Determining Your Liposuction Costs
Even with proper diet and exercise, small areas of fat can still remain for many patients. Liposuction can remove these stubborn pockets of fat to create more attractive contours, but many patients are concerned about the cost of treatment. Since liposuction is not a "one-size-fits-all" procedure, the final price will depend on several factors. To determine your liposuction costs, Little Rock, AR, surgeon Dr. Suzanne Yee will listen to your cosmetic goals and evaluate your unique characteristics. Based on your circumstances and budget, she will design a customized liposuction procedure to best achieve the results you desire. To learn more about the cost of liposuction, contact our practice and schedule a consultation with Dr. Yee.

Factors Affecting Liposuction Costs
There are several aspects that can influence the cost of liposuction. The most common cost factors include:
The Type of Liposuction Performed
Dr. Yee can perform multiple types of liposuction, including:
- VASER® LipoSelection: If you opt for this technique, Dr. Yee will use ultrasound energy to emulsify fat so that it can be easily suctioned out.
- SmartLipo: Dr. Yee can use a precise, powerful laser to break up fat deposits through the top layers of the patient's skin. This technique also allows Dr. Yee to simultaneously smooth and firm tissue while shortening recovery times.
- VASER® Hi Def™: This state-of-the-art type of liposuction uses ultrasound energy to remove deep fat around muscle groups and create a fitter, more attractive look. Dr. Yee is one of the few surgeons in the country who has the special training to perform this advanced liposuction technique.
The Areas Being Treated
Liposuction can be used to remove fat from many areas of the body, and the final costs will be affected by the size and number of areas being treated.
You may need to purchase medications, compression garments, gauzes, or other post-operative materials to improve your healing.
Combining Liposuction with Other Procedures
Liposuction is very versatile, so Dr. Yee often recommends using it in conjunction with other procedures to achieve more dramatic results. For example, many of our patients undergo lipoabdominoplasty, which involves the use of liposuction as part of a tummy tuck. When liposuction is combined with other surgeries, the overall expenses will be higher.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Yee can plan your procedure and outline your specific liposuction costs.
