Lipoplasty, or liposuction, is a cosmetic body-sculpting procedure that removes unwanted fat from troublesome areas that seem to resist diet and exercise. Liposuction can restore self confidence in patients who are unhappy with their shape by targeting specific problem areas and improving body contour and tone. Because no two liposuction patients are the same, the costs of liposuction vary substantially from case to case.  To learn more about the procedure and the cost of liposuction, please contact the  Manhattan office of Dr. Craig Foster today.

An Investment in Your Self Confidence

Liposuction is best suited for patients who are in good health and of normal body weight. These patients may have stubborn areas that accumulate fat despite their efforts to exercise and maintain a healthy diet. They may feel these areas compromise their appearance, and turn to liposuction to achieve more defined body contours and a leaner, firmer shape. After liposuction, many patients report not only looking better, but feeling much more self-assured and confident. They enjoy the way they look in clothes and a bathing suit, and lose feelings of self-consciousness undressing in front of an intimate partner. Dr. Foster's cosmetic surgery expertise and eye for artistry and detail has benefited many patients, for whom he creates beautiful results with this customized body-shaping treatment.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Your Procedure

Liposuction prices fluctuate considerably depending on which area of the body is being targeted, and the work necessary to meet the patient's goals. For example, lipoplasty of the neck, a relatively small area of the body, will cost less than liposuction performed on a patient's abdomen, buttocks or thighs. Other factors include the patient's percentage of body fat, and the amount of fat that he or she wishes to have removed.

Although liposuction is a versatile procedure that is suitable for a number of applications, it can necessitate complementary procedures. The removal of fat deposits can sometimes leave loose skin, and this skin may need to be removed in order to achieve satisfying results. Liposuction is often used in combination with other plastic surgeries, such as a tummy tuck. In this case, the cost of liposuction will be a part of the overall cosmetic surgery expense.
