I thought of having Eid perform mine. But $35K is a lot of money for me. Also I was told if you have an infection or other problem, no other doctor would touch you. I’ve heard of >$100K to treat infections properly.

I got mine totally free, no infection and only 1/2 inch shorter than pre-op.

Can anyone comment on how much it would be to treat an infection? $100k seems really high and I thought docs do treat infections...

It's obviously quite a bit of money but then again may be worth it to ensure you get maximum size and functionality out of your new implant.

Thoughts?


Where do you live? Someone here may advise you of a good high volume implant surgeon near you.
