Breast Augmentation Cost and Risks
Breast Augmentation with Breast Implants Cost
After deciding on the correct breast implant size, scar, and location, most patients, of course, are concerned about the price of breast augmentation. Similar to breast implant size, the cost of breast implants varies between region of the country and patient. Dr. Jaime Perez at the Plastic Surgery Center of Tampa offers each patient competitively priced breast augmentation and breast implant procedures without sacrificing safety, results, or patient satisfaction.
In Tampa, Florida, the average breast augmentation price varies from $4,500 to $6,500. This average will generally include anesthesia fees, facility fees, surgeon fees, the cost of the breast implants, and all preoperative and postoperative visits. The cost of breast augmentation will increase with the use of silicone implants, prolonged operative times, and complexity.
While the price of breast implants is understandably of particular interest for patients considering breast augmentation, it should not be the only determining factor when choosing the correct surgeon or facility. Choose a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery who operates in a facility accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF).
Breast Augmentation and Breast Implant Risks and Problems-
Like all surgeries, breast augmentation carries with it certain risks and known side-effects. The most common adverse event following breast implant placement is the need for revisionary surgery. It is said that 25% of patients undergoing breast augmentation will require or desire some sort of revisionary procedure within ten years. Common causes for revisionary surgery include the desire to change the breast implant size, breast implant rupture, breast implant malposition, or excessive scar formation (i.e. capsular contracture around the breast implant).
Other known but less common complications of breast augmentation surgery include blood or other fluid collections requiring drainage (1-1.5%), infection (<1%), a change in nipple sensation (10-15%), and interference with mammographic imaging of breast tissue.
Plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery are trained not only in breast implant surgery, but also in diagnosing and appropriately treating the complications and risks of breast augmentation.
Breast Augmentation and Breast Implant Before and After Photos
It should come as no surprise that when a woman first starts researching breast augmentation and searching for a breast implant surgeon, she usually starts by searching the internet for Before and After Breast Augmentation Photos or Before and After Breast Implant Photos. Plastic surgery, and breast augmentation in particular, is a very visual surgery, and patients understandably want to know what results can be expected from a given procedure and plastic surgeon.
Dr. Jaime Perez and the staff and the Plastic Surgery Center of Tampa are proud to showcase her previous patients’ breast augmentation before and after photographs on the website. In addition to those on the website, additional before and after breast implant photographs are available for viewing and discussion during each patient consultation.
