The price of breast implants vary.
There are several factors that determine the price of breast augmentation surgery. The price varies depending upon geographic location and type of implant used.
The price tag for a breast augmentation doesn’t only include surgeon’s fees and the price of the implants; you are also paying for the anesthesiologist and fees for the facility where the procedure is done.
Choosing an experienced surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will guarantee a high standard of care for an optimal outcome.
Ask to view before and after photos of a prospective surgeon for a documented example of technique and results. Breast augmentation surgery that is priced very high or very low compared to the average for your region should be avoided. (Frank Campanile, MD, Denver Plastic Surgeon)
Breast Implants prices
There are prices involved in performing breast augmentation that often the plastic surgeon has no control over. These prices include the fees for the operating room facility, the fees of the anesthesiologist, and the fixed price of the breast implants.
Usually, the costs associated with the use of the operating facility and the fees by the anesthesiologist run according to the time it takes to perform the breast augmentation. The longer the procedure, the higher the costs for these services.
Also, breast implants can vary significantly in prices, with silicone gel implants costing significantly more than saline implants. A person interested in having breast augmentation can only imagine how, with these combination of fees, it is even possible for a breast augmentation procedure to be offered at an extremely low price.
There are several reasons why that could be. One reason could be that the procedure is not being done in a certified surgical facility that meets all of the local and state requirements for safety and sterility. Another reason could be that the anesthesia is not being delivered and supervised by a board certified anesthesiologist. My fees for breast augmentation are very competitive for the Houston market. They are not “bottom of the barrel” because I operate at a certified surgical facility, and I work with an anesthesiologist who is responsible for the safety of the patient while she is under general anesthesia.
My global fee (including the fees for facility and anesthesia) run from $5500 for saline implants to $6700 for silicone gel implants. Be sure that your surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and that he/she maintains the highest standards of safety when planning and performing your breast augmentation. Best of luck! (Paul Fortes, MD, Houston Plastic Surgeon)
Price of a breast augmentation
There are a lot of factors that can determine pricing of a breast augmentation. Some of the prices can depend on the surgeon, the geographic location and the type of implants that are used. The cost for a breast augmentation may include: surgeon’s fee, anesthesia fees, surgical facility fees, prescription medications and medical tests such as labs or a mammogram.
At my office, located in Draper, Utah, I charge around 5200.00 for a silicone breast augmentation. This price includes: surgeon’s fees, anesthesia, surgical facility fees and supplies and all of your follow up visits. Although prices are very important, it is just as important to find a board-certified plastic surgeon that has experience with good outcomes. (Steven H. Warnock, MD, Draper Plastic Surgeon)
Prices of implants and breast augmentation
Implants vary in price – with saline being about one thousand less expensive than silicone, and the gummy bear anatomic shaped with generation implants about 200 more than round silicone. I usually charge 4000 surgical fee and anesthesia and facility fees that all together can range from 6000 to 8500 depending on options, techniques, rapid recovery technique etc.
And that comes with my invested interest in my patient all the through the first year and beyond. Price savings should be scruntinized and assured that board certified plastic surgeon with experience is managing your augmentation. Long term results and happy patients start from the get go at the initial operation, thats where you invest in for the best long term satisfaction and results! (Christopher S. Verbin, MD, Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon)
