Body lift cosmetic surgery procedure can dramatically improve the body contours in treated areas, and restore a firmer and more youthful looking skin. At the time of pre-op consultation, the surgeon will discuss various aspects of body lift with the patient, and will explain the costs involved.
Most patients may have to pay out of pocket for an elective procedure such as body lift. Therefore, it is important to get full clarity on costs before choosing the procedure. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides body lift and other cosmetic procedures to patients in Houston, Texas, and other cities and neighborhoods in this part of The Lone Star State.
Extent of Surgery
Body lift is a highly customizable plastic surgery procedure that can be tailored to meet the specific needs of a patient. The costs of surgery can vary according to the length and complexity of the surgery and the number of treatable areas involves. Body lift is commonly performed in the lower body areas, such as the waist, hips, buttocks, and thighs.
However, sometimes it may include both upper body lift and lower body lift procedures. Tummy tuck, breast lift and upper arm lift surgery are major upper body contouring procedures that may be combined with lower body lift. The cost of a combined surgery will be higher. Liposuction may sometimes be performed to reduce excess fat tissue in the targeted area, which can further add to the costs.
Body lift addresses multiple areas of the body in a single surgery. The overall procedure becomes more cost-effective as compared to a situation where each procedure such as thigh lift and buttock lift is performed individually at separate times.
The costs of anesthesia, surgical venue expenses, surgeon’s fee, and the time and costs involved in recovery will only be incurred once when body lift is performed as a single procedure. Therefore, while the absolute costs will increase, the cost-effectiveness will be much better in case of a combined body lift procedure.
Other Cost Factors
The geographical location of the practice will impact the average costs of a procedure such as body lift. The cost of living varies from one place to another, which will influence the costs of all types of goods and services, including cosmetic procedures. The fee of the surgeon can differ according to their skill, expertise and certifications.
Board certified plastic surgeons typically invest in the best quality standards and practices, adopt the latest technology and surgical techniques, pursue continuing education, and follow the current safety protocols. Body lift surgery may be performed at a hospital, surgical center or a private surgical suite. The costs and benefits in each case will vary.
Anesthesia may be performed by an anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist, and their fee will vary according to their qualifications. Outstanding and astute female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Hustak receives patients from Houston, Texas and nearby areas for body lift surgery.
