5 of the Most Expensive Plastic Surgeries

Plastic surgery in San Francisco has enjoyed year-on-year growth for the past two decades. This growth is attributed to more patients realizing the benefits of plastic surgery stretch beyond improving looks. However, plastic surgery procedures aren’t cheap. And that’s because, in most cases, aside from the procedure, you’re also paying for the experience and expertise of your surgeon. 

So, here is a list of the most expensive plastic surgery procedures in 2022.

Nose Reshaping/ Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is also popularly known as a nose job. And according to the latest AAFPRS report, this procedure tops the list of the most popular plastic surgery procedures today. Rhinoplasty is the enhancement of your nose profile through surgery. Facial imbalances due to disproportionate noses often result in low self-confidence and mental anguish in patients. A nose with structural defects also creates health issues like impaired breathing. 

The issues rhinoplasty can fix include nasal injuries, failed rhinoplasties, birth defects, impaired breathing, and cosmetic nose repair. 

Tummy Tucks

Tummy tucks are popular, especially among women. A tummy tuck procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat from your abdomen. The procedure is done to restore your tummy’s firm and smooth look by strengthening the weak stomach muscles. 

This procedure is especially popular among women because flat tummies have become a standard of beauty. If dieting and exercises don’t work, a tummy tuck is the next best solution. However, tummy tucks aren’t only necessary due to weight problems. Below is a list of other factors that might influence the development of a protruding, loose, and saggy abdomen. 

  • Pregnancy
  • Surgical procedures like c-section
  • Hereditary issues
  • Aging

You must also understand that tummy tucks aren’t substitutes for weight loss procedures. The results of a tummy tuck are easily reversed if you don’t check your weight.


Like rhinoplasty procedures, facelifts have become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures today. Facelifts involve the removal of excess skin and lifting the skin to restore a patient’s youthful look. The procedure is mainly used to reduce any physical signs of aging on a patient’s face by

  • Removing any sagging skin
  • Removal of fold lines around the mouth and nose
  • Getting rid of a ‘turkey neck’ (loose and sagging skin on the neck).
  • Reducing the development of jowls (drooping skin) on your cheeks and jaws.

Patients must understand that facelifts can’t stop the aging process or change a face’s fundamental appearance. 

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is an important procedure that helps reduce patients’ mental and physical health problems. The plastic surgery procedure involves the removal of excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue to achieve a breast size that is more proportional to the patient’s body.

Disproportionately large breasts at times lead to long-term health issues. Heavy breasts make it physically challenging for women to enjoy some physically tasking activities. They also make patients self-conscious about their women, especially when dressing up. For others, large breasts negatively affect their self-image, especially men with gynecomastia (large male breasts).

Remember that not all breast procedures are invasive. Some require liposuction and others require removal of excess breast fat and tissue. 

Body Lift

When people suddenly lose a large amount of weight and have enough skin elasticity, the skin will conform to a new, fitter shape. However, if the skin has lost its elasticity, it will become loose and saggy. Resulting in a body look and shape that’s uncomfortable for most people. 

Body lifts help solve this issue by removing the excess skin and fat. And this procedure aims to reposition and tighten the skin around the patient’s muscles. And this allows the patient to proudly show off the hard work they invested to achieve their new fit physique.

The procedure has three categories: total body lift, upper body lift, and total body lift. And the main reason why it features on this lift is that the procedure is invasive and requires preciseness. Therefore, it requires the skills of a highly experienced surgeon.

Therefore, before seeking the services of a plastic surgeon, conduct thorough research of the surgery prices on offer from several surgeons in your area. However, before trying out the surgery, ensure that you’re clear about why you want to undergo a plastic surgery procedure. You should want the surgical procedure for yourself. So, before paying the expensive surgery fees, ensure that your surgeon has made you aware of the realistic results to expect after the procedure.
