This article will introduce you to some basic knowledge of liposuction surgery, it describes the factors that affect the price of liposuction, and provides you with a few tips on how to find cheap lipo with reliable quality.

An overview of liposuction

As medical technology advances, more and more people are now interested in obtaining ideal figures through plastic surgery. Recently, a new study reveals that liposuction has become one of the fastest-growing plastic surgery in the world. Liposuction is a surgical treatment that, made by a professional plastic surgeon, uses vacuum suction to remove excess fat in a specific area of the body, to reduce the number of fat cells in a reliable and precise way. It helps to reshape your body in a very short period of time. Liposuction, or lipo for short, has become one of the largest cosmetic surgeries implemented around the world.

Based on different technologies, the mechanism of liposuction can be divided into several types, for example, Suction-assisted liposuction (SAL), Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL), Power-assisted liposuction (PAL), Water-assisted liposuction (WAL) and so on. For those who just want to improve the shape of one body part, such as the abdomen and buttocks, lipos can be implemented in the clinic under local anesthesia, the whole process takes only several hours with quick after surgery recovery. However, for those who need to improve the appearances of several body parts, general anesthesia and hospitalization are needed and it takes approximately 10 days.

Although liposuction is still a newly emerged surgery with a history not too long, most people who did lipos showed satisfactory outcomes. Some plastic surgeons have explained why liposuction is developing in recent years at such an amazing speed, they say that in the process of the surgery, patients do not feel any pain and the whole process does not take very long, and the results are quite amazing, as people will undergo rapid body shape changes. The above factors all contribute to the attractiveness of liposuction to modern people who are looking for quick and efficient way to lose weight. Besides, people can return to their normal life shortly after liposuction. In recent years the number of male having liposuction is growing rapidly too, many men, in pursuit of masculine, decide to remove excess fat in their chest to change their gynecomastia appearances. Plastic surgery industry experts believe that the prevalence of plastic surgery in recent years reflects a psychological trend that people are becoming increasingly stringent on their own images.

Price of liposuction

Before searching for affordable liposuction opportunities, you need to know what the determinants of lipo prices are. The price of liposuction is not very high among all plastic surgeries. For example, compared with abdominoplasty, or commonly known as tummy tuck, liposuction is about half the price of a tummy tuck.

Although there is no exact formula to calculate the price of a lipo, it depends much on different cases. Liposuction prices are decided by many factors: First, the price of liposuction is decided by the body part and the amount of body fat, the more body fat that needs to be suctioned, the more expensive the surgery will be. Secondly, the price of liposuction is closely related to liposuction methods and medical equipments used, as introduced in the above paragraph, liposuction can be divided into SAL, UAL, PAL, and so on, different types of liposuction methods have great differences in price. Finally, price differences exist among different regions and medical institutions. 

Tips on finding affordable liposuction

Once you decided to do liposuction surgery, you need to find the relevant information to determine which medical institution to choose from. There is a certain positive correlation between liposuction price and its effect, that is, liposuctions from medical institutions with more advanced equipments and well-known experts have higher success rates as well as higher prices. However, this rule is not without exception, you can find a balance between quality and the price of a lipo surgery, and to achieve maximum results with the least money. Where can you find information of affordable and reliable liposuction? Here are two tips:

The first and most reliable source is asking friends and acquaintances for the information. For example, when you decide to do abdominal liposuction, you should enquiry about 4 to 5 friends who have recently done the same type of surgery, asking them about the process and taking notes of price, doctors names and their overall assessments of the surgery. Through this method you can easily find liposuction at an affordable price. This method is often overlooked by most people, who just rush to do lipos without doing any prior research.

You can also succeed in finding a cheap lipo opportunity by looking through different ads. You can look for such an ad in the local newspapers and magazines or even the Internet. Are ads of liposuction on the Internet reliable? You need to be very cautious, the best way is to view the website to find out some basic information such as website’s owner (part of the information can be found through its domain name) to ensure that it provides relevant and reliable sources of information, after that, you can start comparing prices and making up your own mind which medical institution to go. When comparing prices, make sure whether there are other hidden costs.
