Men and women who want a more sculpted and slender physique may benefit from surgical fat removal with liposuction. Ronald M. Friedman, M.D., is a leading board-certified plastic surgeon who develops customized body contouring procedures to give patients the slimmer contours they desire. On average, liposuction pricing starts at $2,750 for liposuction under the chin (under local anesthesia) and $5,250 for liposuction of the abdomen or love handles (under general anesthesia). The average price for liposuction is $5,800 in the Dallas, Frisco, and Plano, Texas areas. Dr. Friedman tailors each surgery to meet his patients’ objectives, which can affect the price of the procedure. The cost of liposuction includes:

  1. Surgeon’s fee
    Dr. Friedman takes the time to perform every step of his patients’ surgeries personally. He does not appoint any of the operational tasks to physician’s assistants or nurses.
  2. Anesthesiologist’s fee
    Working with a specially trained team is crucial for the comfort and safety of all patients. Dr. Friedman employs only experienced physician anesthesiologists to administer general anesthesia. Patients who opt for chin liposuction may be given local anesthesia, rather than general anesthesia.
  3. Facility fee
    As a nationally accredited surgery center, the West Plano Plastic Surgery Center is dedicated to delivering a comfortable, private, and safe surgical experience. The Center is conveniently located on the campus of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano.
  4. All postoperative visits
    Patients should return to our facility for an assessment at 1 week, 5 weeks, and 7 months after their liposuction procedure. These postoperative visits come at no additional cost. All evaluations of the patient’s healing, postoperative progress, and overall condition are done exclusively by Dr. Friedman. If there are any concerns or questions, additional appointments may be scheduled.
