One of the things that patients want to know most is how much breast augmentation will cost them. The tricky thing about augmentations is that they typically range from about $6,000-$12,000, which is a huge gap. So what makes some augmentations cost more than others?
Your Geographic Location
Unfortunately, when you live in a large city like Chicago, you are typically going to pay more money for a breast augmentation that you would if you were in rural Montana. Why? Because the cost of living across the board is much higher in larger cities. Plus, when you have surgery done in a city like Chicago, you have more access to prestigious surgeons.
The Type of Implant that you Want
Typically saline implants cost a lot less than both silicone or gummy bear implants. During your initial consultation with Dr. Wiener, he will let you old each type of implant in your hand so that you can feel what the difference is like. He will also discuss the pros and cons of every type of implant to help you make an educated decision.
How Experienced Your Surgeon Is
Another thing that you pay for when you get a breast augmentation is the experience that the surgeon has. Typically, surgeons like Dr. Weiner who have years of experience with breast augmentation will charge more than those who just graduated from medical school.
