Breast Cosmetic Surgery Cost In Tallahassee, Florida

Cost of Breast Augmentation In Tallahassee, Florida

This is a very common question, but the best anyone can do without meeting you in person is to give you some ballpark numbers. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in 2011 the national average surgeon’s fee for breast augmentation was $3,694 with silicone implants and $3,308 with saline implants.

This is just the surgeon’s fee, and does not include fees for the surgical facility, anesthesia, medical tests, prescriptions, surgical garments, or other miscellaneous costs related to surgery. You’ll find here on RealSelf that the average cost is $6500, but it also depends on what part of the country you’re in. $6,000 to $9,000 is probably the norm, with some surgeons charging less, and some more.

Please don’t choose your surgeon based on who’s offering the best price. Be sure to consult with only board-certified plastic surgeons, and remember your health and safety are priceless. (Andrew Smith, MD, FACS, Orange County Plastic Surgeon)

The cost of breast implants in Tallahassee varies by the region, the type of implant, the surgeon, and the location of the surgery (hospital vs. outpatient surgery suite). Make sure you ask about all of the costs involved. In my practice the current cost of a breast augmentation with saline implants is $6550 and for silicone gel implants the cost is $7500. This includes the surgeon’s, fee, anesthesia fee, implants, consultation (ie everything except prescription meds or preoperative testing.) (Christopher J. Davidson, MD, FACS, Boston Plastic Surgeon)

Cost varies by whether they are saline or silicone. Make sure you are dealing with a board certified plastic surgeon. For saline implants coast start at $5,000. Silicone implants start at $6,500.

The cost for breast implants to enhance your breasts varies depending on where you live, the type of implants used (saline cost-$1000-1400; smooth silicone $1400-1800; and textured round $1400-2000; and shaped implants $2000-2400 for a pair), and whether the board certified Plastic Surgeon is an expert or a novice (fees run from $2500-6000), whether the surgery is performed in an office, surgicenter or hospital setting, and finally if its done with twilight or general anesthesia. The toal costs can range from $4500-10,000. (Laurie Casas, MD, Chicago Plastic Surgeon)

This all depends on where in the world you have the operation. The price is Australia and the US is higher than say Mexico and Thailand. The most important thing you need to consider is:

  1. Who is performing the operation. What is the follow up arrangement and the fee for revisional surgery.
  2. Where is the operation being performed? An accredited facility?
  3. What implant is being used? Make sure you get an itemised invoice from your surgeon and see how the cost is broken down.  (Pouria Moradi, MBBS, FRACS, Sydney Plastic Surgeon)

Replacing breast implants

Boob Enlargement Surgery With Dr G. Courtney Houston

No, you do not necessarily need to replace implants every 10 years. If you are happy enough with them and are having no problems, there’s no reason to replace them.

However in your case it sounds like you may benefit from a reoperation, possibly replacing the implants with gel or possibly a lift. (David Nicholas Csikai, MD, Jacksonville Plastic Surgeon)

Life of Breast Implants

In our practice we believe in replacing implants every 10-15 years. In our experience we are doing like that. (Jhonny Salomon, MD, Miami Plastic Surgeon)

Tallahassee Breast Implant Longevity

Breast implants are long-lasting but are not meant to “last a lifetime”. Implants may last for one year or may last for several decades. It is thought that the newer style silicone gel implants will likely last longer because they are made differently.

The outer shell is much more durable and the inner material is now a cohesive gel that is less likely to rupture and cause spillage like the first and second generations.

The implants currently being produced are of the fourth and fifth generation and have gone through several modifications over the years.

If you are experiencing changes in your breasts, then you should speak with your plastic surgeon regarding further investigative studies such as an MRI or an ultra sound.

If these studies indicate a possible rupture or disruption of the integrity of the implant then consideration for replacement should be made. (Michael D. Cohen, MD, Baltimore Plastic Surgeon)

How Long Do Breast Implants Last?

Both of your doctors are wrong! You only have to replace the implants when they rupture. They can last only a few years or a lifetime but we tell all patients they will always need another surgery at some point. (Kurtis Martin, MD, Cincinnati Plastic Surgeon)

There is No Single Number to Indicate How Long Breast Implants Will Last

There is no single number to indicate how long breast implants will last. There are many types of breast implants and consequently, there are different leakage rates for each one. All implants have an outer Silastic shell. It is within this shell that the contents are contained.

Some implants are saline filled and some are filled with silicone gel. The outer shell can be smooth or it can be textured. A textured surface is more of a roughened surface. In general, it is thought that the implants with the roughened surface have a slightly higher leakage rate than those with a smooth surface. It is commonly accepted that the most frequent cause of leakage is fold flaw. Fold flaw means a weakening along the edge of a natural fold of the implant. All implants are underfilled. This means that there is room for the contents to move back and forth, simulating a more natural breast-like feel.

Because of the natural folds that occur because of this, there is potential for weakening along these folds and subsequent leakage. If a saline implant leaks there is a rather rapid change in the size of the breasts. It becomes quite obvious in a short period of time that the saline has leaked out of the implant. A leak in a silicone implant is more difficult to determine. A person can have a small leak and have it not be noticed. To diagnose a silicone leak it is often necessary to perform an MRI. Consequently, there could be leakage rates associated with the silicone implants that are undiagnosed. Saline implants are filled by the surgeon at the time of surgery. If these implants are slightly overfilled by 10-15% one would expect that the leakage rate would be less. This would be due to the fact that there would be less inclination toward the fold flaw. Commonly quoted figures regarding implant leakage are 1% per year. That would indicate that in a ten-year period of time one out of ten breast implants would fail. In general, it is probably reasonable to assume that in the first ten years they probably will not leak. In the second ten years they might leak and in the third ten years they probably will leak. (John J. Edney, MD, Omaha Plastic Surgeon)

How to choose correct implant size

Doctor Alfredo A. Paredes Jr. Breast Implants

I am glad you asked this question because it is the key to whether or not you will be happy with your result. First, if the implant size and dimensions are in proportion to your frame, it will look natural and not like a stripper.

For any particular body frame, there are several implant styles, with varying sizes and proportions, that will fit that frame. So, you will have several different choices that will fit you, some will be slightly larger and some slightly smaller. This is where communication between you and your surgeon becomes critical.

The visual look that you want needs to be communicated to your surgeon. My office asks all our patients to bring in pictures of breast sizes and proprotions that both appeal and don’t appeal to the patient.

This helps me understand your aesthetic sense and is a valuable means of communication. In the office, after taking your measurements to find the implants that will fit your frame, we then try on different implants to see which ones you like.

We look at them in a bra and with different types of tops on to make sure they look good in the clothes your wear. We usually do these “sizing” visits 2 or 3 times, making sure you select the same implant each time.

By going to this effort prior to surgery insures that both the patient and I are very happy with the results. I also remind my patients and friends that the only people we know have breast implants are the ones who are “advertising” it. There are lots of women with breast implants and you would never guess it. (Tracy Pfeifer, MD, Manhattan Plastic Surgeon)

Breast implant size

How to determine breast implant size images

Breast implant size in Tallahassee is determined by both your plastic surgeon (board certified) and you the patient. The implant should conform to your particular anatomy and body type. The implant can only be as large as your tissues/skin will accomodate. Often times patients want large implants that don’t necessarily correspond to their body type or are too large for the skin envelope or tissues.

There are certain measurements your surgeon will take such as breast width, which help guide the implant selection process. Once you have agreed upon a range of implant sizes based on your anatomy, the surgeon should use a sizer or a temporary implant that is inserted during the actual surgery to assess the elasticity of your tissues. This sizer helps to guide the ultimate size selection and helps to accurately shape and develop the pocket where the implant will reside. Please consult with one or more local plastic surgeons to discuss which size is best for you.

You may also try on some of the different size implants before hand in the office to get a rough idea of how the implants will look when completed. (William Bruno, MD, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon)

Choosing the right size implant

I feel that the patient needs to be educated to make the best decision possible when choosing implant size in Tallahassee. I encourage my patients to bring in a picture, or pick out a picture from our photo album, of what they are looking for.

I will measure their breast width to determine what profile best suits their frame, and will go over the differences in the profiles of the implants as far as diameter and projection to educate her. We will then “try on” a series of implant samples in a bra to determine what size she is most happy with. This gives me a starting point to know what volume, projection and diameter she is looking for and what will suit her frame. Ultimately, the choice is hers. (Amy T. Bandy, DO, FACS, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon)
