Tips For Saving on Cosmetic Surgery Prices

The prices for cosmetic surgery procedures vary due to different factors. The factors which can affect cosmetic surgery prices are the surgeon’s fees, the area where surgery will take place, and the cosmetic procedure itself. If you want to have a cosmetic procedure done but are at a loss of the typical prices, you can benefit a lot from the paragraphs to follow.

The most common concern of those who want to get plastic surgery is the price. Of course, the well being of a person comes first but even if a healthy person wants to have cosmetic surgery done, he just can’t because of the high cosmetic surgery prices.

It is undeniable that this indeed is a problem for most people. The prices for cosmetic surgery are sky-rocket high that only those who can afford it can benefit from it.

For example, a simple breast augmentation procedure can cost at least $3000 to as much as $5000. Breast reduction, on the other hand, has a higher price tag at $5000 – $10000 per procedure. Implant revisions can cost you from $4000 to $6000.

Facial cosmetic procedures are generally cheaper than all other cosmetic surgery procedures because the areas of concern are smaller. A brow lift, for example, can cost about $3000 per procedure. Furthermore, eyelid surgery costs a hefty $4000.

A face lift is tagged at $6000 per procedure while a neck lift can range from $2000 to $5000. The most basic lip augmentation can cost $300 but it can balloon up to $5000 for more complicated lip procedures. A nose lifthas a price tag of $5000 while an otoplasty can cost $3000 – $5000.

For cosmetic procedures to be done on the body, you should prepare an amount from $2000 – $17000 depending on your desired cosmetic procedure. A liposuction procedure has a price which can cost from $1500 to $8000 varying according to the part to be worked on. A tummy tuck can cost $3000 to over $10000 while a total body lift costs as much as $17000.

With these figures, no doubt only those who have the money can have these procedures done. This is the reason why the people who want to get cosmetic procedures done often get miserable because it will take years for them to save up for a particular procedure. However, there are ways which can be done to reduce the amount of plastic surgery prices.

To do this, you can consult a cosmetic surgeon if it is okay to have different procedures done at one time. The price of getting cosmetic surgery will be lessened when you do this because you can get a discount. And you only have to experience the pain once for all the procedures unlike when you have each one done separately at a different time.

You can also take advantage of the medical tourism other countries offer. Medical tourism is a term to describe the country’s attraction of cheap yet reliable medical services. And even if you have to fly to a particular country, the overall price for your cosmetic surgery procedure will still be cheaper.

Lastly, you can join a reality TV show which needs contestants to undergo a life changing cosmetic surgery procedure. This may be difficult to do but you can certainly save on surgery prices because the program’s producers and sponsors will shoulder all the expenses of your cosmetic surgery. It might be hard to get selected during an audition but at least give it a try. Who knows you might be the next cosmetic surgery beauty icon?
