    Dear Ms. Chapman,

    Thank you for your question. It is difficult to give you an accurate answer without seeing your photographs or examining you. But, from your history and description is sounds as if you would benefit from liposuction and a “tummy tuck”, or possibly a combination of the two procedures. Liposuction is definetely the best procedure for the love handles.
    The fee range for liposuction is approximately $2500 per site for the first site and each additional site is discounted. The fee for an abdominoplasty “tummy tuck ” varies from $4500 to $9000 depending on the type of abdominoplasty performd. The cost of the operating room and anesthesia vary with the amount of time each procedure requires.

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Again, thank you for sharing your question and good luck. I would be delighted to see in consultation if you desire.

    Dear Brittany, Liposuction simply removes fat but does not remove excess skin. Lift procedures like a tummy tuck or body lift remove both skin and fat. The best procedure for you can not be determined without an exam in person. The costs vary greatly depending on the best procedure for you, the time required to perform the procedure and where it is performed. I suggest you make an appointment(s) with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your particular case in person. Best wishes, Dr Woodyard
