In brief: Varies

Costs are variable depending on the type and manufacturer of the implant materials.
Also, wide variation in costs in various areas of the country. Remember that that besides the surgical and material costs, there are charges for the use of operating facility and anesthesia services to be accounted for in your costs.

Costs vary by area, and by surgeon within an area. In Columbia, S.C. we charge $4200 for augmentation with saline implants, and $5000 for silicone implants. That price includes anesthesia, facility charge and follow-up visits.

In brief: Highly variable

Costs vary on based on type of implant, surgeon's credentials, facility, anesthesia, procedure, etc.
This can vary from as little as $3500 up to 10, 000.

The costs of surgery can also vary considerably depending on the geographic location. Surgery costs in the south are much less than in say, New York! The variability also does not mean the cheaper surgeon is worse! Get several estimates, interview the surgeon and get recommendations from doctors you trust as to which surgeon is best.

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: It depends.

The cost of the procedure varies from town to town.
The price consists of cost of several things, (implants, anesthesiologist, or rental, plastic surgeon, etc). Cheap can get expensive fast. Please seek out a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. Ask him/her lots of questions, including price, where they do surgery, where do they have admitting privilages, etc;.

In brief: Breast Aug Cost

Total breast augmentation cost= surgeon's fee + implant cost + facility fee + anesthesia additional costs are the pain pump, pre-op testing, and post op medications.
Routine post op office visits are included in the surgeon's fee. The total cost varies by city. In baltimore, the average total cost for silicon is $5500- $6500. I am currently charging $5600 total cost for silicon.

In brief: Check your area

Internet searches and inquiries to society databases can give you the range of cost in your region.
The american society of plastic surgery comes out with an annual report of the average cost of all procedures. Like others have said, it is dependent on certain factors such as implant choice and complexity.

In brief: Call for a quote

Most offices will give you an idea of the cost over the phone.
There are many variables that go into the cost. Be sure when comparing costs you are comparing similar quotes. There are costs for the procedure, use of the operating room, anesthesia, and possibly follow up. Buyer beware.
