Factors Influencing the Price

The cost of cheek implant cosmetic surgery can vary from one practice to another, and sometimes also from one patient to another at the same practice. A number of factors will go to determine the actual price of the procedure.


Location of the Practice

Practices located in prime cities around the coasts and other major urban centers will usually cost more for cheek implants and other procedures. The average monetary amount for living is generally higher in such areas than smaller towns and interior regions. Costs of living are determined by the median household income, real estate costs, employment opportunities, local taxes, and other aspects.


Surgeon’s Fee

The plastic surgeon may charge a fee for cheek implant procedure according to their skills, qualifications and experience. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, patients should choose the right surgeon for their needs, and elements such as the surgeon’s fee should be secondary to such decisions. Board certified plastic surgeons will typically maintain very high quality standards for any surgery, and will not cut corners or make compromises on safety just to lower the costs.


Anesthesia and Operating Room Costs

Cheek implant surgery is typically performed using IV sedation, but may involve monitored anesthesia if the procedure is combined with other surgeries. The fee charged by an anesthesiologist or a registered anesthetist nurse can vary according to their qualifications and experience. The procedure may be performed at a private surgical suite, ambulatory surgical center or a hospital. The costs and benefits in each case will vary.


Extent of Surgery

Cost effectiveness of a procedure such as cheek implant surgery can dramatically improve if it is performed in conjunction with other surgical procedures. Even when it is performed independently, the cost may vary from one patient to another depending on the severity and complexity of the procedure.
