How much does Liposuction cost in Columbus, Ohio?

Upon your liposuction consultation and examination, Dr. Sullivan will be able to access your body and answer your specific questions.

Is there a limit to how much liposuction surgery is safe at one time?

Dr. Christine Sullivan is a board certified plastic surgeon who has been trained to safely and effectively perform liposuction surgery.

Is there any aftercare with liposuction surgery?

Following liposuction surgery, lipo patients wear a compression garment to cover the treatment area. This garment is snug fitting and will keep the areas of treatment from significantly swelling.

Is lipo painful?

The amount of discomfort will vary from patient to patient. Most patients report a feeling of soreness for s few days after liposuction surgery. Some patients may also experience bruising.

Can liposuction be performed while I am awake?

There may be anesthetic choices available for lipo patients. The number of treatment areas, the size of the treatment areas, and your health history will help determine which anesthetic options are suitable for your liposuction surgery. During your liposuction consultation, Dr. Sullivan will discuss your individual options with you.

Best Decision! – Columbus, OH


Dr. Chris was so fantastic. In the full year it took me to make the decision to have the procedure, she patiently saw me for two consultations. She spent so much time with me answering the same questions and being honest about what she felt were realistic results. I was very apprehensive about going under anesthesia and she patiently answered many questions about that and was also very understanding. She was very good about putting herself in my shoes. The office is a comfortable, non-threatening place and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it nor would I hestiate to go back myself!
