How Much Does Plastic Surgery Cost?
Plastic surgery is one area where shopping for the best price is not recommended. Price should not be a consideration in your decision whether to have plastic surgery or not, because you have only one body, and no amount of savings should let you jeopardize your health or appearance by working with a cut-rate surgeon whose other qualities give you pause.
However, cost is an important consideration in deciding whether to have plastic surgery or in deciding which procedure you should choose.
Can You Afford Plastic Surgery?
At Gayoso Plastic Surgery, we work hard to keep our fees competitive with other practices in the area. Despite our advice, we do know that cost can be a decider for some people, and we would rather not have anyone get inferior care just because it is cheaper.
Despite our best efforts, plastic surgery can be expensive, and before deciding to commit to a procedure it is important to honestly evaluate your finances to ensure that your plastic surgery will not put an undue burden on your personal finances. It is for this reason that your consultation with St Petersburg plastic surgeon, Dr. Antonio J. Gayoso will be followed by a consultation with our patient coordinator, who will talk to you about the cost of the procedure and give you some financial counseling on how to fit the cost into your budget. She will also talk to you about our financing options.

Value in Plastic Surgery
One place where price does become an issue is in deciding between different procedures. However, it is important to take into account not just the cost, but also the value you get from different procedures. For example, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections may seem like a bargain compared to a browlift, but when you consider that the browlift will give you wider-reaching results as well as results that will last for years, as opposed to months for BOTOX® injections, the browlift may be the better value, especially when financing may make your individual payments comparable to BOTOX® retreatments. On the other hand, if you don’t need the full range of results that a browlift provides, BOTOX® may actually be the better value for you.
During your consultation, Dr. Gayoso will address the value of various procedures so that you can make a fully informed decision about which is right for you. You will be given the actual cost of your procedure including the surgical center fees, anesthesia fees, and other associated costs before you make a decision so that you can make it with confidence.
