Breast Augmentation Cost
According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the 2007 national average for surgeon/physician fees for breast augmentation were $4,087 (silicone gel breast implants) and $3,690 (saline breast implants).
These averages do not include other surgical factors that play a role in the overall cost of breast augmentation surgery. Additional charges vary and include fees for the surgical facility, anesthesia, location where the procedure is being performed, popularity/experience of the surgeon, and a number of other aspects associated with breast augmentation.
Remember, in most cases breast enlargement is considered a cosmetic surgery; therefore, your insurance company may not cover the procedure. However, if you are seeking the procedure as a result if a mastectomy or to correct an asymmetry problem, you may want to check with your insurance provider to learn if you qualify for coverage.
Interested in breast augmentation, but not sure if you can afford it? You're not alone. Many patients seek the assistance of patient financing to pay for their plastic surgery procedures. By doing so, you can obtain a loan and work out a payment plan that you are comfortable with, all while enjoying your new breast implants.
