What is Liposuction?
Liposuction involves the freezing of fat cells in specifically targeted areas of the body, permanently destroying them. The body then processes the dead cells in the same natural manner it processes all dead tissue cells, eventually eliminating them from the body forever.
It’s important to recognize that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. The amount of fat that can be removed in limited. While you may lose a small amount of weight, that is not the primary purpose of lipo treatments.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost in North Alabama and Huntsville area?
Generally speaking, liposuction treatments at Nease Cosmetic Surgery range from $1,500 to $3,000 per area treated. Costs can vary from person to person, depending on the number of areas treated along with several other contributing variables. During your initial consultation, the doctor will create your lipo treatment plan and will be able to give you an accurate cost for your specific case.
Insurance companies seldom cover the cost of cosmetic surgeries and procedures. You’ll want to contact your insurance provider to find out what procedures they’ll accept for coverage. Dr. Nease strives to keep patient procedures as affordable as possible.
