ASPS Shares National Average Fees for Top Cosmetic Procedures

National Surgeon Fees for Cosmetic Procedures

As part of its annual procedural statistics, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) asked members to share their fees—not including anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses—for surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. The data collected was used to create a list of national average surgeon fees to help members as they evaluate their own pricing for these procedures.

Average fees for the most-performed minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in 2018 were:

  • Botulinum toxin injections: $397
  • Chemical peels: $669
  • Laser hair removal: $285
  • Microdermabrasion: $131

The least expensive surgical procedures were:

  • Labiaplasty: $2,924
  • Eyelid surgery: $3,156
  • Liposuction: $3,518
  • Breast augmentation: $3,824

The most expensive surgical procedures included:

  • Facelift: $7,655
  • Abdominoplasty: $6,253
  • Breast reduction: $5,680
  • Rhinoplasty: $5,350

Compared to 2017 statistics, the national average surgeon fee for breast augmentation surgery increased 2.8 percent, the cost for liposuction increased 4.2 percent and the cost for rhinoplasty and abdominoplasty increased 4.4 percent. The cost for neurotoxin injections increased by 3 percent from 2017, while the cost for laser hair removal decreased by 2.7 percent. Chemical peel and microdermabrasion fees decreased by 4 percent compared to last year.
