Hundreds of thousands of women undergo breast augmentation every year in the U.S., but it isn’t a one-size-fits-all type of surgery. The implant size, shape, type, and placement should always be tailored to each patient’s unique goals, body proportions, and lifestyle. Because surgeries can vary so greatly, breast augmentation cost can as well. At MP Plastic Surgery, Dr. Max works hard to ensure patients receive the best treatment possible, keeping financial needs in mind.
Breast Augmentation Cost Factors
If you’re discussing breast implants with your plastic surgeon, and breast augmentation cost is a big factor for you, there are two implant features that may affect how much you pay.
- Type of implant: The two types of breast implants are silicone and saline. Silicone implants are made of silicone gel, which is soft and sticky and creates breasts that tend to have a more natural feel. Saline implants are usually empty when inserted into the body and then filled with sterilized salt water. Both implants have their pros and cons—which Dr. Max will happily discuss with you—but saline implants do tend to be the less expensive option.
- Shape of implant: No two breasts are shaped the same, so implants also come in different shapes. Tear drop implants are usually used when a patient is looking for a more natural-shaped breast and doesn’t need much of a lift. Round implants tend to be preferred when seeking perkier breasts that sit higher on the chest; they are also sometimes less expensive than tear drop implants.
While the type of implant you choose, as well as the shape, can affect breast augmentation cost, the size you decide upon generally does not. Dr. Max will help you settle on a new breast size that will meet your needs and flatter your curves.
Financing a Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is a life-changing surgery that can improve your self-esteem and provide confidence. Women choose to have this procedure done for many different personal reasons, and Dr. Max is committed to educating you about your opinions not just for surgery, but for financing.
When you schedule your breast augmentation with Dr. Max at MP Plastic Surgery, we will work with you to come up with the best payment option or options possible. You can pay with:
- Cash or check.
- Credit cards, including Mastercard, VISA, Discover, and American Express.
- CareCredit, which allows for no-interest financing and low monthly payments. This card can be used anytime for procedures or appointments.
Usually, your insurance will not cover your breast implant cost because it is considered an elective surgery. Some breast-related surgeries, such as breast reconstruction or reduction, may be covered by insurance if they are deemed medically necessary. Our office team will help you figure it out.
