How Much Does Plastic Surgery Cost in Albany, NY?

The cost of plastic surgery in Albany NY will depend on several factors since the price for a plastic surgery procedure is based on a number of fees. Firstly, there is the surgeon’s fee for a certain procedure– Dr. Kayastha’s fees for cosmetic surgery will depend on how long the procedure will take and how difficult the procedure is.

For example, breast augmentation and tummy tuck pricing will fall within a certain well-defined range but will vary from patient to patient. One patient’s anatomy may complicate the procedure, thereby increasing the surgeon’s fee to account for the increased difficulty. One patient may have a smaller tummy tuck, and another may have a significantly larger tummy tuck. Their pricing will reflect this since larger surgeries will take more time and resources.

The surgeon’s fee will also reflect the surgeon’s experience and expertise. Dr. Kayastha specializes in breast and body contouring procedures. His most common procedures include breast reductions, breast lifts, breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks, and mommy makeovers.

Additional Fees

Along with the surgeon’s fee, plastic surgery costs in Albany incur additional fees accounting for the resources used during the surgery. These are all broken down for you on the estimate that you receive after your consultation. Other fees include anesthesia fees, hospital fees, recovery room fees, overnight stay fees, and physician assistant fees:

  • Anesthesia Fee: Anesthesia fees are set by the anesthesia group and are based on the type and duration of anesthesia you require. Fees will vary for local, regional, and general anesthesia.
  • Hospital Fee: Hospital fees, sometimes called facility fees, are for use of the operating room and are determined by the hospital.
  • Recovery Room Fee: The recovery room fee covers the room used during your operation and in-office recovery and is set by the hospital.
  • Overnight Stay Fee: Patients who are kept overnight to reduce the risk of complications will incur a fee for the room and service provided as set by the hospital.
  • Physician Assistant Fee: The physician assistant fee is for the use of a PA and helps to decrease the overall time of your procedure.

Consider Quality Over Cost

The common saying “you get what you pay for” also generally holds for plastic surgery in Albany. Be careful if you are basing your decision about your plastic surgery on cost alone. While it is true that in rare cases the cheapest option may very well be fine, it usually is not. When considering the cost of surgery, consider the fact that if it does not come out correct you will have to pay to have it re-done or corrected by another surgeon. Corrective surgery would mean additional cost, recovery, and time away from work. By the time you get done paying for your original procedure and your second procedure, it will cost more than the more expensive original option.
