HOW MUCH IS LIPOSUCTION IN THE UK?
WHAT IS LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction, commonly referred to as ‘lipoplasty’, ‘liposculpture’ or simply ‘lipo,’ is a cosmetic surgery procedure which aims to get rid of stubborn areas of fat deposits. Unlike weight loss procedures, liposuction is used to sculpt and contour different areas of the body, rather than removing large amounts of fat. The procedure involves the removal of specific areas of fat through the use of suction and a cannula.
The most popular body areas treated by liposuction are:
- Inner Thighs
- Out Thighs
- Upper arms
- Male breasts
WHAT DOES THE LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE INVOLVE?
There are different varieties of liposuction: traditional, vaser, and non-surgical vaser.
Traditional liposuction uses a suction device attached to a small tube to remove targeted areas of fat. In contrast, vaser liposuction utilises state-of-the-art ultrasonic technology to break down fat, before it’s removed from the body. Non-surgical vaser lipo uses the same technology as vaser, but is typically used for smaller areas of the body such as the chin and cheeks.
If you are having only a small area of fat removed with non-surgical vaser liposuction, your surgeon might use local anaesthetic to numb the area. Traditional and vaser liposuction will typically require general anaesthetic, meaning that you will be asleep for the whole procedure.
CAN I GET LIPOSUCTION ON THE NHS?
As liposuction is a purely cosmetic procedure, it’s not typically available on the NHS. However, in some rare cases, liposuction can be performed for health reasons. This might happen if you have lymphoedema, a condition that causes swelling of the arms and legs, or lipoedema, where an abnormal amount of fat build up in the legs, thighs and buttocks.
HOW MUCH DOES LIPOSUCTION COST IN THE UK?
Liposuction prices can vary depending on your desired results. The price takes into account many factors, including the amount of work you need, the type of liposuction you’re having and the surgical provider you choose. It’s important to bear these factors in mind when planning your liposuction procedure, without being tempted to make a quick decision based on price alone.

WHAT FACTORS AFFECT LIPOSUCTION COST?
The total cost of your liposuction will depend on a few different factors, which will mostly be related to your desired results. For example, the technique that your surgeon uses to achieve your ideal results can affect the total cost of your procedure. The number and size of areas that you’re having treated can also affect the price of your liposuction.
WHAT DOES THE PRICE TYPICALLY INCLUDE?
Your liposuction procedure package will depend on the surgical provider that you choose to go with, and it’s always worth asking the question of “Are there any additional fees?” before you make your decision. At Transform, we offer all patients a free, no-obligation consultation so that they can weigh up their options and make an informed choice.
Typically, though, the price of liposuction includes:
- Surgeon’s fees
- Anaesthesia (if necessary)
- Meals after surgery
- Pain relief and other associated medication
- Inclusive aftercare, with the offer of an extended warranty.
We believe in good, well-rounded aftercare. It’s every bit as important as the procedure itself. That’s why we strive to give our patients the very best attention after their treatment, and we listen when you tell us what you need.

“For years I struggled with my stretch marks and loose skin, and would always cover my body up. No matter how much exercise I did, it would never tighten up or disappear. This is when I knew I needed to do something about it and booked a tummy tuck and liposuction with Transform.
My surgeon assistant was always in constant communication, giving me all the information I needed.
On the day of my surgery I arrived at Burcot Hall Hospital, which is tucked away in the quiet countryside, and was greeted by lovely nurses who made me feel very welcome. My surgeon visited me and explained the procedure again, and before I knew it the operation was complete and I woke up in my private room! I would 100% recommend Transform to anyone who is considering liposuction and/or a tummy tuck.”
“I had my tummy tuck with liposuction 6 days ago, and the results are already breath-taking. I’ve waited 10 years for this moment after having two kids and it’s life changing. For anyone thinking of doing this, my advice is to go for it! This surgery really has transformed my body."
