A patient asks:
I am interested in doing a liposuction on my thighs. What determines the costs?
It depends on the extent of the liposuction, but especially on the estimated amount of work, which can even be higher in case of smaller fat pads than in case of bigger ones. It also depends on the type of cannulas used (the use of fine microcannulas is more expensive than the use of thicker regular liposuction cannulas). Furthermore it makes a difference if the liposculpture is therapeutically indicated or just performed for body modification. In case liposuction only serves as measure to optimize the body silhouette, 20 % VAT are added to the price.
