When planning breast augmentation surgery one of the steps you’ll have to take will be to calculate the costs and figure out how to finance your surgery. While the costs of different types of breast implants are relatively comparable, there are some variations; among the most affordable breast implants are saline implants. How much does it cost to get saline breast implant surgery?
Saline breast implants by themselves usually cost about $1,500-$2,500 for a pair. The factors which can cause the price to vary include the texture (smooth or textured), the shape, and the profile of the implants. Silicone breast implants typically cost $1,000-$2,000 more than saline breast implants, which to some people isn’t a major difference but to others is quite hefty, particularly if surgery isn’t reconstructive and therefore isn’t covered by medical insurance. That is one reason why many women opt to purchase saline breast implants instead of their more realistic silicone counterparts.
The full cost of saline breast implant augmentation surgery usually costs between $5,500 to $8,000 in an expensive urban area. This is the full sum including the price of the implants, the surgeon’s fee, the anesthesiologist’s fee, and the fee for using the facility along with any compression garments and other costs. In a less expensive region though your surgery could cost as little as $3,500. Less expensive areas to get saline implants and augmentation surgery are usually rural locations. Traveling out of town can save you thousands of dollars. If that doesn’t work you could consider medical tourism if you are conveniently close to the border. You can get excellent breast implant surgery in a foreign country at a fraction of the cost. One thing is for sure though; if you are struggling to afford your breast implant surgery and a couple thousand dollars makes a big difference for you, you can definitely save some money by getting saline implants.
