We do not have to increase our price, but we haven’t adjusted inflation for years, which is why the pure number changes.
We are happy to operate on patients from all over the world every day and have overlooked how quickly time flies. In this past period, for example, the price of a pound of butter has changed by 21% due to inflation, the average wage of an industrial worker by 20% and postage stamps by around 40%.
Our Auditor now emphatically pointed out to us that we can no longer do it that way, as we are now even going extra mile for some operations. Of course, it can’t stay that way.
What remains of course, however, is that our patients have significant savings when lengthening and thickening are combined, which we advise every patient for optical reasons anyway. Of course, we are happy to pass on the material and personnel savings through this merger (it is only one operation and not two) to our patients, as before.
The numbers change as follows as a result of the alignment:
ap. EUR 8,600 Elongation alone
ap. EUR 7,200 thickening alone
ap. EUR 15,800 in total
ap. EUR 3,900 discount through material, personnel, operating time and other savings of the combination
ap. EUR 11,900 for lengthening + thickening
Due to legal regulations, this price (the billing points) includes all costs for staff, medical assistance, equipment, material, medication, hygiene, sterility, certification, operating time, cleaning, ISO, etc. There are no additional costs.
It does NOT reflect the surgeon’s earnings.
On pricing in medical practise in general:
It is always unpleasant for us doctors to have to remind people that surgeries cost money. We doctors are actually here to provide healing and treatment, not for billing.
Yet high-quality medical care comes at a price. This is not because the doctor performing the surgery would like to earn an extraordinary amount, but rather because it involves a significant amount of effort to perform high-quality surgery under the safest conditions possible.
Aesthetic surgeries such as penis enlargement are not expensive in comparison to other procedures but quite the contrary, as they are minor procedures. There are other surgeries required due to disease that cost several times this amount. An intervertebral disc operation, for example, can cost around EUR 60,000. This means that you could obtain 14 entire fat sucking operations for the cost of a single intervertebral disc operation, for example.
The unfortunate part for patients is only that their health insurance will not cover aesthetic surgeries such as penis enlargement, meaning that the patient will have to personally bear the costs. That is why we provide the option of financing procedures starting from 3.9%.
We could, of course, reduce the costs of our treatment by carrying out the operations in centres other than those certified in performing the surgery, by employing under-qualified staff, by using cheap materials, by sacrificing our high level of hygiene, or by having the surgery performed by a less expensive yet inexperienced medical assistant. However, this would be undesirable to both you as well as us! We have been known for many years for performing high-quality work and doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our patients. Your health and good results are more important to us than all other factors.
We are well aware that some patients must save their money for a long period of time or must obtain financing to be able to afford this procedure. Because of this, we are especially pleased with seeing the satisfaction and happiness in the eyes of our patients after the surgery once they have seen that all of their efforts have been worth it and all of their worries and fears are a thing of the past.
