Whenever people are thinking about getting a full body lift, cost is always important and will more or less influence their decisions. The fact of matter is that prices for body lifts vary immensely. Much of the variance in price is due to the geographic locations of plastic surgery centers and the skill and experience of plastic surgeons.
These additional factors may also play a big role in the total cost of a body lift procedure: surgeon's fee, surgical facility fees, anesthesia fees, anesthesiologist's fee, prescriptions for medications, medical tests, and post surgery garments.
While people may be tempted to choose a surgeon based upon the cost of their procedures, it is important to remember that a more experienced and practiced plastic surgeon may charge more than a surgeon with less experience. For this reason, when considering a body lift procedure, remember that your comfort with a cosmetic surgeon and his or her skills is more important than the final cost of your surgery.
