Breast augmentation requires a healthy amount of planning. This includes a search for a qualified and trusted plastic surgeon, a strategy for transportation and aftercare, and management of valuable time set aside for recovery. But for most people, one of the most important conversations related to surgery is on the topic of cost.
Here are 3 main things to consider:
- Your implant type will affect your total price. At my clinic, silicone gel implants are about $1,000 more than saline implants (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 an implant based upon their desired outcome and not this price difference. For more on the difference between silicone and saline, read this post.
- 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, a typical patient will save about $1,000 in total.
- 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 surgery 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.
