Revision Plastic Surgery Costs

Revision plastic surgery techniques tend to be more complicated than those used during the initial surgery because the surgeon must correct a problem in addition to producing a cosmetic enhancement, which was the intended goal of the first surgery. Dr. Vincent Marin is a board certified plastic surgeon in San Diego that has experience performing all types of revision plastic surgery procedures. In fact, a number of patients who wish to correct issues from their previous surgery come to Dr. Marin. Problems may arise due to an inexperienced surgeon performing the primary surgery, the patient failing to follow pre- and post-operative instructions, and surgical complications.

However, many patients are concerned about the costs of revision plastic surgery. After all, these patients have already paid for plastic surgery in the past, and they want to be sure that the investment is well worth it. Dr. Marin has provided the cost range of plastic surgery procedures so patients know what to expect when they seek treatment. Because revision plastic surgery procedures tend to be more complex and difficult than the primary surgery, the price of revision plastic surgery is likely to be at the higher end of the range.

Will Health Insurance Cover the Cost of Revision Plastic Surgery?

In most cases, health insurance will not cover the cost of revision plastic surgery. If the surgery that you undergo is cosmetic in nature, it is unlikely that your plan will cover it. Health insurance will cover the cost of surgery if it is performed to provide a medical benefit.

Payment Options

Revision plastic surgery patients have a number of payment options available to them, including:

  • Cash or checks: At Marin Aesthetics, we accept cash and checks as payment. This option is ideal for patients because it does not require a loan and interest rates.
  • Credit cards: If you wish to pay for the cost of treatment over the course of a few months, you can put the cost of treatment on a personal credit card. We accept all major credit cards. If you elect to put the cost of treatment on a credit card, be sure to educate yourself about the interest rate and any late fee penalties that may be associated with the card.
  • Financing: We accept CareCredit and other types of medical financing. These plans work similar to credit cards. The financing company will pay for treatment, and then the patient makes monthly payments to the financing company. Be sure to choose a plan that offers a low interest rate.
