How Much Does Liposuction Cost and Is It Safe for Its Price?

Liposuction has developed dramatically in the last few years. Many varieties of liposuction are available in the market to help clients meet their various needs.

Traditional liposuction involves a metal tube connected to a vacuum machine that removes excess fat is the oldest form of liposuction. At Chelsea Cosmetics, we only use traditional liposuction in small areas like the chin with a small and less traumatic cannula.

What Is the Price of Liposuction?

The cost for something like the double chin liposuction procedure mentioned above is $2990. It is a minor procedure with a high safety record, especially if it is performed by a surgeon with plenty of experience.

The second generation of liposuction is Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL), which is a much more advanced process when compared to traditional liposuction. It uses a small cannula that vibrates to loosen the fat and can remove three times the amount when compared to traditional liposuction.

This process also causes less trauma to the tissues and carries fewer complications, with only a small amount of downtime. The PAL liposuction price per cosmetic area is $2990.

The third generation of liposuction is Vaser, which is a US-operated machine. The US energy is transmitted to the tip of the cannula creating waves that destroy the fat cells and tightens the loose skin. We then remove the dissolved fat with PAL. It has a significant advantage in creating high definition liposuction and a good degree of skin tightening. The Vaser liposuction price per cosmetic area is $3200.

A consultation with our skilled team will determine a tailored liposuction plan for your needs along with an exact cost.

Why Is Liposuction Considered to Be Safe?

Liposuction is a very popular cosmetic procedure with a proven safety record when performed by a well-trained and experienced physician. Chelsea Cosmetics surgeons are competent in evaluation and judgement as well as the surgical technique.

Liposuction is an invasive procedure, and while it has a significant impact on the body with a range of potential risks, qualified surgeons go through lengthy training and examination to obtain certification and avoid potential complications.

For this reason, liposuction is safe and best suited for candidates who are of a healthy weight, with specific areas that bother them. While some liposuction may require general anaesthesia (depending on the amount of fat being removed), tumescent anaesthesia is often used, meaning the patient is awake during the entire procedure. You will also be able to stand up immediately after the procedure, which helps to identify any irregularities and address them on the spot. This is sometimes known as the “sculpturing” aspect.
