Description

This article is from the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery FAQ, by mooncrow@lava.net (Robert Green) with numerous contributions by others.

E.5 - How much does it cost on average?

Note that the following are averages of *SURGEON'S FEES ONLY* and
you should expect to pay additional fees for almost all of these
procedures to cover the costs of surgical and/or hospital
facilities, medications, nursing care, anesthesia, etc, and that
(for some procedures) these additional costs may total as much or more
than the surgeon's fee itself.
