Arm lift plastic surgery (Brachioplasty)
The cost of your arm lift cosmetic surgery is a vital starting point because you may not get insurance coverage for this elective procedure. At the time of your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss various aspects of the surgery with you, including its estimated costs. Make sure to check any pre- and post-surgical costs as well so that you have a clear idea of how much you will have to pay for your arm lift surgery.
Feel free to ask about the payment terms and any possible financing options that your surgeon’s office may be able to assist you with. Make a judicious decision after considering your cosmetic goals and your budget. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides arm lift surgery to patients in Houston, Texas and surrounding locations.
Factors Involved in Cost Determination
The cost of arm lift plastic surgery may differ between two surgical practices and sometimes even between two patients at the same practice. The following factors will influence the cost of the procedure:
Arm Lift Technique
The extent and complexity of your arm lift surgery will make a difference to your costs of procedure. A standard or extended brachiolplasty is likely to cost more than a mini or partial arm lift.
Costs of cosmetic procedures can vary from one state to another and also between two cities. Your arm lift may cost relatively more if the area where your practice is located has a higher cost of living.
Choice of Surgical Venue
As an outpatient surgery, your arm lift may be performed at a hospital or an accredited surgery center. Hospital costs will usually be the highest, but you can get equally good facilities at a reputable surgery center. In some cases, the surgeon may have their own private surgical suite where they perform procedures such as arm lift.
Your plastic surgeon’s fee may depend on their skills and experience. It is prudent to work with a board certified plastic surgeon because they will typically invest in the best medical practices and highest quality standards, adopt cutting edge surgical techniques and technology, and follow the current safety protocols.
Many patients choose to combine their arm lift cosmetic surgery with another surgical or non-surgical procedure. You will have to pay separately for these additional procedures. However, your surgeon may be able to offer you a special rebate or a package rate for a combined procedure.
Some surgeons may provide in-house financing and convenient repayment plans, which could have low or no interest rates. If you make the full payment upfront without using financing, you might be able to get some discount. You should explore these options with your surgeon’s office at the outset.
In addition, you can get your arm lift surgery financed from a third party lender. While banks and other financial institutions are a prudent option, you should check with specialist medical care financing companies that offer competitive loans for non-covered medical and surgical procedures.
