The price of Liposuction
Liposuction is one of the most requested treatments by patients in the UK. This is not surprising due to the top end treatments on offer and the results which they produce. Liposuction doesn’t have to be a big procedure that knocks you out for days on end anymore. For the smaller pockets of fat there are many other options. Liposuction is best suited for patients who also adopt a healthy lifestyle and a good diet as by doing so your body will be able to provide you with the best results.
The financial cost of liposuction can vary depending on the clinic, the practitioner and the amount of fat removal you need. A consultation fee is usually required which enables the practitioner who will carry out your treatment to be present during your consultation. You will then be able to voice any questions or even concerns you have and they will be able to understand your requirements. Some companies do not charge for consultations but this may mean that you will not be able to talk to the person who will be carrying out your treatment. At PHI we take this seriously as it is important to feel happy and comfortable with your procedure. At PHI we wish to provide a safe, ethical treatment for all patients, meaning we value the consultation process and our price reflects this.
The cost of the treatments themselves can vary dramatically: for surgical liposuction the prices start from £3,000. This price may increase depending on the level of fat removal and the areas that need to be treated. For a surgical procedure you will need to use anesthesia for the treatment to take place. Therefore the downtime can be longer than those procedures that take a less invasive approach.
Liposuction can be completed on most areas of the body although areas such as the chin, arms and thighs can be harder to treat and therefore the cost can reflect this. Chin liposuction is performed under local anesthetic and IV sedation. Therefore the treatment should be relatively pain free but there may be some tenderness and swelling after completion.
If you were looking to have liposuction but you didn’t want the surgical invasion there are many other methods that can be administered. The prices for these can start from £150 and go up to £850 plus, depending on the area and technology used. These treatments use varying techniques to melt the fat externally and then allow the body to get rid of the unwanted produce naturally.
Although cost has to be considered when undertaking any procedure it should not be the deciding factor for choosing which clinic/surgeon to use. This decision is something that will be with you for the rest of your life and should be one which you’re comfortable with. Check carefully your practitioner and surroundings. PHI is a doctor led clinic which puts patients needs first and foremost.
