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.

Fees and Scheduling

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.

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

Collection Procedure

Pre-operative appointments are scheduled two weeks in advance of all procedures. 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 yourself may decide you will benefit from a revision procedure. In such case, there will be no additional surgical fee during the first 12 months after your operation. You will be responsible for facility and anesthesia fees for this procedure.

For all additional procedures, such as BOTOX®, Restylane®, minor procedures, laser treatments, and facial treatments, the fee will be collected on the day the procedure is performed.

Insurance Billing

Financing Options

We have determined that offering convenient payment alternatives is another way to make cosmetic surgery accessible to those who otherwise would not have the option. We are contracted with CareCredit® Patient Payment Plans for financing purposes. You can apply online or over the phone (800-365-8295). Please ask our staff for information if you are interested in this option.

The Stella Center requires a 24 hour notice for all cancellations. Our office will charge $50.00 for missed appointments and late cancellations. You will be billed directly by our office.

Appointments that are booked for more than 60 minutes will be charged a $50 deposit. The deposit will be forfeited if a 24 cancellation notice is not received, or if you do not show up for your appointment. For pre-paid appointments, $50 worth of credit will be deducted from your package.
