If you’re interested in undergoing a breast augmentation procedure, you probably have plenty of questions. For example, what cup size do you want? Do you want silicone or saline implants? How long is the recovery process?
While these are common questions, there’s one question that everyone asks during their consultation: “How much does a breast augmentation cost?”
Unfortunately, there isn’t a simple answer; this is because there are so many different factors that go into the cost of a breast augmentation.
Let’s take a quick look at all the factors that can influence how much you would pay for a breast augmentation:
- The type of implant: There are many different types of implants for you to choose from, and each implant type has a different price point. Silicone implants are often more expensive than saline implants. Implants with better warranties will cost more.
- The extras: In addition to the surgeon’s fees and implants, the final cost of a breast augmentation will include general anesthesia, an operating room, and pain management systems. You should fully understand the final cost of a breast augmentation and everything included in that cost.
- The location: Some areas will be pricier than others; for example, the cost of a breast augmentation in San Francisco is more expensive than, say, Rhode Island.
With these factors in mind, patients can expect the final cost of a breast augmentation to range from $5,000 to $10,000.
