Breast Augmentation Surgery in Atlanta
During the initial consultation process, the cosmetic surgeon will discuss various aspects of breast augmentation procedure, including its estimated price tag. Patients can make an informed decision after taking into account various factors and the sticker costs of the procedure. Dr. Wright Jones is a leading breast surgeon offering breast augmentation and other plastic surgery procedures to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta GA, and surrounding communities.
In ideal circumstances, the patient should choose a breast augmentation surgeon with whom she feels comfortable, and whose qualifications, treatment philosophy and previous track record of success in breast surgery offers the best impression. The ASPS recommends that the surgeon’s fee should only be a secondary consideration while making an important decision such as the choice of a plastic surgeon.
Cost and Quality Relationship
In some cases, even a surgeon who charges relatively lower than others may be equally skilled in performing breast augmentation. However, if the price for a particular surgeon appears to be significantly lower than other prices for the same procedure, it should make the patient or anyone skeptical.
Financial figures will also depend on the choice of implants, the quality standards of the surgical facility, fee of the anesthesiologist, and costs of medical tests and accessories. For instance, the price fair for highly cohesive silicone breast implants may be considerably higher than traditional saline implants.
Costs of Surgical Facility
If the surgical facility is accredited by a recognized organization, it will have to maintain stringent standards in terms of safety, sterilization, and expertise of staff members. Meeting these standards is not without a fee, which means the costs of a certified facility will typically be higher than that of a non-certified facility. If the surgeon performs breast augmentation at a local hospital where they have surgical privileges, the financial sacrifice may be slightly higher.
Insurance and Financing
Breast augmentation is usually not covered under health insurance when it is performed primarily or exclusively for aesthetic reasons. However, when it is performed as a medically necessary procedure rather than an elective surgery, full or partial monetary amount of the procedure may be covered by the patient’s health insurer.
Patients should explore financing options well before the date of procedure. Most patients will be eligible for financing through professional medical care finance companies, which can offer low interest rates and convenient payment terms for cases of compassionate finance.
