How Much Does Breast Augmentation/Enlargement Cost?

Board-certified plastic surgeon, Ronald M. Friedman, M.D., has been performing breast augmentations for over 20 years. He averages about 150 breast augmentations annually. (This is more than four times the number performed by most plastic surgeons.)

Total surgical cost for breast enlargement is $5450 for saline implants and $6750 for silicone gel implants. Dr. Friedman’s price may be about average for the Dallas, Frisco, and Plano areas. But his commitment to your care is anything but average. Look carefully at what is included in the surgical fee:

  1. Surgeon’s fee
    Dr. Friedman is committed to personally performing every part of every surgery. He does not assign any portion of the surgery to physician’s assistants or “sewing assistants.”
  2. Anesthesiologist’s fee
    Dr. Friedman exclusively uses physician anesthesiologists, rather than nurses, to provide general anesthesia. He believes that their extensive training and expertise enhance patient comfort and safety.
  3. Facility fee
    The West Plano Plastic Surgery Center is a nationally-accredited surgery center located on the campus of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Plano. Founded by Dr. Friedman in 2000, the Center strives to provide convenience, comfort, privacy, and safety.
  4. Saline breast implants
    Allergan, a multibillion dollar company, manufactures the Natrelle breast implants that Dr. Friedman most frequently utilizes. We occasionally use breast implants from Mentor, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. Allergan and Mentor manufacture the only FDA-approved breast implants in the United States. Silicone gel implants are also available at an additional cost.
  5. Extended implant warranty
    As part of his commitment to his patients, Dr. Friedman purchases an Allergan Confidence Plus Platinum Warranty for all primary breast augmentation patients. This warranty will cover up to $2400 in costs for an implant deflation that occurs within 10 years of surgery. Translation: if your implant deflates within the first 10 years of surgery, Dr. Friedman will replace it without cost to you. Inclusion of this warranty (above and beyond the standard manufacturer’s warranty) is rare among plastic surgeons.
  6. All postoperative visits
    Rather than deferring your postoperative care to a nurse or medical assistant, Dr. Friedman personally evaluates patients at 1 week, 5 weeks, and 7 months after surgery. Additional visits may be scheduled for any questions or concerns. There is no charge for routine postoperative care.
