Breast augmentation cost

The average cost of breast augmentation surgery is $3,719, according to 2016 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The average cost for removal of breast implants was $2,506 in 2016.

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 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.
