Fees and Costs
Improving the Way You Look is VERY Affordable
Cosmetic surgery is an excellent investment in your well being and is no longer a luxury reserved only for the rich and famous. These days Cosmetic surgery done by competent ABPS-certified Plastic surgeons is very affordable.
The vast majority of the patients undergoing Cosmetic surgery are Middle Class and Working Class women and men who want to look and feel better and be more competitive in the workplace. 65% of those undergoing cosmetic surgery today have family incomes under $50,000. In fact, cosmetic surgery is one of the few medical specialties where the average bill has gone down. And while procedure fees may still seem high, the overall costs have fallen because many procedures formerly done in the hospital are now performed in same-day surgery centers. So now people from all kinds of income brackets, both male and female, who choose to have plastic surgery, can now afford it.
A lower price is not always a bargain, A higher price is not always a guarantee of a better surgeon
While the most expensive surgeon is not necessarily "the best", there may be significant compelling reasons for a surgeon to charge the lowest fees in town. If "shopping" by phone for the "best deal" in plastic surgery, beware of "low-balling". Make sure you know what you are quoted; a surgeon’s fee vs. the TOTAL fee for the procedure. The total fee is higher since it would include the surgeon’s fee, the operating room cost, the anesthesia fee and any special charges (such as implants or laser fees). In general, the costs for each procedure are a general range for the surgeon's fee, the hospital / surgical center facility fee, and the fee for the anesthetist or anesthesiologist. Be aware that operations whose extent and duration is based on the size of the patient (such as liposuction) cannot realistically be quoted on the phone without an examination (but they are...).

No TRUE professional gives away his or her services to all comers. Look around you and see who does so; Those who claim to do so may be personal injury lawyers who take the majority of your settlement, some insurance salesmen and a variety of home services salesmen (siding, lawn care etc); all with dubious credentials. Physicians offices that offer "freeconsultations" usually operate like a bargain basement sale and treat you like one of their shoppers. Oftentimes, the physician's credentials and reputation do not stand up to careful scrutiny and preclude him or, her from competing with other reputable surgeons in the community. The office staff is a true sales force and is often compensated on a percentage commission of the value of consultations (i.e. you) "converted" into (i.e. sold) surgical cases. The entire focus of the "consultation" visit to such offices is to minimize your interaction with the doctor, to gloss over any potential complications of the procedure you may be considering and to get you to sign up. Obviously, should you need more time with your surgeon afterwards, or should you encounter a complication, you will rapidly discover that your time with the same surgeon would be even more limited. After all, these practices operate on a volume NOT the quality of their care and surgical results.
WHY would you accept and believe a phone estimate promised by a builder who never saw your house? Why would you trust ANY fees promised to you on the phone by someone who has not even taken the time to personally see and examine you ?
Would there be more work involved ? Could there be a better procedure to accomplish what you wanted ? What kind of a professional treats all patients like interchangeable parts in a auto repair shop ?
While cost is important, it is NOT the most important factor in picking YOUR plastic surgeon.
Surgery on yourself is not the sort of purchase that should be decided primarily based on the lowest bid price. Do not regard it as any other commodity. Remember, this is not a car you are buying; this is your body. Go see SEVERAL plastic surgeons. Hear what they have to say and how they interact with you. Then, consider their demeanor, the way they interacted with you. In choosing your surgeon, you should be concerned primarily with his / her quality and only secondarily with cost. You owe it to yourself to carefully check your surgeon's credentials and reputation. It would be wise to pick someone who you feel listens to you and understands your concerns. Seeking consultations with several plastic surgeons is a small but smart investment in picking the right surgeon for you.
Financial considerations are important since the vast majority of Cosmetic Surgery procedures are not covered by insurance plans. In our commitment to make our cosmetic procedures fairly priced and very affordable we researched and set our fees to be extremely competitive, not only within our own metropolitan Memphis area, but also in comparison with fees charged elsewhere in the United States. This remains applicable even when travel and lodging expenses are added. Finally, there is a new and disturbing trend in Plastic Surgery- medical tourism. Many Americans intent on lowering the cost of their cosmetic surgery procedures have opted to leave the United States and have their procedures done abroad. The attraction of these “cosmetic surgery vacations” has been the combination of apparently discounted cosmetic surgery (when compared with prevailing costs in the largest American cities), with travel to exotic countries (such as India, Thailand, Argentina, Costa Rica, Brazil, or Malaysia). However, medical tourism is not risk-free. Most likely, your communications skills would be hampered by the language barrier, you do not know the surgeon, his/her training, or his staff. Is your chosen surgeon qualified? Are the medical facility and equipment safe? Although there are many qualified physicians practicing all over the world in excellent facilities, it can be difficult to verify the surgeon’s training, or the standards of medical facilities and equipment. Should the procedure encounter any complications, however minor, your vacation would be ruined and additional, unexpected costs will appear wiping any theoretical savings. All of this – thousands of miles from home without your friends or family. How will your post-operative care / follow-up and any complications be handled? Finally, although enticing, most vacation activities should be avoided after surgery, and a long return flight increases the risk of developing a pulmonary embolism and blood clots.

Cost of Cosmetic Surgery and Procedures
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the largest society of plastic surgeons in the world, keeps careful statistics on the cost of Plastic Surgery operations and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures throughout the US. Below you will find the 2014 average doctors' fees for the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures. (These fees do not include anesthesia and facility charges when performed in an outpatient facility or the hospital).
Average US Plastic surgeon charges for Operations 2014
Average US Plastic surgeon charges for Office Procedures 2014
Dr. Aldea's and Dr. Eby's professional fees are often significantly lower than all of these national fee averages and are researched to remain VERY competitive and a great value in the Memphis area
Since people naturally differ greatly in their weight and size, your actual TOTAL procedure cost would depend on: - the surgical facility utilized (some charge more than others for the same procedure), - the type of anesthesia used (some anesthetists and anesthesiologists charge more than others, too) and - the actual duration of your surgery.
Therefore, the cost of your procedure can only be estimated after a personal consultation and examination with Dr. Aldea or Dr. Eby. Unlike some other surgeons, we do not wish to lure in potential patients with baseless false promises of unrealistic low fees. For this reason, without an examination, we prefer not to publish our fee schedule on the web nor to provide surgical fee estimates on the phone. After your consultation and examination with either Dr. Aldea or Dr. Eby, you will be provided with a total fee estimate. Moreover, if you have more than one cosmetic procedure, your total charge would be further discounted to less than the sum of the surgeon’s fees for the individual procedures when done separately.
Generally, Dr. Aldea's and Dr. Eby's Fee would include:
Dr. Aldea's or Dr. Eby's surgical professional fee
Your initial pre-surgical Consultation (becomes free IF you have your surgery with us; Since its fee is fully deducted from the doctor’s surgical fee) - If needed, up to 3 pre-operative visits are included in this fee
Routine follow-up care after your cosmetic surgery and,
Breast Implants, if applicable
For clarity, in addition, the TOTAL estimated cost of your Surgery provided to you will also include :
An Anesthesia Fee estimate
A Surgical Facility Fee Estimate

But, when paid in much smaller convenient monthly payments the same procedure becomes extremely manageable. Compare such payments with the monthly costs of your gym membership, of your last vacation or your last car. But, in the long run, improving the way you look would probably mean much more to you.
