Breast Augmentation Cost in Columbus Ohio
There are a variety of options for breast augmentation. Most commonly you can use either saline or silicone implants. Silicone implants are often described as feeling more "natural." There has been some push lately for "autologous" breast augmentation using your own fat cells. I do not perform this in my practice as the costs and length of surgery are much more than those done with implants. Also, there are limitations on what size of augmentation that you can get with only using your own fat cells.
I encourage you to make sure your surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and that that person is someone you would trust after meeting with them at your consultation.
In Columbus, Ohio, our total costs for breast augmentation are currently $4500-5100 for saline implants and $5000-5900 for silicone implants.
Fat transfer, breast augmentaiton
Using your own fat cells to enlarge the size of your breasts is still experimental. Early studies show the average increase in bra cup size is less than one cup. You must have adequate fat stores to harvest the fat from, and having more than one injection session is fairly common. Radiologists are still being trained to read mammograms on women who have had this procedure done. It is usually at least twice as expensive as silicone implant breast augmentation, which creates predictable and excellent results.

Natural Breast Augmentation Cost
That’s a wonderful question!
You’re absolutely right; the variability in pricing for a natural breast augmentation is a point of confusion for many patients. It all boils down to whether by “natural”, your referring to implant based natural appearance and feel, or using your own tissue or fat cells. Both of these can be accomplished, but many consider using your own fat cells to enlarge the size of your breasts still experimental with significant limitations.
If your are searching for a natural appearance and feel using gel implants, it’s easiest to make sure you understand what the OVERALL cost of the procedure is, and what precisely it includes in terms of cost and expertise in your geographical region. Our range depending on your specific needs is $5,000 - $7,500. It should absolutely be all-inclusive, and the most influential factors include,
- Is this an actual Plastic Surgeon performing the operation?
- Is the plastic surgeon Fellowship Trained specifically in aesthetic plastic surgery?
- Does the surgeon hold privileges at a local hospital, as a Plastic Surgeon?
- Where will the surgery be performed? Hospital or certified outpatient surgery center?
- What type of anesthesia will be used? General versus local anesthesia?
Choose your surgeon based NOT only on price, but whether you feel he would truly walk you thru the process and can achieve your long-term aesthetic goals. Also, it is not unreasonable to ask to speak to prior patients, visit the surgical facility, and see before and after photos.
You should also keep in mind that your choice of plastic surgery practice and surgeon, should also be a long-term choice. Chances are that you may want further services for yourself, family, and friends and want to establish a place where you become a member of the family. So be sure you love the staff, and the overall feel of the office. This should be a long-term investment in your future.
Natural breast augmentation
When looking at different breast augmentation prices there are many factors as to why you see different prices. Most doctors that charge more would like you to think it is because they are better trained or give you a better result. This is not the case. typically there are many factors that contribute to what a doctors charges
1)does the doctor have their own surgery center pr have to use a hospital. If they have to use the hospital this can add several thousand dollars to the cost which is passed on to the patient. The doctors that have to use a hospital will try to tell you its safer but the reality is this has never been shown scientifically and all Board certified plastic surgeons are required to operate in certified surgery centers. So those with their own centers have facilities with the same set of standards as the hospital and at times are certified by the same agency. So most Surgeons with their own surgery center pass the discount on to their patient.
2)Time in the Operating room. The less experienced, indecisive a surgeon or the fewer cases a plastic surgeon does per year the longer they will take in the operating room to perform the procedure. Thus the more they are charged by the hospital or anesthesia staff. The more specialized the plastic surgeon is with breast augmentation the more efficient he is with the procedure so the less time it take and the less it will cost. Not to mention the more they do the less they pay for the same implants. Again most surgeons should pass this savings on to the patient.
3)Experience.. the more experienced sometimes the more the Doctor feels they can demand for their services. What you should look for, is to make sure they are a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. They should also be a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery as well as a member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (which is the most prestigious cosmetic society a plastic surgeon who performs cosmetic breast augmentation can belong to).
4) Lastly sometimes geography comes into play when in certain regions of the country the cost for staffing and facility are much higher than in others.
I perform over 1000 breast augmentations per year. And I am a member of the above societies as well as a member of the lead surgeons. We have our own surgery center and charge what we feel to be an honest cost of only 3000$ for saline and 4000$ for silicone breast augmentation and this includes all cost..
What do you mean by 'natural' augmentation? You may want to discuss your options with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area.
Natural breast augmentation
This is just beginning to gain ground and was only recently "condoned" by our society this past year. Individuals vary on their techniques and costs. You must have sufficient donor sites to achieve breast enlargement and may require multiple sessions to achieve a satisfactory augmentation.

Breast enlargement is still one of the most common procedures that I do. Most of my patients are after pregnancy and you can get a very natural and long lasting effect with the newer silicone implants. You may need a small uplift that that I determine at the consultation.
Are you referring to fat transfer to augment breasts? This is a procedure that is not well defined yet. It is very expensive compared to standard augmentation and may need several procedures to get to the desired fill level.
