BREAST AUGMENTATION WITH BREAST LIFT MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU.

Breast augmentation alone does not correct severely sagging or drooping breasts. In some cases, a breast lift may be required to allow you to achieve the best possible result. A breast lift can be performed along with breast augmentation. For the best results in a breast augmentation Utah has to offer, Dr. Brzowski can assist you with determining if a lift is necessary during your consultation.

How much does breast augmentation cost?

Typically, the cost is in the range of $5,000 to $15,000. Variations in the cost of breast augmentation is based on several factors. These include the extent of the surgery, whether a breast lift and nipple relocation and reshaping is needed, and the type of implants you choose, as they vary in price. Following your consultation, Dr. Brzowski’s patient coordinator will general a custom quote for the exact procedure planned.

Breast Augmentation Price

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported in 2019 that the total cost of breast augmentation was between $6,000 and $12,000. One reason for the broad price range is the plastic surgeon’s fee. The average fee for a typical breast augmentation in 2020 was $4,866, according to the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery National Databank

The surgeon’s fee can vary based on:

  • Their level of experience
  • The market prices in your local area
  • The specifics of the procedure

Other surgical considerations, discussed below, will affect the cost as well.

What can influence the average cost of breast augmentation? 

Beyond the plastic surgeon’s fee, the overall cost of breast augmentation will include such expenses as:

  • Hospital or surgical-facility operating room fee
  • Cost of anesthesia
  • Medical tests
  • Post-surgery garments, such as a compression bra to control post-op swelling
  • Prescription drugs, such as pain medication

The facility where the surgery takes place makes a big difference in your total cost. For insured people, surgery can cost more than twice as much if performed at a hospital rather than an ambulatory care center. This may not be the case for people paying out of pocket, though.

You can find out facility-fee details ahead of your breast augmentation surgery. The No Surprises Act allows you to request binding good-faith cost estimates for the procedure from your area’s hospitals or ambulatory care centers. Once you have facility-fee information from those estimates, you can ask your doctor to do the surgery at a facility you can afford.

The FAIR Health website helps you zero in on the costs for people who are paying out of pocket. In Columbus, Ohio, for example: 

  • The average uninsured cost of inserting a single breast implant is $2,752.
  • You’d also have to pay $2,151 for anesthesia.

The biggest expense can often be the facility fee, which varies widely. 

  • In Columbus, this fee is estimated to be $20,162 for an ambulatory surgical center (ASC) or $9,502 for an outpatient hospital.
  • In Chicago, by contrast, the price difference is smaller. The ASC fee would cost $17,285, while the hospital outpatient fee would be $15,556.

How Much Is A Mommy Makeover In Utah

The average cost of a mommy makeover is $15,201, but some people pay much as $27,000, according to 15,338 reviews from RealSelf members. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons puts the average price tag at $20,000.

1. How many procedures your mommy makeover involves

Each mommy makeover is a personalized combination of plastic surgery procedures, intended to reverse changes to the body brought on by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.

The treatment plan is tailored to your needs and desired results, but a “full mommy makeover” usually includes:

  • breast augmentation (with breast implants or fat transfer) and/or a breast lift
  • a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
  • liposuction

Some women also opt for vaginal rejuvenation (such as vaginoplasty or labiaplasty), a Brazilian butt lift, or other body contouring procedures that remove excess fat and tighten loose skin. 

Those who have experienced significant weight loss may even opt for a thigh lift, arm lift, or body lift.

While each additional surgical procedure adds to your total price, combining them is more cost-effective than having multiple procedures over time, for a few reasons:

  • You only have to pay the facility fee and anesthesia fees once
  • Many surgeons discount their fee for add-on procedures
  • Having one recovery period may mean taking fewer days off work

The complexity of each procedure can also be a factor. There are a variety of techniques used to tighten the abdominal muscles, tighten sagging skin, and remove stretch marks.

For example, a mini tummy tuck removes less excess skin and doesn’t require your belly button to be repositioned, so it costs less than a full tummy tuck.

Some women also need diastasis recti repair to address abdominal muscle separation, which inflates their bill.

2. Whether you need an umbilical hernia repair

As we mentioned above, insurance plans often cover a hernia repair. Getting approval for coverage can reduce the total cost of your mommy makeover by covering things like the facility fee, anesthesia, and a portion of the surgeon’s fee.

You’ll need to work with your provider to send your insurance carrier medical documentation of your hernia, to support your insurance claim.

3. Your plastic surgeon’s credentials and experience

Tummy tuck surgery, liposuction, and other mommy makeover procedures are considered safe in experienced hands, but they also come with potentially serious risks if they’re performed incorrectly.

A board-certified plastic surgeon who has been performing this combination of procedures for years (ideally a decade or more) should have the level of advanced training and experience to give you good results in less than six hours—the maximum amount of time it’s considered safe for patients to be under general anesthesia. 

Look for a strong track record of good patient reviews and an extensive before and after photo gallery, too.

While their surgeon’s fee will be higher than someone with less experience, choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon can help reduce your risk of complications and the possible need for revision surgery.

RealSelf Tip: If you’re looking for a cheap mommy makeover, keep in mind that the providers who offer the best prices may not actually be board-certified plastic surgeons (here’s what that means). Some providers take less time with each operation or outsource parts of the surgery to less qualified staff members, which can compromise safety and results. To help ensure you’re choosing the right surgeon, ask these questions at your consultation.

4. Where you have your surgery

Mommy makeover costs can vary by U.S. state, metro area, and sometimes even neighborhood. Practices in high-rent areas typically have to charge more, while those in more affordable locations can offer better prices.

For example:

  • Cancún, Mexico-based plastic surgeon Dr. Marco Carmona reports that the average cost of mommy makeover surgery in his practice is about $10,500. “We consider a mommy makeover a combination of two or more body procedures for women,” says Dr. Carmona. “It could be a tummy tuck with breast augmentation for $10,500, a tummy tuck with liposuction Brazilian butt lift for $10,500, a tummy tuck with a breast lift with implants for $11,700, or liposuction Brazilian butt lift with breast augmentation for $10,000.” 
  • In Miami, Florida, plastic surgeon Dr. Rami Ghurani charges mommy makeover prices between $7,500 and $10,500. 
  • Paramus, New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. N. Bill Aydin says his prices for this operation start at $18,500. 

Another factor is the type of surgical facility. Private surgery centers typically come with lower facility fees than for a hospital operating room. 

If you go this route, just make sure that the private facility is fully accredited, and that your surgeon has hospital privileges nearby, in case of an emergency. 

5. The credentials of your anesthesia provider

If your anesthesia is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist (an MD), it’ll cost more than if it’s administered by a nurse anesthetist.
