Liposuction could be defined as a cosmetic surgery which helps in removing human body fat to change its shape. Liposuction is also called as lipo and it widely used to get the body in shape. The Liposuction treatment keeps on varying between $2000 to $3,500 per treatment area. However this cost excludes the fee of surgical centres, anaesthesia etc. However, these costs change depending on the treatment area. The larger the area, such as the abdomen or the back the more will be the cost as compared to smaller areas. The cost also goes up for a small complicated area like the chin or cheeks. The cosmetologist uses different techniques for liposuction. One such technique is the tumescent technique where a large volume of a dilute solution of local anesthesia (lidocaine and epinephrine) is infiltrated (injected) into the fat under the skin. This process helps in making the targeted area to become tumescent. In other words, we can say that this area becomes swollen and firm. Similarly, there is yet another technique called the Laser and ultrasound assisted liposuction. This technique is used in the body areas which are not responsive to diet and exercise such as saddlebags or a paunchy stomach. The laser-assisted liposuction is used to cut fat in abdomen, ankles, arms, buttocks, cheeks, chin, knees, hips etc. It is important to undergo this treatment with a skilled cosmetologist. Patients should also be aware that these treatments are not covered by insurance.
