How much does scar revision cost?
Cost is always a consideration in elective surgery. Prices for scar revision procedures can vary. A surgeon's cost for scar revision may vary based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used, as well as geographic location.
Many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans for scar revision, so be sure to ask.
Scar revision costs may include:
- Surgeon's fee
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Anesthesia fees
- Prescriptions for medication
- Post-surgery garments
- Medical tests
Most health insurance plans will not cover scar revision surgery, related complications or another surgery to revise the appearance of your scar. You must carefully review your health insurance policy.
Your satisfaction involves more than a fee. When choosing a plastic surgeon for scar revision 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.
