The cost of liposuction is often an important consideration when deciding to proceed with liposuction surgery. Most patients often consider liposuction cost, the quality of care they can expect, the surgeon’s skills and experience, and the clinic’s reputation when making their decision. Although liposuction prices are an important factor for many people, we believe you should not base your decision on whether to proceed with liposuction on the basis of cost alone. Many clinics both in the UK and overseas focus on offering liposuction procedures at a heavy discount to entice prospective patients. In many cases, these cheap liposuction prices are just too good to be true as there is often some aspect of care that is heavily compromised. Many clinics often cut corners in offering bargain prices, and patients could end up paying the price for receiving substandard care. Botched liposuction is a recognised outcome when clinics advertise artificially low prices. We believe you should carry out extensive research on your choice of liposuction surgeon and clinic and always feel free to ask as many questions as you like at your consultation. If you still have questions after your consultation, we will be more than happy to book you for a follow-up consultation to allow you to make an informed decision on surgery.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure designed to get rid of stubborn areas of fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. Unlike weight loss surgery, liposuction is a body sculpting procedure aimed at contouring targeted areas of the body. Liposuction should not be considered a treatment for weight loss and is not intended to remove significant amounts of fat. The procedure involves the removal of stubborn areas of fat using specialised cannulas to suck the fat out, assisted by powerful vacuum suction.
The most popular liposuction areas include:
- Stomach lipo for getting rid of belly fat
- Thigh lipo
- Knee lipo
- Back lipo
- Calf and ankle lipo
- Male breast reduction (gynecomastia)
- Female breast reduction
- Chin lipo (double chin lipo)
- Arm liposuction (bingo wings)

There are different techniques for performing liposuction. The most common methods include laser liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction and power-assisted liposuction. Traditional liposuction involves using small diameter cannulas connected to vacuum suction to safely remove stubborn areas of fat. Power-assisted liposuction makes use of state-of-the-art vibration technology to effectively break down fat before its removal from the body. Micro liposuction involves extremely small cannulas to remove fat in smaller areas of the body, such as the chin or knees. Small areas of liposuction can be safely carried out with local anaesthetic alone. Other types of liposuction, including 360 liposuction will require a general anaesthetic for your comfort during the procedure.

Can I get liposuction on the NHS?
Liposuction is designed to improve the contours of the body and is performed for cosmetic reasons. It is therefore not available on the NHS. In selected cases, liposuction may be carried out for medical reasons. Patients may suffer from lymphedema, which is a condition that results in a significant swelling of the legs. Lipoedema may also qualify for NHS treatment, which involves excessive fat accumulation in the thighs, buttocks and legs.
What factors affect liposuction cost?
The cost of a Liposuction will be determined by several factors. The most important consideration will be the results you are looking to achieve. Your Surgeon will select an appropriate liposuction technique to help you achieve optimum results. Certain types of liposuction may involve a higher total cost. An example is ultrasound-assisted liposuction, also known as Vaser liposuction. The number of areas of liposuction, as well as their size, will also influence the price of your liposuction procedure. Patients with a higher body mass index and looking to remove significant quantities of fat can expect to pay more for their procedure than leaner patients with a lower body mass index.
Why do different clinics charge different prices for liposuction?
When you initially carry out your research, you may notice that prices can differ significantly for liposuction, and there is no one set cost. The overall cost of a liposuction procedure is dependent on several factors, including:
- The skills and experience of the Surgeon
- The reputation and location of the clinic
- The standard of preoperative and post-operative care
- How many areas of liposuction are being treated
- The type of liposuction technique used to remove fat
At Centre for Surgery in London, our treatment philosophy is focused on putting patient safety first. The expertise of our surgeons means the risk of complications after liposuction is significantly minimised. We are located in the heart of central London, and our prices for liposuction reflect the quality and standard of care we are committed to providing each and every patient we see.
Before coming to Centre for Surgery, many patients consider travelling abroad as they can get the cheapest Liposuction prices. Once the cost of flights, accommodation and the general hassle of having surgery in another country, the overall cost of the procedure can significantly spiral upwards compared with having liposuction in the UK. Many countries do not have the same standards of medical regulation as are found in the UK. The risks of achieving an unsatisfactory outcome or, even worse, serious injury are more likely when choosing to have liposuction in Turkey. We believe our prices for liposuction are fair and reasonable, and you will benefit from seeing an accredited specialist in Liposuction who is trained in all the gold standard liposuction techniques to help you achieve the very best results.
