Cost and Financing of your Breast Augmentation

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimated in 2012 that the average surgeon/physician fee for breast augmentation surgery in the United States is $3, unhealthy 543.

This is your doctor’s fee only, and is an average. Costs will vary according to your location, your surgeon’s experience, and the type and cost of the breast implants selected for your breast augmentation.

Remember that cost should not be your only deciding factor when selecting your surgeon! Your surgeon’s credentials, experience, and proven results are import. So is your comfort level in working with your surgeon.

Because breast augmentation surgery is an elective cosmetic procedure, most health insurance plans will not cover the costs of the surgery or any complications or required revisions. Some health plans will even refuse to cover unrelated breast disease in patients with implants, so review the terms of your insurance policy carefully to understand your coverage.

Many surgeons will offer patient financing plans to cover these costs, so ask about this option during your consultation.

The total cost for your breast augmentation may include, but not be limited to
  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Breast implant cost
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Medical tests
