Calf augmentation cosmetic surgery helps in adding contour and body to the lower legs. Your surgeon will discuss various aspects of the surgery during the initial consultation. They will also discuss estimated costs. Responsible cosmetic surgeons consider it a priority to help patients make a well-considered decision based on their budget and personal needs.
Calf augmentation may not be covered by your health insurance since it is usually an elective cosmetic procedure. You will have access to various financing options, though. These options can help you pay for the plastic surgery in convenient and affordable monthly installments.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides calf augmentation surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Extent of the Procedure Plays a Major Role
Calf augmentation surgery involves inserting silicone implants within the contours of your lower legs for enhancing their balance and appearance. Your surgeon may require sculpting the implant to match your body contour. You may be able to keep the costs down by having the procedure performed under local anesthesia and a mild intravenous sedative.
However, your surgeon will make the call whether to use local or general anesthesia. There will be an added fee of anesthesiologist or a registered nurse anesthetist in case you need monitored anesthesia care (MAC). General anesthesia is unavoidable if you are getting multiple procedures performed in conjunction, such as a thigh lift or getting dual layers of implants placed for more dramatic results.
It is important to note that combined procedures end up being more cost-effective in the long run since you don’t need to pay the surgery center costs, surgeon’s fee or anesthesiologist’s fee multiple times.
Cost also depends on the Surgeon’s Fee
Experienced and qualified plastic surgeons may charge more than less trained or new surgeons. Board certified plastic surgeons are usually recommended for any cosmetic surgery since they invest in cutting-edge surgical technology, adopt quality standards and continue pursuing higher education. They also tend to follow the latest safety protocols.
However, no reputable cosmetic surgeon will compromise on the quality of surgery or care to reduce the overhead cost. It is recommended by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) to choose a surgeon that can best accomplish your goals. Surgeon’s fee should not be a priority over your safety.
Location of the Practice Can Impact Overall Costs
Surgeries performed in metropolitan cities are costlier than the ones performed in sparsely populated interior towns. Real estate and other costs influence the cost of medical procedures. You should consider the difference in procedure costs at different locations and facilities before taking a decision.
Consider Financing Options
You should not be deterred from getting the calf augmentation surgery you want because of a shortage of ready funds. There are many financing options that can make it easy for you to pay for the procedure. You can easily acquire a loan from third party medical care financing companies at competitive rates.
