What You Need to Know About Breast Augmentation Surgery

If you're considering breast augmentation surgery, you're probably a little concerned about a few things. What will the surgery be like? How long does recovery take? Is it painful? Is it expensive? What size breasts are best? Here's what you need to know about breast augmentation surgery, including the answers to all of those questions.

Breast Augmentation Prices: What's the Total Cost of Surgery?

When most people think of breast augmentation surgery, they automatically assume that a high price tag goes along with it. You may be happy to know that the cost of breast augmentation surgery is relatively inexpensive: The average price is $3,822, and our practice only charges $3,750 for standard saline breast implants. Silicone breast implants are generally a bit higher. For this, Feagin & Owen's price is $4,550 for a standard surgery. Of course, these are estimates based on a standard breast augmentation surgery, so your exact cost may vary if there are additional expenses required for your situation. The doctors at Feagin & Owen will give you an exact quote at your visit. When considering the total cost of most types of surgery, most people agree that breast augmentation surgery is relatively inexpensive. Many patients take advantage of financing options, which are available with no interest for patients with approved credit.

Breast Augmentation Surgery and Recovery Process

Many patients also have lots of questions about the breast augmentation surgery process and recovery time. Breast augmentation surgery is fairly straightforward. We use anesthesia throughout the surgery to minimize your discomfort. After surgery, you'll be given pain medication to manage discomfort during recovery. Most patients say that the pain is minor, usually less than they anticipated.

Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift and Breast Sizes

Women choose breast enhancement surgery for a multitude of reasons. Some women simply want to restore fullness to their breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Others would like just a little lift. Some wish to turn heads when they walk into a room. Others would prefer to blend into a crowd. If you're having trouble choosing the best breast size, please know that you're not alone. This is a common decision many patients struggle with before surgery, and your doctor is trained to help you find the best size for your breast augmentation. Your surgeon can also help you choose the best type of breast implant, the best placement for your breast implant and the best location for the incision. Ultimately, these decisions are up to you, but the doctors at Feagin & Owen are happy to answer any questions you may have and guide you along the way.
