Question: I am considering breast implants, but would really like to know my total out of pocket expenses before I go through with breast augmentation surgery. How much will this procedure cost?

Answer: This depends on several factors. In the United States, and Australia where I practice, the price is higher than it would be in say Thailand or perhaps Mexico. The important factors that round out your decision should be more than price, so consider the following to ensure you have a safe surgery that delivers the best results. • Which surgeon is performing the surgery, and have they provided you with follow up arrangements or a fee to provide a revision, if you are unhappy with the results? • Are you visiting an accredited facility? • Which implant option have you chosen? In the end, your physician should be able to provide you with an itemized invoice for the total cost of your surgery.
