What is the average cost of a mammogram that is required for breast augmentation surgery?

Hello!  Thank you for your question!  Your mammogram may certainly be covered by your insurance carrier and may be worthwhile to check.  I typically recommend a preoperative mammogram prior to breast surgery, since the architecture of the breast will change.  You should remain proactive with your monthly self examination, annual clinical examination, and mammograms beginning at age 40 (unless family history, as directed by the Radiological Society), and annually thereafter.   If not covered, the cash price will vary in what geographic location you live, but should range in the hundreds of dollars.  Best wishes for a wonderful result!

Mammogram cost.

Mammogram prior to breast augmentation surgery may well be covered by your insurance provider as a standard screening exam if you are over the age of 35. If this is not covered, a simple call to the imaging center will answer your question.

Cost of a Mammogram

When patients have insurance and the mammogram is age-appropriate for screening, the cost would be the co-pay and/or deductible, which of course is different for each policy.

The cash price also varies from city to city, but should be between $75 and $200.

Thanks for the question, and best wishes.
