How much does breast augmentation cost?
The average cost of breast augmentation surgery is $4,516, according to the most recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This average cost is only part of the total price – it does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses. Please consult with your plastic surgeon's office to determine your final fee.
A surgeon's fee for breast augmentation will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used and the geographic office location.
Many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans for breast augmentation, so be sure to ask.
Breast augmentation costs may include:
- Anesthesia fees
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Medical tests
- Post-surgery garments
- Prescriptions for medication
- Surgeon's fee
When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for breast augmentation, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
Breast augmentation and health insurance
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.
Carefully review your health insurance policy before having your breast augmentation.
