How Much Does Breast Augmentation Plastic Surgery Cost?

Breast Augmentation 

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Plastic Surgery Cost?, The cost of breast augmentation plastic surgery procedure is one of the more important starting points for many patients looking for ways to enhance their breasts. However, it’s critical to recognize that cost alone cannot be a primary factor in choosing a surgeon.

Breast implant surgery is a major procedure, which should only be performed by a highly qualified and experienced surgeon. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Baumholtz provides breast augmentation surgery to patients in Shavano Park, San Antonio, Texas, and surrounding locations.

Breast Augmentation Surgery: Cost Components

  1. Surgeon’s fee

Cosmetic surgeons have a unique approach to performing breast enhancement. They have different levels of experience and different resources at their disposal. The surgeon you choose will have a significant impact on the total surgery cost.

Board-certified plastic surgeons cannot typically cut their fees drastically because of the high cost of investing in latest technology, maintaining their practices, and meeting ongoing education requirements.

  1. Type of surgical venue

Surgeons have the option to perform the breast augmentation surgery in ambulatory centers (ASC), private surgical suites, and hospitals. ASC are modern care facilities designed for outpatient procedures that don’t need an overnight stay. Most surgeons prefer ASCs since they are an economical alternative to hospitals. Typically, an ASC and a hospital will charge as per the time needed for completing the procedure and its complexity.

  1. Type of breast implants

Saline, silicone gel, and cohesive silicone breast implants cost differently. The breast implants you choose will have a direct impact on the end results of your breast augmentation plastic surgery. The following three types of implants are available in a range of shapes and sizes:

  • Saline implants are usually the cheapest and contain a saltwater solution
  • Silicone implants can be twice as expensive as saline implants and contain silicone gel
  • Cohesive silicone implants (gummy bear implants) have the most natural feel and cost much higher than silicone or saline implants
  1. Anesthesiologist’s fee

Breast augmentation is usually performed by placing the patient under general anesthesia. You may need to pay an additional charge as anesthesiologist’s fee. The anesthesiologist may charge the fee on a per hour basis. You should not settle for an anesthesiologist that charges an inordinately low fee. They may be less trained or the quality of anesthesia being used is not optimal.

Breast Augmentation may not be Covered Under Insurance

Insurance companies, in general, don’t provide coverage for breast enhancement and other elective procedures performed primarily for cosmetic purposes. Breast augmentation is not a medically necessary procedure and hence not covered by insurance.

Financing and Payment Options

You should discuss your budget for the procedure with the surgeon during the initial consultation. You should also inquire about any payment or financing options that the surgeon’s office offers.

Reputable cosmetic surgeons will not bring down the cost of treatment by cutting corners or compromising on quality. However, they do work with patients to make the procedure more accessible. The majority of practices accept third-party financing options.

These programs are designed to make it affordable to pay for medical procedures not usually covered by insurance. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Michael Baumholtz receives patients from Shavano Park, San Antonio, Texas, and nearby areas for breast implant surgery.

Dr. Baumholtz is an amazing Plastic Surgeon. I’m exactly 10 weeks post op - tummy tuck today, 3/18/22, I could not had asked for more, my results are amazing and could not be any happier. Dr. Baumholtz and his staff to date have gone above and beyond with my after care, they are always their for you and you are not left alone.

I couldn’t be any happier with my results!! The entire process was such an amazing & positive experience and one I will never forget. I was treated like a person rather than a number. Everyone, from the staff at Dr. Baumholtz’s office to the staff at the surgical center were so comforting and reassuring. Renee and Katherine at the office have been more than great, and the surgical center staff were so professional and caring. All my questions & concerns were addressed and I felt like part of a family. Thank you to all who were involved on my journey!!
