What Determines The Cost Of Breast Augmentation?
One of the first questions patients have when they decide to have a breast augmentation is: How much does it cost? To answer this, the price of breast augmentation varies based on a variety of factors.
Firstly, the type of implant is the main determiner of breast augmentation price. Saline implants are the lowest cost, while anatomical gummy bear implants come with the highest. This is because gummy bear implants are filled with a cohesive silicone gel that is less likely to rupture and provide natural looking results. A saline implant costs less because they contain only a silicone shell that Dr. Sajan fills during surgery.
Secondly, breast augmentation cost depends on if you require other surgical procedures. For example, many women undergo a breast augmentation and a breast lift at the same time. This procedure–a breast augmentation with lift–is priced differently to account for the variance in surgical technique.
Finally, if you currently have breast implants that you would like to remove or correct, this is known as a breast revision. Even if new implants are placed, the surgical techniques and supplies needed for a breast revision differ from a breast augmentation procedure and therefore are priced separately.
