Is Plastic Surgery Surgery Less Expensive if You Are Having Multiple Procedures?

Apart from paying for the anesthesia once for both multiple procedures, can you get discount for having multiple procedures. For example, let's say you want a nose job but decide you want a chin job as well..can you get some sort of a package deal? Also, thank you so much for answering our questions it really helps..thank you.

Is Plastic Surgery Surgery Less Expensive if You Are Having Multiple Procedures?

Absolutely. In most cases, a multiple procedure discount is provided. This reflects that fact that multiple procedures are performed with a single anesthetic, a single procedure setup and your plastic surgeon can use their time more efficiently. This usually will translate into a savings for you. Another thing to consider is that combining procedures that have downtime means that you will only need a single recovery as opposed to having the procedures performed separately and missing more time away from work or social activities. I hope this information is helpful.

Multiple procedure discount.

Yes there is a discount for multiple procedures at our Institute since the time is shorter and we pass that savings on to the patient.

Thank you for the question. Practice will vary from one office to another when it comes to cost of surgery; in many practices, "secondary" procedures are discounted.  Best to address this question directly to your chosen plastic surgeon.
It is best to evaluate each patient's suitability for combination surgery on an individualized basis. During this consultation process, after a complete history and physical, the SAFETY of combining these surgical procedures becomes of paramount importance. Plastic surgeon, anesthesia provider, duration of surgery, surgery facility all important considerations. Your best bet: choose your plastic surgeon very carefully; everything else including good judgment/advice/planning, anesthesia provider and safe surgery facility will follow.  
Best wishes.

Cost of multiple procedures in plastic surgery

Usually, if more than one cosmetic procedure is performed during the same surgery, the cost of combined procedures is less than if the procedures are performed separately. This is true not only for the facility and anesthesia fees but also for the surgeons fees. The reason is that less time is involved on the part of the surgeon and his/her staff and often there is lower cost of surgical supplies if multiple procedures are performed at the same time. This cost savings can then be passed on to the patient. It can be a win - win situation for the patient and doctor from a cost standpoint. However, it is important that you are healthy enough to undergo a multi-procedure operation and that you are prepared for the recuperation. Additionally, you should discuss the safety level of having the procedures done at the same time.
