COVID-19 Reopening Updates View Update Virtual Consultation

revision plastic surgery costRevision plastic surgery techniques tend to be more complicated than those used during the initial surgery because the surgeon must correct a problem and produce a cosmetic enhancement, which was the intended goal of the first surgery. Dr. Vincent Marin is a board-certified plastic surgeon in San Diego who has experience performing all revision plastic surgery procedures. In fact, several 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 to know what to expect when they seek treatment. Because revision plastic surgery procedures tend to be more complex and challenging 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 you undergo is cosmetic, 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 several 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 treatment cost for 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 associated with the card.
  • Financing: We accept CareCredit and other types of medical financing. These plans work similarly 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.

To find out how much your revision plastic surgery procedure will cost, contact Marin Aesthetics to schedule a consultation.

In light of the state wide restrictions on non-essential businesses to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are rescheduling all of our elective appointments until the global circumstances improve. Our necessary post-operative appointments will be made, as needed, to address immediate surgical concerns such as suture removal and acute postoperative issues. All non-acute follow up appointments, fillers and Botox will need to be postponed until after the quarantine period mid April. Our office will reach out to all patients who need to be rescheduled.

We will be offering new patient virtual consultations online and via Skype that can be scheduled through our website or by emailing Also, we will offer follow-up appointments in the same manner to help manage our patients’ concerns while still respecting the need for social distancing.

We appreciate all of your understanding during these difficult times for all of us.

Stay safe,
