Determining the total cost of breast augmentation can be a difficult task. Not only are there are a wide range of costs, but also the cost can vary depending on the patient’s goals and what they want to be done. The cost of larger breast implants is one of the most common questions we get about breast augmentation. Women that are thinking about getting breast implants should always make decisions on what will get them the breasts they actually want and not the price tag. You will be much happier with the results if you do. However, in this blog post, we want to look at a few of the factors that can influence the price of breast augmentation.
How Does Implant Size Affect the Cost of Breast Augmentation?
Women will sometimes decide to get smaller implants thinking that they will cost less than the larger implants that they actually want. However, here is how different implants stack up based on cost.
Silicone vs Saline Implants
Saline implants are the oldest type of breast implant on the market. Because of that, and several other factors, they tend to be the most cost-effective. Silicone implants almost always cost about $1,000 more. Even more costly are the new cohesive gel implants, often called “gummy bear” implants.
Shaped vs Round Implants
Another feature that will increase the price is whether or not you get “shaped” implants. Most patients are familiar with the circular Round type of breast implants. But silicone implants also come pre-shaped, most often in the shape of a teardrop to resemble the natural shape of the breast. These shaped implants will cost more than a traditional round silicone implant.
Small vs Large Implants
However, one factor that will not impact the cost of an implant is its size. The implant manufacturers charge a flat rate for a pair of breast implants. So a pair of C cup implants will cost the same as a pair of D cups. This is true for both saline and silicone implants.
