In a major plastic surgery procedure like breast implants, the cost should be secondary to other considerations while making a decision.
However, cost becomes a primary factor for many women as this surgery is elective and mostly not covered by health insurance. The breast surgeon will provide information on all facets of the procedure during the initial consultation.
Golden and prudent board certified plastic surgeons at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS) provide breast implant surgery to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other suburbs and cities in this part of the nation.
The fee charged by the surgeon is a significant part of the overall cost of a breast implant surgery. The fee varies depending on the qualifications and experience of the surgeon. Ideally, the patient should select a surgeon with whom she shares a good rapport, who has exemplary professional credentials, and a proven track record of successful breast implant surgeries.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), patients should choose the best surgeon for their requirements, and the fee should not be a primary factor in selecting a surgeon. Noteworthy and fabulous board certified plastic surgeons usually invest in excellent quality standards and best practices. They follow the required plastic surgery safety protocols to deliver predictable and natural looking results to their patients.
Expenses of Operating Venue
The venue could be a hospital, an accredited surgical center or private surgical suite. While the cost of a certified venue could be slightly higher than a non-certified one, it is essential to ensure that the center maintains strict quality and emergency protocols and employs well-trained staff.
In certain cases, the surgeon might recommend a local hospital as the operating venue. Again, hospital expenses are higher than other venues but they are usually well-equipped to deal with emergencies. Some surgeons may choose a private surgical suite to perform the surgery, which could be a more cost-effective option.
Dollar Amount and Quality Assessment
Patients must understand that cost is not the only indication of quality. Certain good plastic surgery practices provide lower costs for qualified and experienced surgeons compared to another more expensive practice. However, if the cost offered by a practice is unusually low, then the patient should proceed with caution.
If a practice offers abnormally low prices, some hidden costs might be imposed on the patient later, or the quality of the surgery may be sub-optimal. Patients must carefully evaluate all the factors, and understand who will perform the anesthesia, which venue will be provided for the surgery, and what kind of breast implants will be used in the surgery.
Every element in the surgery will impact the total surgery costs.
Not being able to pay the full price tag upfront for the breast implant surgery should not deter patients from receiving the benefits of the surgery. Patients can seek specialized loans from professional medical companies at low interest rates and reasonable monthly installments.
