How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?
The decision to have breast augmentation is not something to be taken lightly. It’s a choice that you have probably thought about at length for many months (if not years). Before moving forward with the surgery, it’s imperative to have accurate information about how much breast augmentation costs. Wollongong and Sydney plastic surgeon Adrian Sjarif, who serves all surrounding areas, believes in being candid with prospective patients about the costs of breast implants, as cost is a critical component in any decision (including the decision to have plastic surgery).
How Is the Cost of Breast Augmentation Determined?
Breast augmentation expenses can vary. The cost of your breast augmentation will be based on the following factors:
The type of breast implants used: Silicone implants are available in two different shapes – round and anatomical (tear-drop). The decision to use one shape over the other is dependent on a number of variables which will be discussed at your consultation with Dr Sjarif. Generally, anatomical implants cost more than similar sized round implants
How the procedure is performed: Some breast augmentation candidates opt to have their breasts lifted at the time of implant placement; this approach can raise the costs of surgery. How the implants are placed (above versus beneath the chest muscle) can also factor into the cost.
Where the surgery is performed: The facility in which the procedure is performed will influence your overall expenses. Usually, private hospitals charge slightly more than day surgery facilities.
The experience and location of the surgeon: A surgeon’s fees for breast augmentation can vary, depending on their level of experience, training and their geographical office location. More experienced plastic surgeons tend to charge more for their services, and physicians in big cities tend to charge more than those in rural areas.
The best way to get up-do-date information about the cost of breast augmentation in Sydney, Wollongong and the nearby areas is to meet with Dr. Sjarif. After learning more about your treatment needs and goals, he can provide you with a personalized estimate of the anticipated costs. He is committed to offering breast augmentation at fair prices without compromising quality of care.
Your pricing estimate should include the cost of the implants, the surgeon’s fees, facility fees, post-operative follow up and any special garments you will need to wear after surgery. You do not need to worry about hidden fees being left out of your quote. If you are gathering quotes from other surgeons or offices, be sure that they are providing you with the total price and check that there are no hidden fees.
Payment and Financing Options
Because breast augmentation is considered elective or cosmetic in nature, health insurance typically does not cover the costs of surgery. If you decide to move forward with breast augmentation, Dr. Sjarif and our team can discuss your payment and financing options in person or over the phone or email. Our office accepts cash, checks and all major credit cards.
