Cosmetic Surgery and the Cost of Confidence in Today’s World

Women in today’s world often get teased for how many beauty products they lug around in their purse each day. We may laugh it off or get defensive, but the truth is, those beauty products that we spend much of our precious time and money on are a large part of what helps us succeed in life. In our efforts to appeal to the beauty standard of the world, women feel like they must make their appearance a priority, regardless of what goals they are trying to achieve. Whether we are buying products and cosmetic surgery procedures because of the pressure to look beautiful, to gain a boost of confidence, or both, women are spending a large amount of money in their lifetime on their looks. 

The Culture of Beauty

Society tells girls from a young age, you are your looks. We understand, based on the language of adult women around us and what we see and hear in the media, that though other things we achieve are important, looking beautiful should be our first priority. It should come as no surprise then, that as they’ve become more widely available, we’ve seen an increase in cosmetic surgery and breast implants across the United States. In an article by The Guardian, author Natasha Devon explains, “Neurobiologists now know there is no discernible difference between male and female brains at the point of birth . . . Brain development is determined by what we do, and therefore if, unconsciously, adults steer children towards certain activities based on their gender, they influence how their minds grow on a physiological level. Thus gender bias becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.”

Does Beauty Equal Success? 

We may wish society was different and that everyone was perfectly equal, but the fact of the matter is, with certain beauty ideals ingrained in both men and women for centuries, it’s going to take a long time for things to change. Caring about your appearance is human nature and, in today’s world, striving for beauty is easier than ever through both surgical and non-invasive cosmetic surgery procedures. A woman has to care about her looks “if she wants to realize a comfortable level of success and self-sufficiency. Quite a bit of research has tried to determine how many seconds it takes before a person forms a judgment of someone they meet. Their brains calculate your value in terms of age, social standing, and how approachable you are within thirty seconds or less.” Just as we work hard on other qualities in our life, how we look is part of the personal brand we create. It also, no matter how much we’d like to deny it, affects the way we feel and act. 

Outer Beauty Equals Inner Confidence

Marcia Reynolds, Psy. D., President of Covisioning LLC said, “…Face it, when you look good on the outside, you feel good on the inside. Should it be the other way around? It can be. Your emotions affect your appearance and attractiveness. Your confidence plays into your ability to influence others.” If it requires breast implants or another type of plastic surgery procedure to gain confidence, it may be worth it and save you years of negative thoughts toward yourself. Confidence and how we interpret beauty ideals and the associated means to achieve them are key. According to a study on the impact of makeup by Nancy Etcoff, makeup can provide a fleeting confidence boost to some, while making others feel objectified. If you enjoy getting ready for the day and using beauty treatments or cosmetic surgery as self care initiatives, then the confidence you glean from these activities can truly make you more beautiful to yourself and others. “Grooming rituals can be temporary confidence boosters, and studies suggest that the confidence they inspire is itself attractive.” We can try to change the unrealistic ideals in the media and stop talking negatively to ourselves about our own bodies, and things will slowly begin to change. The best thing we can do is not judge others who don’t share our same views toward cosmetic surgery, whether they’re for or against it. “At best, let’s quit judging each other for what we feel we need to do to get ahead, whether you think wrinkles are a beautiful part of life or not. Better we respect each other for who we are and how we each choose to cope with the realities we face.”

The Cost of Beauty

In our efforts to look our best, women in the United States spend about $300,000 just on their face during their lifetime, according to an article by Allure magazine. And that doesn’t include hair products, facial cosmetic surgery, breast implants, or skin care. “SkinStore surveyed 3,000 women to find out their beauty habits. In addition to the crazy-sounding lifetime cost, the survey says women are walking around with about $8 worth of products on their face per day.” Another thing learned during the survey was that most women apply an average of 16 products to their face before leaving the house. Face wash, toner, serum, eye cream, foundation, mascara, and eyeliner are just some of the products that women can’t leave home without applying. 

Beauty Standards by Location

Who wears the most makeup and spends the most time getting ready changed depending on where they lived. “When it comes to the ‘most expensive faces,’ East Coast women stand out. Women in New York, Connecticut, and West Virginia spend the most with an average ‘face rate’ of $11 . . . This differs dramatically to the West Coast, with women in Utah, Colorado, and Montana spending a much lower $4 on their daily faces . . . Californian ladies are the quickest to get their face ready, taking a speedy 3 minutes . . . This is due to over 70% now using advanced treatment products [and cosmetic surgery procedures] which dramatically improve the appearance of the skin, meaning less time is spent on covering up and enhancing.” 

The Cost of Hair Care

Hair care is a bit less expensive, but still a significant investment for most women. From salon appointments for cuts and coloring maintenance to at-home blow drying and hair products, a survey about how much women spend on hair care conducted by reports that “the average women will drop $55,000 in a lifetime on hair products and treatments . . . Those numbers equate to roughly $80 and 11 hours per month.” These statistics also vary from state to state, but overall, 89% of American women dye their hair to enhance their appearance, meaning that in coloring alone, women are willing to spend a lot of money. 

Confidence Through Cosmetic Surgery

The research supports the idea that our culture’s obsession with women looking beautiful isn’t going to change dramatically for a while. Most women who have a healthy idea of what it means to be confident and beautiful are okay with that. It is worth it to us to spend money every month on hair, skin, and beauty products, and we enjoy the technological leaps that cosmetic surgery has taken-making acne, wrinkles, and sun damage much less visible, therefore making makeup less necessary and confidence more accessible. Emma Campbell, Head of Editorial at SkinStore, said: “There has been a huge rise in advanced treatment products which now solve beauty concerns and transform the skin. These treatments are speeding up makeup application times and giving women newly found confidence every day.”

Breast Implant Technology 

Cosmetic surgery is changing the beauty industry and helping more women feel confident without wearing layers of makeup. Other plastic surgery procedures, like breast implants, tummy tucks, and liposuction can also make a huge difference. When you take the time to think about it, years of trying to find the right clothes to hide your “imperfections” and buying more and more makeup to conceal your wrinkles may be the complicated answer to your quest for beauty and confidence. The easier way is through cosmetic surgery, which is more advanced and natural looking than ever. If you are thinking about getting breast implants, consider the latest in implant technology, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. Designed to give you the natural look and feel of silicone gel implants with the safety of only saline inside, the IDEAL IMPLANT gives women the best of both worlds. Don’t let ridiculous beauty standards break the bank and don’t let anyone shame you for the money you do spend on feeling beautiful. The key is finding the healthy inbetween, where you feel good about how you look so you can focus on what’s more important in life.

How Much Do Breast Implants Cost? The True Cost of Breast Implants

Discovering the True Cost of Breast Implants

If you’re researching “how much do breast implants cost,” chances are you are imagining all the benefits they offer. Breast augmentation is the top cosmetic plastic surgery procedure performed in the United States for a reason. Breast augmentations have a high rate of patient satisfaction according to research. In a study published in the May 2013 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, researchers gathered information from 225 women after their breast augmentations. The study revealed that 91.1% of women felt improved self-esteem, 64.3% had an improved quality of life, and 98.7% would repeat the surgery. But there is another side to breast implants, one you should know about before scheduling your plastic surgery consultation. While the initial costs and satisfaction rates are similar between implant types, the long-term maintenance costs and emotional toll differs in important ways. Silicone gel breast implants carry a high rate of certain complications and an increased anxiety when compared to the newest breast implant on the market, IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants.

Primary Breast Augmentation Costs

How much do breast implants cost? That may seem like a simple question, but like many simple questions there are nuances to it. Primary breast augmentations vary based on location, surgeon, and implant you choose. The cost of a breast augmentation and any subsequent breast procedure is typically not covered by insurance companies because it is an elective, cosmetic procedure. Web MD states that the total cost for a breast augmentation surgery can range from $5,000-$10,000. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2017 the average cost of a breast augmentation was $3,718, however this estimate does not include things like anesthesia and other unavoidable surgical expenses. In 2017 the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery found the average surgeon fees for a breast augmentation with saline implants was $3,515. For silicone gel breast implants it rises to $4,014. Again, these average prices do not include the related medical expenses.

Breast Implant Maintenance Costs

Your primary augmentation is not the only cost you need to factor in when you are asking how much do breast implants cost. Women with silicone gel breast implants must factor in long term maintenance costs. Silicone gel breast implants can have “silent ruptures,” where an implant ruptures without showing any symptoms. The FDA recommends women with silicone gel implants get an MRI scan three years after getting their implants, then every two years for the life of the implant to detect silent ruptures. If a silicone gel implant ruptures, you will need surgery to remove the implant shell and any leaked silicone gel. It is important to remove implants that have ruptured because the silicone gel may begin to leak outside of the capsule and cause painful symptoms. The FDA lists a few of these symptoms as, “a decrease in breast size, change in breast implant shape, hard lumps over the implant or chest area, an uneven appearance of the breasts, pain or tenderness, tingling, swelling, numbness, burning, or changes in sensation.” However, because of the out-of-pocket cost of MRIs, many women skip their recommended MRI scans. According to Business Insider the average cost of an MRI is $444 to $1468. That means if a woman with silicone gel breast implants keeps up with the recommended MRIs she will pay on average $3,108 to $10,276 just for MRIs if her implants stay intact for 20 years. That puts the total cost of silicone gel breast implants closer to $10,000-$20,000 over 20 years, and even more if a revision surgery is needed.

Problems With MRIs

Unfortunately, MRIs come with issues in addition to the financial strain. While the FDA states that an MRI is the best way to detect a silent rupture, many plastic surgeons have reported that it isn’t always accurate. Dr. Sophie Bartsich, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York, tells us,

“I’ve found that sometimes MRIs are not actually very reliable. In some instances, a patient’s MRI said the silicone gel implant had ruptured, and then when I went in to operate on it, it actually hadn’t. I’ve had one or two patients where an MRI showed the implant wasn’t ruptured, but based on my clinical exam I really thought there was a concern, so I went in and it turned out it was ruptured.”

How Much Do Breast Implants Cost Under Warranty?

Manufacturer’s warranty programs can mitigate some of the costs of treating complications. But, the warranty payment is only available if a rupture is detected. Some surgeons fail to inform their patients of the need for periodic MRIs, or downplay the FDA recommendation in order to make a sale. “Many women don’t know about the maintenance costs and potential expenses of silicone gel implants,” reports Dr. Ellen Mahony, board-certified plastic surgeon in Westport, CT.  “Because rupture with a silicone gel implant is ‘silent,’ it can go undetected for an extended period, often not becoming obvious until the process of capsular contraction has begun.” Capsular contraction leads to a more complex surgery. That means added surgical costs which your warranty may not cover.

How Much Do Breast Implants Cost to Remove and Replace?

If your breast implants rupture, or you develop capsular contracture (two of the top reasons for revision surgery according to the FDA), you will need surgery to correct the issue. You can choose to remove your breast implants with or without replacement. This surgery will be similar in cost to your primary breast augmentation, or could be higher depending on the complexity. Again, health insurance companies do not usually cover costs associated with breast implants, even if you have a medical reason to remove them. As stated above, warranties may or may not cover costs as well.

Women with ruptured silicone gel implants also need to factor in downtime when asking how much do breast implants cost. Whether you take time off work, hire a babysitter for your kids, or make other accommodations while you recover from surgery, you need to factor in these costs. Dr. Jane Rowley, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Lubbock, Texas, explains the difference between removal of silicone gel implants and the IDEAL IMPLANT, “there’s a big difference between removing a ruptured IDEAL IMPLANT and a ruptured silicone gel implant. A ruptured IDEAL IMPLANT can be removed easily with a local anesthetic. A silicone gel implant, if they’re not ruptured, can come out that easy. But if they are ruptured, most of the time its stuck, and it bleeds, and you have to put drains in. So it’s not an easy recovery, it’s not an easy surgery. With an IDEAL IMPLANT I can almost guarantee them ahead of time, if your implant is leaking it will be easy to remove and replace, you will be back to work in a day or two at the most. With a silicone gel implant I’ll say, ‘I don’t know what your recovery is going to be, it might come out easily, it might not come out easily. You might need to take week off work, you might have to take two days off work.’”

The Likelihood of Subsequent Surgeries

Many women are tempted to brush aside the idea of complications when asking how much do breast implants cost, thinking it won’t happen to them. Knowing your statistical risk of complications will help you plan ahead and pick an implant that is more likely to keep you out of complex surgery in the future. For primary augmentations, silicone gel implants have a higher complication rate for both capsular contracture (10.9-16.2% at 7-8 years) and implant rupture (7.2-13.6% at 8 years), than the IDEAL IMPLANT. “The silicone gel from a ruptured implant can stick to the tissues on the chest wall and a capsulectomy is often required,” explains Dr. Mahony. “The warranty may not fully cover these costs. In contrast [for primary augmentations] structured breast implants have a capsular contracture risk of only 6.6% and a rupture risk of only 2.1% at seven years, with revision surgery generally being less invasive.” Dr. Larry Nichter, board-certified plastic surgeon in Newport Beach, California, tells us about the likelihood of subsequent surgeries with IDEAL IMPLANT saying, “It’s incredibly safe and so there’s far fewer lifetime surgeries with an IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant, compared to silicone gel implants.”

Emotional Toll of Silicone Gel Breast Implants

In addition to the financial cost of breast implants, women need to be aware of the emotional cost when asking how much do breast implants cost. Not knowing the status of their implants can take a toll on woman’s peace of mind. Recent survey findings* showed over 98% of women reported feeling concerned about silent rupture, including many women who already had silicone gel implants. When rupture is detected, it can result in feelings of insecurity and anxiety, as they don’t know how long it has been going on or whether they could have found out sooner. Both the worry and reality of silent rupture take a real toll on a woman’s overall well being, yet too many women don’t have all the facts before making a decision about their choice of implant.

How Much Do Breast Implants Cost With IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants?

The IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant is often compared to silicone gel breast implants because they both offer beautiful, natural looking results. But, beyond the aesthetic comparisons, the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant and silicone gel breast implants are very different. The IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant is filled with saline for a woman’s peace of mind. Saline is naturally absorbed by the body in case of a rupture, and a rupture can be easily detected by simply looking at the breasts. Without silicone gel inside there is no need for repeated MRIs and no anxiety about silent ruptures. The risk of complications such as rupture and capsular contracture are also much lower with the IDEAL IMPLANT based on clinical trial results at 8 years. That means the cost of your primary breast augmentation is likely the only cost you need to consider when asking how much do breast implants cost.

How to Choose Breast Implants

When you choose a breast implant, you are choosing a device that will be part of your body for many years. Breast implants are not lifetime devices, but if your implants do not encounter complications, there is no reason for a revision. Your implants could be with you for over 30 years, so you should spend some time weighing the benefits and compromises of each implant type. Pick an implant that you feel comfortable with, but also gives you great results. The IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant the lowest rates of rupture and capsule contracture in primary augmentation at 8 years, but still gives women a beautiful, natural look and feel. Silicone gel breast implants give women beautiful results, but at an increased financial strain and emotional toll, Dr. Mahony tells us.

“The old saline implants offered peace of mind but a less realistic result; silicone gel implants offered a more realistic look and feel but with concerns about silent rupture as well as long term safety and complications. The timing could not be better for the structured breast implant, which uniquely offers women the benefits of natural look and feel in addition to an unparalleled safety profile and peace of mind. This would be my personal choice for breast augmentation and has become the choice the majority of informed women in my practice are making for themselves.”

Mountain View Breast Augmentation Cost Explained

Curious about Mountain View breast augmentation cost? Many doctors have a cost breakdown, but often this includes only upfront costs and does not mention long-term maintenance costs. Dr. Robert Lowen, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Mountain View, now offers the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant because he knows many patients have concerns about long-term maintenance, appearance, and peace of mind.

Maintenance Costs of Silicone Gel Implants

Silicone gel implants are a popular choice for many women around the country because they give women natural feeling results. Silicone gel, however, carries the risk of a “silent rupture.” If the implant ruptures, you can only tell through an MRI. The FDA recommends women get these expensive procedures every few years to detect a rupture. Insurance companies do not always pay for the MRIs, so women are left paying for this procedure out of pocket. Also, the rupture rate and capsular contracture rate of the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant is lower over a seven-year period than the silicone gel implants. If you’re researching Mountain View breast augmentation cost, you need to factor in these frequent MRIs and the potential for ruptures and capsular contracture before you move forward with a silicone gel implant.

Peace of Mind, Low Maintenance

The IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant gives women the natural feel and beautiful results of silicone-gel implants and the peace of mind of saline implants. Because of its internal structure, the IDEAL IMPLANT has stability and does not ripple easily like other saline-filled implants. As a saline-filled implant, it gives women peace of mind that they will not have a “silent rupture” and will not need an MRI to detect ruptures. Peace of mind, low maintenance, and beautiful results are all possible with the IDEAL IMPLANT.

What a “Boob Job” Means for Your Wallet

While a “boob job” might be expensive, the rewards of confidence, self-love, and a better body contour are well worth it.

“Boob Job” Expenses

Breast implants are like any other outpatient surgery. Keep this in mind when calculating your overall budget and check with your health insurance agency to see what they are willing to cover or provide discounts on. Dr. Kevin Brenner’s office in Beverly Hills is one of the few places that now offers the new IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. Cost of implants varies depending on the type and size you choose.


After years of research and testing, as well as consulting many women and plastic surgeons, a design of a new saline-filled breast implant, now known as the IDEAL IMPLANT has been accomplished. It has everything you want when considering breast implants.

  • Approved by the FDA
  • Lowered edges, allowing it to contour better to the breast wall
  • Designed to combine the best of both saline and silicone gel implants
  • The natural result of silicone gel with the safety of saline

Dr. Kevin Brenner’s Thoughts on the IDEAL IMPLANT

“As far as I am concerned, this structured implant has completely replaced standard saline implants in my breast augmentation practice. Number one, because of the chambered environment inside the implant, saline does not slosh around inside of the device. Number two, the shape of the IDEAL IMPLANT is far superior to standard saline implants. Because the edges of the implant lay closer to the chest wall, the result is a far more natural look. Number three, in my experience the IDEAL IMPLANT tends to ripple far less than standard saline implants. Although all breast implants will ripple to some degree, IDEAL IMPLANTS do so less frequently than the standard saline implant.”
