Facial Liposuction is a wonderful procedure for a patient seeking a minimally invasive option to improve their neckline. Liposuction of the neck can be effective in patients who have excess fat and loose skin. A defined neckline will bring an elegant look to a female face and a more masculine profile in men. Anytime a patient is considering undergoing liposuction of the neck, they show interest in the cost of neck liposuction so they plan accordingly.
What are the Factors That Go into the Cost of a Neck Liposuction?
A team of healthcare professionals and supplies are utilized during the process of undergoing liposuction of the neck. There are 3 main components in the price of facial liposuction:
- Facility Fee
- Anesthesia Fee
- Surgeon’s Fee
What is the Facility Fee?
That facility is compensated for the services and supplies they provide. In the case of neck liposuction, the office, surgery center, or hospital would all be suitable facilities to perform the procedure. This fee is used to pay the staff, cost of supplies, and equipment of the facility. Additionally, fees cover the facility’s overhead including rent, utilities, cleaning staff, and other expenses.
The facility fee varies from each location, but typically this fee will be less at an office. This is a great option if patients are looking to bring down the price of neck liposuction.
What is the Anesthesia Fee?
I do not like pain, and I take great efforts to ensure my patients have the most comfortable experience. Neck liposuction can be completed with the patient either asleep or under twilight sedation. The anesthesia fee is used to cover the costs of the medical personal giving the anesthesia (anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist) and all their supplies. Their supplies include medications and equipment that they use during your procedure.
If a patient chooses to undergo neck liposuction while awake, they would not be required to pay an anesthesia fee. For this reason, undergoing neck liposuction while awake would be more affordable than having the procedure while asleep. If the procedure is complete while the patient is awake, the patient is given oral medications and a series of injections in order to prevent any discomfort.
What Does the Surgeon’s Fee Account for During Liposuction of the Neck?
This fee covers the compensation for your surgeon and the employees of the facial plastic surgeon’s office. The surgeon’s fee covers all of the appointments you have with the doctor before and after the procedures, which typically entails 1-2 appointments before surgery and at least 4 appointments after surgery. It covers the time that the surgeon takes to perform the surgery which varies from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours.
This fee is used to cover the overhead of a medical practice to pay staff, supplies to care for patients, electricity, rent, and other costs. There are many other costs that are covered from the surgeon’s fee that do not go directly to your doctor.
What Determines the Range in the Cost of Facial Liposuction?
The biggest variable is the location of the procedure and type of anesthesia. Facial liposuction in the office is more affordable than in a surgery center or hospital. The procedure completed while the patient is awake is less expensive than a patient that is placed asleep by anesthesia, since an anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist needs to be compensated as well.
What is the General Cost of Neck Liposuction in Charlotte?
