As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Seify will discuss various aspects of butt lift surgery during the initial consultation, including its cost aspects. His goal at the initial meeting is to help patients make informed choices to match with their aesthetic goals and financial budget.
Factors that can Influence the Cost
The cost of a butt lift procedure may differ from one practice to another or even from one patient to another at the same practice. Several factors may impact the overall cost of the procedure as follows:
The cost of living index in each city or state can vary, which will have an impact on the average cost of most types of products and services in a particular region, including plastic surgery services. For instance, the cost of butt lift in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA may not be the same as the cost in, say, Tennessee.
Fee Charged by the Surgeon
The fee charged by a plastic surgeon to perform a butt lift procedure may vary according to their qualifications, experience and recognition in the field of body lift procedures. As per the guidelines of the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS), patients should choose the right surgeon for their needs, and view the surgeon’s fee only as a secondary consideration.
Surgical Facility and Anesthesia Costs
If the butt lift cosmetic surgery is performed under general anesthesia, the fee charged by the anesthesiologist must be considered. This fee may depend on the skills and experience of the anesthesiologist. The costs of the operating room may also depend on the kind of comforts, services, technologies, and experienced staff is provided at a particular facility.
Average Cost of Procedure
The average cost of a butt lift procedure in the United States may range from $4,000 to $10,000. Such wide variation in cost exists due to several cost factors involved. The extent and complexity of a particular surgery will also impact the actual cost of the procedure.
If the butt lift procedure is combined with another procedure for more comprehensive outcomes, the cost may go up. The plastic surgeon will discuss the treatment options along with their expected costs at the time of initial consultation with the patient.
Insurance and Financing
As an aesthetic procedure, the cost of butt lift surgery is not likely to be covered under the patient’s health plan. However, patients should explore their financing options to suit their needs. Financing may be obtained through banks and other financial institutions, medical care finance companies, or even through friends and acquaintances as the case may be.
