The liposuction procedure with regards to the length of time in which it takes to perform varies from person to person as well as from surgeon to surgeon. A lot of the time with regards to the liposuction surgery depends mainly on how much fat you will want to have removed from your body as well as where that fat is stored at. On top of all of this, the surgeon performing the liposuction may need more or less time to do the procedure depending on the difficulty and the amount of experience he or she has.
The truth is that the time that the liposuction will rake should be the last thing on your mind. The most expensive part of the liposuction surgery is the surgeon’s fees while the anesthesia and the clinic fees only make up a small portion. The difference of 15 or even 30 minutes in length will not affect the total costs associated with the liposuction by much. In general, the anesthesia and the clinic fees take up about $2,000 to $3,000 of the total cost of the liposuction and therefore the amount of time with regards to the liposuction should not be a big issue.
Furthermore, after having undergone the procedure you will be left lying in bed for at least the next 24 hours so there is not really any reason to be rushing through the surgery as the shorter it is, the less time is spent perfecting the work. A good surgeon may take up to 2 hours finely sculpting the figure that you will have after the surgery. Think of liposuction as an art form that is performed by a surgeon. The Mona Lisa and Michelangelo’s David where not rushed and look how they turned out!
The most important part that anyone should worry about is the skills that their surgeon has. An experienced surgeon is much like a master artisan in which the outcome of the procedure is that much nicer. First start by making sure that your surgeon is certified by the board of cosmetic surgeons and then while you are at it take the time to look and the before and after pictures of the surgeon’s other patients, this will help you judge the surgeon’s abilities more accurately.
