Many different factors influence the price of breast augmentation. However, few have a greater impact on what you can expect to pay than your chosen type of breast implant. Saline implants cost less upfront than their silicone counterparts. Keep reading for a complete price breakdown.

Breast Augmentation Cost by Implant Type

Silicone implants smooth surfaceSaline implants are cheaper than silicone ones because of their fill material. Saline is a sterile mixture of salt and water. Meanwhile, silicone implants are filled with silicone gel. Silicone gel comes in various consistencies and is more expensive to produce than a saltwater solution.

Our practice charges $4650.00 for breast augmentation with saline implants. Meanwhile, the cost for breast augmentation with silicone implants will depend on the level that you choose:

  • First level gummy implant: $5750.00
  • Second level gummy implant: $6750.00
  • Most gummy implant: $7750.00

That said, you will also want to consider the long-term costs associated with each implant type. For example, women who get silicone implants may need regular MRIs to check for a rupture.

Keep in mind that you should not select an implant based on cost alone. It is important to think about the results that you want to achieve. Silicone implants tend to look and feel more natural.

Additional Cost Factors to Consider

Implant choice aside, there are other factors that can influence the cost of breast augmentation. Some surgeons charge a consultation fee. However, our practice offers complimentary consultations, allowing you to explore your plastic surgery options without the commitment.

Things like anesthesia fees, hospital or surgical facility fees, and medical tests are some other examples of potential costs. So are prescriptions, post-surgical garments, and surgeon’s fees.
