Breast augmentation cost depends mainly upon the surgeon you choose and the type of implants you wish to receive. When you meet with Dr. Leif Nordberg at his Stamford, CT, practice, he will provide an estimated cost of treatment based on the refinements you want. His staff excels at helping patients determine financing plans that place the cost of breast augmentation within most budgets.
Your Surgeon's Fees
A surgeon's fees are typically proportionate to qualifications and experience. In other words, a surgeon who has been in practice for many years and has earned a reputation for providing excellent results will almost surely charge a higher fee than a surgeon who has only recently completed his or her residency. This is not to say that a less experienced surgeon is incapable of providing the results you want. However, spending more money to undergo treatment with a surgeon who has performed breast augmentation for many years can increase the likelihood of achieving beautiful results and many years of satisfaction and boosted confidence.
Dr. Nordberg offers three types of breast implants: saline, silicone gel, and cohesive silicone. Each offers unique advantages that may make one choice a better fit for one patient than another. Saline implants typically cost about $1,000 per pair. Silicone implants, which many patients believe feel the most like natural breast tissue, usually cost about $2,000 per pair. Cohesive silicone implants are the latest type of implant, and cost about $3,000 per pair.
Dr. Nordberg has a fully accredited private surgical suite that helps to reduce costs for his breast augmentation patients.
Plastic surgery requires a carefully controlled environment that meets stringent safety standards. Breast augmentation can be performed in a hospital, an ambulatory surgical center (a third-party facility rented by the practice), or a private surgical suite owned and operated by the surgeon. Hospitals are the most expensive option, and are usually only recommended when a patient has health conditions that increase certain risks of surgery. Ambulatory surgical centers will cost less than a hospital. The most economical option is a private surgical suite. Fortunately, Dr. Nordberg has a fully accredited private surgical suite that helps to reduce costs for his breast augmentation patients.
Breast augmentation is typically performed under general anesthesia. Anesthesia can be administered either by a nurse or an anesthesiologist. While an anesthesiologist will cost more than a nurse anesthetist, he or she also has more extensive training, which can ensure a greater degree of safety. Nurses frequently administer anesthesia in complete safety, but many patients experience greater peace of mind when an anesthesiologist is on hand. At our practice, we work with an anesthesiologist in order to ensure your comfort and safety.
