Surgical Procedure Costs
As each patient is different, we’re unable to provide an exact cost estimate until after your initial consultation.
The cost for Dr Jeremy Hunt to perform your plastic surgery is calculated according to the complexity and duration of the procedure.
It includes Dr Hunt’s time performing the procedure, comprehensive before and aftercare and associated costs such as your anaesthetist and hospital fees.
Medicare Rebate Eligibility – Does Medicare Cover the Surgery?
For some medically necessary procedures like breast reduction mammoplasty, abdominoplasty, torsoplasty for excess skin, and blepharoplasty, Medicare rebates may apply if you meet the strict criteria. Please visit Dr Hunt’s Medicare Item Number page for more information. Dr Hunt will assess your eligibility and discuss this with you during your consultation.
Claiming Private Health Insurance
If you have private health insurance, it may cover your hospital fees if your procedure is eligible for a Medicare item number. You will discuss this during your consultation with Dr Hunt. Please call Your Health Fund and find out if you have the right level of cover.
Will Your Super Fund Pay for Surgery? – Early Withdrawal of Superannuation for Medical Procedures
For surgical procedures that are deemed medically necessary, the ATO has allowed patients access to their superannuation funds to cover out-of-pocket costs for the procedure.
Please read the page on Early Release of Superannuation for Surgery.
CAUTION! – A word of caution about cheap cosmetic surgery and under-trained cosmetic doctors
Dr Jeremy Hunt urges you to be extremely cautious when considering ‘bargain’ surgeries – if the price seems to be too good to be true, it probably is. Always search for the acronyms MBBS FRACS after a plastic surgeon’s name.
If you’re considering cosmetic surgery, cost and prices are things that are no doubt on your mind. The costs of plastic surgery vary greatly, depending on the type of procedure being undertaken. Cosmetic surgery costs will also reflect the level of expertise, experience, and often the level of safety provided by the surgeon.
Why Do Sydney Cosmetic Surgery Prices Differ?
Put simply, there isn’t an average cost of cosmetic procedures for a number of reasons. Most plastic and cosmetic surgeons work to the recommended schedule set out by the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons and Australian Medical Association, which provides a correlation without unifying costs across procedures. The cost of cosmetic surgery will vary based on your needs and the complexity of the procedure, and most procedures actually have four different, variable costs:
- Surgeon’s Fee – The surgeon’s fee for cosmetic procedures will vary according to the complexity and duration required to complete the surgery
- Theatre Cost – Relates to how long you spend in the operating theatre. This is often called the theatre fee
- Anaesthesia – These charges are based on the type of anaesthesia required, be it local or general, along with the operating procedures of the anaesthetist
- Devices – Breast implants, cheek and chin implants and injectables such as fillers and anti-wrinkle injections are referred to as ‘devices’, with prices varying in line with what you require
A surgeon with the highest qualifications such as Fellow Royal Australian College of Surgeons (FRACS), and Member Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), who uses a fully qualified anaesthetist and operates in a fully accredited hospital will have a higher overall fee, but will be more experienced and able to operate according to professional standards of plastic surgery.
Be sure that the fee you think you are paying is the total cost of surgery. A cheaper cost may seem appealing but might not include the fees required from hospitals and support medical practitioners such as anaesthetists.
