Many patients have questions about the cost of breast augmentation surgery. Let's take a moment to consider these matters right now.

The Average Cost of Breast Augmentation Surgery

The average cost of breast augmentation surgery can vary a fair amount from patient to patient since the procedure is carefully customized to meet their needs. Because of this, providing a general price range or even an average cost of the procedure doesn't provide an accurate picture of the various decisions and factors that go into pricing the breast augmentation procedure.

With all that in mind, we would be more than happy to provide you with a personalized price quote for breast augmentation surgery, which includes a full price breakdown of the surgery.

Factors That Determine the Cost of Breast Augmentation Surgery

Some of the factors that affect the cost of the breast augmentation procedure include:

  • The geographic location of the practice
  • The credentials/expertise of the cosmetic surgeon
  • The complexity of the patient's case
  • Combining various breast enhancement procedures
  • Special promotions that may be unique to individual practices

Comparison shopping can be helpful in your area, but be sure to consider the quality of the surgeon and surgical experience in addition to the cost.

Does health insurance cover breast augmentation surgery?


Breast augmentation surgery is considered an elective procedure rather than a medically necessary one. Because of that, it is not covered by health insurance. Reconstructive surgery following an injury or accident may be covered by health insurance, however. Be sure to check with your insurance provider since policies vary based on the nature and reason for the surgery.

Payment Options and Monthly Financing for Breast Augmentation Surgery

If the total cost of a breast augmentation procedure proves to be too much of a financial burden for an individual or household, there are payment options and financing plans to consider that can help put the surgery within reach. These financing plan work much like a credit card or traditional loan, with patients making monthly payments with a reasonable interest rate applied to the total cost of care.
