How much is the cost
This is different in every city, depending on the cost of the operating rooms and anesthesiologists. I do not know what the cost is in Philadelphia but I imagine it is probably somewhere between $8--$10K for a silicone breast augmentation from a board certified plastic surgeon.
Here in Las Cruces, New Mexico, it is about half the price. Fees seem to be in proportion to the cost of housing.
Thank you for sharing your question. Costs will vary widely across the US based on the style of implants used, location of the procedure, type of anesthesia, etc. so the best advice is to have a series of consultations to see averages for your specific area
The costs do vary from various physicians depending on whether the surgery is done in a hospital or office surgery center. Costs here at Vinings Surgery Center varies from $3200-$5200 depending on the type of implant. If you need a breast lift there is an additional charge of $2000 to $3000 depending on the extent of surgery required. Mesh is recommended for some patients which entails additional cost $1000. It’s best to have a consultation with a board-certified experienced plastic surgeon to understand your specific needs. Thank you for your question. Dr. Colgrove
Cost for breast augmentation and any other PS procedure really varies with respect to geography but also with expertise. Be prepared to spend more if you go to a Plastic Surgeon who is more seasoned in this procedure as compared to a newbie. In many ways you get what you pay for and so be careful to not let cost determine who you choose.
My suggestion would be to choose 2-3 PS's who specialize in Cosmetic Breast Enhancement and go with your gut. Also ask to speak with a few of their patients to see what their experience was.
I hope that helps and wish you the very best!
