How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost in Atlanta?

Posted August 05, 2021 in Blog, Breast Augmentation

Plastic surgery is a serious decision that can positively change your perception of your body, self-esteem, and outlook on life. Many breast patients say they are happier and more fulfilled after their augmentation. 

However, plastic surgery doesn’t come cheap, especially if you seek a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the average cost of breast augmentation (a.k.a. augmentation mammaplasty) in 2019 was $4,947. But that price does not apply to every plastic surgeon in the United States, and of course, there are other expenses and fees associated with the surgery.  Some surgeons command upwards of $15,000 for breast augmentation and adding additional procedures, like a breast lift or a tummy tuck, further drives up the price.

At Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta, our focus is to deliver a stellar patient experience with unparalleled results consistently. Patient satisfaction is our top priority. Our face and body surgery services help patients obtain their goals. By custom tailoring each procedure to every patient’s body and aging concerns, we allow them to achieve their desires while they age in the most natural way possible.

WHAT DETERMINES THE PRICE OF A BREAST AUGMENTATION?

The cost of breast augmentation varies by patient. The type of implant, implant shape and size, and details of your procedure will dictate the final price. 

Besides the costs of the implants themselves, there is also the fee of your surgeon, which includes the time it will take for him to perform the procedure. Surgeons with excellent reputations and waitlists may charge more than a below-average surgeon. Also, your surgeon’s location could contribute to a higher price tag, especially if he operates in a large city.

Additionally, fees are built into your overall price to cover the costs associated with your surgeon’s operating team, anesthesia, facility costs, and pre-and post-surgery materials, dressings, sutures, and specialty bras and garments.  Any prescriptions and medications are usually not included in the overall price. 

After your consultation, we will provide a detailed cost estimate that includes the applicable fees for Dr. Brothers and his surgical staff, as well as any necessary medical supplies and your follow-up care. The cost of your breast augmentation procedure at the Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta is also dependent on the length of time the surgery will take. 

Remember that unlike a breast reduction, which your health insurance may cover, breast augmentation is fully paid for by the patient because it is an elective procedure. The only time that insurance may cover the cost of breast implants is if they are part of breast reconstruction following a mastectomy.

Any necessary revision or future procedures will require additional charges. Make sure to discuss this with your surgeon during your consultation.

If you plan to recover at a recovery facility or hotel (and not at home), make sure to include this expense in your budget.

THE DIFFERENT WAYS TO PAY FOR YOUR BREAST AUGMENTATION

There are many different ways to pay for your breast augmentation, even if you haven’t saved up for it.

The cost of each procedure offered at the Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta is dependent on the details of the surgery and the length of time the surgery will take. During the consultation, Dr. Brothers’ fees, including all costs associated with his nurses and operating team plus any post-surgery dressings and special garments, will be discussed. You will leave the appointment with a written estimate.

In addition to accepting cash, checks, and most major credit cards, Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta also offers CareCredit, a popular financing option available exclusively for plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures. CareCredit offers low monthly payment options and no up-front costs or prepayment penalties. Financing your breast augmentation is an easy and convenient way to pay for your procedure.

Some banking institutions allow for personal loans that offer interest rates similar to those of a credit card. 

PLAN FOR FUTURE BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERIES

Just because you choose to undergo a breast augmentation once does not mean that the results will carry you throughout life. Breast implants are long-lasting, but they do not last forever. 

Most breast implants, regardless of their size, shape, and fill material, will need to be replaced at some point. Some surgeons recommend swapping them out every 10 to 15 years; others say to do so when you see a change in the way your breasts look or until a mammogram detects a need to replace them. Remember that weight gain, weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and the natural aging process can also affect the breasts’ appearance and necessitate a replacement.
