Cost for Liposuction in Sydney
What is the cost for liposuction in Sydney?
Like all surgical procedures, liposuction in Sydney is a complex procedure involving care by multiple different medical professionals, as well as the use of hospital operating facilities and a variety of equipment and supplies. That means there are a few different elements to take into consideration when billing for a Liposuction Operation. The total fees for liposuction in Sydney include:
• The Surgeon’s Fee (+/- Assistant’s fee)
• The Anaesthetist’s Fee
• The Hospital/Facility Fee (includes both the Theatre & Accommodation Fees)
Liposuction is billed in terms of the time the operation takes, or is expected to take. Because of this, there is a great deal of variation in the cost of the procedure for different patients. There are also differences in the patient’s other medical needs, and other factors that can affect the price. For ease of reference, some indicative costs are provided here; this is only an estimate. When you visit your Specialist Plastic Surgeon in Sydney for your consultation, you will receive a more detailed and personalised estimate of what the costs are expected to be for your liposuction.

The facility fees vary from place to place and over time, and this can affect your overall costs for the procedure. We are aware that finances are a significant consideration for many patients, and we do our best to keep your costs as low as possible. We are vigilant in watching for options that will save our patients money.
However, we will never compromise results or safety to save money. Doing so would go against our ethics, and it would also end up costing more in the end, because additional procedures would be needed to fix the problems created. It’s worth paying the cost for a safe procedure that delivers the results you’re looking for, rather than cutting corners.
Keep in mind that the above cost is only an estimate. Your costs could be higher, and will depend on whether or not you have private health insurance and which type of insurance. Dr Sandercoe cannot predict your exact costs for your liposuction in Sydney without examining you and determining your personal situation. To get a more personalised cost estimate for your liposuction, a consultation with your Specialist Plastic Surgeon is necessary.
