How Much are Breast Implants?
One of the main concerns women have about breast augmentation is the actual cost of the breast implants. While this varies from surgeon to surgeon and the state you live in, it’s important to think about the long-term costs of this procedure as well as the initial cost for primary breast augmentation. For example, if you decide to have primary breast augmentation with silicone gel implants, the FDA recommends you obtain an MRI every two-to-three years after surgery to check for silent rupture. Because these MRIs are typically not paid for by insurance companies, you’ll most likely be paying for these out of pocket. According to Business Insider, the average cost of an MRI is $444 at a freestanding imaging center and $1468 if the MRI is performed at a hospital. If you have silicone gel implants for 20 years, you’re looking at a total cost of anywhere from $10,000-$20,000 for the surgery and the ongoing routine imaging.
The great thing about IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants, before and after in Pleasanton, CA, is that there’s no need to worry about silent rupture. If your implant leaks, you’ll automatically know it because you can see it in a mirror. You won’t have to pay for an expensive MRI. While the IDEAL IMPLANT may cost about $500 more than silicone gel implants upfront, you can leave them in as long as you want, and don’t have to worry about continuously spending money toward imaging maintenance.
Complications CAN Happen
When you ask yourself, “how much are breast implants?” it’s necessary to think about common breast implant complications that can happen after surgery. You can experience both capsular contracture and implant rupture no matter which implant you choose. These complications can result in subsequent surgeries, often not covered under warranty. Silicone gel implants have a higher complication rate for both capsular contracture (10.9-16.2% at seven-to-eight years) and implant rupture (7.2-13.6% at eight years) after primary augmentation than the IDEAL IMPLANT. Capsular contracture with IDEAL IMPLANT occurred in only 6.6% of patients after primary augmentation (at eight years), and only 2.1% of patients experienced implant rupture (at eight years).
Revision surgery on silicone gel implants can be messy and lengthy. Sometimes plastic surgeons have to scoop out silicone gel that has leaked into the breast tissue, and it can be a long procedure. Meanwhile, replacing an IDEAL IMPLANT is straightforward and simple, as the implants are filled with saline which is easily absorbed if an implant ruptures. The surgeon can take out the old one and swap it with a new one, all in under an hour.
