Cost for breast implants
The average cost of breast augmentation varies from each region of the country. And in the Midwest typically ranges from $5000-$7000. This would include the cost of the implants, anesthesia, facility fees, and surgeon fees.
Also, implant costs can vary depending on whether they are saline or silicone devices. The newer hyper-cohesive or gummy bear implants are even more expensive and can impact the final price as well. Although some doctors will advertise rates that are significantly lower, these usually have hidden costs and are often not performed by surgeons certified by the American board of plastic surgeons.
It is also important to understand that not all patients are good candidates for breast implantation alone and may require additional procedures which would alter the final cost. (Melek Kayser, MD, Detroit Plastic Surgeon)
Breast Implant Cost
Breast augmentation cost do vary depending on your geographic location. Other factors do include the brand and type of implant that is used. In Australia there is a significant variation and finding a surgeon can be difficult.
I suggest if you are based in Australia that you see a plastic and reconstructive surgeon in your area that you are comfortable with or Contact NIB options who will be able to locate a qualified plastic surgeon who could assist you. (Vijith Vijayasekaran, MBBS, FRACS, Perth Plastic Surgeon)
The price for saline breast implants is 5000.00 and the price for silicone breast implants is 6000.00. This price includes your consultation, surgery, anesthesia and all of your postoperative visits.
There is an additional charge if you need a nipple areola complex lift. As always, it is important to consider the level of experience of your surgeon and look at many before and after photos when deciding the type of implant that is best for you. Consult your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to discuss your breast implant goals. (Christopher J. Morea, MD, Raleigh-Durham Plastic Surgeon)
Cost Of Implants
The cost of breast augmentation surgery depends on the type of implant (Saline vs Cohesive silicone Gel), where the incision is placed (Infra-mammary, periareolar, Trans-umbilical or axillary), type of anesthesia (local, local and sedation, general anesthesia). The average cost in my practice with most patients being somewhere in the middle is $4800 to $8000. (Michael Constantin Gartner, DO, Paramus Plastic Surgeon)
Cost of breast implants
Breast augmentation cost varies on the region that you are in and between surgeons. Saline implants cost less than silicone, however, silicone are used more often than saline nowadays. The cost can range from as low as $3500 total for saline in some markets and up to $9000-$10000 total depending on the surgeon’s demand and location. The average cost throughout the US today per RealSelf is $6525. The range for a silicone breast augmentation in the Los Angeles and Beverly Hills area is $5000-$9000. Keep in mind that the cheapest surgery, is the one that is done correctly the first time. So don’t chose your plastic surgeon solely based on cost. Make sure they are actually a plastic surgeon that has lots of experience with breast augmentation. (Luis H. Macias, MD, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon)
Cost of breast augmentation
Silicone breast implants cost around $8000 – in my office they are $7700. This includes the surgery fee, 2 hours of the operating room, 2 hours of anesthesia, the implants themselves which are around $1800 and all pre and post operative visits. I include the surgical bra, and a Keller funnel which allows for a “no touch” technique of placing the implants as a gift to the patient.
Saline implants are slightly less because the implants cost less.I tell my patients that although the implants are expensive, the implant company I use, Mentor will replace the both implants if there is a leak and if the leak occurs before the 10 year warranty, they will also help provide money towards OR and anesthesia.
In general, I recommend you seek consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who has extensive experience with breast augmentation. It is important you find someone who you feel communicates with you well and has a good understanding of what you hope to achieve. (Catherine Huang-Begovic, MD, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon)
