Weight Loss New Year's Resolutions Fail for 2013, How to Fix That

Here’s your first bit of bad news for 2013. According to a study done by Stanford University, 88 percent of New Year’s Resolutions fail within the first month. So, if your New Year’s resolution is to lose weight, we suggest a better and easier way to get to that goal.  

Rather than sign up and spend a monthly fee at your local gym, why not use that money toward a goal that has a better chance of survival? Let's look at how the total amount of that yearly gym membership could pay for your liposuction.

Calculating the Cost of Liposuction

The average liposuction cost is $3,000, but that cost can change to your benefit, depending on which surgeon you chose, and the body part you wish to change.  Here are some ways to use that money allotted for a monthly gym membership this year:

  • Place the money in a piggy bank, saving it up for the liposuction
  • Put the liposuction on a credit card. Turn the gym membership payments into a credit card payment
  • Look into a private financing plan from your liposuction doctor. This company called Care Credit can help. 

Liposuction Costs by Body Part

Now, its important to get a better estimate of how much money you need. The only way to calculate that is by taking a look at the body part you desire to improve. Many people are interested in liposuction in their tummy area, while others are interested in liposuction of their hips, thighs or arms. Sure, you can get your entire body contoured, but keep in mind, each treated body part translates to a higher price tag. We have listed average liposuction costs by body part below for your review:

  • Abdomen: $3,000 to $7,500
  • Anterior Thighs and Knees: $2,000 to $5,000
  • Arms: $1,500 to $5,000
  • Back: $1,500 to $4,000
  • Breasts: $3,000 to $7,500
  • Buttocks: $1,500 to $4,500
  • Chin, Cheeks, Jowls or Neck: $2,000 to $5,000
  • Flanks: $2,000 to $5,000
  • Hips or Waist: $1,600 to $5,000
  • Inner Thighs and Knees: $2,000 to $5,000
  •  Lower Abdomen: $2,000
