Breast augmentation is a surgery that allows a plastic surgeon to place breast implants in a patient that is looking for fuller breasts and/or is looking to restore breast volume.
There are many things a person needs to consider before having a breast augmentation surgery performed. Life changes is one of those things someone should put great thought into before electing for surgery. Pregnancy is one of those life altering changes and having breast implants before having children can mean more surgeries later on in life.
Since most insurance companies do not cover the elected procedure of having breast implants placed. The price of these surgeries can start as low as $4,000 and soar to the high amount of over $10,000. The price depends on many things such as type of implants, if the surgery will be done in the office or in the hospital, extent of work to be done and more. The choice of plastic surgeons will also affect the price of the surgery. Most surgeons will give you payment plan options or will point you into the right direction of places that offer credit to cover cosmetic surgeries.
Size of the breast implants is usually one of the hardest decisions when it comes to breast augmentation surgery. This can usually be solved by talking with your surgeon and letting them show you the options. They can also show you before and after photos of your breasts to help you get a better idea of how they will look on your body type.
There are also the options of texture, type and placement. Each of these options play a role in the final result of how your breasts will look after the breast augmentation surgery is performed. It is always best to have consultations with a few different board certified plastic surgeons before choosing one so that you are sure to find one that you are more comfortable with.
