Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in the world. It helps enhance overall curves and contours simply by enhancing the size and shape of the breasts. Even though it is very popular, its cost has proven a financial burden to many households.
When you meet with a plastic surgeon, you will be able to learn more about the breast augmentation surgery as well as its average cost and your payment options. We’d like to take a few moments to cover each of these matters in brief.
About Breast Augmentation Surgery
In a nutshell, breast augmentation surgery involves the placement of breast implants into the breast pocket. These breast implants come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and compositions in order to meet various aesthetic needs. Similar, the surgery can be performed in a few different ways in order to meet a patient’s aesthetic goals.
The Average Cost of Breast Augmentation
The average cost of breast augmentation surgery can vary greatly based a wide variety of factors. For that reason, we don’t really feel that posting an average price conveys the full story about the cost of breast augmentation. This is really the sort of discussion that a patient should have with a cosmetic surgeon during a consultation.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Breast Augmentation
There are a number of different factors that may affect the total cost of your breast augmentation surgery. These include:
- The geographic location of the practice
- The training/credentials of the surgeon
- Complexity of the patient’s case
- Surgical methods and techniques
- Special promotions unique to the practice
Does health insurance cover breast augmentation?
By and large, health insurance does not over the cost of breast augmentation surgery since it is deemed an elective procedure rather than a medically necessary one. For that reason, we accept various methods of payment and also offer financing options.
Financing Plans for Breast Augmentation Surgery
Financing options for breast enhancement surgery work in a similar way as a credit card. A trusted third party will pay for the total cost of the breast enlargement surgery. The patient will then be responsible for paying back this third party on a monthly basis. A reasonable interest rate will apply. These financing plans can apply to other cosmetic surgery treatments as well, not just breast augmentation.
Many patients who use financing options to pay for their cosmetic surgery procedures are happy with the decision since the installment method helps them budget from month to month
