A Plumber can certainly handle it - and probably less likely to overtighten or undertighten the bolts, which can break the toilet (overtighening) or cause the seat and bolts to break off becuae they squirm around under use (undertightened).

A Handyman should also be able to do it - just be sure to emphasize snug but not reefing on the bolts.

Whoever does it, be sure they show you how to flip up or spin out the bolt covers on the seat, and which way is up on the nuts, so you can retighten it or replace it inthe future yourself. Not hard to do, but if not familiar with replacing toilet seats maybe better to have someone walk you through it first time. Or check out manufacturer or other Youtube videos on how to do it - really quite simple.

Pl;ujber probably bout $75-150 for a service call, Handyman maybe $50-100 range minimum service charge (this is about a 5 minute job).
