In the past, there was a common misconception that plastic surgery was only for the wealthy. Thankfully, this is no longer the case. However, potential surgical costs are still a common concern among patients that I speak with here at my office. Especially now in a time of economic uncertainty. So today, I wanted to discuss how I help my patients cut back on their surgical costs by offering in-office cosmetic surgery procedures.
Part of the reason that plastic surgery can be expensive in some cases is the additional fees that come with having a procedure performed in a hospital or specialized surgery center. These costs may include fees for the operating rooms, anesthesia fees, medications, post-surgical care, and more. By undergoing your cosmetic procedure here in our office instead, my patients are able to avoid several of these fees without sacrificing anything in regard to quality or safety standards. I am able to offer the Pro-Nox™ anesthesia system, which uses a mixture of 50% oxygen and nitrous oxide to provide immediate relief for surgery-related pain and anxiety.
Many of the most popular cosmetic surgery and nonsurgical procedures that I perform are able to be performed right here from the comfort of my office. This includes facial procedures like eyelid surgery, as well as my signature croton oil peel for facial rejuvenation. I also perform male breast reduction surgery in-office as an option if the patient is a candidate to help men who experience gynecomastia (male breast enlargement).
I always try to do what I can to alleviate plastic surgery costs for my patients, whether their procedure is being performed in-office or not. For example, I am proud to offer complimentary plastic surgery consultation appointments for all new and returning patients. Additionally, online plastic surgery consultations are also available for patients who prefer the ease and convenience of being able to participate in their consultations from the comfort of their own homes. Additionally, I provide plastic surgery financing options like CareCredit® to help qualified/approved patients manage their financial responsibility after their procedure.
It’s important to me that plastic surgery be as inclusive and available to prospective patients as possible. This is why my staff and I take so much pride in being there to accommodate our patients through every step of their plastic surgery journey.
