Having a plastic surgery procedure performed in Canada has become more affordable in recent years. However, you can still expect to spend on average about $3,000 to $7,000 for a single procedure in Canada. You will spend more if your plastic surgeon has multiple plastic surgery board certifications. Generally speaking, unless a plastic surgery procedure corrects a medical condition, the surgery is not covered by insurance.
Most Popular Procedure
Breast enlargement is among the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Canada. The average cost of breast augmentation is $4,500. The surgery will increase the size of your breasts but will not enhance the asymmetry of the nipples. Breasts augmentation surgery also brings the breasts closer together and lifts those that droop. Silicone bags that contain saline solution are implanted beneath the breast tissue.
Abdominoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that involves removing fat and extra skin from the abdomen and tightens the abdominal muscles. The surgeon makes two incisions, one from hip to hip and another around the navel. The fat and extra skin are removed, the abdominal muscles are surgically shortened and sutured together.
The navel is repositioned in most cases and stretch marks can also be removed during the tummy tuck procedure. Expect to spend an average of $5,500 for a tummy tuck procedure in Canada.
Liposuction Removes Stubborn Fat
Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that removes fat with a vacuum device called a cannula. Liposuction procedures can be performed on almost every part of the body and the face. The surgeon makes an incision in the area where the fat will be removed, the cannula is inserted into the incision and the fat is vacuumed out.
The average liposuction procedure costs about $3,000. Frequently, multiple liposuction procedures are performed during one operation and cost about $7,000.
Rhinoplasty is a nose job and the average cost is $5,500. Rhinoplasty is a relatively complicated procedure and is designed to remove bumps, while reshaping and/or reducing the size of the nose. The more experienced the plastic surgeon, the more expensive the procedure. During the initial rhinoplasty consultation, it's a good idea to bring photos of what you want your nose to look like after surgery.
A full facelift procedure costs an average of $10,000 in Canada. This procedure is divided into several parts: forehead, upper eyelids, the middle of the face and lower eyelids, the lower face and lips, and the neck.The full procedure involves incisions at the hairline and behind the ears. Results generally last about 10 years and are the most demanding of all plastic surgery procedures.
