Neck Liposuction Cost
Excess accumulation of fat deposits in the neck area is a common problem for both men and women. One of the challenges with stubborn fat pockets in this area is that it can be difficult to reduce this fat with exercise or diet. In such a situation, neck liposuction cosmetic surgery may be recommended to regain a slimmer, firmer, youthful looking neck.
During the initial consultation process, the plastic surgeon will discuss all aspects of the neck liposuction procedure, including its estimated costs. The first goal of the surgeon will be to ensure that the patient makes an informed choice about the procedure. Dr. Eric Yavrouian is an experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon providing neck liposuction to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.
The price tag for neck liposuction will usually differ between two places due to a number of factors. Geographical location of the practice is one of the key factors. The living cost index will vary from one city to another, which will impact the average monetary amount of most types of commodities and services, including plastic surgery services.
Extent of Surgery
When the surgeon prepares a detailed surgical plan for neck liposuction, they will consult the patient closely and accommodate the patient’s unique aesthetic goals in the plan. This will determine the extent of cosmetic surgery to be performed, the amount of fat required to be removed from the neck region, and whether neck, chin and cheek liposuction may be performed in conjunction.
If the patient needs only a minor surgery with minimal neck fat reduction as a maintenance procedure, the dollar amount will be relatively lower, as compared to a situation where significant amount of fat must be removed from multiple areas. In a few cases, the surgeon may decide to redistribute the liposuctioned fat from the neck to certain depleted areas to produce more uniform contours.
The effect on your bank account in regards to this procedure may go up in such cases, where the procedure is more complex, involves more time, and requires the use of complex techniques and technology. When neck liposuction is performed in combination with other procedures such as a facelift, the overall procedure will become more cost-effective. Leading facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for neck liposuction.
If the neck liposuction procedure is performed using the traditional surgical technique, it may require general anesthesia. This will push up the overall cost of surgery. On the other hand, if tumescent liposuction technique is used, it will only require local anesthesia, which will have a lower cost. Laser or ultrasound assisted liposuction techniques can make the procedure relatively less invasive, but may add to the costs marginally.
Insurance and Financing
Neck liposuction is usually performed for aesthetic reasons. Therefore, health insurance coverage is not likely to be available. In exceptional cases, it may be performed as a medical necessity, which may be covered fully or partially under insurance. Patients can seek affordable financing through professional medical care finance firms to make the payment in convenient monthly installments.
