According to the United States’ authority of plastic surgery, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Americans spent more than $16 Billion on plastic surgery procedures in 2016. This includes both cosmetic and minimally invasive procedures. The Business Insider cites that, of this amount, $8 Billion (50%) was spent on invasive operations. Not including hospital and staff fees, the United States national average for Dr. Alexandre Charão’s top-ranked procedures (breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck, facelift, and buttock augmentation) can cost between $3,000 and $7,000. Dr. Alexandre Charão’s partnerships with affordable, state-of-the-art clinics in Rio de Janeiro means that these same procedures cost 50-70% less in Brazil. All his prices include the additional fees and costs necessary for performing plastic surgery.
The reason why Americans are spending so much is due to high demand and rising costs. “And as the desire for these procedures rises, so does the cost. The report also found that the average price of the two types of injections…has increased since 2015 by one percent and five percent, respectively. Based on previous trends, we can only guess those numbers will continue to climb” (Allure). To back up this claim, data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows that “between 2000 and 2016, there’s been 132% more procedures – and that number doesn’t include reconstructive surgeries in response to injury, disease, or gender confirmation” (Business Insider).
Many international organizations, including the ISAPS, rank Brazil as #2 in the world for plastic surgery procedures. This is driven by the country’s vast network of highly-trained surgeons, including Dr. Alexandre Charão, who can offer world-class precision and attention to detail for a much smaller cost. As plastic surgery becomes more and more popular, the risk-factor is greatly reduced. This is due to advancements in technology which lead to new methods. Receiving any procedure in Rio de Janeiro is incredibly safe. If you choose to work with Dr. Alexandre Charão you will be in very good hands. Save money and schedule your initial consultation today!
