What Does Breast Augmentation Cost? This is the Only Painful Bit!

By Karen Beaumont

There is no getting away from it - new bodies do not come cheap! However, looking at this in a positive way, I am pleased about that, because I am a great believer that "You gets what you pays for in life! If it was cheap, then I would worry about the level of qualifications of the surgeon, and would they still be around if problems developed, or had they moved on without leaving any tracks?

Rather than get bogged down thinking about the cost, view it as a long term value-add to your life. It may well give you increased quality to your life over many, many years. These are years that you can never claim back. If you delay, then it is only yourself that has to live with that regret. You need to calculate in your mind how to make it happen. In the words of Yoda "You Do or you Do Not, there is no Try - a positive thinker!

Also, from a personal perspective, once I had the operation, the results were what I would class as "priceless", my partner being so pleased that he remarked that it was the best $6,000 anyone had ever spent!

It does not take much surfing around the Internet to find out the average costs of each type of Breast Surgery. It does, however vary according to which U.S. state you have the operation in, or where in the world the surgery is performed.

The following are a good general guide for Breast Augmentation:

Cost Range: $5,000-$7,000

Average Total Cost : $6,000

Surgeons fee: $3,050

Anesthesiologist: $700

Facility fee: $950

Implant fee: $1,300

Insurance will not generally cover breast augmentation unless you have a mastectomy. If you are having silicone replaced due to adverse reactions, check with your insurance company.

Questions to ask your insurance:

1. Does my policy cover the costs of the implant surgery, the implant, the anesthesia, and other related hospital costs?

2. Does it cover removal and/or replacement of the implants if this becomes necessary?

3. Does it cover the cost of detecting or treating a complication as a result of either the implant or the reconstruction?

4. Will there be an increase in my insurance premium?

5. Will future cover be affected?

6. What manufacturer warranty exists for the implants themselves?

Revision or Replacement Cost:

Before your operation I cannot emphasize the importance of being happy with the size implants you want, and not least of all to avoid additional cost due to having your implants redone or replaced.

Please be sure to find out in advance what provisions will be made if you are unhappy. Will a revision or replacement be done for full, partial or no discount? How much of a replacement and under what conditions are they covered by a manufacturer's warranty are questions that need to be asked of each surgeon.

Multiple Procedures:

If you are considerating having more than one surgery at a time (i.e. Breast Uplift as well as Breast Implants) this can reduce the overall cost. Be sure to check with your doctor about the options available and the risks of combining more than one procedure.

Additional Costs:

One other additional cost that needs to be remembered is that you will need new clothes - notably underwear! Think about this when deciding how large you want to go. Be careful to try on various clothes that you know you want to keep with your new size bra padded out prior to the operation. The clothes will need to comfortably cope with an increase of 2 - 3 cup sizes and still look good. It is only your cup size that will change, not your under breast measurement.

There is no getting away from the fact that you must bid a fond farewell to those old bras! After your 6 week wait wearing only support bras, you will be very eager to buy your new size in more feminine and flattering lingerie. How easy it is to blow $200 in one hit! It's a great feeling, but do bear this in mind when considering the "hidden costs of your operation!

Now you know what is involved, as long as your bank account can take the hit, what are you waiting for?
