The most frequent question our office is asked time after time is how much does liposuction cost in Las Vegas. Several factors affect the cost, which will go into more detail later in this article, but the most intangible factor is value. Of course, you need to know how much your procedure will cost for planning, budgeting, and to compare if you have a consultation with more than one surgeon.
When looking for a surgeon you choose to entrust your body with, health-wise and to produce the desired results, the wise formula is value + price versus price + value. There is no such thing as world-class discount cosmetic surgery. So as you take this very important journey to get the best possible result for your investment, be careful not to cut corners. It’s better to choose a surgeon who you have confidence in their experience and ability and who might be more than you planned on spending. A personalized approach is worth extra so don’t choose a surgeon who offers a paint-by-number solutions or area-by-area pricing. After all, the most expensive cosmetic surgery is the one that has to be done again.
A Popular Procedure
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed today. While it’s often associated with people trying to lose weight, there are many reasons someone might want to undergo this procedure. Liposuction removes excess fat cells from specific areas of the body. Patients sometimes choose to undergo liposuction because they feel self-conscious about the appearance of certain parts of their bodies. Other times, patients seek out liposuction to improve overall health and wellness.
The good news is that liposuction does not involve cutting into the skin. Instead, surgeons insert small tubes called cannulas into the fatty tissue where the fat cells reside. These cannulas work much like suction cups to draw out unwanted fat. After fat removal, the surgical site heals quickly, and scarring is minimal.
So, What Does Liposuction Cost in Las Vegas?
The answer depends on so many factors. The good news is that Las Vegas liposuction cost is less than Southern California and other meccas of cosmetic surgery. After care expenses tend to be lower so if you travel to see us you can save there as well.

Cost Is A Little Like Buying A Car
Do you want a new car or a used car? Low miles or high miles? Compact or Luxury? The price of a car can range upwards of $40,000 or much more.
If you’re considering liposuction, talk candidly to your plastic surgeon about the pros and cons of the procedure. Listen to their approach and if they listen to your goals. They can help you weigh the risks and rewards of having this procedure done but also instill the confidence you need to trust them to do your surgery.
Added Costs May Include:
The final cosmetic surgery cost also depends on the number of surgeries performed. Once you have your surgical plan, in addition to the actual surgery itself, there are additional fees. These include anesthesia, operating room charges, lab fees, medication fees, aftercare, etc.
The Devastating Cost of Cheap Lipo
People have recently been traveling abroad for cheaper plastic surgery procedures. In fact, according to The Aesthetic Society there are almost 300,00 liposuction operations performed in the US every year. Worldwide, that number has grown as surgeons in other countries seek to attract patients with promises of big discounts. While some patients have great success stories, others say it wasn’t worth the cost and time to travel. Not only could they have gotten as good or better results closer to home, when something goes wrong, your doctor is thousands of miles away. But a fair number of patients have surgeries that are botched and have to be done again.
Many people go abroad because they believe that prices are lower. But this isn’t always the case. Surgeons in other countries licensing may not be as rigorous and they may use dated technology to perform the procedure. And while the price tag might seem low, the value is low also.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery says. “People pay anywhere from $5,000 – $20,000. “But the average patient ends up spending around $10,000-$14,000.”
The Most Expensive Liposuction Of All
A botched surgery that requires a second surgery to correct defects like scaring, misshapen or disproportionate results, sagging skin or “divets” from harsh liposuction are the costliest of any cosmetic surgery. So choose carefully and consider the factors beyond the Surgeon’s Fee.
