Liposuction Costs and Financing Options


Congratulations! You have finally made the big decision that it is time to undergo liposuction. You have selected Dr. Vincent Marin because you want only the best cosmetic surgeon to help bring out the new you. Now, of course, comes the most daunting part of the process – thinking about costs and financing for your liposuction surgery. At Dr. Marin’s San Diego practice, liposuction surgery starts at $3,800. Here, we explain your various financing options so that you can pick the best option to pay for liposuction surgery. For a full list of average procedure prices and options, please visit our financing and fees page.

Insurance Coverage: Most insurance plans do not cover for cosmetic surgery, as it is considered to be elective. Obviously, there are exceptions, such as in the case of rhinoplasty/septoplasty procedures, upper eyelid lift surgery, and breast reduction or reconstruction surgeries, which may be recommended by your regular doctor. However, for the most part, surgeries such as liposuction will not be covered. You should first check with your regular doctor and your insurance company, just in case your cosmetic surgery is covered. Our office can help if you decide to try filing a claim with your insurance carrier.

Other Payment Options: Our office will take cash, personal checks, and all major credit cards as forms of payment. We also accept a number of financing providers to make it easier for more patients to have cosmetic surgery.

CareCredit is perhaps the best known of these providers, as the company works exclusively in the health care arena, and has long offered financing options to patients undergoing cosmetic surgery. No-interest financing options are available for terms lasting anywhere from six to 24 months. Approval for CareCredit is very fast, and may even be done during your consultative visit with Dr. Marin. CareCredit works much like a credit card. You can make monthly no-interest payments toward your liposuction, just as you would with a major credit card.

What Goes Into Pricing: A liposuction procedure starts at $3,800. Prices may very, depending on the extent of the procedure, duration of anesthesia, and if multiple procedure are done at once (such as combining liposuction with a thigh lift). Certain areas of the body, such as under the chin are priced at the lower end of the price scale, while areas such as the abdomen and thighs tend to be more costly. You should discuss your needs with Dr. Marin when you come in for a consultation, so that he can offer you the best available pricing.

Dr. Marin’s office is committed to working with you every step of the way. We will be there from initial consultation, to post-surgical follow-up visits. A large part of this commitment includes helping you find the payment and financing option that works best for you. We believe that cosmetic surgery, such as liposuction, should be available to those who wish it. Our various payment options are a representation of our commitment to just that belief.
