Q: Dr. Eppley, I am a mother of three and have breastfed each baby for about 13 months. I amcurrently breastfeeding my 9 month old. Once I’m done, I’d like to have breast augmentation with gummy bear implants. After breastfeeding, I’m left with very small breasts (embarrassing!). I’ll be probably a small B cup and will want a natural looking D cup. What is the cost of gummy bear breast augmentation?
A: Breast feeding eventually leads many women to consider or undergo breast augmentation surgery. Each child and each round of breastfeeding causes more breast tissue loss known as involution. I have seen many women who after two or more children have virtually lost all of their breast size and with that some of their feeling of being an attractive woman. Breast augmentation is a quick way to restore what was once lost. An important issues is whether you have any sagging after three children and that may necessitate some form of a breast lift with your implants. The other issue is that it is a good idea to have your milk dried up before having the surgery. (although the surgery can still be done with some light milk production) The total cost of gummy bear silicone breast augmentation is around $5500.

Q: Dr. Eppley I was just wondering the cost of gummy bear breast implants. I would like a D cup and was also wondering if that makes a price difference. Really I just need to know how much all together it would cost me? Also do you offer financing? Thank you
A: The total costs for gummy bear (highly cohesive silicone gel) breast implants is right around $5800. It does not matter what size breast implants you would get (150cc to 800cc) the costs are the same regardless of the size chosen. All financing is done through Care Credit, the largest cosmetic surgery financing company in the U.S. Gummy bear breast implants use a high cohesive gel which is more like a firm jello or like the gummy bear candies as the name suggests. Even if the outer shell of the breast implant gets disrupted, the gel is not going to extrude and the external breast will show no signs of deflation or loss of volume. (because there is no loss of volume)
