Costs of bilateral mastectomies with reconstruction?

The cost varies depending on your insurance. Most people have a copay with their insurance to undergo surgery. This number is frequently high for example $2000-$5000. Then your policy may have a 90/10 or 80/20 where you pay for 10-20% of the overall bill. It is best to call your insurance company and find out exactly what you have. If you do not have insurance then that totally changes things and you would have to contact individual doctors to see what kind of cash deal you can get. I am located in Houston, TX. I do a lot of breast reconstruction in my practice. Please do not hesitate to send me an email if you have any other questions or if I can help in any way.
