What is Liposuction?
Modern liposuction was developed during the 1970s. Several physicians innovated techniques in the early and mid-70s to remove subcutaneous adipose (fat) tissue. But the major breakthrough was made by French surgeon Illouz who developed several blunt cannulas designed to target fat tissue and provide the precision-based suction that gave liposuction its name. He used the largest cannulas for liposuction of the flanks, hips, and buttocks, a medium-sized one for the abdomen and knees and the smallest size cannula for the face. Surgeons around the world have continued to make advances in liposuction techniques. California’s Jeffrey Klein made an important innovation by incorporating lidocaine, a local anesthetic, into the liposuction procedure. Called tumescent liposuction, this development helped contribute to increasing popularity. From 1999 to 2014, the number of liposuctions performed increased by 77%. Today, liposuction is the most popular aesthetic surgery performed around the world.

Is Liposuction Right for Me?
Liposuction is a targeted procedure designed to remove persistent areas of excess fat tissue and gently sculpt the body into a desirable shape. It’s not a weight-loss procedure designed to turn a size 14 into a size 6. If you have a significant amount of weight you want to lose, it’s best to postpone liposuction until you are within 10-15 pounds of your ideal body weight. Other factors may disqualify you for liposuction including major cardiovascular or coagulation conditions. Liposuction should also be delayed if you are pregnant or plan on getting pregnant soon. To get the most value from your liposuction dollar, you should make sure you understand what it is and isn’t. Liposuction works the best for individuals that already maintain a nutritious diet and get regular exercise but still have difficult-to-remove fat deposits.

Liposuction Costs in Denver, Colorado
The costs for liposuction reflect a variety of influencing factors. It can be helpful to understand everything that goes into the cost of a liposuction procedure.
- The number of treatment sites – If you are just getting a single liposuction procedure on a small region, the cost will not be as much as it will be if you choose multiple locations.
- Anesthesia – Most liposuction is now performed using local anesthesia. However, if you choose to have liposuction under general anesthesia, it may increase the cost of the procedure for you.
- Hospital or surgical facility fees – These fees are usually built into the overall cost of a procedure. Liposuction performed at hospitals or accredited surgical facilities can increase the cost. You don’t want to try to save money by having liposuction performed in a lower quality facility as that can increase the risk of complications.
- Compression garment cost – Aftercare is important after liposuction. Depending on the location of your procedure, you may be given a special compression garment tailored to reduce swelling, promote your body’s natural healing, and protect the overall results of your procedure. This can incur additional costs. You should make sure to wear the garment as instructed. You want to maximize your opportunity to achieve the best results possible.
- Price of prescription medications – You will need prescription medication and there will be an additional cost for prescription medications.
- The surgeon’s fee – Make sure to ask about how the surgeon’s fees are included in any price estimate. You wouldn’t want to trust your body to a physician without the proper training and experience to perform safe and effective liposuction.
In general, our price structures follow this format:
- First Area = $3,000
- Second Area = 25% off
- Third Area = 50% off

Types of Liposuction
At the ABS Institute, our menu of liposuction procedures includes the latest, proven techniques on the market.
At the ABS Institute, we offer the most advanced techniques currently available. Our cannulas are the best on the market and a significant improvement over the three base models Illouz created in the 1970s. We’ve developed six levels of liposuction that can be adapted to any individual case. Level 1 begins with the removal of the undesirable pockets of fat that have eluded your best efforts. As the levels progress, more involved techniques are added including skin tightening, fat grafting, advanced body sculpting, and the removal of excess skin. During your consultation, the ABS Institute will inform you of any price differences to ensure you can make an informed decision.
Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2006, SmartLipo consists of combining traditional liposuction with the latest innovations in laser body sculpting. SmartLipo uses the laser’s liquefying effect to supplement the fat removal of traditional liposuction. With SmartLipo, we can perform more precisely targeted removal of fat that produces more finely tuned body sculpting. You benefit with more natural-looking results designed to enhance your natural beauty. During your consultation, ask your ABS Institute doctor about the cost of SmartLipo and together you can determine if it’s a smart choice for your situation.
VASER liposuction represents another powerful innovation that improves the efficacy of traditional liposuction. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. It means that VASER liposuction incorporates ultrasonic waves to help with the remodeling of the underlying tissue in addition to the fat removal benefits. With VASER, we can remove fat from the problematic areas with greater precision. This process allows us to better shape and sculpt your remaining tissue to achieve attractive, natural-looking results. VASER results in less blood loss, less chance of bruising, and quicker recovery time. During your consultation, we can go over any additional costs for VASER liposuction and determine if it’s a great option for you.
We understand that an attempted procedure that didn’t achieve the results you want can be a discouraging process. If you’ve undergone liposuction elsewhere and are not happy with the results, please come in for a consultation. Our body sculpting experts have corrected aberrant results and worked with patients to craft the results they want. Come in for a consultation and explain your situation and we can work out a reasonably priced solution for your liposuction repair.

Yes. At the ABS Institute, we offer the option to finance your liposuction procedure. We have several options available and we’ll work with you to establish the best line of credit for your situation.
For patients to feel liposuction was worth the money, it’s important to hold realistic expectations about what liposuction can and can’t achieve. Often, patients who are dissatisfied with a procedure came in with unreasonable expectations. Their surgeon did not properly explain what can and can’t be achieved. To ensure you have realistic expectations, ask to see before-and-after photos. If you require weight-loss surgery, there are more appropriate options than liposuction.
