Breast Augmentation Cost

When performed by a plastic surgeon who specializes in reconstructive breast surgery, breast implants can be a worthwhile investment.

If you're considering this procedure, you may be wondering about the different variables that contribute to the overall cost.

Dr. Oren Lerman in Manhattan, NY, can inform you of the breast augmentation costs you may encounter.

Understanding Breast Augmentation Cost

Breast implants

If you are considering surgery to enhance your bust, you are likely curious about treatment costs. As an individualized procedure, every breast augmentation surgery is designed to meet each patient's unique goals and needs.

The industry average for breast implants in the United States is about $4,516, but no two procedures are the same, so the total price of treatment can vary substantially.

To help you better understand breast augmentation costs, Dr. Oren Lerman can meet with you at his Manhattan practice and discuss the specifics of your procedure. To find out how much it will cost to achieve your aesthetic goals, and how a breast augmentation can fit within your budget, schedule your consultation with us today.

Investing in Your Confidence

Your breast augmentation procedure is an investment in yourself, so it is advisable not to compromise your aesthetic goals in an effort to save money. In addition, choosing a surgery that may initially be more economical can end up costing more money in the long run. Revision surgeries to correct any number of problems can be more expensive than the initial breast augmentation procedure. Selecting a respected surgeon with a proven track record of safety and successful outcomes can minimize your chances of complications and help ensure that you receive the beautiful results you deserve.

Choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon to Perform Your Breast Augmentation

Dr. Lerman is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a status that must be earned through the completion of various requirements like the passage of rigorous written and oral examinations. 

Dr. Lerman has trained at some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the country, including New York University Medical Center, and completed an extra fellowship in breast surgery at the University of Pennsylvania. By choosing a doctor with the proper skill set and years of experience, you are taking a great step to protect your health and satisfaction in your improved appearance.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

When performed by a credentialed surgeon with exceptional skill and an eye for detail, breast augmentation can provide the patient with a number of benefits. Many of our breast augmentation patients report that they enjoy:

Enhanced body image

Improved self-confidence

Better-fitting clothes

Ability to confidently wear items that they would not have before

Our Technology Allows You to Envision Your Investment

Dr. Lerman offers Crisalix 3D simulation technology which enables you to preview how you will look after your breast implants are placed. You can choose between various sizes of saline implants and silicone implants to help guide your decision.

This advanced visualization typically comes with a cost. However, through Dr. Lerman, you can receive simulations completely free of charge by using his dedicated Crisalix link.

Does Insurance Cover Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast augmentation that is performed for cosmetic reasons is not usually covered by insurance. However, your breast augmentation may be covered if it is for reconstructive purposes. An example of this would be a breast implant procedure that restores the appearance of the breast after a mastectomy.

Our plastic surgery team is happy to answer any questions you may have about insurance coverage.

Pairing an Augmentation With a Lift Increases Cost & Effect

Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, addresses breast sagging and asymmetry. If these are your primary concerns, a breast lift may be the right procedure for you. However, it is critically important to note that, unlike breast augmentation, a breast lift cannot increase size.

These commonly compared procedures do not need to be pitted against one another. In fact, many of our Manhattan patients combine breast implants with a breast lift to achieve the most pronounced change possible.

The average price of a breast lift is $5,012 and the average cost of breast augmentation is $4,516, but if you combine these procedures, you can save yourself some time and money.
