Having cosmetic breast surgery can be a significant cost investment. Most people, tend to save up money for months, even years to afford to pay for their breast surgeries.
Being such an important personal and monetary investment, it is important to know what true costs are actually involved in your procedure. There are multiple factors that determine how much the surgery costs.
The final costs for breast surgeries are usually based on the following factors:
- The surgeon’s fee
- The facility or hospital fee
- Anesthesia fee
- Implants (for augmentations)
- Laboratory fee
- Post-operative garment
- Prescription costs
What type of Breast Surgeries Are There?
There are several different types of breast surgery:
- Breast lift – Lifts and reshapes sagging and droopy breasts
- Breast lift with implants – Limits scars, adds volume, and lifts breasts
- Breast augmentation – increases the size and volume of the breasts
- Male breast reduction – Treats gynecomastia, or “man-boobs” (male breast tissue excess)
- Male pectoral implants- Increases the size of the male chest
- Breast reduction – Reduces the size shape of large breasts and decreases pain
- Breast reconstruction after mastectomy for breast cancer
With each breast procedure, there are several surgical decisions that need to be determined in advance, like the location of your incision, implant placement above or below the muscle, the type of implants used, and how they are inserted.
The risks and benefits of each decision will be made and weighed against achieving your post-operative goals and aspirations. You will be given time to see before and after photos, have your questions answered, and learn about your procedure.
The Cost of Breast Procedures Varies by Type
