How Much Do Breast Implants Cost?
Asking how much breast implants cost is a bit like asking how much a new car costs – there are a lot of variables to consider that can affect the cost!
As the Detroit area’s top breast implant surgeon, Dr. Ali is often asked about the price of getting breast implants. When you come into our office for a consultation, Dr. Ali will explain the options that are best for you and give you firm price.
In the meantime, here are some factors to consider that affect the cost of breast implants.
Factors affecting breast augmentation cost:
#1. The type of breast implant
The type and size of breast implant you select will affect the cost. For example, saline breast implants are typically less expensive than silicone or “gummy bear” implants. Similarly, very large implants will cost more than more modestly sized breast implants.
#2. The method of breast implant surgery
There are different techniques for performing breast implant surgery. More complicated or involved procedures will cost a bit more than less extensive breast implant surgeries. For example, sub-muscular placement (having breast implants placed underneath the pectoral muscle) is a more complicated – an therefore more costly – procedure than breast implant placement above the muscle.
#3. The qualifications of the surgeon
As with any cosmetic procedure, price should not be the primary factor in choosing your breast implant surgeon. A more experienced and qualified plastic surgeon may be a bit more expensive than someone without extensive credentials – but the small added cost is more than worth it to achieve stellar results without any complications.
In other words, a Cadillac costs more than a Prius!
Make sure you select a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon like Dr. Ali who performs hundreds of breast augmentations each year.
#4. The facility
Also, it is important to have your breast implant surgery performed in an accredited and licensed surgical facility. While facility fees do add to the cost, you are much less likely to experience complications, such as infections, in a licensed medical facility.
The administration of anesthetic also adds to the cost of any cosmetic surgery. Be sure that your anesthetic is administered by an MD Anesthesiologist. When improperly administered, anesthetic can cause serious and even fatal complications – so it is worth the cost to have an Anesthesiologist who is an M.D.
#6. Geographic Location
Just like houses, breast implants are more expensive in Beverly Hills, California than they are in Mobile, Alabama. Fortunately, Michigan is right about “in the middle” of the national cost scale for breast implants – while still offering the same celebrity-quality surgical procedures as those found in Hollywood.
Dr. Ali will offer you a consultation to assess your needs and explain any factors that affect the cost, including the type of implant, the method used, and any additional costs associated with breast implant surgery, including the operating room, anesthesia, and post-op appointments.
