A woman in a black bra seen in profileMany patients in the Tampa area have come to visit Dr. John W. Tyrone given his expertise and knowledge with regard to breast augmentation surgery. Fully customized breast augmentation can enhance all of a woman’s curves, enhancing the femininity of their figure and improving overall self-confidence in the process.

While breast augmentation may be of great benefit to many patients, the cost can become a factor when making decisions about surgery. We’d like to cover some of the basics when it comes to the cost of breast augmentation surgery and the options available for payment.

The Average Cost of Breast Augmentation Surgery

The average cost of breast augmentation surgery can vary a fair amount from patient to patient based on so many different factors. For that reason, we do not feel that an average price or even a general price range would convey all of the factors that go into determining the price of a breast augmentation procedure.

With this in mind, we would be more than happy to discuss your aesthetic goals in more detail during a consultation at the practice. During this visit, we will be more than happy to provide you with a personalized price quote.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Breast Augmentation

The following factors can affect the total cost of a breast augmentation surgery:


  • The location of the plastic surgery practice

  • The plastic surgeon or surgeons at the practice and their credentials

  • The complexity of a patient’s case

  • The need for multiple breast enhancement surgeries (e.g., combined augmentation and lift)

  • Special discounts and promotions offered by individual practices

A full breakdown of associated costs for your procedure can be provided during your consultation with us.

Will health insurance cover the cost of breast augmentation?

No.

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic/elective procedure, so it is rarely if ever covered by health insurance.

Will flex spending accounts (FSAs) cover the cost of breast augmentation?

No.

While certain surgical expenses are covered by FSAs that would not be covered by medical insurance, the cosmetic and elective nature of breast augmentation surgery precludes it from being covered by an FSA. This same issue holds true with other cosmetic surgery procedures.

Monthly Financing for Breast Augmentation Surgery

Given that insurance and FSAs do not cover breast augmentation surgery, many patients wonder how they can afford the procedure. Monthly financing is a great option to consider if you have been mulling over the idea of undergoing breast augmentation. Financing plans operate much like a traditional loan or credit card, with a trusted third-party lender covering the total cost of surgery and the patient responsible for paying back the lender on a monthly basis.

Interest will apply to the total amount owed, but the budgeting and scheduling of financing plans is helpful to many patients who would not otherwise have surgery as an option within reach.
