Fees, Financing & Insurance

Plastic surgery is a financial investment. We believe in fully informing our patients of their financial responsibility prior to scheduling any procedures. You will be given a detailed financial quote for any procedures you may be interested in at the time of your consultation visit. This quote is guaranteed for 6 months from the time it was given to you. For the surgery, it will include Surgical Fee, Facility Fee and Anesthesia Fee, as well as any implant fee that may apply. It includes all pre-operative care, surgical procedure, and all post-operative office visits related to this procedure.

Consultation Fee

Our Cosmetic Consultation fee is $50.00, and our Rhinoplasty Consultation fee is $75.00. Fees for consultations and services are due on the date of service.

Payment Procedure for Surgery

Scheduling a surgical procedure will require a nonrefundable deposit of $500. Full payment for surgery is due three weeks prior to the procedure date.

Pre-operative appointments are scheduled three weeks in advance of all procedures. All surgical fees are collected at the time of this appointment. Additional surgical facility fees and anesthesia fees may apply. These fees are based on the estimated duration for your procedure and will be collected by the appropriate facility administrators. The patient will be provided with the name and phone number of the financial representative of the hospital facility. We do our best to adhere to the estimated time, however, occasionally the surgeon might determine that additional refinements need to be performed in the best interests of the patients, or unexpected complications need to be treated. In this rare case the procedure may run overtime and additional fees for facility and anesthesia may apply and will be billed separately by these providers. The surgical fee will not be affected by additional time.

Occasionally, in the course of post-operative care, the surgeon and you may decide you will benefit from a revision procedure. In such case, you will be responsible for additional fees for this procedure.

Payment Procedure for Non-Surgical Treatments

For all non-surgical procedures, such as injectables, laser treatments, and facial treatments, the fee will be collected on the day the procedure is performed, prior to the procedure.
