Factors Affecting Cost
The cost of a body lift varies from patient to patient because every situation is different. However, there are certain factors that you can anticipate in the cost of this procedure. The bulk of the cost of a body lift can be attributed to three things: surgeon’s fees, facility fees, and anesthesia/anesthesiologist fees. Other costs may be involved such as the cost of lab work, or prescription medications and patients should take into account the time they will have to take off from work for recovery as well when considering cost.
The cost will depend greatly on your surgeon’s experience and qualifications as well as the area of the country where you have your surgery performed.
Below is a summary of factors involved in the cost of a body lift procedure.
- Plastic surgeon’s fees
- Hospital or facility fees
- Anesthesia and anesthesiologist fees
- Cost of lab work
- Cost of medications prescribed before and after surgery
- Post-surgical compression garments
- Cost of taking time off work
Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon about financing plans to help make the procedure more affordable for you.
