Breaking Down Costs & Options at Austin Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
Your Cosmetic Surgery Consultation
When scheduling your consultation appointment with Dr. Christine Fisher , you will pay a $100 consultation fee over the phone at the time of booking, which will then be applied to your final surgical pricing summary. If for any reason you need to cancel your appointment, the $100 fee is refundable up to 48 hours prior to your consultation. If you find that you cannot make your consultation within 48 hours of your appointment, we will happily reschedule you at your convenience.
Your appointment will be about an hour long, during which time you will discuss your goals and the steps to achieving your desired outcome, as well as your personalized treatment plan. Dr. Fisher takes into consideration each patient's lifestyle, how they are shaped, and how they carry their weight, making each person's plan unique for every procedure.
Surgical Pricing Summary
After meeting with Dr. Fisher you will receive a written pricing summary that includes all costs related to the procedure, including the surgeon's fees, facility and anesthesia fees, post-operative garments, all follow-up visits, and coverage by CosmetAssure, a supplemental insurance policy that provides financial coverage to patients undergoing cosmetic plastic surgery in the unlikely event of a medical complication not covered by their primary insurance.
Please note that the procedure time is estimated at the consultation, but occasionally more time is required to achieve an optimal result. It is possible there could be an additional charge for longer anesthesia time. There would be no additional surgeon charge for a longer procedure time.
The outside fees that a patient may incur are related to required anesthesia-protocol lab work and an EKG test and/or mammogram if undergoing breast surgery. All labs, EKG tests, and mammogram requirements for surgery are dependent on age and the date of the last test the patient has undergone.
