Specialty surgeon complete packaged procedure for abdomen and back liposuction.
The location of abdominal fat is an important factor in predicting the success of abdominal liposuction. Abdominal fat occurs in two different levels: superficial and deep. Superficial abdominal fat is located just below the skin and above the abdominal muscles.
The deep abdominal fat is located inside the abdominal cavity on the intestines. Some people have more deep (intestinal) fat than subcutaneous fat. Subcutaneous fat can be removed by liposuction. Intestinal fat cannot be removed by liposuction because it would be too dangerous. Fat on the intestines can only be diminished by weight loss through diet and exercise. Thus liposuction cannot remove all of the abdominal fat.
Most patients have more subcutaneous fat than intestinal fat and will see a good cosmetic improvement with abdominal liposuction.
The package includes abdomen and back liposuction, cosmetic surgery to remove excess fat from the abdomen and back to achieve a flatter abdomen and flank firmness.
Treatment cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, related medical procedures, and drugs required to administer the plan of care. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
