If you do a cosmetic surgery at the same time as an insurance approved surgery, you will receive a discount? The hospital and anesthesia fees will be much lower than doing the cosmetic procedure on its own.
We frequently perform combination procedures. In addition to saving money, combination procedures allow for combining the recovery times and spending less time away from work. The option to perform a combination procedure should be discussed with your surgeon. Not all surgeries can be combined. Your personal risks and the procedures desired will factor into the decision on whether to perform the procedures together. One common combination is a “Mommy makeover” where breast reduction surgery (often covered by insurance) and abdominal procedures (Tummy Tuck/liposuction) are done at the same time.
If you are wondering if you are a candidate to combine procedures, call to set up an appointment for a consultation so you can discuss your options.
