Cheek augmentation plastic surgery can help add definition and fullness to poorly defined or depleted cheeks. Your plastic surgeon will inform you about various aspects of cheek implant surgery during pre-operative consultation. They will talk about estimated costs as well.
The overall procedure is more cost-effective when cheek implant surgery is performed along with other facial plastic surgery rather than as a standalone surgery. Various plastic surgery financing options can be availed by patients making the cheek implant procedure more affordable.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides cheek implants surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding communities.
Placement of pre-made implants is involved in cheek augmentation surgery. This can be silicone or any other substance. The implants may need to be sculpted by the surgeon before insertion to suit the unique facial structure of the patient. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia using intravenous sedation. This allows patients to remain comfortable and helps in avoiding the costs associated with general anesthesia.
Monitored anesthesia care (MAC) may be employed by the surgeon if the cheek implant surgery is being performed along with another procedure. This will incur charges of registered nurse anesthetist or an anesthesiologist. The surgeon will perform cheek augmentation with a facelift, eyelift, or another surgery if necessary. This will add to the overall monetary amount as well.
Plastic surgeons that are highly experienced and qualified may charge a higher fee as compared to less experienced surgeons performing the cosmetic surgery. Board certified plastic surgeons invest in state-of-the-art technology, cutting-edge surgical techniques, and adopt quality standards and best practices. They also pursue ongoing education and follow the latest safety protocols.
Board certified plastic surgeons don’t compromise on the care quality to reduce costs. Patients should find the best surgeon regardless of the fees as per the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
The cost of goods and services in metropolitan cities tends to be higher as compared to the cost of living in sparsely populated or interior towns. Real estate costs and the cost of living can have a significant impact on the cost of goods and services. Patients need to understand that the variations in cost in respect to the cost of cheek augmentation surgery may differ as per geographical locations.
Cheek implant cosmetic surgery cost is not covered by insurance since it is an elective procedure for aesthetic enhancement. However, your insurance carrier may cover procedural cost if it is performed as part of a reconstructive plastic surgery or after disease-related facial tissue atrophy. You should speak with the insurance company before getting the surgery performed.
Patients should not be deterred from having a cheek implant surgery performed because of lack of liquid funds or credit history. There are several medical care financing firms that can offer loans at competitive interest rates and helpful repayment terms. Patients can speak with the surgeon’s team about these options.
