Cost of breast reconstruction

In Canada, all aspects of breast reconstruction are typically covered by the provincial health insurance.  This includes surgery to the contralateral breast to improve symmetry.

Breast reconstruction cost


If you were to have these procedures done as cash pay, the costs will certainly vary depending on your location.  Most breast reconstructions are covered by insurances, so it is difficult to give a "cost" for this procedure.  Things to factor in for the reconstructive standpoint will be the facility fee, anesthesia fee, hospital stay fee (if postoperative stay is required), surgeon fee, implant cost, other fees (e.g., acellular dermal matrix cost, pain pump, surgical garment, etc.)  It would behoove you to get quotes on this and discuss with your surgeon cost as an aesthetic procedure.  I imagine that the prices listed by the others here are not unreasonable to expect.  Good luck!

There is no set price for double mastectomy and implant-based reconstruction.  Because these procedures are normally covered by insurance, there is no set price from surgeons.  The cost will vary by regions as well as surgeons.  without insurance, you have to pay for hospital cost, anesthesia fee, implant cost, breast surgeon and plastic surgeon's fee.

Costs of Double Mastectomy and Reconstruction


As you probably know, insurance must cover post mastectomy reconstruction with the diagnosis of breast cancer. Now with the breast cancer gene BRCA testing, I have not seen insurance companies deny treatment without the definitive diagnosis. If you were to pursue a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction as self-pay, the biggest chunk of the huge price tag would NOT be from your docs. This would come from the Hospital for their operating room and anesthesia fees and the inpatient hospital stay.

Cost of mastectomy with implant reconstruction


I am not sure that there is any set fee. Furthermore depending on the reasons for the mastectomy, you may have a general surgeon and plastic surgeon join efforts or just a plastic surgeon perform the combined procedure. Fees would include OR, implants (and possibly expanders), anesthesia, supplies, in addition to surgeon's fees.

I can't imagine this would run any less than $8,000 and could run up to 20,000 or more.

Cost of surgery-shop around


Since there are no set fees for this type of procedure you should shop around. You may find a significant difference based on many factors including the plastic surgeon doing both parts of the surgery vs two surgeons, differences in facility and anethesia fees and how willing the surgeon is to negotiating a price.

I can't tell you what these costs might be but you could call Dr. Eberbach's office in Tampa and ask.  Roughly, costs for double mastectomy, anesthesia, facility, plastic surgery reconstruction without insurance will exceed $20,000 I suspect.

Cannot give you and answer!

This is done at a hospital which normally would not share the facility costs with you in order to create and estimate.  You should go to the local support groups and see what resources are available as well as the oncology groups.Please find an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and member of the Aesthetic Society using the Smart Beauty Guide. These Plastic Surgeons can guide you on all aspects of facial surgery, breast augmentation and body procedures including tummy tucks or mommy makeovers!
