The cost of breast implant exchange cosmetic surgery is likely to vary between two practices, and may even vary between two patients at the same practice. A number of factors will go into determining the actual cost.
Where the plastic surgery practice is located can make a difference to the overall cost of breast implant exchange procedure. The cost of living will usually differ between two places, and it will impact the average costs of most goods and services, including surgical treatments. For instance, the cost of breast implant exchange in Las Vegas may not be the same as the cost in Ohio.
The fee charged by the cosmetic surgeon will vary, depending on their skills, experience, and reputation in the field of breast implant exchange surgery. However, a procedure such as breast exchange can be a complex surgery, and it should be performed only by a highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon.
Anesthesia and Operating Room Costs
Breast implant exchange surgery will usually be performed under general anesthesia. The fee charged by the anesthesiologist can depend on their qualifications and experience. If the procedure is performed at a state of the art surgical facility with advanced technologies, personalized care and experienced staff, the cost may be a little higher compared to an average operating room.
In many cases, the breast implants are provided with a lifetime replacement warranty. However, the warranty may be applicable only in case of implant damage before a certain period of time. Secondly, many women like to replace implants for aesthetic reasons, and may choose a different type, size or quality of implants even when the previous implants are functioning well.
In such cases, the implant cost will have to be added to the overall cost. The cost of some of the advanced qualities of highly cohesive silicone implants may be higher than other options, but the long term benefits are likely to offset the increased costs.
The average cost of a breast exchange procedure in the United States may range from $8,000 to $15,000, including all possible costs. The cost variation occurs due to several factors as discussed above. The cost of procedure will not be covered under health insurance in most cases because it is an elective surgery performed for aesthetic reasons.
However, the patients can explore various financing options such as personal borrowings from friends or family, bank loans, credit card extended payments, or financing the procedure through professional medical care finance companies. The office of the plastic surgeon may be able to offer guidance or assistance in this regard.
