Cost is always a consideration in elective procedures or treatment. The cost for collagen filler treatments may vary based on the expertise and qualifications of the person performing the treatment, time and effort the procedure or treatment requires, as well as geographic office location. In 2009, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimated national surgeons' average fees were $480 to $510 for collagen filler treatment. Many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask. Additional fees may include:
- Surgical facility costs
- Anesthesia fees
- Prescriptions for medication
- Be sure to ask your surgeon about all costs involved in your procedure
Your satisfaction involves more than a fee
When choosing a plastic surgeon for collagen filler treatments, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her is just as important as the final cost of the procedure.
Most health insurance does not cover cosmetic surgery or its complications.
