In brief: Depends

Cost should be the least important determinant in choosing a breast augmentation surgeon.
Certification by the american board of plastic surgery is a must. Find someone you are comfortable with, and who has experience with this operation.

I agree that finding a Board certified Plastic Surgeon is a must, but beyond that do your homework and research surgeons to make sure they get consistently good results. Price is more related to location. It is expensive in some areas of the country, and not as much in other areas. In Columbia, S.C. augmentation with saline implants is $4200, which includes everything. Sometimes young surgeons just out of training will charge less when trying to start a business.

In brief: Cost

Breast augmentation (boob job) is commonly performed in an outpatient setting under anesthesia.
The cost, depending on where you live, ranges from $3000 to $12, 000. The cost reflects the price of the implants, the facility fee, the anesthesia fee, and of course the surgeon's fee. Make sure your surgeon does at least 100/year with few complications.

In brief: Varies a lot...

Depending on the area of the country, whether the implants are saline or silicone, and whether local or general anesthesia is used.
Talk to several plastic surgeons certified by the american board of plastic surgery to discuss your options and get all of your questions answered.

breast augmentation costs vary on geographic region. For example when i lived in louisiance costs ranged from 3500 - 6500 dollars for surgeon fee, anesthesia and facility. Now that i live in washington, dc costs are quite a bit more. a saline breast augmentation costs around 6500 while silicone breast augmenation cost around 8000.

In brief: Depends

The cost for breast augmentation will vary depending on geographic location, type of implant, and type of anesthesia.
The national average is $5, 975. In my practice most patients spend $5, 000 for a silicone breast augmentation under general anesthesia as an outpatient.

In brief: From 3-10K

This is a wide ranging estimate because there are many options such as implant type, anesthesia, facility, etc.
Although less expensive options may seem attractive make sure to factor in experience, reputation and training as well as ability or provide follow up care.
