If you are seeking Breast Augmentation surgery in the Fairfax, VA area please consider Victoria Plastic Surgery Center.
The difference between the two is largely a semantic one, breast augmentation is the actual name of the procedures performed to enlarge the breasts, and breast implants refer to the synthetic parts that are inserted surgically into the body to support the process of a breast augmentation.
Clinically, breast augmentation is known as Augmentation Mammoplasty and refers to surgery performed to increase the breast size. The standard procedure for breast augmentation involves the insertion of breast implants beneath the breast or muscle tissue in the chest. The surgery is performed for a variety of reasons, for personal confidence, improvement of appearance, or repair of damage from an accident or medical condition.
According to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of breast augmentation surgery in 2019 was around $4,000. This number does not reflect the whole cost of the procedure and does not include important surgical expenses such as anesthesia, the price of operating room facilities, or any other surgery-related expenses. With these additional expenses, Breast Augmentation Surgery often costs between $5000 to $10000 when all is said and done.
It is also important to note that insurance does not usually cover breast augmentation surgery as it is a cosmetic procedure. Depending on your insurance company, Breast Augmentation surgery may also influence your insurance premiums later in life, which is a factor that is important to keep in mind when considering the surgery. If you are seeking reconstructive breast augmentation due to an injury or surgery, please check with your insurance company regarding coverage as you may be eligible for some compensation on the costs.
Depending on where you have the surgery done and the doctor operating, breast augmentation surgery can be an extremely expensive and possibly life-changing procedure. The effect it has, and the value of that procedure depends largely on the individual. However, with proper understanding of the procedure, the fact that the procedure can drastically improve an individual’s appearance, and the longevity of modern breast implants, many who have received breast augmentation surgery have found the procedure to be worthwhile regardless of the cost.
