Cost is always a factor in the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery, but the advice of leading Buckinghamshire plastic surgeon Mr Sudip Ghosh, it should not be the most important factor. Choosing a plastic surgeon because you know they have all the necessary qualifications and experience and you feel fully understand exactly what you are hoping to achieve from your procedure is the most crucial aspect.
At The Plastic Surgery Specialists, we do not quote prices on the website for the surgical and non-surgical procedures we offer because each is a bespoke, tailor-made treatment that can vary depending on the patient’s individual needs and expectations.
What makes up the cost of a cosmetic surgery procedure?
There are a number of components that make up the final price that you are quoted. The quote should cover the surgeon’s fees, anaesthetist’s fees and the costs of the clinic or hospital where the procedure is being performed.
Depending on the extent of the procedure, you may need to stay in hospital for a couple of nights, although now there are more and more procedures which can safely be performed as a day case.
A full and comprehensive aftercare package should also be included in the price and make sure you ask exactly what is and is not covered in the event of an emergency or in case there is need for a repeat procedure if you’re not happy with the results. If an implant or other device is used there may be a small adjustment to the price as they can vary.
Why do some cosmetic surgeons charge more than others?
There may be some differences in the prices you are quoted, depending on the experience and perceived skill of your surgeon. Location also plays a part, with London and the South-East being typically more expensive than other areas in the UK.
For your own peace of mind, it is imperative that your surgeon quotes you a final price that will cover all eventualities – Mr Sudip Ghosh at The Plastic Surgery Specialists always ensures that his Milton Keynes cosmetic surgery patients are aware of everything that is included before they make the decision to go ahead with surgery.
