Plastic surgery always requires finding the right balance of value and quality. The most expensive surgeons may not be the most skilled, as they may just be in a more expensive market. More importantly, they may not be the right surgeon for you and your needs.

In contrast, the least expensive surgeon may not actually be the best value, as the work you receive may be subpar or even dangerous if they are charging so little because they are unqualified.

How do you find the balance? And at a time when so many people are carefully watching their budget, is it still attainable?

Least Expensive Plastic Surgery Procedures

There are several affordable body contouring procedures that can be financially within reach for many people who are considering a change.

One of these procedures, with a 2020 average cost of $4,516, is Breast Augmentation, which also happens to be one of the most popular surgical cosmetic treatments. Along with augmentation, Breast Lift is another option with an average for 2020 of $5,012. Both of these procedures are sought after and can provide an improved feminine profile and a boost of confidence.

Another low-cost option for female rejuvenation is Labiaplasty. With an average cost of $3,053, this delicate procedure can improve your intimacy and comfort.

For a male-specific surgery, Gynecomastia, or the correction of excess breast tissue, costs $4,239 on average and can provide a huge improvement in self-confidence for men.

With a little something for everyone, Liposuction is an extremely popular and versatile body contouring option that usually clocks in at about $3,637. Liposuction can sculpt and transform the abdomen, legs, arms, and many other areas.

Most “Worth It” Plastic Surgery Procedures

When it comes to value or a procedure being “worth it,” we come up with a slightly different list. This is another great indication that expense doesn’t always equal the true value of the results you’re getting.

At the top of the list is Gynecomastia, with a 99% RealSelf “Worth It” rating. Excess breast tissue can be a point of embarrassment for men who deal with it, and this straightforward surgery is often life-changing.

As one of the most popular and affordable surgeries, Breast Augmentation also ranks as one of the most satisfying cosmetic surgeries, with a “Worth It” rating on RealSelf of 97% among patients. One of the reasons that so many patients love their breast augmentation is because this procedure is so customizable, and with the right surgeon, they can achieve exactly the look they’re going for.

Tied at 96% are Tummy Tuck and the Mommy Makeover. A tummy tuck is another commonly requested procedure that may utilize both excess skin and fat removal for body contouring as well as liposuction. A Mommy Makeover often includes a Tummy Tuck along with possible Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast Reduction, Thigh Lift, or Body Lift.

As you can see, there is a lot of overlap when it comes to “worth it” procedures and crossover between affordability and value. So, what does this all mean for you?

Financing Your Plastic Surgery

When you’re confident and passionate that the plastic surgery you’re seeking will be worth it and make improvements in your overall quality of life, financing may be the optimal choice. At San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery, we offer flexible and sensible Financing Options that can make your dream a reality.

The Key to Affordable Plastic Surgery

Where do you see the true value? When it comes to aesthetics, it’s all about customization and your personal goals. For some, a luxury facial might give them a kick-start of confidence that lasts much longer than visible results on the skin. In contrast, pricey, full-body but poorly performed liposuction with complications could cause depression or discomfort.

This is why one of the most important parts of determining affordability and value is finding the right plastic surgeon who is board-certified, skilled, and qualified. The best option for you may not be the least expensive, but they may save you unnecessary added costs down the line. With the “wrong” practitioner, you could end up with disappointing results that require revision or dangerous complications that require hospital stays or ongoing treatment. While they might have cost less upfront, ultimately, they are more expensive financially as well as mentally taxing.

You can choose the right surgeon by asking for their specific qualifications, discussing how often they perform the type of surgery you’re seeking, and ensuring that you are fully satisfied with their answers about procedure, recovery support, and financing choices. Researching patient testimonials is also a great way to find the perfect plastic surgeon.
