How much are breast implants?
The cost of breast implants varies widely depending on your market, style of implant, implant fill, if you are a straight forward breast augmentation or if you need any additional work for asymmetry, lifting, etc.
In our area, for example, a standard saline breast augmentation ranges in price from $4500 – $5500, and for silicone you can expect about $1000 more. If you opt for the “gummy bear” implants, this can add another $500 to $1000. (Suzanne M. Quardt, MD, Palm Springs Plastic Surgeon)
Cost of Breast Implants Varies
The cost of breast implants varies, depending on surgeon expertise, where the surgeon is located, and the type of implant used (saline versus silicone, round versus anatomic).
The total cost typically includes the surgeon’s fees, the anesthesia fees, and the surgery center fees. In the Dallas area, the total fees may range from $5000-$7500.
Although cost is a factor in every patient’s decision, I would caution anyone from making a decision based solely on cost.
Make sure your doctor is a board certified plastic surgeon who understands your needs and concerns. (Farah Naz Khan, MD, Dallas Plastic Surgeon)
Breast Implant Cost
You are not alone in asking about it because it is a great way to improve how you look and feel about yourself! It takes about an hour and is an outpatient procedure which means you go home the same day.
There is some discomfort for the first week and you look great immediately! Before you know it, you will love how you fit in clothing and bathing-suits!
We can perform 3D imaging in the office at your consultation to get an idea of what you will look like after the procedure.
A breast augmentation, including the OR fee, Anesthesia, and all my care is $4,812 for a saline augmentation and a bit more for silicone. (K. Roxanne Grawe, MD, Columbus Plastic Surgeon)
Breast implant costs
The cost of breast augmentation in Toronto ranges between $7000-9000 depending on the type of implant used. The cost you are quoted by a surgeon should include the following:
- Surgeon fees-OR rental and supplies
- Anesthesia care
- Implant cost
- Follow up care
The price differential is predominantly due to the prices of the implants themselves. Saline implants are approximately $1000 less expensive than cohesive gel implants, and shaped implants are about $600 more expensive. Its important to talk to your surgeon about the cost of surgery and what is included. (Kunaal Jindal, MD, Toronto Plastic Surgeon)
Cost of Breast Implants
The cost of breast augmentation can vary a great deal in a given community. Be sure that cost is not your primary reason for choosing a plastic surgeon. That being said some doctors will list their prices online and most will give the information over the phone assuming you don’t need a lift or additional procedures. (Bradley A. Hubbard, MD, Dallas Plastic Surgeon)
While cost is an important question to ask, it is even more important to make sure your doctor is a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation surgery. Look at before and after photos of patients on whom the doctor has performed breast augmentation and speak with patients who have had a breast augmentation performed by that doctor.
Once you choose a doctor with whom you feel comfortable and whose results you like, I suggest using computer imaging (e.g., VECTRA) to assist with size selection. After you have done this, then I recommend focusing on costs. Be sure to accurately compare price estimates asking about all fees (e.g., surgeon, implants, garments, facility/operating room, recovery, anesthesia). (Adam Schaffner, MD, FACS, New York Plastic Surgeon)
Cost of breast implants varies depending on a number of considerations.
There are many different factors that affect the total cost of your breast implants, including whether you choose saline, silicone or gummy bear implants and whether additional procedures (such as a breast lift) are included at the same time. Your surgeon’s fee will vary by region and practice, and you’ll also be paying for your anesthesiologist and the surgical facility.
RealSelf puts the average cost for breast implants in Newport Beach (where my practice is located) at $5750, which is just under the U.S. average of $6075. However, don’t forget to look at the big picture when comparing surgeons and prices, as choosing the safest and most skilled surgeon for your breast augmentation should take priority over the biggest savings.
