How much does cosmetic surgery cost?

Cosmetic surgery is cheaper than it used to be and has become affordable for a great many people.

However, prices vary according to the procedure. The more complicated and extensive the procedure the more expensive it is likely to be. Many sites do not list prices on their site as they state that each procedure, surgeon and hospital is different and will, of course, charge different prices.

One of the most common questions when it comes to cosmetic surgery is, what is the price? how much does it cost? why are some clinics cheaper than others?

The overall cost of any cosmetic surgery procedure ultimately depends on a number of different factors including but not limited to:

  • The experience of the surgeon
  • The Location of the Clinic
  • The aftercare package that you get
  • The type of procedure you are having
  • The type or quality of materials being used (eg implant type)
  • The number of days in hospital required

To get an idea of the cost of your cosmetic surgery it is better to arrange a free, no-obligation consultation with a surgeon in which you will be given a quote. This exact quote should include surgeon’s fees, anaesthetist’s fees, clinic/hospital care and aftercare. This means you will know exactly what you are paying for.

As a rough guide though, you are looking at paying £3,500 to £5,000 for breast augmentation; £3,000 to £4,000 for rhinoplasty and £2,800 to £3,500 for blepharoplasty.

In respect of paying for your surgery you have several options. You can either pay for it yourself or you can take out a loan to cover the cost. The loan can either be a personal loan from your local bank or building society or obtained through a finance scheme.

Many cosmetic surgery providers will operate a finance scheme which enables you to take out a loan to cover the cost of your treatment. Another option is a specialist medical loans provider.

If you have private health insurance then note that cosmetic surgery usually appears on their list of ‘exclusions’. They will only pay out for treatment which is considered a ‘medical necessity’.
