Napa, Calif. — At the most recent Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), attendees learned some of the factors behind physician extender compensation levels in various core aesthetic specialties.
A survey sponsored by TITAN Aesthetic Recruiting showed that nonphysician aesthetic providers who worked for plastic or facial plastic surgeons earned the most: $170,000 annually. “What you’re seeing there is that a lot of overhead is paid for by their surgical practice,” said Mary Beth Hagen, CEO/founder of Titan Aesthetic Recruiting.
Plastic and facial plastic surgeons tended to employ much more experienced injectors, added Ms. Hagen. When the injectable market began exploding, she said, surgeons often delegated these duties to nonphysician staff wherever allowed by law. Full-time injectors who worked for dermatologists (8% of the sample) or other specialists earned approximately $142,000 yearly.
