BATON ROUGE, La., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BuildMyBod, the plastic surgery site responsible for the BuildMyBod web and mobile app and the recently launched BuildMyBod Promos, released its Annual Plastic Surgery Pricing Report for 2013.
The 2013 report highlights complete procedural costs from Board Certified Plastic Surgeons around the United States including member-surgeons of the two most representative plastic surgery societies: American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
Plastic surgery pricing is of immense online interest. According to Google search data, out of the millions of Google searches that occur monthly within the plastic surgery space, 10% of those searches are explicitly seeking procedure pricing and cost information.
To date, this is the most accurate data released on plastic surgery pricing. All pricing data was collected from Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, which includes physician fees and ancillary fees such as operating room or anesthesia fees, and implant fees that account for up to half of the total procedure – costs that were noticeably absent in previous surveys.
Based on information collected from the BuildMyBod database, here are some highlights of the Annual Plastic Surgery Pricing Report for 2013:
Breast Augmentation (silicone implants) total procedure price U.S. average: $6,443
Tummy Tuck total procedure price U.S. average: $7,187
Facelift total procedure price U.S. average: $8,409
"Our goal, at BuildMyBod, is to create more knowledgeable consumers and help connect them to Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. By selecting procedures of interest, consumers can determine the total estimated costs of those procedures from participating plastic surgeons, all before they enter the office for a consultation," said Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, CEO of BuildMyBod, and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
BuildMyBod, the technology-based startup was founded by Dr. Jonathan Kaplan. BuildMyBod.com offers consumers a complete database of procedure pricing and BuildMyBod Promos notifies consumers of specials on non-surgical procedures by Board Certified Plastic Surgeons in their area.
