2. Facility Fee. The building where you have the surgery (Surgery Center or Hospital) has associated costs. You want to make sure the center is appropriately accredited (e.g. AAAASF for surgery centers). The facility maintains all of the instruments, supplies, and equipment used during the operation. This also covers the costs of the nurses, technicians, and other personnel that take care of you before and after surgery. The facility fee alone should cost more than $2,000.
If you live out of town, you'll need to plan to stay in Baltimore a minimum of 7 days. When possible, my staff will provide courtesy transportation to and from our office throughout your stay. Our office will also provide courtesy transport from the BWI airport or Baltimore train station to your hotel. To read more about accommodations for out of town patients, please refer to our out of town patient section.
Tissue necrosis. Modifying your tissues can inadvertently limit their blood and nutritional supply, causing them to die. These destroyed cells can cause skin irregularities, stiffness, and discoloration. Your doctor may need to surgically remove tissue affected by necrosis. This condition is more common in patients who smoke, which is one reason why your plastic surgeon will advise you to quit smoking before and after your butt lift surgery.
