My philosophy has always been to provide a comprehensive and fully integrated service for patients undergoing surgical procedures which encompasses the care you receive before, during, and after surgery. This philosophy reassures me that everything is being done to reduce your risk and make the surgical experience more pleasant. My fees reflect the comprehensive nature of the services we provide.

It is difficult to precisely predict for any given combination of surgical procedures requested the total fee in advance of the consultation and my recommendations. My thorough list of procedure fees has been generated by analyzing our experiences with thousands of patients and the common combination of procedures I perform.

This list is comprehensive and inclusive of the various services I provide through my facility for each procedure. It is meant to give those considering a surgical procedure a reasonable predictability of fees before the consultation.


Financing Options

For the convenience of our patients, we offer several payment options for our surgical and nonsurgical procedures and products. We accept all major credit cards and cashiers’ checks, and the Care Credit patient financing program.

Comprehensive Plastic Surgery Cost

The comprehensive fee includes the following*:

  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Board-certified anesthesiologists’ fee
  • Surgical Facility Usage Fee
  • Supplies and medications during surgery
  • Home health professional visit after surgery
  • VitaMedica surgical vitamin pack
  • 2 garments (if procedure requires)
  • Post-op follow up care for as long as necessary (or required) to ensure satisfactory recovery
  • Standard hemoglobin test and pregnancy tests conducted in my office
  • Post surgery care kit provided before surgery

Generally, any testing or medical care that is done outside my facility is not included in the comprehensive fee listed. The comprehensive fee does not include the following:

  • Any pre-op blood work or off-site testing, specialist consultations or evaluations that might be required to ascertain your health status for safely performing the requested procedures.
  • Any and all blood work or other offsite testing or treatment that might be required after surgery.
  • Any pathology required such as histology or cultures associated with surgery.
  • Facility and anesthesiologist fees performed offsite, i.e., not at The ACPS SurgiCentr

*Exparel, Prineo and other specific case by case special supplies are optional additional fees that are not included in the comprehensive fee for any procedures.

** The overnight stay is optional and not included in the comprehensive fee. It is an additional $1500.


Combining Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Procedures

When multiple procedures are performed, there is a fee reduction for the second, third, etc. procedures that are performed. Since my fees include the anesthesiologist’s fee, facility fee, and other services, a savings can be achieved when combining procedures. The average fee reduction is $1,000 – $2,000 per each additional procedure, depending on the type of procedure that is added.

My Professional Commitment to You

The results of cosmetic surgery are subjective; they are dependent upon perception, which can be influenced by generational attitudes, cultural ideals and trends, geography, the entertainment and fashion industry and, of course, individual perspective. Perfection is elusive from both the technical and artistic standpoints, and, therefore, should not be a goal of cosmetic surgery.

Yet, for most people, common elements of attractiveness can be defined:

  1. Relative naturalness
  2. Proportion and balance
  3. Reasonably good symmetry
  4. Smooth contour lines and transition
  5. Inconspicuous or concealed scars

From time to time, healing is not ideal and the overall outcome of surgery may be affected unfavorably. I am committed professionally and personally to achieving the best possible outcome with every procedure and in every patient.

On occasion, a secondary procedure may be suggested by me or requested by you in an effort to improve the overall result and our mutual satisfaction. Provided that, in my professional judgment, I can achieve improvement (and not potentially worsen the outcome) with a secondary revision, within the first year after your initial procedure, I will perform this secondary revision at no additional cost to you as an outpatient under local anesthesia. Should you prefer general anesthesia, you may be responsible for facility and anesthesiologists’ fees.
