That depends on how large the area is and if it can be done with just a local anesthetic or requires sedation. The size will also determine if it can be done with syringe liposuction or requires machine assisted liposuction which increases the cost. In our area of the northeast, with local anesthesia and the syringe technique the average is $1,500. Check this ASPS site for a certified plastic surgeon in your area.

Thank you very much for your question. Without examining you and seeing pictures it is impossible to give a price range. You may be a candidate for liposuction or you may need a surgical excision of the excess skin and fat.

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine which procedures are best to achieve your goals.

Best wishes!

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. Unfortunately this will depend on an in-person examination to ensure that the appropriate treatment is liposuction (for excess fat) versus surgical excision of say a lipoma. See an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to discuss.

Thanks for the question … it can depend on the size of the area, if it can be done under local anesthesia, if it is a mass that needs to be excised or can be liposuctioned. Can range from $1500 to $4-5k. I recommend that you visit with a plastic surgeon to have an examination and a detailed quote.

Hello dear! Remember that the cost of a plastic surgery it's different on every country, we recommend you to find a board certificated plastic surgeon to have an evaluation
