In this article, we’ll go over some of the things you should consider before deciding to have breast augmentation surgery.
Breast augmentation surgery or augmentation mammoplasty on average costs $3,678, according to 2013 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This cost does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses, which can bring up the total average cost closer to $6500.
Also, consider that the longer you have the implants, the more likely you will need to have some type of reoperation due to complications. In some cases where the cost of the original implant is covered by insurance the reoperation will not be covered, leaving the cost to you.
Most health insurance plans will not cover the costs of cosmetic breast augmentation or procedures required from resulting complications. Furthermore, some carriers will even exclude coverage of some breast diseases in patients who have breast implants.
Breast augmentation surgery also requires that you carefully follow specific instructions on cleaning the incision sites and caring for your breast implants to reduce the risk of infection. Patients will also likely have a reduced-activity period and experience soreness and swelling for up to a few weeks.
Depending on the placement of the implant, some patients may not engage in exercise or strenuous physical activity for up to six weeks.
If you also need to miss time from work to recover, this can also add to the cost of having augmentation surgery.
Breast Implants are not lifetime devices and the longer the implant is in your body, the more likely you will have a complication and need additional surgeries.
Some professionals recommend that prospective breast implant patients should assume they will need to have additional surgeries at some point. The harsh reality is that the longer the implanted device is in your body, the more likely those devices will have complications and pose a potential health risk.
If you have your implants removed and not replaced, you may experience changes to your natural breasts such as dimpling, puckering, wrinkling, breast tissue loss, or other undesirable changes. Anyone considering breast augmentation surgery should remember that to be healthy and responsible, your implants will most likely require a lifetime of maintenance and periodic doctor visits.
