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.
  • Breast reduction: $300 to $14,000; average: $6,400.
  • CoolSculpting: $750 to $3,300; average: $1,800.
  • Eyelid surgery: $1, 100 to $6,500; average: $3,300.
  • A facelift: $7,500 to $15,00; average: $11,000.
  • Liposuction: $2,300 to $9,100; average: $5,200.
  • Rhinoplasty: $3,200 to $9,000; average: $6,100.
  • A tummy tuck: $4,000 to $12,000; average: $7,700.

Dr. Ali’s office also boasts the Botox Buddies Program, which saves a patient and a friend each $50 off the price.

The Bottom Line

“When it comes to deciding if plastic surgery is right for you, that’s ultimately a decision you need to make for yourself. However, I am happy to listen carefully to your desires to help improve your body image. Surgery is a wonderful option for many people, and I would be delighted to meet with you and determine how to meet your needs in the best way possible.”

Mommy Makeover plastic surgery

Mommy Makeover Plastic Surgery Procedures Giving Women a New Lease on Life

Bloomfield Hills, MI – When pregnancy and age have ravaged a woman’s body, she has two choices: She can lament the fact that her pre-baby figure is long gone every time she looks in the mirror, or she can opt for a Mommy Makeover procedure from a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon.

A Mommy Makeover is actually a combination of surgical procedures that address the woman’s breasts, midsection and other problem areas. Also referred to as postpartum body contouring, a Mommy Makeover combines the tummy tuck, breast lift, and other procedures to enhance a woman’s appearance.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 62% of mothers seek out plastic surgery at some point following childbirth in order to regain her pre-baby figure. This figure shows that women today are more concerned with looking good than ever before.

Top Michigan plastic surgeon Dr. M. Azhar Ali regularly performs Mommy Makeover treatments at Amae Plastic Surgery Center in Bloomfield Hills, Detroit, Michigan, also serving Clarkston, Richmond Hills and Rochester Hills.

The Hour-Detroit top doc 2016 award winner said, “Childbirth can wreak havoc on a woman’s body. To make matters worse, many times her metabolism will slow to a crawl, making diet and exercise almost useless in the fight against weight gain.”

Dr. Ali offers women a chance to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies with a bundle of procedures at a discount known as the Mommy Makeover.

Dr. Ali stresses that while the term “Mommy Makeover” may be a fairly recent phenomenon, the procedures involved have a long history and a successful track record.

A typical makeover might involve a tummy tuck and a breast procedure, such as a breast augmentation or enlargement, lift, or reduction. The treatment may also include liposuction of the legs, arms and midsection.

How does a woman know if she is a good candidate for surgery?

If pregnancy has negatively affected the size and/or shape of a woman’s breasts, if she dislikes the appearance of her sagging tummy or stretch marks, and if she has pockets of fat on her waist, arms, thighs or abdomen, she may be an excellent candidate for a Mommy Makeover procedure.

Women who have undergone Mommy Makeover procedures enjoy a more youthful bust and flatter tummy, not to mention clothes (and swimsuits) tend to fit better. Most importantly, the procedure can give the woman a significant boost in self-esteem, not to mention add to her quality of life.

All Mommy Makeover procedures begin with an initial consultation. During this hour-long meeting, Dr. Ali will ensure that the patient is of sound mind and judgement, and is realistic about all expectations.

“A Mommy Makeover can help a woman feel good about her body again,” Dr. Ali said. “The best part is that all of the procedures can be performed at the same time, saving mothers time and money while improving every area of her life.”
