Cost is naturally a factor in your decision to have a cosmetic surgical procedure. When it comes to breast implants, women today have a variety of options. The cost of breast implant surgery can vary widely, depending in part on the type of implants you choose and on your individually-tailored breast enhancement surgical plan.

What is the average cost of breast implants?

Costs of breast implant surgery are widely varied throughout the nation. There are three basic components of most surgical quotes: the surgeon’s fee, the anesthesia fee, and the facility (operating room fee). In breast implant procedures, the cost of the implant must be factored in as well. The surgeon’s fee varies with the surgeon’s level of experience, the extent of his or her training, as well as the location of the practice. Geography and the quality of the surgical facility are likely the most significant factors in determining the operating room and anesthesia fees.

Silicone implants

Silicone gel-filled implants can cost significantly more than saline implants. They have a more natural feel and are available in a round shape and in a teardrop shape.

Gummy bear implants

Cohesive silicone implants are nicknamed for gummy bears – the candy their consistency resembles. They are pliable but firm and shaped to enhance the outward appearance of the breast. Gummy bear implants are often more costly than standard silicone or saline implants.
