Breast Augmentation Cost
How much does breast augmentation surgery cost?
The cost of breast augmentation surgery depends a great deal on what part of the country you're in. For example, in New York and California, breast augmentation surgery can range anywhere from around $5,000 to over $10,000. These prices all inclusive, meaning that it includes all fees associated with breast augmentaiton such as the breast implants, surgeon's fee, anesthesia fees, operating room fees, etc.
As of 2012, the ASAPS reports that the average surgeon fee for breast augmentation was $3,918 for breast augmentation with silicone breast implants, and $3,535 for breast augmentation with saline breast implants. It should be noted that these are average prices for the surgeon's fee only.
While the cost of breast augmentation can be prohibitive for some, it is important not to "price shop" for cheap plastic surgeons. This does not mean that a cheaper surgeon can't perform a breast augmentation as well as an expensive surgeon. It simply means that you should never go with the cheapest surgeon you can find just because he or she is cheap.
