Nonsurgical Fat Reduction

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Nonsurgical or minimally invasive options for fat reduction include technology that uses heat, cooling or an injected medication to reduce fat cells.

Nonsurgical fat reduction cost

The average cost of nonsurgical fat reduction is $1,681 and the average cost of injection lipolysis is $1,257, according to 2016 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The cost of nonsurgical fat reduction can vary. The average fee referenced above does not include facilities or other related expenses.

A surgeon's cost may be based on the expertise and qualifications of the person performing the treatment, time and effort the treatment requires and geographic office location.

Most health insurance does not cover cosmetic surgery or its complications, but many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask. Costs may include:

  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Surgeon's fee
  • Surgical facility costs

When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for nonsurgical fat reduction, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the procedure.
