Everyone wants to know how much plastic surgery costs. The price of a cosmetic procedure varies according to the type and complexity of the procedure being performed, as well as whether several procedures are being combined together. There are three components to the charge of a surgical procedure: the surgeon’s fee, the facility fee (the charge for the operating room, nurses and equipment), and the anesthesia fee. Cosmetic surgery may cost less than most people realize, and can range in price from the cost of dinner at a nice restaurant to the price of a resort vacation. Office procedures not requiring anesthesia, like BOTOX®, Radiesse®, Juvederm® and Collagen injections, chemical peels, laser hair removal or spider vein treatments range from less than $100 to just less than $2,000. True surgical procedures like liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, or facelift range from $2,500 to $12,000, depending on the extent, magnitude and number of procedures performed. In order to help patients afford these costs we offer a variety of payment options, including personal checks and credit cards as well as financing arrangements with a local bank and national health care credit organizations (Care-Credit). Cost, however, should not be the sole determining factor when opting for cosmetic surgery. Patients should feel comfortable and confident with their surgeon and his staff. When considering plastic surgery, or indeed any cosmetic procedure, be sure to select a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). As a board certified plastic surgeon with over 15 years of clinical practice experience and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (The Mark of Distinction in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery® ASAPS),(the mark of distinction in cosmetic plastic surgery). Dr. Robert Kimmel welcomes the opportunity to help you achieve your goals and enjoy a happier, more confident lifestyle. In addition, the surgery should be performed in a state licensed, nationally-accredited surgical facility by a surgeon credentialed to perform the same procedure in a local hospital where he has active staff admitting privileges.
Cosmetic surgery should most appropriately be viewed as a long term investment in oneself. How you look or how you feel about the way you look, whether it’s your skin texture, facial appearance, body shape or how your clothes fit, is something that most people think about every day. When taken in the context of gaining daily comfort and satisfaction with ones appearance, cosmetic surgery is truly a bargain.
