How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost In Maryland?
Breast augmentation remains an incredibly popular surgical procedure in the US. In fact, data from the Aesthetic Society shows it’s the second-most performed cosmetic surgery in the country, after liposuction.
It isn’t the most expensive procedure available (excluding combination procedures, data shows the most expensive are facelifts), but it’s certainly not cheap either. So, with the volume of patients undergoing the procedure yearly, it’s no surprise that breast augmentation contributes 14% of all revenue from cosmetic surgery each year.
But how much does breast augmentation cost, exactly?
As a prospective patient, it can be really useful to understand the factors that influence the price, and what you can expect from surgeons in your local area (as prices change based on where you are).
Let’s take a look!
Breast Augmentation Cost In Maryland
The typical cost for breast augmentation surgery in Maryland is between $4,000 and $10,500. This was estimated using the pricing calculator from the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
For reference, at our surgical practice in Maryland, the average breast augmentation costs $6,900. This puts us around the mid-point for the market, based on the range above.
But before you start comparing fees, it’s crucial to understand what a price includes. For example, our fees are always presented as an all-in-one, comprehensive price that includes every possible cost, such as:
- Surgeon Fee: This is the cost for the plastic surgeon to perform the procedure. It takes into account the surgeon’s expertise, experience, and reputation in the field.
- Facility Fee: The facility fee covers the cost of the surgical center or hospital where the procedure is performed. This ensures the facility is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and adheres to safety standards.
- Anesthesia Fee: Administering anesthesia ensures that the procedure is painless for the patient. The anesthesia fee covers the cost of the anesthesiologist who administers the anesthesia and monitors the patient during surgery.
Maryland vs. The National Average
To put the Maryland prices into perspective, let’s compare them with the national average in the USA. The Aesthetic Society’s research for 2022 shows the national average cost for breast augmentation was $4,617.
However, this figure only represents the surgeon’s fee. When considering other additional costs like facility and anesthesia fees, it’s clear that the national average will be higher.
Factors Affecting The Cost
While our practice’s price gives an average figure for the cost of breast augmentation in Maryland, prices can still vary based on several factors:
- Surgeon’s Experience: Surgeons with extensive experience and a strong reputation might charge more for their expertise.
- Type of Implant: The choice between saline and silicone implants, or newer options, can influence the final cost.
- Complexity of the Procedure: More intricate procedures or combined surgeries might increase the price.
- Geographical Location: Prices can fluctuate based on the region, with urban centers often being more expensive than rural areas.
- Post-Operative Care: Aftercare, including follow-up visits, medications, and special garments, can also affect the total cost.
Breast augmentation is a significant decision that shouldn’t be solely based on cost. It’s crucial to prioritize the surgeon’s expertise, the safety of the facility, and the quality of results.
