When it comes to breast augmentation, there’s one thing most patients want to know before proceeding – What does a boob job cost?

What Does a Boob Job Cost?
If you’d like to improve the size, shape, fullness, and symmetry of your breasts, you may be wondering – What does a boob job cost?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the average cost of breast enhancement surgery is $3,824. With additional fees, the total cost can be upwards of $12,000.
That being said, boob job cost can vary widely. In order to get an accurate estimate for your specific procedure, we recommend scheduling a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Shlomo Widder.
One very important thing you have to realize. Cost of surgery is important, but quality of surgeon is more so, because if you need corrective surgery, the total cost of surgery will escalate dramatically.
So, it is critical that you consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Widder, who has been in practice for over 32 years and has the surgical skills and aesthetic eye to help you achieve your goals.
At your initial appointment, Dr. Widder will assess your concerns and goals, perform a physical examination, and explain all aspects of the procedure. He will also develop a surgical plan that is tailored to your individual needs and goals and designed for optimal safety and outcomes.
What Costs Contribute to the Price of the Procedure?
The average cost of breast augmentation, listed above, represents the plastic surgeon’s fee.
Other expenses to consider include:
- Anesthesia fees
- Facility fees
- Pre-op testing
- Surgical garments
Following a consultation, you will receive a detailed estimate that outlines all associated fees for your surgery.
Is Breast Augmentation Covered by Insurance?
Insurance may provide coverage for breast augmentation that is deemed medically necessary. For instance, if you are undergoing reconstructive surgery after a mastectomy and breast cancer.
However, if your boob job is purely cosmetic, insurance isn’t likely to offer any coverage.
The good news is that there are a number of ways to pay for breast surgery including payment plans, medical credit cards, and health savings accounts (HSA).
