There have been quite a few of you of late who have gotten in touch with us to ask about the average cost of blepharoplasty and today we are going to explore that as well as the cost of so other common cosmetic procedures which many people get . It is estimated that here in the US alone there is more than $16 billion spent on cosmetic procedures each and every year, and that is not including those who get treatment abroad, as you can see this is pretty big business. Here then is a quick round up of some of the most common procedures.
Blepharoplasty is a procedure which helps to remove saggy eye lids and deep set bags underneath the eyes, leaving the patient looking fresher and more youthful. The average cost of this procedures is $3,500 but that does not include costs such as the OR facility, medicines and anesthetics.
The most common procedure in the US is breast augmentation and there are over 290,000 Americans each year who have this work done. The average cost of this procedure is $3,719, and costs are still coming down as more and more people look to have this work completed.
The average cost off rhinoplasty, when done for cosmetic reasons is $5,409. This is one area of cosmetics where we have seen the price fall dramatically and what would once have costed upwards of $15,000, you can now count on a third of that price.
There are many methods by which liposuction is now performed which has a big bearing on the overall costs. On average however we see the costs associated with this on average as being around the $3,200 mark. Higher costs come when patients want to use newer treatment options such as laser lipo. There are over 235,000 liposuction procedures carried out each and every year.
A tummy tuck is an operation which sees the doctor cut skin away from the body which helps to remove any excess or saggy skin, usually following weight loss. There are over 123,000 procedures carried out each and every year and they come in at an average cost of $5,798. This is not a minor procedure and that is why the costs are higher than many other procedures on this list.
Buttock augmentation is one of the fastest procedures in the country at the moment, in terms of popularity and the average cost at the moment is $4,356. We can expect this price to fall ever so slightly as the demand for this procedure continues to increase.
There are many people who will look to go abroad in order to have work done and that is because of the lower costs which are associated with cosmetic surgery in some European nations and across the border in Mexico.
