The Cost of Plastic Surgery & Why You Get What You Pay For

If you are considering plastic surgery or a cosmetic procedure, one of the first things you might be asking is, how much will it cost? As you start to look into more providers, you will notice that costs can vary drastically but it’s important to recognize that cost should not always be the main deciding factor. Oftentimes, a higher cost comes with a more experienced surgeon and a better chance for a successful outcome and satisfying results.

Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Costs

When you visit Dr. Angelchik, the first thing he will want to discuss is your goals and what you are hoping to achieve from a cosmetic procedure. Sometimes, non-surgical procedures can offer the same results as surgery at a much lower cost. On the other hand, you might spend less money on a non-surgical procedure and not be completely satisfied. Surgery may be the better option if your goals involve a dramatic change or a larger amount of work. It all depends on your body’s unique anatomy and which option will give you the results you desire.

What Determines the Cost of a Cosmetic Procedure?

The cost of surgical or cosmetic procedures might seem high, but there are several “behind the scenes” costs you might not be aware of. The cost of your procedure is determined not only by the surgeon’s fees and the type of procedure you are getting, but also fees for the hospital or surgery center, staff members, and anesthesiology. Surgical procedures are more expensive than non-surgical treatments because they require more work but give much longer-lasting results. The costs may seem more reasonable when you compare the cost of a facelift that lasts ten years to Botox that must be redone every few months, for example.

Importance of Board Certification

Going to a board-certified surgeon means you will be taken care of by a highly trained doctor with years of experience. Receiving a board certification requires your doctor to not only earn a medical degree, but also to complete 3-7 years of residency training in a certified, reputable program. They can then obtain their medical license after passing a rigorous test.

These doctors will be up to date on the latest techniques and research that they can use to give you the best procedure options. Additionally, it will be much less likely that you experience complications so you can expect not only a successful surgery but also an easier recovery.
