Facial Laser Peel

An aesthetician (a manicurist or cosmetician) can do a very light chemical peel in a spa for as little as $50.

This produces a "freshening" effect without any significant wrinkle or scar relief. Physician-performed procedures have a higher complication rate — and that means a chance of facial scarring — in anyone's hands. You're better off with someone who may charge a little more but knows the field better.

Full face, laser peel or deep chemical peel: $2,000 to $5,000

Partial face: $750 to $1,500

Full face, Glycolic peel or light TCA peel: $200 to $1,000

Eyelid Reconstruction

Upper lids or lower lids alone: $1,500 to $2,500

All four lids: $3,500 to $6,000


$1,000 to $25,000 (I'd recommend avoiding the $1,000 surgeon)

Most are between $5,000 to $6,000 for the facelift alone. Adding other facial procedures will increase the cost.

Nose Improvement/Reconstruction

$3,500 to $8,000 is usual. Sometimes insurance will pay a portion if your breathing is impaired.

Chin Augmentation/Reduction

Alloplastic chin implant: $1,500

Genioplasty: $2,500 to $10,000

Hair Transplant

Most patients receive about 750 to 1,500 grafts per session, and some ultimately need 2,000 to 3,000.

Per graft: $4 to $8. Some are doing $3 grafts now.

Breast Implants

This is expensive because of silicone litigation. Each implant represents a few dollars worth of plastic, but its wholesale cost to the doctor is about $350 for saline to $850 for silicone gel, per implant.

Cost to the patient: $4,500 to $7,500. A few surgeons are cheaper.


Treatment often requires multiple sessions. Some doctors are very proficient and are able to eliminate most of the veins in one session.

Injections: $200 to $1,000 per session

Larger veins: $1,500 to $2,500 per leg, sometimes more. This involves surgery.
