Breast augmentation costs
|Breast Augmentation |
The average cost of breast augmentation surgery is $3,543. That is the national average surgeon/physician fee according to 2012 statistics from ASPS.
Breast augmentation costs may vary. The average fee referenced above does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.
A surgeon's fee for breast augmentation may vary based on his or her experience, the type and cost of breast implants used, as well as geographic office location.
Many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask. As an elective surgery, the cost of breast augmentation is a consideration for many patients.
Breast augmentation costs may include:
- Surgeon’s fee
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Anesthesia fees
- Breast implant cost
- Prescriptions for medication
- Post-surgery garments
- Medical tests
When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon for breast augmentation surgery, remember that the surgeon's experience with breast implants and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
Breast Augmentation Surgery and Insurance Coverage
Most health insurance plans will not cover cosmetic breast augmentation costs, related complications or another surgery to revise the appearance of your breasts.
Some carriers even exclude breast diseases in patients who have breast implants.
You must carefully review your health insurance policy.
