Liposuction or Fat Removal Surgery cost in India

Liposuction remains a popular procedure in India. It has ranked consistently on the top list of plastic surgeons across India. But despite that, there is no uniformity of pricing. Quotation can go from Rs.30,000 to Rs.300,000. But why there is so much variation. Let’s understand what factors go in arriving at the cost of body contouring surgery.

  1. The extent of stubborn fat

Depending on the extent of areas and fat to be taken out, the cost is considered. Cost is less if any additional area is being considered. For example, say the cost of getting liposuction for the abdomen is X and you want to get back also done then quotation for the extra region can be somewhere around X/2 or X/3.

  1. Local or general anaesthesia

A small amount of fat like in neck, chest, armpits can be done under local anaesthesia. The cost of liposuction done under local anaesthesia is less as there is less amount of consumables used, no need for a hospital stay, less post-op monitoring. But most of the time general anaesthesia is preferred by both plastic surgeons and patients as much better results can be delivered with full safety and without accompanying pain.

  1. Hospital Charges

Unknown to the patient is one very important factor that the quotation includes hospital charges. Covid pandemic has brought with itself additional measures like PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), HEPA filters for air circulation and many other strict sanitization protocols.

  1. Use of liposuction technology

Use of technologies like VASER Liposuction, Microaire, Laser, Bodytite have made liposuction safer and effective. Each technology has its own pros and cons.

Vaser is based on the concept of Ultrasound waves that liquefies the fat, Microaire while is based on power-assisted liposuction in which vibratory motion of cannula is used to break fat.

Bodytite is based on the concept of thermal coupling of radiofrequency. It basically tightens the skin along with liposuction. Laser though is less popular because of difficulty in breaking fat in some areas.

It is important that you discuss in detail with your certified plastic surgeon.

  1. Experience of Surgeon

It is perhaps the most important factor that decides the results of liposuction. A certified plastic surgeon will do a full body assessment, check the amount of fat, skin quality and tone and then make an informed decision. It is important to discuss pre and post-surgery details with your plastic surgeon.
