Resident Hospital for Plastics



Recommended Posts

As of right now, I received quotes from two different surgeons for an arm lift. One was close to $15,000 and another was about $10,000. The Tummy Tuck for the higher end surgeon was in the $20k's and the lower end surgeon would give me a price right now.

I have read on other forums, a lot of people use resident hospitals for plastic surgery. They say it is 1/3 of the cost and that a board certified surgeon is present for the surgery and supervises the whole thing. I'm close to the NYC area which has excellent hospitals so I know I'd be in good hands. Anybody on here look into resident hospitals for their plastics? Resident hospital is looking better and better to me. 😉

Those prices make mine look like it was an absolute sale. My arms8600 LBL and BL 2400 and thigh lift 12500 or so. I chose a local MD He gets people from about the country for his work not prices. NJ is not too far out. Keep looking. For m experience and access were huge.

I’m starting my plastics consultations this week. I’m curious what my quotes will come in at.

But, IMO, the quality of work between a resident and an experienced surgeon is significantly different. Arm lifts are not Uber common, and as I understand pretty tricky.

The aesthetics of my surgery are very important to me (thin scars, natural looking belly button etc). I would not make any compromises in that area

Keep getting quotes. NYC has lots of options.

I would be scared to have residents do it, even if they were supervised. Those prices you got are crazyyyy. I thought mine were high! 6K for arm lift, 8k for Tummy Tuck. And then 5k for facility and anesthesia fees.
