We tell the women who visit us for breast augmentation in Toronto and Mississauga that breast surgery requires a healthy amount of planning. They need to search for a qualified and trusted Royal College-certified plastic surgeon, create a strategy for transportation and aftercare, and manage valuable time set aside for recovery. But for most people, one of the most important conversations related to surgery is on the topic of how much breast augmentation costs. In this post, I review 3 important considerations regarding the cost of breast augmentation in Toronto and Mississauga.
1. Your breast implant type will affect your total price.
At my clinic, silicone gel implants cost about $1,000 more than saline implants cost (about $7,950 total compared with $6,900, although prices vary based upon individual treatment plans). The increase is set by the manufacturers and is due, among other factors, to the fact that silicone is simply more expensive to make. I advise my patients to decide on a breast implant based upon their desired outcome and not this price difference. For more on the difference between silicone and saline breast implants, read this post.
2. You can save money by combining procedures.
Many of my patients maximize their results by combining multiple procedures. The savings are achieved through less overall OR and post-op clinic time and by avoiding multiple fees for anesthesia. For example, by combining a tummy tuck and breast augmentation surgeries at our Toronto plastic surgery clinic, considered a Mommy Makeover, a typical patient will save about $1,000 over having the procedures performed separately.
3. Financing help is available.
We take extra care to make our services as affordable and attainable as possible. A significant portion of our patients finance their breast augmentation surgery cost using Medicard and Credit Medical. The approval steps are simple, and my staff is more than happy to lend a hand throughout the entire process.
