Liposuction – Hips and Lower Back

As with many areas of the abdomen, the lower back and hips (the sides of the abdomen just above the hips) are areas that may store excess fat.

Sculpt’s liposuction treatment is a safe, effective and proven way of reducing the fat around the lower back.


Understanding ‘weight loss’ and ‘liposuction’.

When we gain weight, our fat cells enlarge. They will increase in size due to excess oil within the actual fat cell. When we lose weight, the fat cell still remains there, it just decreases in size because the oil within has reduced. So, we can consider fat cells as ‘containers that hold oil’.

When we perform liposuction or liposculpture, we physically remove these containers full of oil. This means, they can never come back.

About the Liposuction or Sculpting Procedure

The procedure involves provision of medications as well twilight sedation. You should be a in a comfortable position, relaxed, rather drowsy but able to listen to instruction. You will then be given a local to numb the area where we are removing your body fat. The procedure shouldn’t cause any discomfort due to the .

From this point we will simply harvest your fat, the incision points are very small. Typically only 1 to 2cm in width, they do not require stitches. We aim to place the incisions in discrete locations. For a common liposuction procedure we will need to make about 2 to 4 incision sites. Of course this varies from patient to patient, procedure to procedure.

On completion of the procedure, you will be moved to our patient recovery lounge to rest and sleep. The sedative can take a few hours to wear off, but generally, patients are ready to go home about an hour after the surgery. You should be able to walk out of the surgery, but you may feel dizzy and lightheaded.

Our team will discuss with you our set of post-operative care instructions to encourage the healing process.

Liposuction to Lower back and Sides

The typical cost of liposuction to remove love handles/muffin top is $5,500*

  • This cost does not cover the entire lower back, if you would like to extend the procedure to;
    • full lower back, this will add an extra $1,200*
    • mid back, will add an extra $1,100*
    • upper back, will add an extra $1,900*

Typically we can combine 3 of these areas in a single treatment, the total price will be approx. $7,200*.

*These are typical costs, for the average person it should not change. However, every patient is different, these prices may change per patient scenario.
