Factors Affecting Breast Augmentation Surgery Cost

Breast augmentation pricing depends on a series of essential factors. You cannot point out one aspect responsible for the total breast augmentation price. Check out all the vital elements that decide the estimated cost of breast enhancement:

1. Surgery Location

The location of the breast surgery impacts the breast augmentation surgery cost the most. Take a simple example. If you move to a bigger city, your cost of living increases. Similarly, the treatment cost automatically increases when you consider a bigger city. The consultation fee, hospital charges, medicines, dressing, etc., are enormous. In contrast, you can get the same at a lower price in smaller cities.

2. Types of Breast Augmentation

Surgeons carry out the procedures of breast augmentation in different ways. These types vary mainly in terms of cost. The common types of augmentation process are:

  1. Breast Implants
  2. Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
  3. Hybrid Breast Augmentation

Breast implant surgery costs can save for augmentation. However, fat transfer and hybridization are much costlier. In the fat transfer breast augmentation, your surgeon adds fat to your breast tissues from other parts of your body. This is called the liposuction method. In a hybrid process, both liposuction and implants are carried out.

3. Experience of the Surgeon

Undoubtedly, an experienced surgeon in a big city would charge more fees. Though some surgeons do not charge any consultation fee, you have to pay them in many places. It is better to finalize a surgeon that fits your budget. But ensure that they can give the best results too.

4. Surgery Cost and Others

You have to pay the boob job pricing, including the surgery fee, medicines, equipment used in the surgery, and the hospital fee. Moreover, the charge of the anesthesiologist is also included here. Your anaesthesiologist will also charge as per their experience and qualifications. Altogether, the cost varies from one hospital to another based on its location and skilled staff.

5. Post-Surgery Care Cost

The entire breast augmentation surgery cost includes post-surgery follow-ups, dressing, and medicine charges. Furthermore, it is risky to wear a regular bra after the surgery. Your doctor will instruct you to wear a special breast augmentation bra to support your breasts. If you get any breast augmentation scars, that will take another procedure to remove.

Does Health Insurance Cover Breast Augmentation Price?

‘What will be the breast augmentation cost?’ is the first question that hits everybody’s mind. You also think about the insurance coverage. Before deepening this part, you must be clear about insurance. Health insurance companies primarily cover all the life-threatening or lifestyle-enhancing treatment costs. That is to say, if your life is at risk, your insurer will cover the expense.

At the same time, if you require surgery to clinically enhance your lifestyle you will receive complete coverage. You may get breast augmentation for different reasons. If you want to look in your desired shape, your procedure will fall under the cosmetic surgery type. Many health insurance companies do not cover the breast augmentation cost. Moreover, they do not even cover the price of any breast drawbacks related to augmentation. Some companies refuse to pay any expense for breast surgery if the patient had any augmentation or implants for cosmetic purposes.

But, if you need breast augmentation after any severe condition like breast cancer, health insurance companies may cover your breast augmentation price. This type of augmentation falls under the reconstructive procedure. Reconstruction promises to give patients their regular life back. Moreover, if you visit any military hospital and your surgeon accepts to volunteer for your procedure, some insurance companies may cover your breast augmentation cost. In that case, your surgeon has to show that it is the only way to treat your deformed breasts.

Why Do You Need Breast Augmentation Surgery?

  • If you think your breasts are too small and want to change their appearance.
  • After breast surgery for other reasons, to correct uneven breasts.
  • To boost your self-esteem and confidence.
  • Make allowances for a decrease in the size of your breasts following pregnancy or significant weight loss.
  • If one of your breasts is smaller than the other, you can reshape them in symmetry.

Types and Techniques Involved in Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation involves the use of breast implants or fat-transfer techniques. Breast implants are prosthetic devices (artificial devices) implanted into your breasts.

Types of Breast Implant

Saline Breast Implants: It is made of saline and filled with clean saltwater. Saline implants offer a consistent shape and are FDA-approved for augmentation for any woman aged 18 and up.

1. Structured Saline Breast Implants: have salt water inside them. Also, have an inner design that helps the implant feel naturalistic.

2. Silicone Breast Implants: have a texture similar to natural breast tissue. If the gel inside the implant leaks, it may either stay inside the implant shell or escape into the breast implant pocket. You must visit surgeons often to check implants are working successfully.

3. Gummy Bear Breast Implants: They can retain shape even when the implant shell is broken. These implants protrude more at the bottom and taper toward the top. The placement of gummy bear implants needs a bit longer incision in the skin.

4. Round Breast Implants: They give the breasts a fuller appearance. Round implants are less likely to rotate out of place because they are in the same shape.

5. Teardrop Breast Implants: are anatomical because they gently slope from the nipple to the breastbone, giving the breasts a more natural shape. Teardrop shape implants may be worth considering if you want a more subtle, natural result.

6. Smooth Breast Implants: are the most comfortable breast implants to wear. They can move in tandem with the breast implant pocket, allowing for more natural movement.

7. Textured Breast Implants: These implants form scar tissue that adheres to the implant, making it less likely to move around inside the breast and be repositioned. Texturing has the advantage of lowering the risk of a tight scar capsule.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Your surgeon may extract fat from another part of your body using liposuction. Then inject it into your breasts during a fat transfer breast augmentation. This type of augmentation is used for women who want a small increase in breast size. In most cases, your surgeon will extract fat from one of the following locations:

  • Belly
  • Shins (the sides and lower back of the abdomen).
  • Back
  • Thigh muscles

Breast Augmentation Techniques

1. Sub-pectoral

The operation involves making an incision in the fold beneath the breast that gives the surgeon more direct control over implant placement. Surgeons prefer this procedure the maximum. In other words, the procedure is suitable for mothers or aged women who have saggy breasts.

2. Trans-axillary

This method involves an incision in the armpit or axilla. Then an implant is inserted either above or below the muscle during this procedure. Some surgeons will use an endoscope or small fiber-optic camera to assist them in performing the surgery.

3. Peri-areolar

In the peri-areolar procedure, an incision is made around the nipple-areolar complex. The scar tends to merge into the edge of the areola. This procedure is usually preferred for women with small breasts.

4. Trans Umbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA)

In this newer method, a small incision is made through the belly button. The surgeon inserts a tiny fiber-optic camera or an endoscope into the breasts through the belly button incision. The implant is then inserted and inflated with saline through this tunnel. The procedure is suitable for saline implants.

If the surgery is performed with CureIndia, you can expect a quick breast augmentation recovery due to the expertise and knowledge of the surgeons.

2). Carry out all prescriptions and medicines that you take regularly.

3). If you have children, arrange for someone to watch them for the first few days after surgery.
