One of the questions that inevitably come up when patients are seeking breast augmentation is, “How much does it cost?” Several factors go into coming up with an estimate for how much a breast augmentation procedure costs. These include the type of breast implant used, the type of anesthesia, follow-up care, and other costs.
However, the cost of your breast augmentation procedure, while important, should not necessarily be the first consideration. This is because breast augmentation, like all plastic surgery procedures, is truly a you-get-what-you-pay-for scenario. By having a board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Paul Angelchik, perform your breast augmentation, you can rest assured you are in the best possible hands.
Board-certified training and skill are important in that a successful outcome for your breast augmentation is more likely than it might otherwise be. As a result of this training, the cost of the breast augmentation procedure may be higher.
Once you have decided on having your breast augmentation performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, you can then discuss the type of implant, either silicone or saline, and the type of placement of the breast implant that are best for your procedure. The different placement of the breast implant may command a different price due to the type of incision or length of the procedure. If you are in the Phoenix, Arizona area, you may discuss these issues with Dr. Paul Angelchik.
When it comes time to make payments, most plastic surgeons have a financing plan you may qualify for. Companies like carecredit.com offer different payment plans that help put the cost of breast augmentation within reach. However, this does not preclude you from simply using a credit card rather than going through another company.
Other factors influencing cost include a licensed, accredited surgical facility versus an in-office facility, a board certified anesthesiologist, and Cosmetassure(TM) insurance for any medical complications.
No matter what the cost of breast augmentation might be, you should not let it be a hindrance to your aesthetic goals. By choosing a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and discussing your goals during your consultation, you will find that all considerations to the cost of the breast augmentation procedure will be taken into account.
