Classic1 is on a distinguished road



Default is $17,000 too much?

Hi everyone,
I'm back with another question and while some may not be able to help or offer an opinion I'm hoping someone can.

As mentioned in a previous forum I'm looking to do a BA with a lift and tummy tuck w/ lipo. I've been to 3 consultations thus far and all 3 are excellent but the work from the first surgeon sticks out the most in my mind.

He's really gifted and is asking for approx. $17k for all procedures (separate procedures were quoted @ $21k). I may not need a lift which may knock off $2-3k but he's still REALLY expensive.

My question is, how much is TOO MUCH to pay for all of these procedures??? I've read that as a patient I should eliminate the highest and the lowest estimates but I'd like feedback from those who have gone thru similar procedures.

Thanks in advance for any feedback/opinions.

I don't know if it is any help to you, but I am having all 3 of those proceedures done for just over $13,000 total, including everything.

There will always be doctors cheaper and more expensive... don't make your decisions on price alone

Utilizing price as your determining factor is a bad decision, as la_angel stated.

Whether the price is low (oh it's cheap) or high (must be a great surgeon) is not the way to decide.

I had a TT, lipo and fat transfer to the breasts and it was $18k. If I had implants rather than the fat transfer(a longer more difficult procedure), it would have been $16k. I did not have a lift.

I just had the lift with augmentation and a tummy tuck with overnight stay (no lipo) for just over $13,000 in Ohio.

I know there were a few docs that were cheaper, but this was the one I liked the most....and I felt the most comfortable with her.

Yes, omg! You should pay no more than $9,000 and that is for a lot of skin removal...i just re read..i meant for just tummy tuck. I paid $17,000 for tummy tuck, breast lift with augmentation, and inner thigh lipo.
