This probably goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: The cost of plastic surgery can be very steep. Even with advancements in technology, plastic surgery prices remain high, making it hard for the average person to afford the work they want done. This is especially true for weight loss surgeries, which tend to be the most expensive andmost invasive of all plastic surgery procedures—not only will you shell out tons of cash, but you’ll likely have to take time off from work for recovery too.

The Average Cost of Common Plastic Surgery Procedures

Well, exactly how much is plastic surgery? Let’s take a look at the prices of some of the more popular procedures.

These days, traditional breast augmentation costs over $6,500, while liposuction can set you back anywhere from $5,000 to $6,000 per area removed. A tummy tuck and thigh lift starts around $8,000 and $9,000, while a full body lift can run you over $15,000.

The average cost of plastic surgery is so high because of how invasive most of the procedures are. These treatments are performed by a surgeon and require you to undergo anesthesia. When you pay for plastic surgery, you’re paying for surgeon fees, operating room costs, anesthesia, post-op care and medication, and any and all subsequent followup appointments and maintenance. It’s no wonder plastic surgery prices are so high.

How to Avoid Exorbitant Plastic Surgery Costs

If you’re struggling with body insecurity but you don’t have the money or time it takes to get a traditional plastic surgery treatment, HD Body Sculpting might be an effective solution for you. Belle Medical’s body sculpting procedure is a noninvasive, nonsurgical method of removing stubborn, unwanted fat from problem areas such as the love handles, buttocks, stomach, thighs, and more. Body sculpting also allows for something called a Fat Transfer, in which you can transfer your own fat from one part of your body to another to achieve a natural breast or buttocks augmentation.

Because body sculpting is nonsurgical and noninvasive, it typically costs a fraction of what conventional plastic surgery would cost. The recovery time is as little as 24 hours, meaning you won’t have to take much time away from work, if any. In addition to being significantly cheaper, body sculpting is safer, and its method of breaking down and removing fat cells using ultrasound technology makes for a permanent weight loss solution that requires little maintenance, saving you even more money down the line. If you’re ready to experience the magic of an HD Body Sculpting and/or Fat Transfer procedure, make an appointment for a free consultation with Belle Medical. Our experienced specialists will work with you to find an effective, affordable solution for those hard-to-lose pounds and help you achieve the body of your dreams at a fraction of the cost of plastic surgery.
