For many women, breast augmentation surgery is the right choice to help with self-esteem issues, to better balance their natural frame, and to finally feel confident with their appearance. Dr. Fouda Neel’s breast augmentation packages offer favourable pricing and financing can be provided by two leading third party companies: Medicard and Credit Medical. The cost of each package is influenced by the type of surgery involved.
This is one of the most common questions for patients.  Breast augmentation is widely variable in cost because each patient is different in their goals for the procedure.  Depending on factors such as body type, frame, skin type, and look there are a wide variety of implants that meet each goal.  The technology is vastly improved from previous versions of the devices but in general saline cost less than silicone.  Silicone has different cohesiveness to it and each level that you increase the cohesiveness can cost more.  Also, different manufactures (allergen, mentor, sientra) have different cost for similar technology.  I would recommend going in for a consultation so that you can see, feel, and learn about the differences between them.  At that point you could get accurate information on cost as they very from physician to physician, practice to practice, and patient to patient (as other procedures may be needed).
A curvature and droopy tip brings undue focus to this young man’s nose. Although there is still some swelling in these early post-operative photos, we can already see a nose that is now straight, has a smooth profile and no longer droops. A sense of length is preserved to match his oval face. More than that, because of these positive changes, he also looks younger.
Case 78: A combination approach was used here to create a really meaningful but completely natural transformation. Otoplasty made prominent ears all but disappear from the field of view and no longer distract or draw attention. At the same time, rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, and neck liposuction accomplished were able to remove a nasal hump and overprojection while improving chin and neck laxity to achieve a nice overall balance.

Case 88: The goals of this septorhinoplasty were to straighten her crooked nose and improve breathing. She also hated how her nasal hump and length brought attention to her irregular profile. In our opinion, the mark of a good rhinoplasty is that the nose should become a background feature, and she’s very happy to have achieved that goal with her Profiles rhinoplasty.
Some physicians promote low priced breast augmentation, only for a patient to discover that the price is for only one type of implant, with one type of incision. This may not be appropriate for all patients. Then, the "bait and switch" ensues. A different implant will cost more, pain control will cost more. An anesthesiologist will cost more, if an MD anesthesiologist is even an option. Then, just like buying a used car, the price will shift from the total price to monthly payments with a financing plan that could be very regrettable. This is a huge red flag. If these kinds of tactics are used, you, as a consumer should be very concerned. 
However, it’s not without real risks. A liquid nose job should be done only by a skilled plastic surgeon with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, using only hyaluronic-acid-based fillers. Misplaced filler can cut off blood flow and cause skin necrosis (tissue death). If it’s caught quickly, the hyaluronic-acid filler can be dissolved by a doctor, using an injection of hyaluronidase. But because this risk is serious, fillers have not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in the nose. 
As with any medical/surgical treatment, individual results may vary. Only a surgeon/physician can determine whether reconstruction or augmentation>is an appropriate course of treatment. The following are general adverse events associated with breast implant surgery: Device Rupture, Capsular contracture, Infection, Hematoma/Seroma, Pain, Reoperation, Implant removal, changes in Nipple and Breast Sensation, unsatisfactory results, breast-feeding complications. Other reported conditions are listed in the Product Insert Data Sheet (PIDS). See full list in the PIDS for the product information. These potential adverse events, including contraindications, warnings, and precautions need to be discussed with your doctor prior to surgery.
If the rhinoplasty is necessary to improve breathing, rather than for aesthetic purposes, there is a possibility that the repair may be covered by insurance. An obstructed airway is usually caused by a deviated septum, and operating is necessary to restore normal air flow. Physicians will refer patients with this problem to facial plastic surgeons, who are able to determine the impairment and who will receive authorization by the insurance company to operate.
Case 25: This patient had what is called a tension nose wherein a convexity on the bridge pushes the tip forward and down. Notice how this also puts tension on the upper lip and appears to tether it from inside. a combination of straightening, improving breathing, removing the hump, and setting the tip appropriately also helps to relax the upper lip and complete the look.
It is important for patients considering rhinoplasty to understand that if their nose requires repair due to congenital malformation, illness or injury, at least part of the operation is likely to be covered by insurance. This includes situations like sports injuries, vehicular accidents, or birth defects that result in breathing problems. In most cases of cosmetic surgery, however, performed only to improve the patient’s appearance, the patient should expect to pay out-of-pocket.

Meeting with multiple prospective surgeons is also a great way to make your choice. Make sure you are comfortable speaking to the surgeon, and make sure he or she asks you plenty of questions, and does not rush you through any part of the consultation. After you have fully described your goals, the surgeon should provide you with informative, thoroughly explained options.
Because you will be under anesthesia, you will be unable to drive yourself home after your procedure. It is important to make arrangements before your surgery and have a loved one or friend ready to pick you up. You will also be prescribed pain medication which you should pick up before your procedure as you will spend the following days afterwards recuperating and won’t be able to perform everyday activities until you are healed.

Make sure the surgeon you choose carefully analyzes both the outside and inside of your nose and presents you with a clear plan for how he intends to approach your surgery. Also, consider the quality of your communication and rapport with your surgeon. These qualities will help you choose a surgeon who truly listens and who takes your concerns seriously.

Case 42: Crooked noses can be one of the hardest things to correct in Rhinoplasty, especially if there has been significant trauma involved. The entire nose must be reconstructed in order to make the desired improvements. It took a lot of work to straighten and improve breathing in this patient’s nose. At the same time, his Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty was designed to make his nose a little smaller, more refined, and less down-turned while still looking natural. Even the scar on his tip was improved as part of his surgery.


Thank you for your question.  The average cost of a breast augmentation will vary a little from area to area but I would caution you not rely on cost considerations alone.  You may be able to find a very cut rate cost somewhere in your area but  safety and quality of results will likely be compromised.  You can find the average cost in your area with a fairly quick search.  You will likely find it is somewhere between $5000 to $8000 for the entire cost.  Make sure what is included in the price quote such as anesthesia costs and facility costs and not just the surgeons fee.
The results are usually permanent, aside from normal changes that come with the aging process. If you’re really not happy with your results or have breathing difficulties once your nose has healed, you may be a candidate for a revision rhinoplasty. In many cases, scar tissue is the main culprit. “The force of a scar is very strong,” says Dr. Miller. “It can pull a nose one way or another—push it in, pull it out, turn it.” When this happens, a surgeon has to go back in and tweak the work. 
One of the main things to keep in mind regarding medical tourism is how difficult it may be to see or even contact your doctor after surgery. Follow-up appointments are extremely important. When surgery is performed internationally, patients either miss post-operative appointments or have to stay in the area for an extended period of time. When you have surgery closer to home, you can more easily attend these appointments and visit your surgeon if any other problems or concerns arise. Many surgeons like myself will revise their own work at no additional charge except for anesthesia fees or surgical venue fees.
Case 71: Tip and nostril width and overall nasal projection made the nose feel dominant for this young woman. Rhinoplasty involved making her whole nose smaller by deprojecting, refining the tip, and removing some nostril flare. At the same time, a nasal fracture and breathing concerns were addressed. Neck Liposuction also helped to define and re-balance her jawline to create the improved facial proportions that she desired.

It is also possible for implants to rupture and leak. If saline implants rupture, the saline will be safely absorbed by the body. A silicone leak may stay inside the implant shell or leak outside of the shell. When a saline implant ruptures, it will deflate. But silicone breast implants may cause no obvious symptoms when they rupture. This is called silent rupture.

Thank you for your question.  The cost of any cosmetic procedure depends on the type of surgery being performed, where the surgery is being performed (surgical center or hospital), geographic location, the surgeon performing the procedure, and whether a medical device is being used.  For breast augmentation, the implants themselves add to the cost of the procedure.  Another major factor is the experience and expertise of the surgeon.   

On average, RealSelf members paid about $7,500 for a rhinoplasty. This includes the cost of the surgeon, anesthesia, and surgery center. Your cost will depend on your surgeon’s geographical location, their expertise level, and the complexity of your surgery. Insurance doesn’t cover rhinoplasty when it’s purely cosmetic, but it can help if you’re looking for structural corrections to alleviate medical problems. “Insurance will typically cover procedures to help improve nasal function [i.e., septoplasty, nasal valve repair, turbinate reduction],” says Dr. Sam Naficy, a Seattle facial plastic surgeon. “The extent of coverage varies, based on the details of the insurance plan.”
If the rhinoplasty is necessary to improve breathing, rather than for aesthetic purposes, there is a possibility that the repair may be covered by insurance. An obstructed airway is usually caused by a deviated septum, and operating is necessary to restore normal air flow. Physicians will refer patients with this problem to facial plastic surgeons, who are able to determine the impairment and who will receive authorization by the insurance company to operate.
If you don't know what nasal packing is, consider yourself lucky. Nasal packing is gauze placed deep inside the nose, usually to prevent or stop bleeding. Dr Rival uses nasal packing in only about 5% of all his rhinoplasty surgeries. Sometimes in very deviated noses he may place plastic splints inside the nose to maintain a straight septum for 5 to 7 days.

Rupture: The outside walls of implants can develop tears or holes. Ruptured saline implants leak quickly, and the body absorbs the saline fluid as the implant deflates. With silicone implants, the gel usually stays within the capsule of tissue around the implant and can’t be absorbed, but it’s possible for it to spread to other parts of the body. The FDA recommends MRI screenings for silicone implant ruptures three years after getting your implants and every two years after that—especially because most silicone implant ruptures are “silent,” meaning that they don’t present noticeable symptoms or changes to the breast’s appearance. (The brand Ideal Implant makes an implant that combines a silicone shell with saline filler to mitigate the risk of silent ruptures.)
