What's a ball park cost for Augmentation?

I know there is a vast amount of factors that go into breast augmentation, lifts, and implant manufacturer costs alongside anesthesia, facility, meds, and other costs. But in your experience what is a ball park cost range you typically see for breast augmentation, and breast augmentation + lift. It'd be very helpful if you share a range like 9-10k or 6-7k, etc.
Thanks!

The average is so wide that it is pretty meaningless to know. Breast aug on the low end is probably about $4000 and on the high end about $15,000. Aug plus lift would be about $7000 on the low end and $20,000 on the high end. But those are guesses.

Remember, a doctor on the low end could be fantastic and a doctor on the high end totally mediocre. Go to a board certified surgeon who is a member of ASAPS (surgery.org). Meet a couple and make your decision.

If their prices are still too high, don't go to an unqualified non-board certified doctor. The thing to do is go to the local major university hospital that has a plastic surgery training program. Residents in their final months of training, about to go out on their own in the immediate future, do surgery staffed with prominent plastic surgeons from the community. That's my suggestion for well-priced surgery.

It could start anywhere from $4000 and up depending on what needs to be done and type of implants chosen. I have performed these operations for over 14 years and have offered all range if prices.

Hi there, breast augmentation alone is about $8-9.5K, depending on implant (I don't use saline implants, and I high recommend you don't choose them, regardless where you go). With a lift it is about $10-14K, depending on implant and lift type. This would include everything except lab fees and medications, which usually range around $250 combined. Thank you!

$6000 to $7000 range is a reasonable cost for augmentation, including surgeon's fee, anesthesia, facilities fee, and silicone implants. When you factor in adding a mastopexy or lift, this could add another four to five thousand as this will likely more than double your OR time.

Saline augmentation is the cheapest at about $5200 to $5500. Silicone is generally around $7500. Silicone with a left is generally about $1100. Certainly this differs from Beverly Hills where it is at least 40% higher as it also is in New York City. You can also spend less if you go to the mills that have billboards. But those physicians rarely see you after the surgery or even before and certainly don't care about education. You usually are not taken well care of there and every doctor knows his worth. You only have one body so you don't want to go to the cheapest bidder. Look for a surgeon that is a member of the American Society for aesthetic plastic surgery as he is the cream of the crop

Costs of surgery will vary from region to region and from surgeon to surgeon; please don't make this the primary factor in choosing your plastic surgeon. Experience, safety record, and quality of work will matter most. it would be much better to save up have the procedure done correctly; revisionary surgery can be more costly (in many ways).
In my practice, the range would be $7500-$10,500 depending on the type of implant and how much of a breast lift is indicated.

Thank you for asking. You are knowledgeable about the numerous factors involved with the ultimate cost. Geographic location varies the price as well. While it may be a straightforward case, the complexity of the patient's specific case also plays a role. The pricing shouldn't be too low or high. The pricing really is an individualized case (somewhat like an estimate from a contractor for a re-modeling) and is difficult to say in an online forum. Seek out different board certified plastic surgeon consultations and assuming the actual plan is actually equal then you will see what is appropriate. Best wishes

In Houston, I would say board certified plastic surgeons are charging 5500-$6500 for saline augmentations and $6500-$7500 for silicone gel. This includes the surgeons fees, hospital and anesthesia fees. There may be other physicians the charge less but most either are not board certified plastic surgeons or don't have a lot of experience with breast augmentations.

Augmentation costs can vary widely depending upon area of the country, surgeon experience, and implant type used. In a large city with an experienced surgeon, turnkey costs for saline implant can be around 6000, silicone around 7000, and the new anatomic high cohesive gel implants can make costs run over 8000. adding a lift can add several thousand dollars to a procedure depending upon the type of lift needed.
Do not pick you surgeon solely upon price- you are gambling with your outcome. Pick a surgeon that listens to your needs in consultation, seems to have a competent office staff, and has evidence of dedicating the majority of his/her practice to cosmetic breast surgery.

The costs can vary widely based on a number of factors - geography, surgeon experience, place of surgery, etc. The range around the US is from $4000 - $10,000 depending on what needs to be done. For price ranges specific to your area, the best thing to do is to contact a few board certified plastic surgeons in your area and see where they fall in that range.

It is difficult to determine a ball park figure. As noted, cost varies depending on the type of implant (for instance, saline vs. silicone), the surgeon's experience/skill level, the region in which you are having the surgery performed, etc.

However, in our practice, we charge $4,000 (all-inclusive for augmentation) and add $4,000 for mastopexy (lift).

I had breast augmentation 6 weeks ago and they seem to have settled but i'm unsure. I'm feel like they are too small. I have tried on bras and I measure into a 32DD as well as 34 C sister size (I was a 32a prior). How long will it take for my breast to drop and fluff? I also have a gap in between which makes it difficult to achieve cleavage.

Is it by lack of experience/expertise? Idealism? Are those PS who perform these procedures just "warriors" responding to a well present market? I would be curious to hear some honest answers, leaving the politically/socially correct behind. Thanks in advance.

I had a BA a year ago. Out of nowhere last week I noticed my right breast causing me pain when I tried sleeping on my left side. It's almost as if the implant slid across the midline of my chest wall and put pressure on my pec muscle. When I lay on my back - both breast move equally towards my arm pit so it doesn't appear to be that the pocket is too big. Also I'm having a numb, dull feel off and on in my right arm. The right breast feels "off". Hard to explain. It's driving me crazy!
