Boob Job: How much does it cost?

Boob Job

For anyone thinking about breast augmentation surgery, one of the first questions to consider is: How much does a boob job cost?

Hi! My name is Carrie.  After decades of living with a less than impressive chest, I decided to buy myself new breasts for my 34th birthday–and I couldn’t be happier with the results. However, in the months leading up to my surgery, I couldn’t find reliable information on prices so I started piecing together what I could find for my own personal use.  Since then, I figured that other women would love to have access to my findings so I’ve published it here for your reference.  I hope it helps you as much as it helped me!

So let’s get to it: How much does it cost?  While the answer is easy to define “on average,” there can be quite a bit of variation depending on your area of the country and the physician you choose to perform your surgery.  Luckily, I’ve surveyed over 900 women who have had breast implants and come up with the following statistics on boob job costs.

Median cost: $6,000
Average cost: $6,637

This tells us, that on in most cases we are going to pay between $6,000 and $6,637 for a boob job. That’s a pretty good estimate.

To get an even broader idea of what we might expect to pay, we can look at the range of prices paid by other women.  Based on our data, the low end of the range is $3,500 (the 10th percentile). The high end of the range is $9,500 (the 90th percentile). We can be certain that pretty much everywhere we go, our new boobs will cost us somewhere in that range.

Armed with this information, we can now be savvy shoppers when it comes to our future bosoms!  For example, if a surgeon quotes us $12,000 for a breast augmentation, we would know that he’s past the high end of the range.  Why is he so expensive?  Is he worth the price?  It would be worth talking to some of his clients to find out about their experiences with the surgery and recovery process.

On the other hand, if a surgeon quotes you a price of $1,800, you may want to question that just the same. Why is he so cheap? What are his clients experiences like? Are their boobs even? I’m somewhat kidding, but still, you see why there would be questions.

I hope you feel more informed and confident than you did before you found me.  I wish you good luck, and if you find anyone else asking “How much do breast implants cost?” just send them my way!

Can You Really Increase Your Breast Size Naturally?

This is a guest post from my sister-in-law, Lisa.

Can you really increase you breast size naturally without surgery, pills or creams?

Well, a new website called BiggerBustsNow.com says you can, and thousands of women have already used their strategies. Now, it’s a pretty bold claim, so I wanted to take this ‘Magic Formula’ for a test drive and see for myself if a natural option works.

So to start with, I went to the site and purchased a copy of the ebook so I could put it to the test over the coming weeks. Reading the ebook, I was pleasantly surprised as it was very clear and easy to follow, and in theory, the advice made sense.

The 10 Top Foods To Increase Breast Tissue

The Little Known Super Supplement That Has Already Been Proven To Increase Breast Size

The Top 5 Exercises Which Instantly Make Your Breasts Look Bigger

And much more!

So now was time to put it to the test…

I gave the methods inside a full test run over 6 weeks and with 2 weeks I had already started to notice a difference. It took just under 4 weeks for me to gain one cup size taking me from a B cup to a C cup.

At 6 weeks I had seen even more improvement and was a very full C… I decided to keep going for another week as it would take me to a D cup which was my goal to start with.

When I looked back at the progress and growth I was blown away. I didn’t expect it to work as good as it did and was unsure if I’d see even a small increase but 7 weeks later I was two full cup sizes bigger.

And the best part about the Boost Your Bust method is that you don’t have to go through any expensive and painful surgery.

If you’d like to increase your own cup size then just visit the Bigger Busts Now site below. I recommend the methods 100%!

Cheap Breast Implants

When asking, “How much does a boob job cost?,” the obvious implication is that we want the implants that we choose to be affordable. Cheap breast implants is what we’re after! By cheap, I certainly don’t mean poorly made. And I don’t mean that the surgery is done in a haphazard manner either. Clearly, we are just looking for the best value for our money. Today I’ll show you how to achieve this.

 

Shop Around

As with any major purchase, you’re going to be better off getting more than one quote for your cheap breast implants. Start by surveying your friends who you know have had a boob job to get recommendations for plastic surgeons in your area. Even you don’t know anyone who has had a breast augmentation, one of your friends probably has another friend who has had the procedure done. You’re never more than two degrees of separation away from someone who’s had a boob job!

Cheap Breast Implants

Once you get some names of recommended doctors in your area, schedule a consultation with each one. Let them know that you are in the process of evaluating your options for this important decision. After the first consultation you should have an idea as to what size and type of implants you are interested in. Therefore, you should be able to make an apples to apples comparison of each plastic surgeon’s proposal.

Choosing Between Saline and Silicone

By choosing saline implants, you can lower your boob job cost by $700 – $1,200 (or even more) depending on the surgeon.  Many people consider silicone implants to feel the most natural of the two, but the appearance and touch of the saline implants satisfies many women just as well. This is obviously personal preference, but it’s certainly a good opportunity to save some cash.

Offer To Pay Cash and Pay In Full

If you offer to pay for your breast implants at the time of the surgery in cash or by check you can often negotiate a significant discount off the price of the surgery.  When you finance a surgery with a plastic surgeon’s office, the doctor has to give a cut of the money to a finance company and his office staff has to follow up and collect the money.  If you pay cash, it’s much less of a hassle for him, and he’ll likely reward you for doing so.

Cheap breast implants aren’t just a fairy tale if you take the above steps.  So, the next time someone asks you how much does a boob job cost?, you can help them see that it doesn’t have to be that much.

High Profile Breast Implants

High profile breast implants have become a popular choice for women evaluating their options and wondering “How much does a boob job cost?

A breast implant refers to a medical prosthetic device which is used to correct the form, feel and size of a female’s breast. In today’s world, its implication and uses have increased from just the reconstruction of the breast after breast cancer removal (post-mastectomy), or correction of some congenital deformities and defects of the chest, to augmentation of the breast for aesthetic, beauty and other purposes. This implant is placed either under the chest muscle or under the breast tissue for augmentation or reconstruction purposes. The implants are also used in various revision surgeries for correcting or improving the results of previous,original surgeries. Because of its increasing use for cosmetic purposes, a wide variety of implants are available out in the market.

High Profile Breast ImplantsThe various implants available can be classified according to the filler used in the implant (silicon or saline), surface of the implant (smooth or textured), shape of the implant (round, teardrop, contoured or anatomical) and size or the profile of the implant (high, moderate or low). Selection of the proper type of implant depends not only on the desired look, but also on the present size of the breasts and the overall body contour. The profile of the implant chosen will determine the appearance and look of the implant and also how far the implant would protrude from the chest wall.

High profile breast implants are very popular in these days. The profile is the measure of the volume of the implant and is thus important to determine how big the final result would be. This implant has a smaller base diameter than a normal implant which may hold the same volume. Thus for a given volume, the smaller base diameter will give it a higher projection. The side walls of these implants have more height which prevents the visible rippling of the outer shell. This implants are more suitable for those who have a narrow chest wall and little breast tissue which would not allow them to go for implants with a wider base as then the base would project laterally from their chest wall giving it a very funny and artificial look.

In those having a wide breast base, a high profile breast implant would not be used as it would not match with the overall body shape. Also in those who desire ‘side boobs’, this high profile may not be of help. Even in those with a narrower chest wall, but a large breast width naturally, it may not be possible to have high profile implant. For those who want to maintain their upper natural (flatter) breast slope, these implants are not useful. Still, the correct selection depends much on the desired results, body shape, skin elasticity and sagginess, amount of naturally present breast tissue, etc.

The different manufacturers which make these high profile breast implants include Allergan, Mentor etc. under the names of High profile MemoryGel Breast Implants, Allergan’s Natrelle Saline-Filled and Silicone-Filled Breast Implant, etc. The decision of selecting a correct implant is a complex one and should be taken along with the doctor’s advice.
