Costs for this surgical  procedure are usually based on the time that the surgeon will take to perform the procedure and these differ according to the size of the patient and the amounts of areas to be treated.


As rule of thumb, areas are usually $2000 each, there is GST to be added, hospital and anaesthetic costs and the costs of compression garments to be worn afterwards.


Costing for Liposuction may also be done by time estimates. A procedure taking 2 hours would usually cost $8800, 3 hours $11000, 4hours $14000.


Although some doctors will offer this as an in rooms procedure, qualified surgeons will prefer to operate in a register hospital futility with a specialist anaesthetist present. This ensures a safe environment for the patient as liposuction is, after all, surgery and the proper safeguards need to be in place.
