What Is The Average Cost To Get My Breasts Enhanced?

Q: Dr. Eppley,  I am interested in getting breast augmentation but need to know the cost. I am 48 years old and have always been small. My breasts are in good shape but I want them larger and lifted. What would be an average cost as I am shopping.

A: The specific answer to your cost question depends on what type of implant you desire (saline vs silicone) and whether any formal type of breast lift is simultaneously needed. These two issues have a major role in the cost of the procedure. Without seeing pictures of your breasts, the best I can do is give a range from the lowest cost procedure (saline breast implants only) to silicone gel breast implants with a superior crescent and/or vertical breast lift. All costs included would put that cost range from $ 4,800 to $ 8,450. So you can appreciate how not knowing exactly what you need makes an accurate price quote impossible. The key question in this price range is whether one needs a simutaneous lift or not.
