Breast implants are a great choice for women who have small or irregular breasts. The size of a womanâs breasts can be an issue of self-confidence and self-esteem for her. Breast implants can enhance the shape of your body, and can also help you regain your lost confidence.
Before you decide to get breast implants, book a consultation with Dr. Farbod Esmailian, who can help you choose a suitable type of implant and advise you on various shapes and sizes that are available. Even if you do not live in the Orange County area, you can visit his clinics in Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos or Long Beach, CA.
Types of Breast Implants
There are two types of breast implants available to women. Saline implants are filled with a salt-water solution, which can be filled once they are inserted into the breast. Silicone implants are filled with thick silicone gel. Most patients prefer silicone implants as they feel a lot more like natural breasts because of the gel that they contain. In terms of cost of the breast implants, silicone implants are almost double in cost than saline implants.
Cost of Breast Implants and Other Fees
Implants are not usually covered by insurance plans because they are considered as a cosmetic procedure instead of a medical one. If it is the cost that you are worried about, you will be relieved to know that the cost for breast augmentation surgeries has reduced since 2010.
Statistics from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery indicate that the overall fees charged by a surgeon for a breast augmentation surgery that makes use of silicone implants is $3,694 whereas the same surgery involving saline implants costs $3,308 on an average.
Location is a factor that also greatly impacts the breast implant costs. If the plastic surgery clinic is located in a city where the cost of living is generally high, you can expect to pay more for the procedure itself. Plastic surgeons in Los Angeles, Orange County, Newport Beach, and Torrance may have different procedure fees compared to ones located in New York or Washington D.C.
You might also end up paying more for your surgery based on the amount of experience your plastic surgeon has, as well as their qualification. If you choose a clinic that handles high-profile clients, that might have an impact on the cost of your procedure as well.
Anesthesia is used while carrying out the procedure, which also features in the overall surgical expenses. Along with anesthesia costs, you will be paying hospital bills, for the use of their operating room and other surgical facilities. If you find that you will not be able to bear the expenses from a breast implant surgery, there are other financing options that you can discuss with your plastic surgeon. The accounts department at the clinic will be able to work out a loan option for you, once you inform them of your financial situation.
