Costs of Cosmetic Surgery


Posted in "Secrets" of Cosmetic Surgery, Answers to your questions, Surgical Procedures, March 4th, 2013 | Posted by Dr. Kreidstein

Fees charged by different practices will vary widely, and not always for reasons of quality.  Even within a practice, the fee for a specific procedure will vary between patients.  Complexity and scale of procedures can vary widely between patients, and patient characteristics (e.g. health problems requiring hospital surgery) may influence the costs.  Also, the quote you receive at a consultation may be influenced by the availability of operating room time or how keen a practice is to develop their experience in a particular procedure.

Despite the above, the majority of patients who attend our practice receive quotes for cosmetic surgery (includes facility, anesthetist and surgeon fees) as follows:

Breast Augmentation: Saline Implant $6000, silicone gel implant $7000, anatomic gel implant $8000

Tummy Tuck: lower $3500, full $8000

Facelift: $8500

Rhinoplasty: $4000 to $7000

Eyelids: $2500 (4 lids $4500)

Liposuction: $1500 to $3000 per paired area

Brow lift: $3500

Labiaplasty: $3000 to $4000

Fat grafting: $1500 to $2500

Before you abandon the idea of investing in your self-improvement and instead blow your funds on a trip, consider carefully the cost of not having cosmetic surgery.

    Hello Dr. Kreidstein,
    I’m currently looking into a breast augmentation after nursing two children. I also need a small hernia repair which I was going to do at shouldice. My question is, is it possible to have these two procedures done together to help with the costs? I believe the hernia repair is covered under Ohip. I’m a 32 yr old women. 124lbs. Thank you.

      There are a number of options for combining these procedures, all of which are likely to save you time, money, multiple recovery periods, etc. Please call us to arrange a consultation.

    Hi dr I have a lipoma on the back of my neck and wanted to know if ohip covers the removal cost or if not how much is it?

      The issue of OHIP coverage is complex, but assuming there was no concern for disease and significant symptoms weren’t an issue, then a non-OHIP excision should be available for under $500.

    If you had surgery now and then became pregnant, your results could be compromised. It would be better to wait if a pregnancy is in your immediate plans.

    What is the approximate cost of brachioplasty at your clinic?

    • http://www.drkreidstein.com/ Dr. Michael Kreidstein

      Brachioplasty fees range from $4000 to $8000 depending on the need for liposuction and the amount of surgery that is necessary.

    Hello Doctor,
    I am a 28 years old mother of 3 ..i have always has uneven breast ever since I had my first baby but the difference between my breast is was not as bad as they are today.. there is about 2 1/2 cup size difference (left side is 34-36 c and right side is 34 a ) and I was wondering if you would know if getting a surgical procedure done to even out my breast was covered by OHIP. I really cannot stand looking at myself in front of the mirror without a shirt on. Thank you so much and hope to hear back from you.. Any advice would be greatly appreciated right about now.

    Thank You
    Kris

      We have had success in applications to OHIP where there is a large difference in size. Please ask your MD for a referral.

    We would like you to be at a stable weight before you undertake surgery. Wide fluctuations in weight make it difficult to give a cosmetic result that is durable, and you may be malnourished and vulnerable to healing problems.

    Hi Doctor Kreidstein. I have had a c-section and then gained a significant amount of weight and have lost the weight. I have a significant amount of hanging skin above the belly button, below the belly button and on the mons. My doctor believes I would qualify for an OHIP covered panniculectomy. Is that something that could be combined with a tummy tuck and pay the difference?

    • http://www.drkreidstein.com/ Dr. Michael Kreidstein

      Hi Lisa,
      That is a common scenario. Please obtain a letter of referral from your MD to document significant symptoms arising from the panniculus, and come In for a consultation.

    I had cancer surgery in 2002 and as a result I ended up with a hernia on my stomach. In 2004, I had another cancer surgery and the hernia was fixed but an excess amount of skin was a result. In 2007 after another surgery this skin was supposed to be removed but wasn’t. I was told by a doctor that it was fat. I lost 40 lbs and I am not overweight but there is still a skin protruding just above my waist and I can’t wear any clothing that clings since its noticeable. Prior to the hernia, I had a flat abdomen. Would OHIP pay to have this fixed?

      Unfortunately, surgery to improve cosmesis below the collarbone is not generally covered by OHIP. That said, we can make an application, and perhaps the cost of surgery will be acceptable to you even without OHIP coverage.
