How much do procedures at Southern Surgical Arts cost?

At Southern Surgical Arts, we pride our practice on being transparent to patients and those looking to work with us. When attempting to research cosmetic procedures, you may come across some practices whose prices seem too good to be true. Many of these places advertise only their surgeons’ fees. This tactic is used to make it seem as though they offer significantly lower prices than their competitors. 

Plastic Surgery Cost

We offer price estimates for each of our surgical and non-surgical procedures. Each of our quoted prices include the surgeon’s fees, anesthesia, the facility fee, supplies, materials, and any follow-up visits for your selected procedure. While the estimates listed on our website are all-inclusive, the only way to guarantee any cost is to attend a complimentary, comprehensive consultation with one of our doctors. Any increase in costs will be explained to you in a manner that can be easily understood.

Our surgeons are not in the business of selling; they are well-skilled medical professionals who strive to assist you in obtaining and maintaining your aesthetic goals. By keeping their patients as their “why,” our doctors are sure to provide the utmost service and care to those interested in working with Southern Surgical Arts.
