This cost is double the cost of being operated on one area. When you are operated about five areas at once you can be charged $11000.The area where you are being operated is something that determines the amount of money that you will pay. For example the lower abdomen is charged the cheapest amount. You find that they charge $2000 to $2500. Note that the cost for liposuction in Houston may vary.
