  • breast enhancement prices globally
  • how much different breast implants cost

What Is the Average Breast Augmentation Surgery Cost?

The minimum breast surgery cost is $1,350; the maximum reaches $20,000. The average cost of boob implant surgery is $6,100, according to Bookimed data collected across 25 countries. At the same time, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that the average price for breast augmentation is $4,500 across the USA.

However, the price for breast enlargement surgery is not constant and varies drastically, depending on the country. For instance, you will pay for breast implant surgery for about $3,000 in Turkey, $3,500 in Mexico, $4,000 in Thailand or the Czech Republic. So, you may choose the most appropriate option according to your location and budget limit.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to perform mammoplasty with the aim to enlarge the breasts. It can be managed using:

  • breast implants
  • fat transfer.

The price for mammoplasty with implants usually costs higher than fat transfer. However, fat graft mammoplasty can be more expensive in the end. It requires liposuction and further transferring of the received fat tissues. As a result, it takes 2-3 interventions instead of one as in case with breast enlargement with implants.

Dr. Sadeq Zghair, Bookimed medical coordinator, comments:

Sadeq ZghairBreast implants should be changed in 13-15 years after their installation. The risk of implant damage increases after this time period.

Also, patients aged 45+ years old should consider that in 7-9 years, there is a possibility of breast sagging. So, a further breast lift may be recommended. Pick optimal implant volume(250-350 ml) and follow doctors’ recommendations to preserve the result after breast augmentation.

What Aspects Affect Breast Augmentation Cost?

If you want to know exactly how much it costs to get a boob job, you need to start with a plastic surgeon’ consultation. However, you can also check the list below to find out what factors affect the ultimate breast enhancement price:

  • A country. Each country has its unique price policy that affects the internal cost of goods, food, and medical services. Due to this, the amount of breast enhancement fee also depends on where an operation is carried out. For instance, the same boob job procedure will cost about $2,500-$4,000 in Turkey or Mexico, and reach up to $10,000-$12,000 in the UK or the USA.
  • An operation type. As we mentioned above, it is possible to enhance your breast with implants or your own fat. The costs of these 2 different operations vary and it is difficult to say what option will be cheaper. For instance, during breast augmentation with fat transfer, it requires liposuction for fat tissues extraction. Then it takes 1-2 operations to fill the breasts with the received fat. So in some cases, fat grafting may be even more expensive than a breast augmentation procedure with implants.
  • Implant type. The implant type drastically impacts the price. For instance, the saline implant cost is lower than the silicone one. The implant form also affects the cost: teardrop implants are usually more expensive than round ones.
  • Plastic surgeon's experience. More qualified and experienced plastic surgeons usually provide their services for higher fees. However, the doctor’s skills are a crucial factor that determines future results. So it is not reasonable to entrust your body to newbies in plastic surgery.
  • Additional expenses. When you request a breast enhancement price, always specify what components it covers. Some clinics can offer the cost for breast augmentation surgery for one breast without adding such fees as anesthesia, consultation with a doctor, medical consumables, etc. So, it is crucial to get detailed info about pricing.
