In brief: Breast Aug questions

The cost is dependent on many factors.
Mostly this is dependent on the city you are in. Factors like the cost of the implants, or time, anesthesiologist can all factor in. It usually takes about an hour, again, each individual case is different. It is usually not covered by healthcare plans. It is usually an outpatient procedure. Best to see a board certified plastic surgeon for more answers.
