Average Cost of Breast Enlargement Surgery - Payment Concerns
By Patricia Berbari on July 05, 2013
One of the most popular cosmetic surgery treatments the world over is breast augmentation. Using breast implants for enlargement purposes can really work wonders for your figure and your overall body contour. By meeting with a skilled plastic surgeon, you can find out how these plastic surgery options can greatly enhance your overall appearance.
Yet many patients have questions regarding the total cost of surgery and if there are options for payment that might put the surgery within reach. The team at our practice would like to take a few moments to go over some of the basics of these cost concerns right now.
About Breast Augmentation Surgery
First, let's briefly describe the surgery since some of this has bearing on cost. During the breast augmentation procedure, breast implants are introduced into the breast pocket in order to enhance size, shape, and overall contour. The type of breast implants used and the location of the incisions will vary based on the aesthetic goals of the patient.
Average Cost of Breast Augmentation Surgery
The average cost of breast augmentation can actually vary a fair amount from patient to patient and from practice to practice. Because there is no fixed cost, the price can range anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000.
Keep in mind that this range is NOT necessarily what your breast augmentation will cost. We don't think that this price range is really indicative of the whole picture, so it's important that patients come to our practice to receive a personalized price quote.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Breast Augmentation Surgery
Some of the factors that affect the total cost of breast augmentation surgery include:
- The geographic location of the cosmetic surgery center
- The cosmetic surgeons at the practice and their credentials
- The complexity of the patient's case
- Special surgical techniques or technologies used
- Discounts or promotions specific to an individual practice
Financing Options for Breast Augmentation Surgery
Obviously not all patients will be able to pay for surgery in cash. For that reason there are financing options and payment plans for breast augmentation surgery. It helps to think of these financing options in the same way as a credit card. A trusted third-party lender will pay for the total cost of the surgery upfront, and the patient will be responsible for repaying the lender on a monthly basis. A reasonable interest rate will apply.
It should be noted that these financing plans also apply to other procedures, such as breast lift surgery, facial rejuvenation surgery, and body sculpting treatments. Cosmetic surgery financing puts a number of life-changing procedures within your reach.
Weighing All of Your Options
Before you undergo any surgery, we will be sure to discuss all of your aesthetic treatment options as well as what payment options might be right for you. It's important that patients feel happy and confident about all decisions they make regarding surgery, not just the cosmetics of the final results.
