For example, Dr. Felipe Schmitt Sánchez offers services that fall under both sub-specialties.

Dr. Felipe Schmitt Sánchez, above all, specializes in natural looking results.

When determining the price of a plastic surgery procedure, three main factors taken into account. First, a part of the cost goes towards paying your plastic surgeon. Second, the cost of the facility where the surgery is performed is a factor. Finally, the cost of anesthesia is also included.
