procedures and cost?

I am 62, weigh 186 disgusting and I have a fat roll that sags over and I hate the sight of me. I can't lose weight and am curious about liposuction, and then a tummy tuck after to fix that sagging stomach fat roll. How much money, payment plan option? Does liposuction of stomach come with tummy tuck.?Need liposuction of hips, buttocks and maybe thighs too. Dont want to be disporportioned.

Procedure: Liposuction
Location: Pocahontas, IA

Many times I stage the two procedures. You would have to be seen in person to determine exactly what you need and then a fee can be quoted. My office provides information on companies you can finance your surgery through. Best of luck.

We would need to evaluate you to determine how best we can help you. We offer virtual consults for our patients who travel a distance. Once we have worked out a plan, fees can be quoted. Finance plans are available.

I'm so sorry to hear about your difficulty losing weight. Liposuction and tummy tuck can be great options in the right patient. The cost generally depends on the overall time involved. And many surgeons offer financing options. I would recommend seeing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area. He or she can develop a customized treatment plan to fit your goals.

Best of luck to you.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. This combination of procedures can be performed with the liposuction typically done first and a tummy tuck in a second stage. That said your candidacy for surgery needs to be assessed first so seek out consultations with a number of reputable plastic surgeons in your area. Best wishes!

Wanting major contouring will end up costing easily over $10K and in some areas, over $20K. You really need to invest in a consultation with local board certified plastic surgeon (as opposed to 'cosmetic' surgeons) and find out the nitty gritty of what you need done and what the costs will be. Tummy tucks and liposuction can safely be combined in what is called lipoabdominoplasty so there is no reason to have to do them separately. There are many ways to finance this from a second mortgage, to businesses such as Care Credit, to borrowing from family... but no surgeon finances this for you as there is simply too much risk for non-payment. Can't take back the merchandise if payment is not made. Only through a consultation can you find out whether you are healthy enough for this, whether you are a good candidate, and to make sure your expectations are realistic.

It sounds like you are an excellent candidate for a tummy tuck with liposuction of different areas. This could be done as an outpatient but you would need to stay in the vicinity of one of my offices for a minimum of 5-7 days and your recovery would normally be about 2-3 weeks.
