Financing the Costs of Liposuction
By Hadi Rassael on March 18, 2013
No matter how stringent a patient’s diet and exercise routine may be, it is not unusual for the body to hold on to small, concentrated pockets of fat. Perhaps that is why liposuction continues to be one of the most often performed procedures at Dr. Hadi Rassael’s Chevy Chase cosmetic surgery practice. There are not many people who couldn’t benefit from the contouring and toning that can be achieved through liposuction. However, many of our patients in Chevy Chase wonder if liposuction costs can fit their budget. The good news for these patients is that liposuction can be customized to focus on one or multiple areas of the body, depending on a patient’s needs and finances. Additionally, there are many financing options that can be considered to help patients fit the costs of liposuction into their budget.
Costs of Liposuction
There are many factors that affect the cost of liposuction. These factors include geographical location of the cosmetic surgery practice, cost of the cosmetic surgery facility, and areas of the body being treated. The best way to get an accurate estimate for the costs of cosmetic surgery is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rassael to discuss your personal goals. However, following are the average costs a patient can expect to pay for popular areas of liposuction:
- Abdomen (upper and lower): $3000 - $7500
- Arms: $1500 - $5000
- Buttocks: $1500 - $4500
- Thighs (inner): $2000 - $5000
- Thighs (outer): $2000 - $5000
- Hips: $1600 - $5000
Multiple areas of the body can also be treated at once. This usually lowers the cost for patients because fees such as the facility cost and anesthesiologist costs will not need to be added multiple times. Dr. Rassael also offers monthly specials at his practice to give his patients the opportunity to undergo procedures such as liposuction at affordable prices.
For our patients in Chevy Chase, liposuction is one of the less costly cosmetic procedures. Even with the reasonable costs of liposuction offered by Dr. Rassael, this can be a significant expense for our patients. Dr. Rassael understands that it is not always possible for patients to come up with the cash to pay for cosmetic surgery procedures. That is why our practice offers financing options for qualified patients. Our staff is happy to discuss the financing options available to our patients. In addition to our financing options, patients can consider the following options for covering the costs of liposuction:
- Personal loan: There are many companies that offer personal loans specifically to cover the costs of cosmetic surgery procedures. It is important to know the exact cost of the procedure so that the full amount can be obtained.
- Credit card: There are numerous credit cards available. Liposuction can be paid for with a current credit card or patients can consider opening a new account. Be sure to consider all of the fine print of credit cards, including interest rate and fees, to determine if this is a good financing choice.
Schedule a Consultation
If you have considered liposuction but assumed it was out of your price range, it is time to reconsider. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Rassael to discuss the benefits and costs of liposuction. Our staff can also discuss the financing options available through our practice.
