The plastic surgeons at Florida Plastic Surgery Group discuss costs of plastic surgery procedures, aspects of treatment that factor into the total price, and options for patients that can make paying for cosmetic enhancement as financially convenient as possible.
Jacksonville, FL – Interest in plastic surgery and other procedures designed to enhance one’s appearance remains popular among both women and men. In fact, even during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic when many elective surgeries had to be cancelled across the U.S., statistics from Google Trends cited a significant jump in searches for plastic surgery. The Jacksonville plastic surgeons at Florida Plastic Surgery Group say this may have been an indication that more and more individuals were using downtime during stay-at-home orders to research their options and consider the possibility of plastic surgery at some point in the near-future. Among general plastic surgery inquiries, online searches with questions about plastic surgery prices and costs have also remained popular. With that in mind, the doctors say it’s a good idea for interested individuals to be familiar with some of the basic components that factor into the overall price of certain procedures.
Florida Plastic Surgery Group recently added a guide on the practice’s website that lists estimates of plastic surgery costs and price ranges for an array of available treatments. Many of the most popular procedures at the practice are presented, including treatments such as breast augmentation, facelift surgery, tummy tuck surgery, and others. The doctors at the practice say, while the listed price estimates are specific to the practice’s own rates rather than a snapshot of general rates throughout the field of plastic surgery, there are several things for individuals considering these treatments to keep in mind while researching their options. For example: at Florida Plastic Surgery Group, these types of procedures are customized for each patient, so the total price can vary. Additionally, other factors that are taken into account for the full cost of a specific treatment plan include:
- The extent and complexity of the procedure
- The particular techniques utilized
- Fees for the surgeon and costs associated with anesthesia and the operating facility
- Whether the treatment is a standalone procedure or other options are included in the overall treatment plan
- Post-surgical garments that may be necessary
The doctors note that the experience and credentials of the plastic surgeon, and even the geographic area of a practice, can also have an effect on the total cost. While the surgeons understand that the cost of plastic surgery is certainly an aspect of treatment that needs to be carefully considered, they explain that the most important thing for prospective patients is to ensure that the plastic surgeon they are researching is skilled, extensively trained, and has the experience necessary to perform their procedure safely and effectively. They also believe that patients should be provided with a full price estimate of the procedure(s), including all associated costs, before the treatment is performed so they can have a clear idea of what to expect. If patients at Florida Plastic Surgery Group decide during the initial consultation to go forward with treatment, a personalized treatment plan is developed and a total cost estimate is presented to them for review. A member of the plastic surgery team can go over all of the payment options available to them and answer any questions they may have. The doctors say they never want an individual’s personal financial situation to hinder their ability to achieve their cosmetic enhancement goals, which is why they work with reputable financing companies such as CareCredit®, ALPHAEON™ Credit, and PatientFi® that offer qualified applicants a selection of plans allowing them to pay for their treatment over time.
With the surging popularity of both surgical and non-surgical aesthetic enhancement, the doctors at Florida Plastic Surgery Group say individuals who are considering their options should never hesitate to ask questions of their prospective plastic surgeon and ensure they feel comfortable and confident in their care. They note that patients should review the doctor’s background and history, meet with the surgeon to evaluate their rapport, and be sure that he or she thoroughly addresses all questions and concerns. Ultimately, the Jacksonville plastic surgeons believe that any kind of cosmetic enhancement procedure involves a genuine partnership between doctor and patient, and individuals should feel confident that their doctor is committed to the absolute best in care.
