Breast Reduction Surgery Cost
Breast Reduction Surgery Cost
As with all forms of cosmetic surgery, the public is always very interested to know what
is the surgery cost. The same applies to the surgery cost of breast reduction and
liposuction which often is a medical procedure.
This means, as opposed to other forms of surgery that have a cosmetic basis, in some cases, Medicare and private insurance can contribute to the costs of breast reduction. This is an issue that should be discussed the doctor at the consultation.
Breast reduction surgery cost do vary between $4,000 and $8,000. The surgery cost vary depending on the size of the breast reduction and also the method used. There are 2 types of breast reductions, one being mammoplasty where the skin is actually cut out and the area is closed with sutures. This leads to a scar that surrounds the nipple and looks like an inverted ‘T’ as it extends down to the base of the breast. The other option is liposuction. Dr. Lanzer helped pioneer and develop this procedure over the last 15 years. The advantage is that there are no long scars, rather a few small nicks. The costs vary with breast reduction depending on if the procedure is done under local anaesthetic or is it general anaesthetic.
Female breast Tumescent liposuction may produce both a significant breast reduction and a moderate but pleasing breast lift. The breast reduction result may be minimal postoperative pain, rapid postoperative recovery, rapid return to normal activities, and virtually no scarring. Not only may liposuction reduce the female breast by more than 50% in size, the breasts are also lifted to a significant degree in proportion to the body. This breast lift outcome of the reduced weight of the breast, which allows the breasts’ natural elastic properties to contract to smaller size and produce elevation of the breast. The breasts do not change shape after tumescent liposuction, they simply become smaller and somewhat elevated. After liposuction, the breast’s shape is simply a smaller version of the shape before liposuction.
Most surgeons will require payment upfront for breast reduction or any cosmetic surgical procedure. Generally, the reason for this is that patients should be prepared to pay the out-of-pocket expenses and not have to be involved in any further financial discussions once the procedure has been performed. There is always a question if it is worth the money. Dr. Lanzer and plastic or cosmetic surgeon cannot really make that decision for a patient. Ultimately, the patient himself has to decide if the surgery cost is justified by the outcome. This is where it is extremely important in cosmetic surgery that the patients have a good understanding of what they’ll obtain so that they can pre-operatively, that is before surgery, decide if the cost that they are going to spend is going to be worth the end result. There would be nothing worse than a patient having a procedure and spending a lot of money and not getting the result that they envisaged.

Borrowing Money to cover Cosmetic Surgery Cost
It has become very popular in the recent years for many people, both men and women, to seek cosmetic surgery, ie Breast Reduction vi a Liposuction Melbourne . It is however expensive and is usually not covered by insurance. Cosmetic surgery, though may be deemed not a necessity by most, it is considered quite essential for many others. People who often feel self-conscious as a result of a defect or imperfection somewhere on their body or from extra fat that has accumulated over the years or simply from wrinkles, skin sagging, and frown lines can feel so invigorated after undergoing cosmetic surgery with a Dermatologic surgeon. The results can be amazing and people feel so much better about themselves and their looks, which leads to an overall healthier emotional state of well-being and more positive inter-personal relationships. However, due to the high surgery cost, many people do not have the sufficient resources to pay for it and think they cannot attain their desires in this area since they cannot afford it. The good news is that there are many viable solutions for overcoming this hurdle.
Dr Lanzer is not that keen about borrowing for cosmetic procedures but the reality is that it is done often.
One option is to get a loan via a cosmetic surgery financing company. These companies will assist you in getting a bank loan specifically for cosmetic surgery. The process is not too complicated and begins by filling out an application with much personal information in addition to providing a credit report. When filling out the application form, be sure to answer carefully, using the right choice of words that would be to your benefit. Taking all your information into consideration and the type of surgery you are interested in, along with your credit score, the bank will offer you a loan of a specific figure with interest. The rate of interest varies from person to person based on the situation and ranges from around 6% to 28% with the average being around 12-13%. Loans can even be arranged for people who don’t have such a great credit history. This type of loan is referred to as an unsecured loan since there is nothing for the bank to repossess should the borrower be unable to repay the loan. As such, interest rates will often be higher than on other types of loans.
Another possibility for Breast Reduction via Liposuction is to pay for the cosmetic surgery with a credit card. This can be done using a regular credit card that has a low APR rate which will keep the interest down over the time that it takes to pay. Alternatively is a healthcare/medical credit card. Credit cards like these are advantageous since they are only used for medical expenses and usually have decent interest rates and payment plans. Be sure to keep in mind that just as when applying/using any credit card, the fine details have to be reviewed so you don’t mess yourself over with a hike in the rate of interest or a super high APR if you’ve missed a payment, etc. There are loads credit card companies out there who are offering new cards and options and many have a good promotional start-up rate. Take your time to investigate the many choices.
Both breast reduction and breast lift can be performed by tumescent liposuction. Liposuction reduces breast size in direct proportion to the volume of fatty tissue removed. Liposuction reduces the weight of the breast allowing the natural elastic tissue in the breast to retract which produces a visible breast lift.
In America another option is to take a 401(k) loan. If you have you have a 401(k) plan set up through your work, you are usually allowed to borrow up to half of your current account balance and re-pay the loan in instalments which are deducted from your monthly pay check. This option has 2 benefits: a loan of this nature does not affect your credit score as other loans do and you will be paying interest on the loan to yourself. However there are 2 other points to keep in mind: withdrawal from a 401(k) plan necessitates additional tax payments and complications can arise if you leave the place of employment before you finish paying up the loan.
With these options in mind, it is evident that one can realise his or her dreams in obtaining the cosmetic surgery of choice. After meeting with your surgeon and getting a price quote consider and research the possibilities listed above and see which once works best for you. Before you know it, you’ll be looking the best you can and feeling great about yourself without making too large a hole your wallet.
