Breast implants costs
How much do breast implants cost?
This a very common question and really depends on where you are, who your surgeon is and what type of implants your are getting. In the Northeast, where I am, they usually range from $6000 to $9000 and include anesthesia and procedure room.
Silicone implants are about $1000 more than saline. Price will also be based on experience and demand for a particular surgeon. As with everything, you probably don’t want to go with the cheapest one you can find. You may end up paying more in the long run fixing complications. Find a surgeon that you can trust, who will spend time with you, and give you good advice on what is best for you. If you find you are rushed or being “sold to” then you should probably look elsewhere. (Adam Hamawy, MD, Princeton Plastic Surgeon)
The answer depends on which type of implant you choose, the facility charge where you have the surgery, the length of the operation and how much the surgeon charges for his or her fee. It is best to contact several local board certified plastic surgeons to determine what your local fees might be. (Mark Deutsch, MD, Atlanta Plastic Surgeon)
Breast implant surgery, all inclusive, can typically cost anywhere from $5000 – $10,000. There are surgeons who offer it for less, but cheaper is not better, and finding the best deal is not something I would focus on when choosing a qualified surgeon.
It is important to understand what is included in the price – there is a surgeon’s fee, anesthesiologist fee, surgery center fee, implant fee, and then any other added expenses which could include labs, mammograms, or an evaluation for surgery by your primary care doctor.
Please remember that price is only one aspect of cosmetic surgery – finding a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon who operates in accredited facilities with certified anesthesia providers is very important, as is your overall communication with the surgeon and staff who will be taking care of you from beginning to end.

Breast Augmentation prices
The price for breast augmentation will vary depending on surgeon, experience, and geographic region. Also, silicone implants will cost more than saline implants (but in my opinion totally worth the added cost).
You should expect to spend about $8,000 to $10,000 in NYC. Obviously the prices can be cheaper other places and I am perplexed about some of the ridiculously low prices that are advertised here. If it sounds too good to be true.. (Matthew Schulman, MD, New York Plastic Surgeon)

Advice re cost of breast implants
Please, please, please do your research, ensure your surgeon is fully accredited and insured in the country that you are in.
Read reviews, and ask to speak to other patients, which is far better than just looking at an album of someone’s best results! Costs will vary like anything based on multiple factors including location, cost of implants, hospital Costs, anaesthetist costs, daycase or overnight. In the UK, in my practice the costs of breast augmentation varies from 4295-5495. (Sultan Hassan, MD, FRCS(Plast), London Plastic Surgeon)
