It used to be that plastic surgery was one of those taboo topics that people rarely spoke about; today, it is becoming much more mainstream and more accepted. Rather than shying away and hiding the fact that you are having a procedure done, people are more likely to embrace it, discuss their plans, and then show off the results with pride and excitement.
Maybe you’ve been eyeing plastic surgery yourself, but you’re wondering if it’s something that would even be in your budget. To help shed a little light on where cost is concerned, let’s take a look at the most expensive plastic surgery procedures you can have.
Abdominoplasty – Tummy Tuck
Here’s a prevalent procedure. A tummy tuck works to remove excess fat from the abdominal area, lift the skin, and even repair the damage that has been done to the muscles. The result is a tight and toned-looking mid-section. In pricing, this particular procedure averages around $6,000 for the surgeon’s fee but will be more money depending on how extensive the work will be.
Rhytidectomy – Facelift
For many people, a facelift is a way to restore a more youthful look to their face and truly turn back the hands of the clock. It can offer rather dramatic results and do an excellent job repairing the typical damage that can happen to your skin and face over time. And because it is such a drastic procedure that is very involved, a facelift will cost around $15,000. This is the average price, so that it can be a bit lower or a bit higher depending on the doctor/clinic you use and how much work you want to have done.
If this is out of your budget, you could always look into a mini-facelift around $10,000. It will still provide you with dramatic results but at a lower price tag.
Everyone is familiar with breast enhancement surgery, but what about breast reduction? This is a popular option for those whose breasts are causing serious issues like shoulder, neck, and back pain. Another reason a person may opt for breast reduction surgery is to combat irritation and skin rashes happening under the breasts.
Breast reduction surgery is more than just altering a person’s looks; this particular surgery can actually enhance a person’s well-being, lifestyle, and confidence. As for pricing, the average surgeon fee is around $5,500, depending on several different factors.
Lower Body Lift
This procedure rivals the pricing of a facelift, and depending on the doctor, it may be similarly priced or even a bit more. A lower body lift is meant to remove the excess fat that you have on your lower body. It can also minimize the amount of cellulite you have. A lower body lift isn’t usually the first procedure people may think of. This one is really meant for those who won’t get enough results from liposuction.
As you can see by these plastic surgery procedures are far from budget-friendly and may require you to save up for a bit before going ahead and booking an appointment.
