Breast Augmentation

Augmentation Mammaplasty

Breast augmentation is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness and improve symmetry of the breasts, or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy.

Breast augmentation cost

The average cost of breast augmentation surgery is $3,708, according to 2014 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The average cost for removal of breast implants was $2,330 in 2014. 

If you are a breast augmentation candidate, please remember that costs can vary. The average fees referenced above do not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.

A surgeon's fee for breast augmentation surgery 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 for breast augmentation surgery, so be sure to ask.  

Breast augmentation cost may include:

  • Anesthesia fees
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Medical tests
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Surgeon's fee

Your satisfication involves more than a fee. When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area 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 health 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.
