
Many patients enjoy the chance to wear clothes they previously avoided, such as bathing suits and fitted garments. For patients who are committed to maintaining their optimal weight, the benefits of liposuction treatment can be enjoyed for many years.
So that liposuction and other cosmetic procedures are affordable, Dr. Oldham offers various financing options. CareCredit® and MedicalFinancing™ programs offer loans with flexible payment plans, often including no interest and low interest financing for patients.
