breast augmentation cost

The cost of breast augmentation is affected by several factors. The surgeon’s fee, the OR/anesthesia fees, postop garments (like a bra), cosmetic insurance and of course the cost of the implants (saline or silicone). Experience of the surgeon may affect the cost but that’s harder to quantify. Here’s a breakdown of these costs for my practice:

Surgeon’s Fee: $2200
OR time: 1.5 hours
OR/anesthesia cost: $1275
Implant costs: $1850 (silicone), $1300 (saline)
Garment costs: $150
Cosmetic insurance costs: $300

Total Cost: $5775 for silicone, $5225 for saline

Prices vary across the country as you can see in this 2014 Pricing Report. Breast augmentation tends to be most expensive in the northeast and least expensive in the south. If you would like more pricing information for a plastic surgeon near you, check out www.buildmybod.com/pricing
