What’s the Average Cost For Breast Implants?
If you’re considering breast augmentation surgery, you may be concerned about the price point of such a major procedure. After all, you’re not just paying for breast implants; you’re also spending money on the surgery, anesthesia, prescriptions, and other costs associated with a breast augmentation.
For women mulling over the decision to undergo breast augmentation surgery, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Heather Rocheford of Minneapolis-based Rocheford Plastic Surgery has provided a cheat sheet of costs to expect when pricing out your breast augmentation surgery.
Generally speaking, you can expect to spend the following on breast implants, surgery fees, and other costs:
- Breast Implants: The average cost for breast implants in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region (where Rocheford Plastic Surgery is based) is $5,359 for saline implants and $6,350 for silicone breast implants. At Rocheford Plastic Surgery, this cost includes your surgical fee and all follow-up visits, as well as the facility fee and anesthesia costs.
Keep in mind that these prices are just estimates; the type of the implants you choose will typically influence the price point of your breast augmentation surgery.
- Facility and Anesthesia Fees: Some plastic surgery practices do not include facility fees and anesthesia costs in their breast augmentation pricing. If you’re not scheduling this procedure with Dr. Rocheford, be sure to inquire about the additional costs associated with getting your breast augmentation done.
- Lab Tests and Medications: It can be difficult to determine what each patient will require in terms of lab tests and medications. For that reason, these costs are usually left out of the estimate (including at Rocheford Plastic Surgery). If you’re curious about what lab tests and medications you might need, Dr. Rocheford can discuss these costs with you during your breast augmentation consultation.
With this information in hand, you should have a realistic idea of how much it might cost to undergo a breast augmentation procedure.
