Many times this involves common and popular procedures such as breast augmentation, which uses implants to enhance the bustline.

Since many prospective patients have questions about the cost of breast augmentation surgery, we'd like to discuss these matters in brief right now.

What is the average cost of breast augmentation surgery?

The average cost of breast augmentation surgery can vary a fair amount based on a whole host of factors. Since each surgery is customized to the patient, this means no two procedures are quite the same. Consequently, a general price range for breast augmentation surgery or even a national average wouldn't paint an accurate picture of what breast augmentation really entails in terms of cost.

That being said, we would be more than happy to provide a personal price quote for patients during the consultation process. This will include a full breakdown of the various costs that are involved in the surgery.

Factors Affecting the Price of Breast Augmentation Surgery

Some factors that will affect the price of a breast augmentation procedure include the following:

  • The geographic location of a dental practice
  • The credentials and expertise of the cosmetic surgeon performing the surgery
  • The complexity of the patient's case
  • Special promotions that are unique to individual practices

When comparison shopping for an affordable or reasonable price, keep in mind that the quality of the surgery needs to be taken into account as well as the cost.

Does medical insurance cover breast enlargement surgery?


Breast augmentation surgery is an elective procedure, which means that it is not a medical necessity and is therefore not covered by health insurance. The only time a breast enhancement procedure of this nature might be covered by medical insurance is if the surgery is reconstructive in nature an performed to address injury or disfigurement. In those circumstances, be sure to consult with a physician and your insurance provider.

Monthly Financing for Breast Augmentation Surgery

If the cost of breast augmentation surgery proves to be too much for your income, there are monthly payment options to consider that can place the surgery within reach. These financing plans operate much like a traditional loan or credit card. A trusted lending company covers the cost of the procedure, and the patient pays the amount back on a monthly basis, with a reasonable interest rate applied to the total cost of care.

Weighing All of Your Surgical and Payment Options Carefully

Breast augmentation surgery isn't a choice to be taken lightly, which is why we will take great care to answer all questions and address all concerns as they arise. This means issues related to the surgery as well as ones related to payment matters. This will help you get all the information you need to make confident choices about surgery.
