Do I Need A Consult To Determine The Cost Of Breast Augmentation?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have been working out for about three months now, and the first thing that always goes first are my breasts. I am currently a 34B, and I would like to be one cup size bigger. I looked at your before and after photos, and they look very good. I know I want them, but the cost is a big factor. Would I have to schedule a consultation with you in order to know how much it would cost? Thanks so much.

 A: Your description of the desire for breast augmentation is a common one. Whether it be from weight loss, exercise or pregnancy, breast tissue shrinkage or involution is one of the most common reasons for why women want breast implants. Their desire is to either return to a breast size that they once had or just get some more volume to fill out deflated and saggy breast skin. When it comes to determining cost of breast augmentation, an actual consultation is not necessary. The pricing of breast augmentation is one procedure in most plastic surgery practices which is fairly ‘standard’ and usually published. In my practice it would be around $4700 for saline breast augmentation and $5800 for silicone breast augmentation, all costs included. This pricing assumes that no other procedures are required such as any form of a breast lift.
