I came across this article a while back that purports to catalog some of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures by price. Why? Because interest is at an all-time high, and trends such as male facial cosmetic surgery are cresting year to year. No wonder so many people hit the Web in search of reliable information about how much it costs to get their cosmetic issues resolved.
Laundry lists like these are fine if you want the view from 10,000 feet, but it’s important to remember as well that every physician has a different approach. In my own LA facial cosmetic surgery practice, prices are assigned based on a number of essential factors, including the type of procedure, desired outcome, number of staff needed and more.
It is important as well to remember that different doctors charge different amounts because of their own unique assets. I am proud to be a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon who has trained at a number of the world’s most respected institutions, and some of this experience is reflected in the rates I charge. That said, I try hard to keep every procedure reasonable and accessible to the patients; there’s simply no good reason why beauty and confidence should come at a premium.
