Hundreds of thousands of women choose to have Breast Augmentation surgery done to increase the appearance, size and shape of their breasts. There are many reasons that women choose to have a breast augmentation done.
- If they have small breasts
- If their breasts are not symmetrical
- When there have been changes in the size or shape of the breasts because of a massive weight loss
- A reconstruction that is necessary to repair damage after being treated for breast cancer
- Cosmetic improvements after breast reconstruction
- For drooping or sagging breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding. This would require both breast augmentation and a breast lift.
In order to be considered a good candidate for Breast Augmentation surgery, the person must have a full understanding of the procedure. That includes understanding the risks, the benefits, the costs, and they should also understand that this procedure will not change or fix any current problems they may have in their life. The first place to start is by making an appointment to have a consultation with a plastic surgeon. He or she will ask you questions and examine your breasts, your skin tone and the rest of your body to determine if you are a good candidate or not.
A very important factor to consider when having a Breast Augmentation procedure done is the cost. Most insurance companies will not cover the cost of these procedures because they are elective. The costs will vary depending on the surgeon you choose, the region you will have the surgery done in, the facility the procedure is performed in, what type of surgery will be performed and the type of anesthesia used. The implants cost between $1,000 and $1,300, the anesthesia is between $600 and $800 and the facility fee runs between $800 and $1,200. The total is near an average cost of $5,000 to $15,000.
