Wow! That's a pretty incredible price! It's also incredible that there are PS for whom under $4,000 is a going rate. The doctors I researched in my area charge anywhere between $7,500 and $10,000. (My husband said no way to $10,000 doctor) I have a feeling that the doctor I am zeroing in on will run about $ 8,000 after it's said and done. I hope he gives discount for all cash offer.

You have to remember that the cost of implants is also affected by where you live. If there is a PS running a special like that, I say jump on it as long as you are confident in his work and comfortable with him when you meet for your consult.

I'm going to OKC for mine and I'm planning on saline for $3300 so it sounds reasonable! If you like the dr I say go for it!

My PS rate is 3,950 for saline, that's standard which is pretty good compared to other local ps in my area which are around 5,000. But he has his own operating room so it cuts the cost, also has the best ratings/reviews.

WOW! Definitely go for it after you look into the PS...if you like what you see and he/she is board certified, WHY NOT?!?! I would!! I'm gonna be paying close to $6000 so if I could get it done for half of that, I would in a heartbeat! But I love my PS, so I won't go anywhere else LOL

It's kind of interesting...I studied the basic factors of influence in one of my psychology courses, and it applied so much to my sales course it isnt even funny. I learned that one factor of influence that is very common is power and status. To describe how it works, my book layed out this story of a woman who owned a jewelery store and could not for the life of her sell some turquoise items that she had. She tried promotions, sales, placing them in different areas in the store, etc. When she went on vacation for a week she left a notes with a sales associate to sell the pieces at 1/2 the price, but the sales associate misread it and priced the items at TWICE the retail price ...and they all sold in the first day.

so basically what Im saying is that people assume that higher price automatically means more value and better quality, but that's not always the case. If you do your research and find that this doctor doesn't have a bunch of lawsuits against him/her and that their work looks good, id go for it!

I was only going to have to pay $3000 for Saline unders, but because I am using a no interest loan I have to pay the PS's office $200 dollars cash for not paying in cash. $3000 is not bad. But you also have to keep in mind where you live. The cost of living determines how much everything will be from gas to real estate to plastic surgery.
My PS is the best around, and he does not charge a lot. But he also peforms the procedure in office versus in hospital. This also lowers cost.

Sounds good to me. I am paying 3500 for my saline unders & my PS is board certified & voted best PS in Jacksonville for the last 14 years. =) I'd say if you like him do it!

I paid $3900 total for mine. I signed just before the new year and new raised price had kicked in. Some will give you a discount if you ask. My PS is very well accredited and attended some of the best schools & did internships at some of the most well known hospitals with 30 years of experience under his belt. It absolutely depends on your location. Up north, the cost is considerably more. But, as the other ladies said, you should still do your research on your PS. You can do a search for lawsuits that he has been involved in too. Whether they are settlements, arbitrations, or negligence cases. If he is good, he will have no problem giving you all the info you need.

Wow that's a deal... I'm sure it has a lot to do with supply and demand, as well as the area and it's standard of living. I would imagine in (for example) Beverly Hills, where there is probably a board certified PS beside every Starbucks on every street corner, there is more competition. In my city there are a handful. And I am going to the one with the best reputation, superior after-care, highly qualified with both the Canadian and American boards of PS, and was referred by a friend of mine. He is very calm, took his time to answer all my questions and hasn't pushed me into any decisions, but when pressed he did give me his preference of 2 sizes. I'm going with silicone and my bill is over $9000, all in, hospital fees, anesthesia, taxes (oh thank you harmonized sales tax, you added a thousand to my bill). The only thing I found odd, when i was filling out the paperwork with the office assistant, was I asked about any discounts, specials, manufacturer rebates, and she looked at me like I had 2 heads and said she had never been asked that question before. Really? huh...

My friend had hers done by Dr. Van Hoy and she absolutely loved his work! Not who I'm using, but for saline mine are only $2500 plus a $500 fee for anesthesia
