Factors Affecting Cost
As mentioned above, many options exist for breast augmentation and these options affect the price. It is very important to have a consultation with a board certified Plastic Surgeon to determine what is the best approach for you, which will determine the cost. Some of the factors affecting the cost, and more importantly your outcome can be further explained below:
Implant type: One of the major options with breast augmentation is implant type. Silicone implants are the most popular implants worldwide because of their many advantages including a softer feel, lower rupture rate, and lower risk of rippling. However, silicone implants are also some of the more expensive options available. Shaped silicone implants are usually the most expensive, followed by round implants. Also, there is a new saline implant called the IDEAL implant that is similar in cost to a shaped silicone implant and has the advantages of both saline and silicone.
Combined procedures: Many patients who present for breast augmentation also need additional procedures to achieve their desired goals, such as a lift. Many patients also already have breast implants and need additional procedures to correct problems from these implants. These additional procedure add time to the procedure and require more supplies, which increases cost.
Facility type: Another factor in the cost of breast augmentation is the type of facility where your procedure is performed. You want to be careful to avoid a facility that is not accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting organization such as AAAHC and AAAASF. Accreditation of a facility is a rigorous process and adds to the cost of building, as well as running the facility. This will often add to the cost of your procedure. However, the additional cost is well worth the safety. At Jones Plastic Surgery, we are fully accredited by the AAAASF.
Anesthesia: A major factor in the cost of any surgical procedure is the type of anesthesia provided. The gold standard is anesthesia provided by a board certified anesthesiologist. This assures a person fully trained and certified to provide anesthesia without any other physician oversight is providing your anesthesia. This important safety component is more costly than anesthesia provided by the surgeon or a nurse, but the added safety is well worth the cost. At Jones Plastic Surgery, we use only board certified Anesthesiologists.
Supplies: As mentioned above, there are many options with surgical supplies that affect the cost of a surgery, especially breast augmentation. At Jones Plastic Surgery, we use supplies of the highest quality possible, regardless of cost. An example of this is the use of the Keller funnel to place the implants. This device is a single use sterile device that allows breast implants to be placed without the implant touching the surgeon’s hands or the patient’s skin. This allows for a smaller incision, less trauma to the patient’s tissues, less trauma to the implant, and decreases the exposure of the implant to potential bacteria, which can cause infection and/or capsular contracture.
To conclude, there are many factors that affect the cost of breast augmentation. At Jones Plastic Surgery we utilize the gold standard for all aspects of your care to give the best chance of a successful outcome with the lowest risk possible.
