Breast implant augmentation surgery price is affected by what will be required to create your dream breasts. The factors that will influence breast implant augmentation price include whether there is any breast shape asymmetry, if there is any breast sagging, if you already have implants that need to be removed or have your breast capsule altered, and your choice of implants.
Breast implant augmentation surgery price affected by breast shape asymmetry
Breast implant shape asymmetry can affect your breast implant augmentation price because maneuvers other than breast implant placement may be required to achieve optimal breast shape. These maneuvers will require additional time in the operating room which is the number one factor in affecting surgical price.
For example, if your breasts demonstrate asymmetry in lower breast mound pole, you may require a wedge excision of the lower breast pole in one breast and not the other. When lower breast pole prominence is present, you will likely require a wedge excision of both breast poles with one greater than the other.
The secret is to make sure that following breast implant augmentation and wedge excision, that both breasts possess similar nipple to inframammary crease lengths.
Often breast shapes may be unequal with respect to medial and lateral breast poles. In such patients, it may be required to customize implant pocket position differentially in each breast. For example, if the medial breast pole of one breast is not as prominent in one breast, you may require the medial breast pocket to be made more prominent in this breast.
Breast implant augmentation surgery price affected by breast sagging
If you demonstrate sagging of your nipple and areola or sagging of your breast mound, you will require a breast lift at the same time as your breast implant augmentation. This required breast lift will require additional operative time that can affect your breast implant augmentation surgery price.
This additional time can be significant and range in a 2/12 to 3 hours of operative time in comparison to 1 hour or less for the simple breast implant. In addition, if your breasts are not perfectly round, such as in a tubular shaped breast mound, you may also require a special breast lift intended to round out your breast mound shape.
Breast implant augmentation surgery price affected by requiring breast implant replacement
For patients that already have breast implants in place, it is routine to require not only breast implant removal and implant replacement but as well as potential implant pocket repositioning. Implant repositioning requires alteration of the capsule such as in capsule cutting (capsulotomy), cutting out of the capsule (capsulectomy), and alteration of the capsule (capsulorrhaphy).
These alterations of the breast capsule are often required to improve overall implant position or to correct any breast pocket asymmetry. Additionally, there may be breast implant augmentation surgery price differences depending on the implant choice.
Breast implant augmentation surgery price determined by implant type
Breast implant augmentation surgery price affected by implant type required with your breast implant augmentation. For example, saline implants only cost approximately 750 $ for the purchase of your implants. In contrast, routine silicone implants can cost up to 1300$ for the pair.
