Here are a few factors that may contribute to the cost of your breast augmentation.
Breast Implant Type
Some breast implants cost more than others. Silicone is typically a higher price than saline, for example. While it may be tempting to choose implants based on a lower price point, it’s best to select the implants that will be the best fit for your body and lifestyle in the long run.
If you are considering multiple procedures, such as including a breast lift with your augmentation, you may save money by having both procedures done at the same time. You will only need to pay a single set of facility and anesthesia fees, which may bring your total cost down.
