What is the Cost for a Lab Fee for a Biopsy on Fat Necrosis?

I have fat necrosis on my breasts from a fat transfer. My surgeon recommended I do a biopsy before doing the mastectomy. My insurance will be covering both of the procedures, and my doctor's assistant can't get the estimated cost for the biopsy from the laboratory. Is there any way I can get an estimate on how much a biopsy and a mastectomy will cost? Thank you in advance. MUT

Cost of labs

You would need to ask the pathology lab your surgeon uses for that fee. Your surgeon would not know their fee, only his fee.
