Common Questions: How much does Breast Augmentation Cost?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of breast augmentation in 2013 was $3,678. But this figure reflects the average of surgeon fees alone and does not contain additional costs like anesthesia fees and fees for the operating room. The total cost of breast augmentation can vary anywhere from $6,000 to close to $10,000, depending on factors including:
- Region and city where the breast augmentation is performed
- Plastic surgeon’s credentials
- Plastic surgeon’s experience
- Type of breast implant used
- Advanced equipment used
- Medical tests performed prior to the surgery
- Hospital fees
- Medication prescriptions
