Much of what we do is subject to individual circumstances.  For instance, the removal of an average size (1/2 inch or 1.5 cm) non-infected sebaceous cyst on the back:

In the office setting, should be $400 plus a separate charge of $53 that goes with the specimen for pathologic evaluation. That would include your post-op visit(s) for suture removal and evaluation. Pathology results are available usually within 2-3 days.

In a surgery center, assuming the cyst is larger, our fee would start at $700. Typical facility fees would be around $1500-1800 to include the OR time, anesthesia, materials, and pathology.

As you can see, there are many factors which can influence your costs. We will give you the fees that apply to your evaluation at the time of your consult.
Having said that, there are some fees we use as the standard for our office.
