The cost of body sculpting depends on the area treated, number of sessions, and number of body parts targeted: sculpting the abdomen may cost nearly $1,500, while a thigh reduction can cost over $2,500 as of 2015, according to U.S. News & World Report. These prices apply to a procedure called CoolSculpting, which freezes fat from the body through a non-surgical method. A laser fat removal, called Zerona, works to eliminate fat cells, and can cost between $1,500 and $2,000 for six treatment sessions of a single area.
In addition to these areas, people seek body sculpting for arms, legs, inner thighs and even their entire bodies. A full-body sculpt can cost up to $30,000 according to WebMD. Having excess skin removed from the arms costs roughly $8,000, while tightening the inner thighs costs up to $10,000 as of 2015. Some people add additional procedures, such as upper back tightening; women may also choose to have a breast lift, which averages around $15,000. To round out the look, some people add a neck and face lift, which costs around $15,000.
In addition to these surgeries, liposuction is another option for people looking to lose excess skin. A typical liposuction of the abdomen, called a tummy tuck, costs between $5,000 and $9,000, say authors at U.S. News & World Report. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not usually cover the cost of cosmetic treatments. However, many doctors have financing arrangements to help customers cover the cost of treatments through incremental payments over time.
