BATON ROUGE, La., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BuildMyBod, the plastic surgery site responsible for the BuildMyBod web and mobile app and the recently launched BuildMyBod Promos, released its Annual Plastic Surgery Pricing Report for 2013.

The 2013 report highlights complete procedural costs from Board Certified Plastic Surgeons around the United States including member-surgeons of the two most representative plastic surgery societies: American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). 

Plastic surgery pricing is of immense online interest. According to Google search data, out of the millions of Google searches that occur monthly within the plastic surgery space, 10% of those searches are explicitly seeking procedure pricing and cost information.

To date, this is the most accurate data released on plastic surgery pricing. All pricing data was collected from Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, which includes physician fees and ancillary fees such as operating room or anesthesia fees, and implant fees that account for up to half of the total procedure – costs that were noticeably absent in previous surveys.

Based on information collected from the BuildMyBod database, here are some highlights of the Annual Plastic Surgery Pricing Report for 2013:

Breast Augmentation (silicone implants) total procedure price U.S. average: $6,443

  • Southern Region average: $6,006
  • Western Region average: $6,140
  • Northeast average: $7,577
  • Midwest average: $6,760

Tummy Tuck total procedure price U.S. average: $7,187

  • Southern Region average: $6,740
  • Western Region average: $6,911
  • Northeast average: $8,550

Facelift total procedure price U.S. average: $8,409

  • Southern Region average: $8,169
  • Western Region average: $8,530
  • Northeast average: $8,906
  • Midwest average: $8,081

"Our goal, at BuildMyBod, is to create more knowledgeable consumers and help connect them to Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. By selecting procedures of interest, consumers can determine the total estimated costs of  those procedures from participating plastic surgeons, all before they enter the office for a consultation," said Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, CEO of BuildMyBod, and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

BuildMyBod, the technology-based startup was founded by Dr. Jonathan Kaplan. BuildMyBod.com offers consumers a complete database of procedure pricing and BuildMyBod Promos notifies consumers of specials on non-surgical procedures by Board Certified Plastic Surgeons in their area.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
