Average breast implant cost
Average Breast Implant surgery costs range from $4,000 to $6,500 depending on the style of implant in my San Antonio, TX clinic. Saline cost between $4,000-$4500, Silicone cost $5,000-$5,500 and the new 410 Gel “Gummy Bear” Implant costs $6,500-$7,000. My costs include everything (facility, Board Certified Anesthesiologist, Physician, Garment, and Implants).
Total costs can vary depending on where you live. Don’t let price be the only factor when deciding on your surgeon. Make sure your Plastic Surgeon is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery.
I would also recommend looking at their before/after pictures, patient reviews, and asking friends or family who they may recommend from a firsthand experience.
Lastly, make sure you like your Plastic Surgeon. You need to feel comfortable with the surgeon and trust that they have your best interest in mind. (Bernard Kopchinski, MD, FACS, San Antonio Plastic Surgeon)
Breast Implant Average Costs
The average cost of breast implants vary often depending on areas of the country. They also commonly vary for the city you live in. My practice is in Las Vegas.
I charge for a saline breast augmentation $4650 and a silicone breast augmentation $5750. The costs include operating room, implants, surgical fees, labwork and first sports bra. (Stephen M. Miller, MD, Las Vegas Plastic Surgeon)
An augmentation alone can cost between $5-7000, including implants, surgeons fees, OR and anesthesia. (Brian K. Reedy, MD, Reading Plastic Surgeon)
Total cost will vary
The total costs will vary based on your surgeon, the geographical location, type of implants, and hospital/ facility/anesthesia fees. In additional, the complexity of your case may sometimes increase the fees as it necessitates longer operative times, ie: if you need a lift or for a revision.
I would recommend meeting with a board-certified plastic surgeon and getting an accurate quote. (Chia Jen Lynn Chung, MD, San Francisco Plastic Surgeon)
Prices for breast augmentation.
The prices for this procedure will very based on some of your implant choices as well as cost that the individual surgeon charges. In Florida the prices also very widely blood for our area the prices are generally in the range of approximately $5000-$6500.
You would like to seek out a experienced board certified plastic surgeon for these procedures. Check the surgeons credentials and they’re Hospital affiliations.
You can also check there previous history regarding disciplinary actions. In addition to that check the facilities and the clinic that they work at (John J. O’Brien, Jr., MD, Saint Petersburg Plastic Surgeon)
In general, silicone implants are a bit more expensive than saline breast implants. In my opinion, silicone is a superior product and you get what you pay for. I would counsel you to be wary of the best “deal” on implants.
Like most things in life, bargain basement prices often mean a sacrifice of quality. When you are talking about a surgical procedure, you are paying for a board certified plastic surgeon, a safe-accredited facility, nursing staffing, state of the art equipment, a board-certified anesthesiologist and a top of the line FDA approved implant.
Depending on the region of the country, you should expect to pay anywhere from $7,000 to $12,000. (Salvatore Pacella, MD, MBA, FACS, San Diego Plastic Surgeon)
Breast Augmentation Pricing
The average cost of a Breast Augmentation can vary widely and the smart patient will do their homework. Make sure you ask questions of the office staff when you begin to call around and start the process of finding the appropriate surgeon. Often times the quoted price of an advertisement does not include all of the fees.
Be certain that the quoted fee includes the surgeon, implant, anesthesia, and facility fees at a minimum. Other fees to be aware of are prescription medications, garment such as a sports bra and other specialty items such as a Keller funnel which your surgeon may use. These can all add up! Once you have the full price in hand, other things to consider when choosing your surgeon is how much he or she charges for revisionary procedures if needed. For example, ask your surgeon or patient coordinator how much it would be out of pocket if you were to develop a complication such as a capsular contracture. Although rare, Its nice to know what you would be expected to pay if such a condition presented itself. (Scot Martin, MD, Las Cruces Plastic Surgeon)
