How Much is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation tops the charts as the most popular plastic surgery procedure. Many women feel that their breasts are too small, too flat, not the right shape, or otherwise do not fit with the rest of them. Breast augmentation can boost your self-esteem and make you feel more like the person you want to be.

Why Get Breast Augmentation?

Women choose breast augmentation for many reasons. Whether restoring volume to breasts after pregnancy or enhancing breast size to provide a more balanced figure, breast augmentation can provide aesthetic and psychological benefits. 

What is Breast Augmentation Like?

Dr. Lawton will work with you to design a treatment plan, including the choice between saline and silicone implants. You will receive general anesthesia during surgery so that you will feel nothing. Dr. Lawton will place your implant through a small incision hidden under the arm, in the crease of the breast, or around the areola. 

Some women may have a breast lift with an augmentation. Dr. Lawton may recommend this if you have sagging breasts or significant amounts of loose skin. This will make sure your implants rest where they should. An augmentation alone cannot correct sagging or loose skin. 

How Much is Breast Augmentation?

Every breast augmentation procedure is different, and costs can vary widely. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average breast augmentation costs $4516. Your total cost will also include items such as medications, hospital fees, anesthesia, and others. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Lawton to get a complete understanding of everything you need to know.

What Is Recovery From Breast Augmentation Like?

Recovery from breast augmentation takes several weeks, although your healing timeline may vary depending on the details of your surgery. Most people can expect to return to work in one to two weeks, although strenuous activity may have to wait for up to a month. 

What Results Can I Expect?

You can expect to see fuller, more shapely breasts that make you feel more confident and self-assured. Your breasts will take a few months to heal and settle into their final shape as the swelling subsides. 

Many women feel much more empowered and confident after a breast augmentation. After being unhappy with your breasts, possibly for many years, seeing them full and rounded can lift your self-esteem tremendously. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

If you want to have larger breasts or breasts with more volume, you may be a good candidate for this surgery. You should be in overall good health and should let Dr. Lawton know if you have any issues with bleeding or clotting. You may still be a good candidate if you have sagging breasts but may also need a breast lift.
