Breast Augmentation Surgeons

Breast augmentation surgeons & prices

This purpose of this website is to provide you with the information and resources you need when researching breast augmentation. There is a lot of information out there, but much of it is opinion and not fact. Opinions aren't bad, but they must be used in the appropriate way. Your friend telling you that they're happy with their new breast implants and that their surgeon is the best is opinion. This advice from a friend may increase your desire to speak with a surgeon. It should not be the deciding factor to have the surgery. Your surgeon listing out the common breast augmentation risks and surgery recovery times is fact. This is the type of information that you should use to guide your decision.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that breast augmentation is the most commonly performed plastic surgery chosen by patients in the United States. In recent years there have been roughly 500,000 implant procedures performed each year, which represents a significant growth over previous years.

If you're not familiar with the procedure, breast augmentation is performed to reshape or resize a woman's breast using an implant. The FDA has approved four types of breast implants in the United States. See more about implant types here. All implants other than these approved four are considered investigational devices. If you're interested in participating in a clinical study, nformation about participation can be obtained from the companies conducting each study.

Are You a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Knowing what's involved in the procedure and what to expect are important steps in making a decision about this plastic surgery procedure. Here are some important factors to consider before making your decision:

  • Implants do not last forever. The majority of women require additional surgeries to repair or revise their breasts following their initial procedure. This means more money and time spent recovering among other things.
  • The surgical risks increase for each additional breast augmentation or revision procedure.
  • Changes can't be undone. Even when the implants are removed they will not return to their natural state.
  • Some women report difficulty breast feeding with implants.
  • Screening for breast cancer with mammograms is more difficult following this procedure.

What Will Breast Augmentation Cost?

While we know the average costs, the final price will vary over a wide range depending on the surgeon you choose, where your surgery takes place, the type of implants chosen, and other factors including previous procedures. Breast augmentations can range from $3,000 to $9,000 depending on the aforementioned factors. Schedule a consultation with a surgeon to get a personalized price quote.
