Understanding Breast Augmentation Costs
Cost is understandably a significant concern for the majority of patients who are seeking to undergo breast augmentation or another type of elective cosmetic surgery. When planning your procedure, Dr. Ken Smart will be happy to explain the various factors that influence breast augmentation costs during a personal consultation at his Frisco, TX, plastic surgery practice. Based on your unique goals for surgery, we can develop a custom treatment plan that fits within your budget. Contact Frisco Plastic Surgery & MedSpa today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Smart and learn more.
Factors Affecting Costs
The cost of a breast augmentation procedure will depend on a number of different factors. These include:
- The surgical techniques used: Breast augmentation surgeries that involve more complex incisions or placement techniques can often be more expensive.
- The type of breast implants used: In general, silicone breast implants are typically more expensive than saline types.
- Combining breast augmentation with other procedures: When a woman chooses to combine her breast augmentation with a breast lift, for example, the total costs will be higher.
- Facility Fees: Fees for surgeries performed at hospitals are significantly higher than those performed at a private surgical suite.
To best ensure our patients safety and reduce costs, we perform breast augmentation procedures in our state-of-the-art surgery center, which is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). After your breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Smart, our patient coordinator will provide you with a personalized quote so that you can see how each cost factor affects the final price of your procedure.
Breast Augmentation Financing
Patients should understand that breast augmentation is an elective cosmetic procedure, so most insurance plans will not cover the cost of treatment. However, some plans can provide partial coverage for mastectomy patients who will be undergoing breast reconstruction with implants. Since most patients will be paying for the full costs of a breast augmentation by themselves, Dr. Smart strives to make treatment affordable. At Frisco Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, we accept payment by cash, personal check, or credit card. Furthermore, we also offer third-party financing through CareCredit℠, which allows you to afford treatment by making low- or no-interest monthly payments. We will be happy to discuss the payment options available to you in greater detail during a personal consultation.
