Breast Augmentation Pricing How much do Breast Implants Cost?

The price for breast augmentation can vary, sometimes significantly.
remember that nothing is more expensive than results that don't meet your hopes and expectations, and re-operation fees. take your time selecting your plastic surgeon.
If possible, visit many plastic surgery websites and select a few physicians based on their training, experience, results (including mamny nefore and after photos), reputation. and philosophy. The most expensive surgeon may or may not be the ideal surgeon for you. "Lowball" pricing may often be an attempt to fill an empty O.R. schedule, or may not be the inclusive cost of surgery.
In my practice, the price for breast augmentation  includes all pre and post-operative visits, pain control pump, a body garment, board certified anesthesiologist, operating room charges in a dual certified (Joint Commission and AAAASF) surgical theater, and no aditional change for an overnight  visit if the patient elects to do so. We insist that out of town patients stay overnight with medical observation.
In order not have any surprises, ask if there are additional potential chages for pre or post-operative visits, pain control devices,or garments. Be sure that there are no additional charges for office visits. There should never be a charge for an office visit if a patient has a concern. In fact, most plastic surgeons want to see you if you have a concern.
Ask if the fee you have been given includes the O.R. staff , equipment and supplies including pain pumps, garments, and of course a board certified anesthesiologist.
Please do not make your decision on the plastic surgeon based on who has the lowest price without looking at the whole picture and taking your time researching to find the right plastic surgeon for you. Always, ask to see many photographs, speak to patients and ask your own physician about any plastic surgeon you are considering.

How much does breast augmentation cost?

Breast augmentation will cost $4500-$5000 in most offices. This should include the surgeon's fee, surgery center fee, anesthesia fee, and your bra to wear after surgery. Make sure you are not choosing a surgeon solely on price and be sure to check your surgeon's credentials.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?

Breast augmentation for saline implants may range from $4000 to $6000. Breast augmentation with silicone implants may range from $6000 to $8000 or more. Gummy bear variants cost an additional amount beyond a regular silicone implant and add to these figures. I perform breast augmentations with all implants available and through all incisions available.

Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of breast augmentations each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Cost of Breast Augmentation

This varies depending on your location and surgeon choice.  It can range from $4K (saline) to the high end of $8K for gel implants.  Surgery is not the time to "bargain-shop".  Learn the prices in your area and then choose your surgeon based on their experience and results.  It will be worth it!

Breast enlargement, breast augmentation, breast implants, financing, cost

The cost of breast augmentation (enlargement) varies between physicians, regions of the country and where the surgery takes place. Typically, costs for breast augmentation run between $4,000 and $7,000 for saline implants and $5,000 to $8,000 for silicone gels. Patients should be sure to inquire about any additional (or hidden) costs when they consult with a physician. For instance, a surgeon who does not operate his or her own surgical center may require patients to pay fees to the hospital or surgical center they will be using separately from the fees paid to the surgeon.

Cost of breast augmentation


The range of breast augmentation cost by plastic surgeon varies from 3000-12,000.  This depends on the implant type (saline implants costs less than silicone), the location of the country, and the surgeon.  In general, an average breast augmentation with silicone implants should be about 6,000 or so.  Be careful about paying significantly more or significantly less.  They key is to find a board certified plastic surgeon that you trust, that is reviewed well online, and that has great before and after photos.

All the best,

Most offices seem to charge between $2500 - $3500 as a surgeon's fee for primary breast augmentation.  Other fees that affect the overall price include implant costs and anesthesia/OR facility charges.  Fees vary widely depending on location within the country, as they should, since overhead costs vary as well.
