Breast Augmentation: Costs

Breast Implants Cost from $ 2,250
With Financing $ 70 per month

Index: Overview and Pre-Op - Procedures and Techniques - Recovery


Women with small or underdeveloped breasts who wish to enhance their appearance may choose to have a procedure called breast augmentation or mammoplasty. Breast augmentation costs vary greatly from surgeon to surgeon.

Understanding the different techniques involved will help you bugdet for breast augmentation surgery better.


A fuller body contour can be safely achieved through the placement of implants directly under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle. Implants that are filled with saline or salt-water, silicone or gel can be used for breast augmentation procedures.


Small incisions are made so that the implant can be inserted. These small incisions may be made in the crease under the breast or under the nipple. The implant is then filled to achieve the desired size and shape of the breast. The surgery can be performed as an outpatient under general anesthesia or ambulatory (local anesthesia) and takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete.


Most patients can resume to normal activities within 5-6 days following surgery. Sutures are removed in 7 to ten days and your surgeon may recommend a surgical support bra. Exercise and other strenuous activities may be resumed in about one month.


Anesthesia: General or local with Sedation

Location: Hospital

Minimum Stay: 10 days


At the initial visit, your doctor will likely ask you to describe in detail what you would like improved. Be specific about what you would like done. If your surgeon fully understands your expectations, he'll be able to determine whether your goals are realistic. Your surgeon will examine your breasts. He will talk to you about the size you want your breasts to be and other considerations involved with breast augmentation.




Discuss with your surgeon:

  • Breast Implant shape: round or teardrop
  • Breast Implant surface: smooth or textured
  • Breast Implant size and volume: cup size/210 ml-500 ml
  • Breast Implant placement: above or below the muscle
  • Breast Implant Incision site: armpit, areola, breast or belly button

See Breast Augmentation Procedures/Techniques for detailed comparisons of these options.


You are at increased risk for complications if you have diabetes, poor circulation, heart, lung or liver disease, smoke, have a family history of blood clots, take certain medications, etc. You'll want to discuss your medical history thoroughly with your physician.


Breast Surgery Pre-op Preparation


Before Breast Surgery:


  • If you smoke, quit smoking for at least 2 weeks pre-op (and anticipate no smoking for the recovery, smoking greatly increases your risk of complications)
  • Do not take aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications for two weeks
  • Your SSI personal assistant will help you fill prescriptions (especially pain medications and antibiotics) before surgery
  • Set up recovery area: lots of pillows, books, magazines, journal, stationery, T.V., remote control, videos, favorite CDs
  • Black out windows so you can rest during the day
  • Dietary Needs:Consider quick snacks: Protein shakes, soup, applesauce, jell-O, frozen dinners, yogurt, oatmeal, cottage cheese, juice (purchase flexible straws for easier drinking)
  • Be sure to have adequate protein - the body needs it for proper healing
  • Talk to your doctor about low-sodium foods to reduce swelling
  • Prepare Icepacks (can also use packs of frozen veggies or fruit, gel packs, etc/) to reduce post-op swelling
  • Moisturizers, scar reducing creams and petroleum jelly for incisions
  • Laxatives (pain medications are often binding)
  • Eye Drops (after any surgery, eyes can be dry)
  • Consider hand-held shower head and bathroom chair
  • On the day of surgery, wear loose clothing which will be easy to get off and on after operation (a shirt that buttons in front)
  • Follow your physician's directions carefully regarding medications, eating & drinking.

Loss of sensation in nipples
after breast augmentation

Many of my friends say that there is no loss of sensitivity in the nipple after their breast implants, but is there a higher risk of losing sensitivity if it put in through the nipple.

Loss of sensation in nipples
after breast augmentation

Marcy, this is a very important question and many women have the same concern of having loss of sensation in nipples after breast augmentation. After discussing this with a couple plastic surgeons the general consensus was that many of the patients had absolutely no loss of sensation but this is still a risk and could be a slightly higher risk if you decided to have the implant put in through the nipple. Their advice is that if this is a major concern talk to your doctor about the different techniques used. Find out your options!!

Breast augmentation
pricing in new york

I realize everything in New York is expensive but why is breast augmentation pricing in New York more expensive than anywhere else in the country?

Sharleen- New York

Breast augmentation
pricing in new york

Sharleen, from what I have discovered New York and Texas are the two most expensive places in the United States to have any type of Plastic or Cosmetic surgery. Why? I think there are a couple factors. One is the hospitals or surgical facilities, another is mal practice insurance is extremely high in these states and finally there is a lot of demand for plastic surgery in these states.

Hello SSI, I am really interested in getting some plastic surgery, definitely a nosejob but I want something more, but it's kind of hard to find a general cost for plastic surgery, can you give me some prices?

General cost of plastic

Hello Richard, I know it is really hard to find the general cost of plastic surgery, I worked on it for months that is why if you go to compare prices on the SSI website you will find not only the average cost of plastic surgery in the United States but also our prices. You can also find cost information on the Package page which lists the prices for multiple procedures. If you can't find what your looking for go to get a quote and let me know!

Hi SSI Team! I can't believe how many people are getting a breast augmentation in riverside, I'm just 22, and I would like to get one as well but it's so expensive, but I've no idea about medical tourism and having to travel to another country to have it, but I want to save money and you seem the right people, but what can you tell me to make me feel better about it? Coz I like the idea, but still a little scared, you know what I mean?

Tory, yes I know exactly what you mean. Medical tourism has been around for a very long time and hundreds of thousands of people travel every year to receive medical treatments but that doesn't mean that it is right for everyone. Make sure you feel comfortable with your surgeon and don't base your decision solely on cost. This is an important decision that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

Cost of plastic surgery, breast augmentation in

My sister and I always wanted to get a liposuction and a tummy tuck, maybe a breast augmentation and even where the cost of plastic surgery in Tennessee is a little bit lower compare to other states is amazing the difference that you present in here, but my question is: can we get even lower prices if we are traveling together? Like a package?

Gel implants over musclE

what is the difference between gel implants over muscle and gel implants under muscle.


Gel implants over muscle

Angie, the differences are many and depending on what you want the end result to be will decide which is best for you. The major difference is the look and feel. Under the muscle tends to look more natural, keep its lift and doesn't tend to interfere with future breastfeeding.
