Dr. Kim offers a package price to make facial plastic surgery more economical for our patients, particularly when more than one procedure is being considered. This price includes:
- Practice fee
- Facility fee
- Anesthesia fee
Advance Payment Policy
To reserve a surgery date, a nonrefundable 10% of the total surgery costs is required with the remainder balance paid in full at least two weeks prior to the surgery date. Our written estimate will provide you with information regarding the fees and charges that are due at that time. For added payment flexibility, you may seek financing through reputable lenders such as CareCredit and Alphaeon.
Insurance Coverage and Partial Coverage
Dr. Kim will explain whether he believes that your surgery would meet criteria for insurance coverage. If this is the case, then it is important to find out in advance if your policy requires a second opinion or pre-certification for your procedure. Our billing specialists may be able to help you navigate this process. Generally, insurance companies will not cover plastic surgery procedures performed solely for cosmetic purposes.
However, occasionally there are procedures that address cosmetic components and functional issues during the same operation. In those cases, your insurance may cover the functional portion of the procedure while the remaining cosmetic procedure will be an out-of-pocket expense.
