What does my breast surgery cost include?

The first thing to ask when talking about price is what the quote you’ve been given includes; some clinics don’t include everything you’ll be paying for in the costs they give to you, meaning you get stung later down the line.

Remember that your total cost should include the surgeon fee, anaesthesia fee and your facility costs, and everything should be outlined to you prior to the procedure taking place. Does the clinic give details of what compression garments will cost, for example? Ask them to outline your exact costs including extras, medication and recovery aids.

If an initial price appears too low, check with your clinic and take a look over written documents to make sure you’re covered if they give you more bills later.

How much is my breast enlargement worth?

Similarly, if a price seems too good to be true and you’re assured everything is included, you have to ask yourself why it is so cheap. Considering all the different factors your bill will be paying for, how can they afford to go so low when other clinics can’t? Does this mean the surgeon isn’t as skilled, or that the facilities don’t have the necessary certificates in place? While prices will vary depending on the service you’ll be receiving from a clinic and the surgeon’s reputation, you’ll find that most clinics charges will be within a similar range. Anyone who is charging significantly less than the general rate must have a reason for doing so and they could be compromising not only your results, but also your health.  

Do some research and attend consultations to see what different clinics believe your particular case will cost. Once you have an idea, the question can begin to change from ‘how much will my treatment cost?’ to ‘how much is my treatment worth?’ and you’ll not want to go any lower than this.

It’s impossible to say exactly how much your breast augmentation will cost without a surgeon seeing you first. There are a lot of factors to consider and price is often an indicator of how good your surgeon is. Cost is an important factor for patients considering breast implants, but it shouldn’t be your deciding one.
