For many women, one of the most significant considerations when deciding whether to undergo breast augmentation surgery is the cost. In this blog post, we will discuss the average cost of breast augmentation and the factors that influence how much you will pay for your procedure.

The Average Cost of Breast Augmentation

The cost of breast augmentation varies widely depending on the location, the surgeon’s experience, and the type of breast implants used. According to recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of breast augmentation in the United States is $4,516 for the surgeon’s fee alone. This does not include the cost of anesthesia, operating room facilities, or other related expenses.

Factors That Influence the Cost of Breast Augmentation

When people ask us, online or over the phone, “How much is a breast augmentation?” unfortunately, we can’t provide an accurate answer. This is because there are many factors that affect an individual’s actual breast augmentation cost.

Type of Implants

There is also no simple answer to the question “How much do breast implants cost?” because there is a fairly wide price range. There are two main types of breast implants: saline and silicone. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water and are less expensive than silicone implants. Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel and are more expensive. The cost of breast implants can range from $1,000 to $3,000 per implant, depending on the type and brand. Your surgeon will help you determine which implants are best for you.

Surgeon’s Experience and Credentials

The surgeon’s experience and credentials also affect the cost of breast augmentation. A highly experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Cutolo will likely charge more for their services than a less experienced or non-certified surgeon. It is essential to choose a surgeon who has experience performing breast augmentation surgery and has a good reputation for producing natural-looking results.

Anesthesia and Facility Fees

The cost of anesthesia and facility fees is another significant factor that influences the overall cost of breast augmentation. These fees can vary depending on the location and type of facility where the procedure is performed. Generally, breast augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. You’ll want to ensure your surgeon performs procedures at a fully accredited surgery center or has full operating privileges at respected local hospitals.

Geographic Location

The cost of breast augmentation can vary depending on the geographic location where the procedure is performed. For example, the cost of breast augmentation in New York City may be higher than in a smaller town in a rural area.

Additional Procedures

In some cases, additional procedures may be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation, such as a breast lift. Complementary procedures can increase the overall cost of your operation.

The cost of breast augmentation can vary widely depending on a variety of factors. The best way to find out how much your ideal breast augmentation will cost is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
