Breast Augmentation Cost
For many women, breast augmentation has a profound and priceless impact on their lives. Women who once felt self-conscious about their small or sagging breasts often report enhanced confidence after undergoing breast augmentation. They often feel more connected to their femininity, and enjoy expanded wardrobe options.
Breast augmentation cost at our Northern Virginia clinic varies from patient to patient and is largely dependent on the type of breast augmentation performed. At Mountcastle Plastic Surgery, we offer two variations of the procedure – breast implants and fat transfer. Schedule a consultation with our practice today to learn more about the cost of breast augmentation. We will work closely with you to help you understand every aspect of this procedure.
TYPES OF BREAST AUGMENTATION
Breast implants, the most common type of augmentation, are made of a silicone shell and can be filled with either saline or silicone gel. Silicone breast implants are typically more expensive than saline implants. Dr. Mountcastle always discusses the advantages and disadvantages of both types of implants to help patients choose the one that is right for them. With both types of implants, Dr. Mountcastle inserts the implant above or behind the pectoral muscle through a small incision that is precisely placed to hide any scarring. Silicone breast implants are already filled at the time of placement, and saline breast implants are filled after they are in place. Dr. Mountcastle then closes the incision with surgical tape or sutures. Patients usually experience some soreness immediately after their procedure.
Breast augmentation using fat transfer is a newer method, and we are proud to be one of the few clinics to offer this state-of-the-art procedure. This type of breast augmentation involves removing fat from one part of the body, such as the stomach, thighs, or hips. The doctor will then transfer the fat to the breast through micro-incisions. Dr. Mountcastle is an expert in this specialized type of breast surgery and studied with Dr. Kamran Koobehi, a leader and innovator of fat transfer breast augmentation.
