Many patients wishing to undergo liposuction want thorough information on the price of treatment at the outset. In this article, we’ll explain how we calculate the cost of your liposuction procedure, including any additional costs you may incur to ensure you don’t encounter any hidden fees when scheduling your surgery.
For each patient, the cost of the treatment will depend on the size of the treatment areas, the liposuction technology, and the overall complexity of the surgery. Therefore, you will receive the price of your liposuction treatment after consulting with our plastic surgeon, who will design a bespoke cosmetic surgery procedure to produce your desired results.
Dr. Omar Tillo, the medical director at the CREO Clinic, is a body contouring expert providing bespoke treatment built around a patient’s equally unique needs. To book a consultation with Dr. Tillo, contact the CREO Clinic today.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
Liposuction prices can vary depending on the size and number of areas treated:
|Small area (neck/chin)||1 large area||2 large areas||3 large areas||4 large areas|
If more areas require treatment, there is a £1,000 charge per additional area. Moreover, HD liposuction can be carried out at an extra cost of £1,500 per area.
Prices can also vary depending on the type of liposuction performed and the kind of technology used. For example, BodyTite prices start from £5,500 for one area, whereas prices for Renuvion begin at £6,500.

Why Creo Clinic is Different
At the CREO Clinic, we are built on an ethos of transparency and speciality. For this reason, our body contouring surgeon only specialises in and performs surgical procedures from the neck down. Dr. Tillo has therefore amassed the specialist skills and experience needed to conduct transformational liposuction procedures for his patients.
For patients seeking to spread the cost of their treatment, the CREO Clinic also provides a range of financing options, including interest free financing for up to one year.
What’s Included In The Price?
The aforementioned prices are inclusive of:
- Local anaesthetic and anaesthetist fees
- Surgeon’s fees
- Nurses’ fees
- Use of the surgical facility
- Compression garments
- Follow-up appointments to monitor your progress
There are additional charges for private prescriptions from Dr. Tillo as well as the use of chaperone services, additional examinations or scans, and lymphatic drainage massages.
Types of Liposuction
Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (Vaser)
Vaser liposuction utilises ultrasound energy to target fat cells close to the muscle, breaking fat apart before removing it from the body. As a result, the targeted areas can be treated with greater precision to allow finer contouring. Patients who are seeking to tone smaller areas of the body, such as the back of the arms, are ideal candidates for Vaser liposuction.
BodyTite, also known as radiofrequency assisted liposuction, is a minimally invasive liposuction procedure using sound energy to break up fat and tighten the skin at the same time. In doing so, BodyTite is regarded as a highly effective body contouring procedure with the added benefit of minimal downtime.
Renuvion combines helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to gently heat the connective tissue beneath the skin, causing shrinking and contraction. In addition, by heating these tissues, Renuvion stimulates collagen production. As a result, patients can enjoy tighter, rejuvenated skin without damaging the dermis.
Power Assisted Liposuction
Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) is a fat removal surgery that uses motorised cannulas that vibrate and move in different directions to release the fat before it is suctioned out of the body. PAL is preferred by many due to its effectiveness at removing larger amounts of fat and for being less labour-intensive. In addition, PAL is favoured for use in fat transfer procedures as it minimises the damage done to the harvested fat.
What Areas Of The Body Can Liposuction Treat?
Our liposuction surgeons perform traditional liposuction, a minimally invasive procedure, on targeted areas of the body containing excess fat that the patient wishes to contour. The image below details each body part that we can sculpt with a liposuction.
Why Clinics Can Charge Different Prices
Liposuction fees can vary from clinic to clinic for a number of reasons. First, the qualifications and experience of the surgeon can vastly differ between clinics, with more qualified surgeons typically charging higher fees. At the CREO Clinic, Dr. Omar Tillo is a specialist in body contouring procedures like liposuction, meaning he has the necessary skill set to carry out this delicate procedure.
Liposuction costs can also vary depending on the different liposuction technologies used, the facility where the procedure is carried out, and the type of anaesthetic required.
Combining Procedures With Liposuction
Fat transfer is a cosmetic surgery that extracts excess fat through liposuction surgery and injects it into a part of the body that the patient wishes to enhance. In particular, Brazilian Butt Lift and breast augmentation are two popular surgeries that add volume through fat transfer.
As with liposuction, the cost of a fat transfer treatment depends on the number and size of the sections you wish to treat. In general, prices for fat transfer start from £7,900.
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgery that removes excess skin, and in some cases, tightens the abdominal muscles. Surgeons use liposuction during a tummy tuck when patients have a significant amount of excess fat in the abdomen and want to define the muscles. In general, prices for a standard tummy tuck surgery start from £10,900.
Gynecomastia, commonly called ‘man boobs’, is a condition that leads to the enlargement of breast tissue in men. In many cases, the accumulation of excess fat in the chest can cause or accentuate gynecomastia. In such cases, surgeons use liposuction alone or with gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction. In general, prices for gynecomastia surgery start from £3,900.
Side Effects With Liposuction
After surgery, patients may experience side effects such as swelling, bruising and some numbness in the treatment zones. These typically dissipate within a few days.
Who’s A Candidate For Liposuction In The UK
A good candidate should be seeking to remove excess, stubborn fat deposits in their body. Candidates should also:
- Be in good physical and psychological health.
- Be at their ideal weight, with a BMI below 35. You can find out whether you have a suitable BMI by using our BMI calculator.
- Have realistic expectations about the results liposuction can achieve.
Is Liposuction Worth It?
Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure thanks to its ability to finely contour targeted areas of the body. Liposuction permanently removes stubborn fat deposits that can’t be treated with lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise alone. In addition, liposuction requires relatively little downtime compared to other cosmetic procedures.
For these reasons, the vast majority of patients consider it to be a worthwhile procedure.
