Breast augmentation is primarily an elective cosmetic surgery procedure performed with an aim to increase the breast size. Patients will usually not be eligible for insurance coverage for this procedure.
For this reason, the procedure price tag is a vital starting point for a majority of patients. But it is recommended for patients to identify the best possible surgeon and procedure for their requirements, and the cost of the surgery should only be a secondary factor in this decision.
During the initial consultation, the surgeon will explain the advantages and limitations of breast enhancement to the patient and offer them cost estimates. With clear information, the patient is able to make a better decision.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides breast implant surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Factors Affecting the Sticker Price
Breast augmentation surgery costs may vary between two practices and even between two patients at the same practice. The below-mentioned factors will impact the procedure costs:
Geographical Location of the Practice
The average living costs are usually higher in major metropolitan cities and busy urban centers compared to smaller towns located in interior locations. Multiple factors such as median household income, employment opportunities, real estate costs, and local taxation affect the cost of living in a particular area.
This factors impacts the costs of products and services in the region, including the costs of plastic surgery procedures, such as breast enhancement.
A skilled and experienced plastic surgeon may charge higher fees in comparison to a new or relatively inexperienced surgeon working under the guidance of a senior surgeon.
Board certified plastic surgeons usually adopt cutting-edge surgical techniques and technologies. They all follow the latest safety protocols while pursing continuing education to upgrade their knowledge and skills.
Anesthesia and Surgical Facility Costs
The patient will require the services of an anesthesiologist or a certified anesthetist nurse if the breast enlargement plastic surgery is undertaken using general anesthesia.
They will oversee the complete procedure to assess the patient’s response to the anesthetic and may charge on a per hour basis. Their fee will typically reflect their qualifications and experience.
The breast enhancement procedure may be performed at an accredited surgery center, a private surgical facility, or a hospital. Each option has associated advantages and costs, and this will affect the overall costs of the procedure.
Breast Implant Costs
A key element in breast augmentation surgery costs is the cost of breast implants. Traditional saline implants typically cost less in comparison to silicone implants.
Certain new qualities in ultra cohesive silicone implants will cost more, but will provide the patient with superior value. The choice of an implant will affect the overall costs of the breast enhancement procedure.
Insurance and Financing
The patient will be able to receive insurance coverage only if the breast augmentation surgery is being performed as an element of reconstructive surgery after a mastectomy. In other cases, they will have to pay for the procedure out of pocket. Patients may benefit from the various available financing options offering them the convenience of making payments in convenient monthly installments.
