Breast augmentation surgery is among the most popular of plastic surgery procedures. Increased breast volume and a more attractive shape are favorable results that lead many women to desire this procedure. As expected, most women are curious about what their breast augmentation procedure will cost. Like any form of plastic surgery, there are a variety of factors that make up the total cost of a breast augmentation procedure.
The Cost Factors
Type of Implant – Silicone implants tend to cost more but feel more natural to most women. The specific advantages and costs of both saline and silicone implants will be discussed during your consultation as you and your surgeon will be able to decide which type of implant best suits your needs and budget.
Geographic Location – The location of the practice where you undergo the procedure has a direct effect on the overall price of breast implant surgery. For example, the cost of a breast augmentation in Beverly Hills, California is higher than the cost in a more rural town like Omaha, Nebraska because of the higher population and increased demand for the procedure in cities like Beverly Hills.
Hospital Fees – The type of facility that your procedure is performed in is a very important aspect, not only of the total price, but of your safety as well. Surgeons who perform procedures in accredited ambulatory facilities can provide you with the utmost safety and care from the moment your procedure starts until the time that you leave the facility. The fees at accredited facilities may be more than those at unaccredited facilities, but facility accreditation guarantees that you will receive the quality of care necessary to produce optimum results and safety.
Surgical Fees – The costs of medical tests, prescriptions, and anesthesia are all varying factors that contribute to the total cost of breast implant surgery.
Surgeon’s Experience – The most important variable for the entire procedure is your surgeon’s experience in performing the surgery and the qualifications that he or she has. A qualified surgeon is not only experienced in performing breast implant surgery but also certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). This ensures that the surgeon has gone through rigorous testing and training in many phases of plastic surgery.
