How to Shop For Laser Liposuction

Posted on 17 June 2010


One of the primary concerns for anyone considering laser liposuction surgery is the cost. The mistake some people might make is shopping for a surgeon based solely on looking for the lowest priced deal they could find. The problem is that you do not want to compromise the quality of a surgeon when shopping for a bargain. This is where it is advantageous to know the factors that influence prices and trying to get the best deal not simply the lowest price.

As with other methods of liposuction, the cost of laser liposuction depends primarily on the size of the procedure area, the surgeon, and where the clinic is physically located. There are many other factors but these are the major ones you want to focus on. As previous mentioned the cost of the surgeon is often a direct correlation to the demand of the surgeon. A skilled and experienced plastic surgeon with a history of excellent results will be in high demand and can charge relatively more than the typical surgeon in that market area.

It is important that the surgeon is no less than a board certified plastic surgeon by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. There are also self appointed boards that do not carry the same credibility as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons so this is the one to look for. Any lyposuction surgeon with the proper credentials will have undergone a lot of training and examinations and they will be proud of their accomplishments so do not feel shy about asking.

The area of the body you wish to have treated is one that cannot be changed without defeating the purpose of desiring the treatment. But in general a larger area will cost more than smaller areas. The most useful bit of knowledge is that the geographical location of the clinic also has a significant impact on the final cost of the procedure. By commuting or traveling from a cosmetic surgery market where rates are high to a more remote region can save a bundle of money without compromising the quality of service.
