Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular and effective plastic surgery procedures available to women. In fact, breast augmentation was one of the top five most performed cosmetic surgical procedures in 2020 with nearly 200,000 completed. 

And when you see the stunning results offered from this procedure, it’s no surprise that so many women want to have their breasts improved, especially in a city like New York!

As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, one of the most common questions that prospective patients have about breast augmentation is what the cost will be. The answer to this question can be a bit tricky, since there is no single, set menu price. 

Instead, numerous factors contribute to breast augmentation cost, including the location. 

Because New York City has many options of cosmetic surgery centers and surgeons, it is important to make sure that you are choosing your surgeon based on their ability and knowledge rather than simply their price tag. 

Below, you will find information to help you better understand what goes into the cost of your breast augmentation surgery

What Are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that helps to improve breast size, shape, and volume. This is achieved with the use of breast implants that help to create a more aesthetically pleasing breast shape and a larger, fuller breast size. 

Not only can you achieve bigger and more shapely breasts, but you can expect to have improved confidence after your breast augmentation procedure. Additionally, you can look forward to wearing clothes that you always wanted to wear but never had the breasts to pull off!

What Goes Into Breast Augmentation Cost?

As mentioned above, the cost of breast augmentation is dependent on several different factors. Below is a list of some of these factors:

Implant Type 

The specific implant material used will impact the price of your augmentation surgery. An example of this is that silicone implants tend to be more expensive than saline implants. However, these implant types are not interchangeable as there is a difference in the results (appearance and feeling) with the different implant material. 

Additionally, there are other factors to decide about the implant, including the shape and the texture of the implant.

Surgical Technique

The incision location used for your breast augmentation will affect the overall cost of the procedure. 

At New Look New Life, our skilled cosmetic surgeons offer the inframammary incision technique (where the incision is made beneath the breast, in the inframammary fold), the periareolar incision (where the incision is made around the nipple), and the transaxillary incision (where the incision is made within the armpit).

 Additionally, the location placement of the implant (submuscular or subglandular) can impact the overall cost of the procedure.

Anesthesia Fee

This fee covers the cost of anesthesia used for the procedure (which varies based on the type of anesthesia and amount used) and the cost of the anesthesiologist (who is present during the procedure and is responsible for regulating the amount of anesthesia you receive as well as your safety during the surgery).

Facility Fees

This fee is made up of various aspects for the procedure, including the cost of nurses, medical materials, and other necessities required for a successful procedure.

Surgeon’s Fees

The easiest way to understand this fee is to think of it as the cost of labor for your cosmetic surgeon. 

Combined Procedures

The cost of your procedure can be increased if you choose to combine any procedures with your breast augmentation. 

However, performing procedures together can cut down on the overall cost opposed to having these surgeries performed at separate times (since you are only paying for the anesthesia and facility fees once). 

One of the most common procedures combined with breast augmentation surgery is breast lift surgery (mastopexy), which lifts sagging breasts to a perkier, more youthful height.

What Is the Best Way to Find Out the Cost of My Breast Augmentation?

While you can try to calculate the various fees and hypotheticals to find out your potential cost, the best way to determine what the actual cost of your actual breast augmentation cost will be is to schedule a consultation at New Look New Life. 

There, you will be able to choose the various materials and discuss the different techniques and costs for your potential procedure. 

Additionally, at New Look New Life, we are proud to offer financing options, which will be discussed at your breast augmentation consultation.
