Breast Augmentation Prices and Payment Options
By Dr. Suzanne Yee on August 16, 2013
One of the most popular options out there for advanced aesthetic enhancement is breast augmentation surgery. By getting breast implants placed, you can enhance your curves and look your very best in the process. The surgery is not inexpensive, however, which is why it's so important that you meet with a skilled plastic surgeon to discuss the overall cost of surgery and your many different options for payment.
About Breast Augmentation
During a breast augmentation, a plastic surgeon places breast implants to increase the size of the breast while also improving the shape and overall contour in the process. There are many different surgical options when it comes to breast enlargement, from the incisions used to the type of breast implant that would be most ideal for the patient.
The Average Cost of Breast Implants
The average cost of breast implants can actually vary a great deal. It's for that reason that we don't believe providing a national average cost for breast augmentation or even a basic price range for the surgery will paint a full picture of what to expect. It's best that you meet with a cosmetic plastic surgeon for a personal consultation. By doing this, you will be able to receive the exact answers that you need regarding the cost of surgery that are unique to your situation.
Factors That Affect the Total Cost of Breast Augmentation
Some of the common factors that affect breast augmentation surgery include:
- The location of the plastic surgery center
- The training/credentials of the plastic surgeon
- The complexity of the patient's case
- The surgical method and type of breast implants used
- Combination surgeries/treatments
- Special promotions that are unique to a practice
Does health insurance cover breast implants?
By and large, health insurance does not cover breast implants because they are generally considered cosmetic an thereby elective in nature. With this in mind, there are some exceptions. It's ideal to meet with a cosmetic surgeon about these matters and to discuss such issues with your insurance provider as well.
Financing Options for Breast Augmentation
Since the total cost of breast augmentation surgery can prove a financial burden for many households, there are financing options out there that can assist with payment. These financing options are much like credit cards in a lot of ways.
A trusted third-party lender will work with you and your cosmetic surgeon. The total cost of surgery will be taken care of by this lender and the patient will then pay back the lender on a monthly basis. Reasonable interest rates will apply to the total cost of the loan.
