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 Board Certified Plastic Surgeons (both locally and nationally) and are an excellent 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. When exploring local low price alternatives, remember that you will be looking in the mirror at your result for decades to come. Your bargain surgery elsewhere may turn out to be no bargain in the long run.
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). Prices you may find from internet searches are usually for surgeon's fee only and thus not comparable. 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 (silicone implant)- $8,500 to $9,000 depending upon implant and breast
Breast Augmentation Revision- $9,000 to $12,500 depending upon implant and breast

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.
