The Cost Of Liposuction In Toronto

Many people want a better, fitter, more sculpted body, but how much are they willing to pay for it? Like most other medical procedures, there isn’t a blanket price tag for liposuction. There are many different factors that can affect the cost of liposuction.

Depending on the surgeon, procedure, facility, and other considerations, liposuction in Toronto can cost up to $8,000 per area, but Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute’s prices range anywhere from $500 to $6,500 per area with packages available for multiple areas. That’s a huge variance, so we’re going to break down the variables that impact cost the most.

Before You Begin

Always get the complete upfront quote before you agree to the procedure. A full costing usually includes the surgeon’s fee, anesthesiologist’s fee, operating facility fee, and the cost of the compression garments you’ll use during recovery.

Factors That Affect Liposuction Costs

When shopping around for your liposuction procedure, you’ll come across a wide range of prices. To explain why there’s such a big difference between prices for what seems like the same procedure, we’ve broken down the major factors that contribute to liposuction costs.

The Surgeon

Some surgeons charge more than others, usually because they have more training and experience. At Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute, our surgeons, while having spectacular education, still offers competitive pricing for liposuction. The Liposuction service page provides a clear visual guide that describes the cost per bodily area under Dr Jugenburg.

Choosing the right surgeon is one the most important decisions you can make. Only trust board-certified cosmetic surgeons who specialize in the kind of liposuction you want to be done. This will protect you down the line from potential health risks and malpractice.

The Procedure

Liposuction is most commonly charged per area. Smaller zones, like the chin or armpit, are cheaper than large zones like your abdomen. This is because larger areas generally require more fat removal and a more expensive type of anesthesia. Local anesthesia is much cheaper than general anesthesia but is only recommended when operating on particular areas of the body.

If you have more than one problem area you’d like to fix, talk to your surgeon. Many doctors and clinics offer discounted rates or packages if you get multiple procedures. Dr. Jugenburg will discuss with you if you can get the procedures done in the same session. This is a more cost-effective option for those who want full-body sculpting.

The Equipment

Did you know that there is more than one way to perform a liposuction? Dr. Jugenburg has training in each method. Each kind of liposuction comes with its own pros and cons, so make sure to talk to Dr. Jugenburg about the liposuction process.

Tumescent liposuction is by far, the most common technique. There is also power-assisted liposuction, ultrasonic-assisted liposuction, and laser-assisted liposuction (which you might be familiar with as SmartLipo). SmartLipo is easier, more thorough, and less traumatic on body tissue than other methods, but it’s also one of the more expensive options.

The Facility

Location matters. A clinic in a busy urban area will likely be more expensive than one in a quieter rural town, but at the same time, big city centers often offer higher trained surgical staff and state of the art equipment, so many people need to choose what they are looking for.

Surgeons can operate out of either their own clinics or in a hospital. Clinic procedures are obviously cheaper, but may not always be the best choice for all patients. If you have particular medical conditions, Dr. Jugenburg may recommend that you have your operation in one of their affiliated hospitals instead.

The Patient

Even if you control for all of the other factors, one of the biggest variables is you, the patient. Depending on how close you are to your ideal weight, the amount of fat that needs to be removed will differ. If your surgeon needs to remove more fat, that will likely translate into a higher overall cost.

Other Liposuction-Related Costs

While your actual liposuction procedure will be the most prominent expense, you need to leave room in your budget for incidentals that people often look over. Factoring in these other costs will give you a clearer and more accurate picture of how much you’re actually going to spend.

Other expenses that will inflate your total liposuction cost include pain medication, transportation to and from your doctor’s appointments, and the cost of any extra help you’ll need to hire to help around the house during recovery. You also have to consider opportunity costs such as whatever losses in your income due to missed work.

Beware Of Cheap Liposuction Offers

We understand that you want to save wherever you can, but opting for cheap liposuction can be a very expensive mistake. People who skimp on their liposuction often regret it later due to unsatisfying results, unattractive appearances, or costly complications. You’ll end up having to pay a second surgeon to fix the work, making it more expensive than if you had gone with a reputable surgeon in the first place.
