Unilateral breast implant exchange.
If this is for a simple exchange without the need for capsular work it could be performed under IV sedation (no need for anesthesiologist). Our cost for this would include the implant, the operating room with IV sedation and surgeon's fee and all follow up visits would be under $2000. All of this is performed by a board certified plastic surgeon in a fully accredited ambulatory surgery center.
A full bilateral augmentation using general anesthesia with a board certified anesthesiologist and using saline implants is less than $5000. Prices seem to be much less in the midwest.
