What Does Gummy Bear Breast Augmentation Cost?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in gummy bear breast augmentation. I’m a mother of three and have breastfed each baby for about a year. (currently breastfeeding my six month old). Once I’m done, I’d like to have breast augmentation with gummy bear implants. After breastfeeding, I have been left with very small breasts (embarrassing!). Can you possibly just shoot me a ballpark figure so I know what I’m able/not able to do? I’ll be probably a small B and will want a natural looking D. Thanks in advance!
A: Pregnancy and breastfeeding always cause some degree of breast involution or loss of one’s breast tissue. The breast skin is stretched out and then there is less volume inside to support the skin. This often, but not always, leads to some degree of breast sagging. How significant that is depends on what size breasts one had before the pregnancies. The bigger breasts one had to start with the greater the sagging will be afterwards.
When it comes to gummy bear breast augmentation using highly cohesive silicone implants, knowing whether any breast sagging has to be dealt with is critical in determining whether a breast lift is needed with the implants and that impact on cost. But for general numbers expect the total cost for gummy bear breast augmentation to be $5,500 and the addition of a lift can increase the to total costs to around $8,000.
