How much do breast implants cost?
Saline augmentation in the Atlanta area costs anywhere from $3800-5500. Silicone augmentation costs about $2000 more. The “cheapest” in town are usually NOT plastic surgeons!
Be sure you see a surgeon who is specifically certified by the American Board of PLASTIC Surgery (NOT a “cosmetic surgeon”- that could be your gynecologist who has decided to start doing implants). (Carmen Kavali, MD, Atlanta Plastic Surgeon)
Cost of Breast Implants depends on several factors
In Toronto the cost for the cheapest breast implants (saline, round, smooth implants) starts at about $4500 and can go up to $8000.
Silicone implant breast augmentations tend to be about $2000 more expensive than saline.
The cost of breast implant surgery depends on the following factors: type of implant: saline is cheaper than silicone, round implants are cheaper than shaped ones type of surgery: some surgeons may have different prices based on how complicated the surgery is need for a breast lift: if a breast lift is needed for sagging breasts, that adds to the cost of breast implant surgery facility: some facilities have higher fees.
While a higher fee doesn’t imply a better quality facility, you should investigate the facility just as much as you research your surgeon surgeon: if your breast implant surgery fee seems like a really good deal, make sure your surgeon is board certified plastic surgeon.
There is no discount big enough for you to risk your outcome or your life (Martin Jugenburg, MD, Toronto Plastic Surgeon)

Know what you’re paying for
What is most important is that you find a surgeon that is certified and accredited. Some offices, like mine have their own surgical suites and perform surgeries on premises. It is very important to know the accreditation levels of these surgical facilities.
That being said you want to keep in the price to run a accredited facility and maintain the caliber of care you require. It is possible that surgeons with more experience and training could have higher surgical fees. Keep in mind that you are putting a large amount of faith and trust in your surgeon and you need to be sure of all the details of your surgery. There are many things that affect price like the kind of implants you choose and how much OR and anesthesia you will need. (Joseph G. Bauer, MD, FACS, Atlanta Plastic Surgeon)

Be sure to look at complete cost of breat implants
You must be sure you are comparing apples to apples not apples to oranges. Total out of pocket fees include: Surgeon’s fee, anesthesia fee, facility fee, implant costs, blood & urine tests, Rx’s, post operative bra.
Not included is if a mammogram is required or requested (lowest screening mammogram in Miami $80). So with all those charges added together, the range in Miami from my limited survey is
- For saline implants from $2800 to $6000
- For silicone implants from $4800 to $8500
I hope this gives you an idea as to how difficult it is to get an exact cost. No matter what area of the US you live in. I know personally the #1 breast implant surgeon in the US (from Miami) was charging $5500 for salines, now he charges $3900. This is good for the patient due to the economy’s downturn. (Darryl J. Blinski, MD, Miami Plastic Surgeon)
