What are the costs involved in breast augmentation?
There are separate surgical, anesthesia, operating room, and implant fees associated with breast augmentation. Fees for replacing a deflated saline implant are partially reimbursed by the implant company in most cases. The surgical fee for treating capsular contracture that occurs within the first year or two is also reduced. Implants that are replaced many years later are subject to normal fees. Requests for a size change are accompanied by normal fees but this rarely occurs when the preoperative sizing technique described above is used.
