Cost Components in Plastic Surgery
The cost of plastic surgery in Virginia or Maryland may differ from the cost of the same procedure in Manhattan, NYC. This happens because the cost of living in each city and state may differ, and costs of all services, including cosmetic surgery, in that region may be influenced by the general cost of living index. Apart from geographical factors, there are several cost components of a plastic surgery procedure that will determine the cost of the procedure.
The fee of the cosmetic surgeon is a key factor that may impact the overall cost of a procedure. A skilled, experienced, and reputed surgeon may charge a higher fee because of higher demand for certain procedures from the patients. The costs of the surgical facility may vary depending on the quality of infrastructure, equipment, and technology, support of a professional staff team, and general services and comforts provided at the facility.
