How much does body contouring cost?
The average cost of body contouring surgery can vary widely. A surgeon's cost for body contouring procedures may vary based on his or her experience, the type of procedure(s) used, as well as geographic office location.
Health insurance plans may not cover body contouring surgery or its complications, but many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.
Body contouring costs may include:
- Anesthesia fees
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Medical tests
- Post-surgery garments
- Prescriptions for medication
- Surgeon's fee
When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for body contouring surgery, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
