How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?

An important consideration with any elective surgery is the cost involved. At our practice, breast augmentation procedures range from $4600 to $6000. This price varies with the amount of surgical time, anesthesia fees, type of breast implants, and whether other procedures are performed during the same surgery. Saline implants are the most affordable; cohesive silicone implants (gummy bears) cost the most. We offer simple financing options.

  • Breast implant type, size, and placement

  • Personal preference for scar location
  • Expectations

How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?

Dr. Cambeiro performs breast augmentation accompanied by a board-certified anesthesiologist for the highest level of safety and care. He makes small incisions in the breast crease, around the nipple, or in the armpit through which he creates a space (called a pocket) for each breast implant. He typically places the breast implants behind the chest muscle (submuscular placement); he may place them on top of the chest muscle (subglandular placement) if the patient has enough breast tissue to cover the implants.

Because this patient had a good amount of her own breast tissue, Dr. Cambeiro placed saline implants on top of the chest muscle (subglandular placement).

*Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

After inserting each implant and ensuring that the breast size and shape are just right, Dr. Cambeiro closes the incisions with dissolvable sutures and seals them with surgical tape.

The procedure typically takes between 1 and 2 hours to complete. Patients usually go home the day of surgery.

Breast Augmentation Recovery Timeline

The following timeline will give you an idea of what to expect during your recovery period, but keep in mind that each patient is unique. If other procedures are combined with your breast augmentation, such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, you will have additional factors to consider during recovery.

"Postoperatively, we a have unique open-door policy. We welcome breast augmentation patients to come in for any amount of time, so we can help with questions and concerns."

1 to 2 days

  • You should have help for getting up and around, taking medications, eating, and drinking. During the first 12 to 24 hours you will follow a liquid diet and gradually return to solid food as tolerated.
  • Although you may feel tired and sore, you will need to get out of bed and walk within hours of your surgery to reduce the risk of blood clots.
  • Any discomfort can usually be controlled with prescription medication.

2 to 3 Days

  • You may bathe as long as you do not submerge the incisions. After 3 days, showering is usually permitted, but the incisions should not be submerged, such as in the bathtub or swimming pool.
  • You'll start wearing a zip-front sports bra 24/7.

First Week

  • Antibiotics are continued for 5 days after the procedure to lower the risk of infection.
  • Most patients are ready to return to work within 5 to 7 days.
  • Dr. Cambeiro will teach you how to perform specialized implant massage several times a day. Some data suggests this implant manipulation reduces the incidence of capsular contracture to keep the breasts soft over time.

2 to 3 Weeks

  • Your breasts will probably be sensitive to direct stimulation for 2 to 3 weeks.
  • You may experience a burning sensation in your nipples for about 2 weeks, but this will subside gradually.

6 Weeks

  • You will be ready to stop wearing the special sports bra.
  • You will be able to resume your regular exercise program, including lifting and strenuous workouts.
  • Swelling will likely have gone down and your fuller breasts will feel softer and look more natural.

Breast Augmentation FAQ

Dr. Cambeiro has probably heard every question imaginable related to breast augmentation. Here, he answers some of the more common ones.

Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation?

The ideal breast augmentation candidates are healthy, adult women with realistic expectations who want to improve their appearance and self-confidence. I tell patients that it's important to choose this procedure for their own reasons, not to make someone else happy.

Why do patients choose you over other surgeons?

Most women do a lot of research before choosing a surgeon to perform their breast augmentation. Patients choose me because of my personalized care and approach to their surgery. I sit down with them and discuss all the options, along with the pros and cons, and pick the approach that is most suitable to their needs. I receive a lot of word-of-mouth referrals from women who are extremely happy with their experience and their results.

Can you perform breast augmentation without scars?

I perform endoscopic breast augmentation for most women considering breast enlargement who want to avoid a scar on the breast. For this technique, I use only saline breast implants because they are filled after they are inserted. I make a tiny incision in the natural crease of the armpit and perform the surgery guided by a tiny camera with a light attached called an endoscope. I have performed hundreds of these procedures with consistently beautiful results.

Will breast augmentation fill out my breasts and take care of sagging?

In some cases, minor sagging can be corrected with breast implants. If your nipples have descended below the breast crease or are angled downward instead of forward, it's likely you need a breast lift. By combining breast lift with augmentation, I can reshape the breasts, while making them larger, for a beautiful, more youthful look.

Will I be able to breastfeed after having breast augmentation?

If you intend to breastfeed in the future, I can use surgical techniques that avoid the nipples and milk glands. By doing so, it will be unlikely that the surgery will affect your ability to breastfeed. If you plan to become pregnant in the near future, you might want to postpone surgery, because pregnancy and breastfeeding are likely to stretch out your breasts.

Having babies took a toll on my breasts and my belly. How do I choose between breast augmentation and a tummy tuck?

You may not have to choose. It is perfectly safe for most women to have both procedures performed together in what is often called a mommy makeover. In doing so, you get both areas improved with a single surgery and recovery period. In many cases, the cost ends up being lower than it would have been if the procedures were performed as two separate surgeries.
