Liposuction Cost San Antonio
Even with diet and exercise, the body can retain fat deposits in certain areas. If you have struggled to burn fat without success, liposuction is an excellent surgical treatment option. Liposuction removes stubborn fat deposits from one or more areas of the body using a specialized suctioning tool. Dr. Constance Barone is a skilled plastic surgeon who uses liposuction to sculpt and smooth her patients' problem areas.

The Cost of Liposuction
Liposuction is one of few plastic surgery procedures that can be applied to many different areas of the body. Because liposuction application is so versatile, no two procedures cost the same. Different variables factor into final liposuction cost, including the quality of the plastic surgeon, her staff, her facility, the area of the body being treated, and the type of anesthesia used. After consulting with Dr. Barone, you will better understand these factors.
Liposuction is typically less expensive in areas as of the body such as the arms. Larger areas like the abdomen cost more, because more fat is typically removed. Liposuction can also be used to treat the legs, face, neck, chin, abdomen, flanks, buttocks, arms, and back. Many patients choose to have liposuction on several areas of their bodies simultaneously, consolidating healing time and creating a more noticeable body transformation. Cost typically increases with the amount of fat removed and the number of areas treated.
Our Liposuction Method
Dr. Barone specializes in awake liposuction, which is performed using only local anesthesia. During this procedure, patients stay awake during their surgeries, but feel little or no pain. Awake liposuction is less expensive than IV sedation or general sedation in most cases, and requires a shorter in-office recovery period.
Dr. Barone uses the custom acoustic liposuction (CAL) system for her patients because it effectively removes fat deposits while minimally impacting surrounding tissues. Also known as the Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (NIL) system, this method allows patients to be involved in their treatment, feel less pain and soreness during recovery, and return to normal physical activities faster. CAL liposuction uses low-frequency acoustic infrasonic vibrations to liquefy fat tissues before they are removed using a small probe instrument. This is different than traditional liposuction, in which tissues are physically broken apart using a wand before being extracted from the body.
