How Much Does Plastic Surgery Cost?

Bloomfield Hills, MI – Be it a friend, coworker, family member, or celebrity, most people know of someone who has had a tummy tuck, facelift, breast augmentation, or other procedure. Once reserved for the rich and famous, plastic surgery is much more available to the public today than ever before.

What are some common plastic surgeries, and just how much do they cost?

Surgeons today perform a vast amount of plastic surgeries. This broad scope encompasses everything from quick procedures like Botox injections to more complicated work like breast reconstruction. Then there are the “lifts” procedures: those for breasts, arms, butt, and thighs, all of which Detroit-area top surgeon Dr. Ali performs routinely. He is an expert at nearly two dozen different procedures and enjoys working with a variety of patients.

“When considering whether to undergo plastic surgery, there are many factors to take into account,” explains Dr. Ali. “Obviously, many people are concerned with the cost of each procedure, which can vary greatly. The price tag involves everything from the work being done to the surgeon’s qualifications to anesthesia to post-surgery medication and more.”

Cost for Breast Augmentation

Dr. Ali, who has completed more than 2,500 breast augmentation surgeries, gives an estimate. “The American Society of Plastic Surgeons puts the average procedure at about $3,700. However, this number does not include the actual operating room facilities, anesthesia, and several other costs. A better idea for the Detroit-area market is a price range from $3,700 to $8,500.” The complexity of work required, as well as whether patients prefer saline or silicone implants, factor into the final cost.

Average Prices for Other Procedures

For those uncertain about what surgery to pursue, Dr. Ali explains many of the common procedures he performs. Keeping in mind that each surgery has its own variables, the following list is a general guide to price ranges in the Detroit area:

  • Arm lift: $5,400 to $14,000; average: $9,800.
  • Botox: $200-$650; average: $375.
  • Brazilian butt lift: $4,500 to $10,500; average: $7,200.
