How much does breast augmentation cost

Have you wanted bigger breasts for a long time, and finally decided to take the plunge?  You’re not alone. Breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgeries in the US.  Women that undergo the procedure are generally satisfied and more confident after surgery.  But how much does breast augmentation cost?

How much does breast augmentation cost

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of breast augmentation surgery is $3,824, but the procedure can cost as much as $12,000.

The cost of breast augmentation is variable because there are several factors that can affect the final price, including the type of implants, surgery-related fees, and the surgeon’s fee. 

Type of implants

Silicone and saline implants are the two main types of implants used for breast augmentation.  Silicone implants are a popular choice because they look a lot like natural breasts. However, they are more expensive than saline implants.

Surgery related fees

Surgery related fees such as the anesthesia fee, surgical facility fee, and the cost of post-surgery garments and medications, can all impact the cost of breast augmentation.

Surgeon’s fee

The level of experience of the surgeon influences the cost of breast augmentation, because highly experienced surgeons may charge more for their expertise.    However, when selecting a plastic surgeon for breast augmentation, it is always necessary to consider their certification, experience, and reputation for delivering successful outcomes, and not just cost.  

If you are planning to have breast augmentation surgery, be sure to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.  The surgeon will provide a detailed cost breakdown based on your specific requirements.
