OC plastic surgeon

Please recommend plastic surgeon for breast augmentation in Orange county , CA. And also why the prices in Beverly Hills are significantly cheaper than OC?

I've met with a few surgeons in OC for consultations but ultimately turned elsewhere after getting bad vibes from the few I met. So I won't make a recommendation. Dr. Pousti was the only one I was fond of, but he retired.

However, as for pricing...that can vary widely. I wouldn't even say it is specific to a small locale (e.g., Beverly Hills versus OC). A surgeon who is renowned and knows they are renowned may charge a premium, no matter what their location is. Or maybe they are known as exceptionally good at a niche procedure (e.g., revisions to XL implants; revisions are tough, but they can be tougher for XL patients). If they were great at their job but also super cheap, they'd have a 10yr waiting list, which is ridiculous. Conversely, if they are mediocre with no waiting list, their prices may be on the lower side. It's all supply-n-demand from Economics 101. Although operating rooms, anesthesia, and other amenities in different regions affect the cost, I believe the premium the surgeon places on their services is the bigger factor. And also note that if a surgeon owns their own operating room (i.e., they do not use a nearby hospital), that may raise the cost too.

Dr Robert Wald in Fullerton. He's affordable. I can update you once I get my surgery in a few weeks. I'm nervous.

I only have seen one plastic surgeon in OC and I wouldn’t necessarily recommend him. I did want to say, that is not necessarily true. I went to a consultation in BH and he wanted about 20k for BA with a lift. The OC guy was under 20k for a mommy makeover. For Southern California a BA will range from 9k-22k.

I went to dr motakef. His office is in Anaheim hills but surgery is at a surgery center in Fullerton. I went to a couple consultations but his was amazing. I paid roughly $6800 for silicone implants. Iím on week 1 post op and they are looking amazing
