Average cost for breast implants
The average cost of breast implant surgery will vary from city to city and region to region. It is important to get the “total” cost when comparing between offices. The total cost will include the surgeon fee, anesthesia fee, and facility. Make sure that you are comparing apples to apples.
Also, be careful of “great deals”. Reputable, experienced surgeons should be all around the same price. If someone is extremely low it should be a red flag. Finally another “cost” to surgery is the time off work, school or other regular activities, as well as potential complications. Choose your surgeon wisely and not just based on dollars in order to get the best work, recovery and long term satisfaction. (Ronald Schuster, MD, Baltimore Plastic Surgeon)

Breast augmentation costs vary in different parts of the US. They also depend on the type of implants used, as well as the typical fees of the practice selected. Well-trained, board certified plastic surgeons charge typically between 6,000. and 8,500 for silicone gel breast augmentation on the west coast.
This would include surgery, implants, anesthesia and operating room costs. Form stable silicone implant surgery usually runs a bit more, as these implants are quite costly for the doctor to purchase. (Stephen Bresnick, MD, Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon)

AverageCost of breast implants
Average Costs will vary greatly depending on your location and the expertise of the plastic surgeon you choose. In this life, for the most part, you get what you pay for.
Be sure the surgeon you pick has proper credentials, experience, good results, and treats you with courtesy and respect. Find the best surgeon you can; then focus on how you can afford him or her.
Your body and the end results are way to precious to try to find a cheap surgeon who might botch your surgery. You would then need a second surgery (more cost) or possibly have a situation that cannot be fixed. (Victor Ferrari, MD, FACS, Charlotte Plastic Surgeon)
Breast Implant Procedure Costs: Our Fees and National Averages
Before you shop for surgery by price, realize that you “purchase” completely different services from different surgeons in different settings. More on that below.
The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons most recent national statistics show that the average MD fee is $3,535, but don’t include the other costs (facility, anesthesia, etc.).Our office as of 2013 estimates breast enlargement procedures costing $5,450. Our estimates include Dr. Graham’s surgical fee, our nationally accredited private surgical facility, MD anesthesiologist services, postop bras, implants, and first year’s follow up care.
If you select additional procedures there are additional costs.As I mentioned, “purchasing” a surgical procedure is not comparable to purchasing an automobile. There is no engineered standard production. Each one is not the same as another. Therefore shopping tummy tuck by price won’t get you very far. It is better to think of selecting the services of a knowledgeable professional adviser. Your have to do your best to evaluate the professional, and they have to try to help you reach your goals.
