Plastic surgery clinics at training programs offer discounts
Thank you for your question. Most hospitals that have training programs for plastic surgery residents and fellows have clinic programs with discounted fees. Th procedure is performed by a surgeon in training for plastic surgery working with an attending plastic surgeon. Try Lenox Hill, as already suggested, Manhattan Eye Ear and Throat Hospital and NYU-Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and Bellevue Hospital. Hope this helps.

Can get face lift at plastic surgery clinic of teaching hospital.
For example, we run a good cosmetic surgery clinic at Lenox Hill Hospital. It may cost you about $3000. First class work with a private surgeon would be at least three time that.
Teaching hospital discounts
Teaching hospitals discount the surgical fee but I think that you will find that there are many experienced plastic surgeons who are board certified and whose fees are comparable.
