Aesthetic Surgery is mostly considered a “want” rather than a “need”. This means that Medical Aid companies actively exclude this type of surgery from coverage.
Generally speaking, most Plastic Surgeons negotiate a fixed rate with both hospitals and anesthetists who normally bill time, rather than procedural fees. This means that a fixed price can be settled on before the surgery.
Below is a guide to SOME of my 2018 aesthetic prices done at the Advanced Day Hospital in Knysna. This is given as a “ball park” guide and I can only offer each patient an actual quote once I have personally examined them and determined what the best procedure (or combination of procedures) will be.
