Cosmetic Procedure Pricing
It is difficult to give exact cosmetic procedure pricing without examining the patient and assessing desired goals. It is certainly reasonable, however, to know what cost range a procedure might be before scheduling a consult. Dr. Wigod’s fees are similar to other area surgeons and are a good value for the service provided. When considering travel costs, time off work, a surgeon with no local reputation, and no one near to care for you in case of problems, it really does not make sense to travel out of state in search of a bargain. Your bargain surgery may turn out to be no bargain at all.
Below are listed commonly requested cosmetic procedures with a price range. Prices include Surgeon’s fee, Anesthesia fee, Operating Room (Meadow Lake Surgery Center – Dr. Wigod’s accredited on site OR) fee and materials (implants). Procedures that may only be performed in a hospital setting (not presented below) will have a Surgeon’s fee only quote as well as an estimated quote on what the hospital and anesthesia group will likely charge for the expected anesthesia and OR time.
Breast Augmentation- $6000 to $7500 depending upon implant and breast type
Breast Augmentation Revision- $3500 to $9500
Breast Lift (mastopexy)- $6500 to $8500
Breast Reduction (not covered by insurance)- $6500 to $8500
Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)- $6500 to $9500
Thigh Lift- $6500 to $9500
Facelift- $5000 to $12000
Blepharoplasty (upper or lower eyelid lift)- $3000 to $6000
Rhinoplasty (nose surgery)- $4000 to $8500
Chin Augmentation- $4000 to $6000
Earlobe Repair (office procedure)- $500 to $1500
The fees provided are estimates only, but a firm quote may be provided after consultation. Quotes may be more or less than the presented range and are based on procedure difficulty and time required. One big advantage to scheduling your surgery at Meadow Lake Surgery Center is that, except in unforeseen circumstances, you should have no further costs. When scheduling at a facility not controlled by the surgeon, the hospital and anesthetist may bill the patient more if greater time is spent during the procedure than estimated. There may also be various billing errors along with stressful efforts required to resolve them. Global quotes provided by Dr. Wigod avoid these problems.
