As with most aesthetic surgical procedures, the overall cost of breast augmentation with breast implants in Roanoke, VA, will vary based on your unique needs and desired outcomes. In this blog post, we’ll describe some of these variables and discuss some of the options that make the procedure accessible for many different budgets.
How much do breast implants cost?
You can expect the total expense to include fees for your:
- Plastic surgeon
- Postoperative medications
- The specific facility in which your treatment is performed. These facilities can range from hospitals, accredited surgical centers, and so on.
Additionally, there will be a charge for the type, style, and size of breast implants you elect to receive, though this may be included in the surgeon’s or facility’s fee at some practices. Combining your procedure with a breast lift will also affect your total breast augmentation price.
Because the procedure is customized to your specific needs, it’s difficult to list a specific breast augmentation price without a consultation. However, RealSelf offers a cost range based on the feedback from people around the country who self-report their breast augmentation expenses.
Does insurance pay for breast implants?
Since breast augmentation is usually cosmetic in nature, you will more than likely be responsible for covering the cost of your procedure. There are some exceptions, though, often for cases following mastectomies.
How do people afford plastic surgery?
Because insurance usually does not cover breast augmentation, many practices offer financing options through reputable third-party companies to help make breast enhancement an affordable reality for virtually any budget.
At Aesthetic Surgery of Virginia, Dr. Enrique A. Silberblatt participates with CareCredit® – a trusted medical lender that provides a variety of low monthly payment plans with no interest financing (if paid within 6 months) or fixed, reduced-interest financing for up to 60 months.
How long do breast implants last? Are breast implants worth the money?
Most breast implants last at least 10 years, but they often look great for decades. If something happens to your implants that cause you to replace them, you may have some backup in certain situations. Dr. Silberblatt uses Allergan’s NATRELLE® implants, which usually come with a special warranty program intended to provide financial peace of mind in the years following breast augmentation.
If this is an issue that concerns you, be sure to talk to your surgeon about implant longevity, warranty availability, and ways to preserve your breast augmentation results and protect your investment.
