What is important for you to understand is that "liposuction" is being performed by any body with an MD after their names, even without formal training in cosmetic surgery. It is more important to chose the plastic surgeon over the price. Correction of bad results of liposuction can be much more expensive and more difficult. Chose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon (American Board of Plastic Surgery).


As you might imagine, price ranges for abdominal liposuction depend on several factors.  First, it has to do cost-of-living where you are.  For instance, it'll probably be more expensive in NYC as compared to a rural part of the country.  If it's done in a hospital, the fees are usually higher than if it is in a private doctor's office.  Then, there are patient factors -- such as how much is to be removed.  (A little or a lot, and fees would vary proportionately.)  

Laser liposuction is performed typically with the patient awake in our private fully accredited operating facility, and so costs are usually lower.  Fees typically range from $3,000 to $6,000 for abdominal liposuction, depending on some of these factors.


The price for liposuction varies greatly depending on the type, anesthesia and the surgeon.  There is not fixed price but a range.  The best is to call a few plastic surgeons in you area and compare prices. Good luck.
