How much does revision liposuction cost?
Revision liposuction costs are based on several factors, including the amount of work to be done and the degree of difficulty, the area(s) of body to undergo operation, operating room fees, the anesthesiologist’s fee, and compression garments used during recovery. Revision liposuction is performed the same way as a first-time liposuction procedure. However, revision liposuction is more challenging than performing surgery on an unaltered patient. Because fat has already been removed, the difficulty lies in sculpting the body without removing too much additional fat. The revision liposuction doctor has to make precise, small changes in order to improve the results created by the first surgery.
The doctor’s geographic location and his or her level of experience also play a role in determining costs.
When a prospective patient is looking for a doctor to perform a second liposuction surgery, he or she should find a revision liposuction specialist. The patient should consider the doctor’s level of expertise, experience, attention to detail, and references.
Remember that costs are reflective of a doctor’s experience. A more experienced surgeon can command a higher revision liposuction cost. In general, revision liposuction costs more than the original surgery due to the degree of difficulty. Liposuction surgery done correctly the first time will help you avoid the cost of revision in the future.
By comparing different doctors and their fees, patients will be able to make an educated decision about how price relates to the doctor’s skill and experience. Quality care should be the top priority, especially when having liposuction performed for the second time. Consider the doctor’s experience and expertise, references, and your confidence in the doctor before price when weighing your options.
Revision liposuction is not possible in all cases. A specialist can determine a person’s eligibility for surgery.
