What’s the Total Cost of a Breast Augmentation?

Published by Aubrey Sohaney

When it comes to choosing a surgeon for breast augmentation, the total cost is often one of the primary considerations for women.

You may be wondering— What does the procedure cost on average? What can influence the price? And what are some of the additional costs associated with breast augmentation surgery? 

In this blog post, we’ll outline everything you need to know about the costs associated with breast enhancement surgery. 

What Does Breast Augmentation Cost?

The cost of breast augmentation surgery can vary widely. However, in general, the average price of the procedure falls between $4,000 and $10,000. 

However, several factors can influence the cost of this type of breast procedure. These include:

Type of Implants Used

Two primary breast implants are used in breast augmentation surgery: saline and silicone. Silicone implants typically cost more than saline implants. However, the cost of the implant itself is only a tiny part of the overall cost of the procedure.

Operating Room and Anesthesia

The cost of the operating room and anesthesia is usually factored into the overall cost of the procedure. However, the price can vary depending on the surgeon and the surgery’s facility.

Surgeon’s Fee

The surgeon’s fee is the most significant cost associated with any type of cosmetic surgery. This fee will vary depending on the surgeon’s experience and location.

Post-Surgery Costs

There are several additional costs associated with breast augmentation surgery. These include:

  • Follow-up visits with the surgeon
  • Prescriptions for pain medication and antibiotics
  • Garments to support the breasts during healing
  • Lab tests
  • X-rays

Breast augmentation is major surgery, and, as with any surgery, there are associated risks and complications. Be sure to discuss these with your surgeon before proceeding with the procedure. 

While cost is always a significant consideration, it is essential to remember that breast augmentation is surgery and should only be performed by a qualified, experienced surgeon. When choosing a surgeon, ask about their experience, training, and credentials to ensure you’re in good hands. 

Additional Procedures

Sometimes breast augmentation surgery is performed with other procedures, such as a breast lift or a tummy tuck. When this is the case, the overall cost of the surgery will be higher.

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
