A lot goes into choosing the right plastic surgeon to do your procedure. You want a plastic surgeon who is an expert in their field, well trained with qualified credentials and with years of experience. Importantly, you also want to feel safe and comfortable with them.
How much things cost is another important variable that comes into play when embarking on a surgical plan to improve or make a change to your appearance. Dr. vanVliet works hard to keep her fees fair and affordable. She is well-versed with procedures both private and with those that are potentially funded (fully or partially) by OHIP.
To help you understand how things are priced, the total fee for a cosmetic surgical procedure is actually the sum of 3 separate fees:
- Dr. vanVliet’s Fee: This includes your surgical procedure and all your pre- and post-operative follow-up visits. Dr. vanVliet places a premium on providing a seamless safety net for you so that you feel well supported throughout your healing period. Her surgical fee also includes all your compression garments and scar gels that help to optimize your outcome.
- The Facility Fee: Minor surgical procedures that can be done under local anesthesia are often done at the Van Vliet Clinic. Surgical procedures requiring sedation or general anesthetics will be done at Southlake Regional Health Centre, where Dr. vanVliet is acting chief of plastic surgery. Southlake hospital is right next door to our clinic and it is a state-of-the-art hospital with excellent nursing and anesthesia staff. An overnight stay may be required for more extensive surgical procedures; there is a separate fee for this.
- The Anesthesia Fee: If your surgery requires sedation or a full general anesthetic, an hourly fee will be applied for your anesthetist.
We are happy to provide an estimate of what procedures cost online or by phone. However, a full consultation with Dr. vanVliet is recommended. It will ensure that you have a complete and accurate picture of the full cost of your procedure. We will provide you with convenient financing options to fit your budget, and to allow you to have your procedure on your timeline.
