If you have stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet or exercise, you’ve probably considered liposuction surgery. This cosmetic procedure removes persistent fat tissue, leaving behind a more contoured treatment area.
But how much does liposuction cost? What should you budget for your surgery?
The Base Costs: The Average Cost of Liposuction Surgery
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of liposuction surgery in the United States is $3,518. This figure is from 2018, the year when data was last available.
It’s important to note that this is only the base price of your liposuction surgery; there are multiple factors that can increase how much you may end up paying, which we’ll explore now.
Factors that Affect Your Total Liposuction Cost
1. Your plastic surgeon’s background.
The more experienced and esteemed your plastic surgeon, the more likely it is that you’ll pay more for your liposuction surgery. Trust us, that’s a good thing – your liposuction results are dependent on your plastic surgeon’s experience.

2. Your location.
Your zip code has a lot to do with how much you’ll end up paying for your liposuction surgery. If you’re based in an affluent area – like San Francisco or West Palm Beach – you’ll probably end up paying more than if you’re based in a more modest location.
3. Extra surgical fees.
There are plenty of extra – and necessary – fees that may increase your liposuction surgery price. These extra fees include:
- General anesthesia
- Surgical center fees
- Prescription medications
- And more
If you want to get a more specific idea of how much you may end up paying for your liposuction procedure, your best bet is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
