In this blog, we’ll cover the ins and outs of liposuction costs in Australia so you can be informed and consider whether liposuction is the right procedure for you.

The Costs of Liposuction in Australia (2024)

Below is a basic guide to how much liposuction costs in Australia. However, these costs are not the final say. To get an accurate cost estimate, it’s essential to speak with a professional liposuction doctor who will be able to tailor the quote to your specific needs.

Treatment Detail Price (AUD)
Vaser Liposuction 1 Area (base) Starting from $5,500
Vaser Liposuction Mega 1 Area (base) Starting from $6,600
Chin & Neck Liposuction Small/Medium/Large Starting from $5,000/$6,000/$6,600
Gynaecomastia (Male Breast Liposuction) Small Starting from $5,500

Why The Cost of Liposuction Varies

Undergoing a liposuction procedure isn’t as simple as picking a service with a flat rate off the shelf. The complexity of this cosmetic procedure means that its cost is tailored to the unique needs and specific circumstances of each person. There are several key components that contribute to the final cost, and understanding these can help you understand why quotes vary so much from one person to the next.

  • Doctor Fees: The expertise of the doctor you choose plays a significant role in determining the cost. This fee not only reflects the doctor’s skill and experience but also varies depending on the clinic’s location and the reputation of the facility.

  • Hospital Fees: When liposuction requires a hospital stay, the costs can increase significantly. These fees are generally calculated based on the duration of the procedure itself as well as the necessary recovery time spent within the hospital’s care.
  • Anaesthetic Fees: The comfort and safety provided by anaesthesia during your procedure come with their own set of costs. These fees cover everything from the sedative drugs to the professional charge of the anaesthetist managing your pain and consciousness levels during the operation.
  • Compression Garment Fees: Post-surgery recovery is an integral part of the process, and the compression garments provided by Levant Cosmetic Surgery are designed to support and quicken this phase. The cost of these garments is another factor to consider in your budget.

It’s important to note that any liposuction cost estimates are a general guide and shouldn’t be seen as exact quotes. The total cost of your liposuction will be influenced by a blend of these factors, among other considerations.

During your consultation, you’ll receive a comprehensive breakdown, offering a clearer picture of the investment required for your specific case. This personalised approach ensures that you’re fully informed and comfortable with the journey ahead.

Cost of Vaser Liposuction Vs Traditional Liposuction

Traditional liposuction and Vaser liposuction are both popular cosmetic procedures aimed at removing unwanted fat, but they differ significantly in their approach and outcomes. As such, the cost varies too.

  • Traditional liposuction involves the mechanical removal of fat by inserting a cannula through small incisions and manually breaking up fat cells to suction them out. This technique is effective for removing larger volumes of fat but can sometimes lead to more pronounced bruising and a longer recovery period due to the physical manipulation required. As such, traditional liposuction is generally less costly.
  • Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound technology to gently dissolve fat cells before they are removed. This method allows for greater precision and is particularly effective for contouring and sculpting specific areas of the body. The ultrasound energy specifically targets fat cells, leaving surrounding tissues relatively undisturbed, which can result in less bruising, swelling, and a quicker recovery compared to traditional liposuction. Vaser is often recommended for those looking for more detailed reshaping, as it can more effectively refine and highlight muscle definition.

Vaser Liposuction Cost FAQs

Why do liposuction costs vary between clinics?

The cost of liposuction can vary significantly between clinics due to several factors, including the doctor’s experience and reputation, the location of the clinic, and the level of personalised care and service provided. Higher costs often reflect a surgeon’s extensive experience and the use of more advanced technology.

Why are some liposuction doctors cheaper than others?

Some doctors may offer lower prices due to less experience, lower overhead costs, or the absence of accreditation. It’s important to consider not just the cost but also the quality and safety of the care you’re receiving. Always choose experienced doctors with a proven track record of success and patient satisfaction.

What is included in the cost of Vaser Liposuction?

The quoted cost for Vaser liposuction typically includes the doctor’s fee, anaesthetic fees, hospital or facility fees, and any post-operative garments or care. During your consultation, we’ll provide a detailed breakdown of all costs involved, so you have a clear understanding of your investment.

Does the cost reflect the quality of the surgery?

Generally, yes. Doctors who charge higher rates often do so because of their expertise, and the quality of the outcome they provide. It’s essential to research and choose a doctor not solely based on cost but on their ability to meet your specific needs and expectations safely and effectively.

Can I get a liposuction cost quote over the phone or online?

While we can provide general pricing information over the phone or online, a precise quote requires a personal consultation. This allows our doctors to assess your individual needs, discuss your goals, and recommend the best treatment plan for you.
