Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift and Breast Implants
What are Breast Augmentation, Breast Implants and Breast Lift?
Before you visit your plastic surgeon, you may wish to understand a bit more about breast implants, breast lift and breast augmentation in order to have a better conversation with your cosmetic surgeon.
Breast augmentation alone cannot correct sagging or drooping breasts. Simply increasing the volume, or size, of the breast will only cause the breast to sag more with time. When performed as a standalone procedure, breast augmentation can increase or balance the size of the breast, restore the breast volume, and restore the shape of the breast after partial or total loss. In contrast, during a breast lift procedure, loose, excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is tightened. As a result, the overall shape of the breasts is improved, and they are lifted to a new, more upright position. In combination, breast implants and a breast lift result in total rejuvenation, not only increasing the size of the breast, but restoring a firmer, perkier appearance as well.
What breast augmentation surgery can do
Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
Improve balance of breast and hip contours
Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
What breast augmentation surgery can't do
Please take note that breast augmentation alone does not correct severely drooping breasts. A breast lift may be required along with a breast augmentation for sagging breasts to look fuller and lifted.
Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation. Your plastic surgeon will assist you in making this decision.
Breast Augmentation Cost
While the most expensive surgeon may not necessarily be "the best", there also may be reasons for a surgeon to charge a relatively lower fees. If "shopping" by phone for the "best deal" in plastic surgery, beware of "low-balling". The low-balling technique is a persuasion tactic in which an item is initially offered at a lower price than one expects in order to get the buyer to commit; then the price is suddenly increased.
Make sure you know what you are quoted; a surgeon’s fee vs. the TOTAL fee for the procedure. The total fee is higher since it would include the surgeon’s fee, the operating room cost, the anesthesia fee and any special charges (such as breast implants) and also the necessary follow up visit/s. In general, the costs for each procedure are a general range for the surgeon's fee, the hospital / surgical center facility fee, and the fee for the anesthetist or anesthesiologist. Be aware that operations whose extent and duration is based on the size of the patient (such as breast augmentation) and other factors cannot realistically be quoted on the phone without an examination.
