He will discuss the cost aspects of each breast surgery procedure during the initial consultation to help the patient make an informed decision.

Cost Variations

Each breast surgery procedure has its own intricacies, and may cost differently compared to other procedures. For instance, breast augmentation procedure involves the cost of breast implants, which is not the case with breast lift or breast reduction surgeries.

In some cases, breast augmentation and breast lift may be performed in conjunction, which will lead to cost escalation to some extent. The extent of surgery involved in a particular case, and the length of a procedure will also contribute to the overall cost of a breast surgery procedure.

Basic Cost Contributors to Breast Surgery

Various factors go into determining the overall cost of a breast surgery procedure at a particular practice. The costs may also vary from one patient to another at the same practice. Some cost factors are common to all breast surgery procedures, as follows:

Practice Location

The cost of breast surgery in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, CA and nearby areas is likely to be different from the average cost of the same procedure in Connecticut. The cost of living can vary at different geographical locations, which will impact the average cost of most products and services, including plastic surgery services.

Surgeon’s Fee

A breast surgeon may charge a fee depending on their skills, experience, and recognition in the field of breast surgery. Some surgeons are more in demand for breast procedures, and may be hard-pressed for time. Their fee may be relatively higher than other surgeons.

Surgical Facility and Anesthesia Costs

The surgeon may decide to perform a particular breast surgery procedure under general anesthesia or IV sedation and local anesthesia. The anesthesiologist’s fee may vary in each case. This usually depends on the qualifications and experience of the anesthesiologist. The quality of comforts and services, technologies, and experienced staff available at a particular surgical facility may determine the charges of the facility.

Average Costs

The average cost of a breast surgery procedure may range from $8,000 to $15,000, depending on the type of procedure and various factors involved. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the average cost of breast augmentation surgery in the U.S. in 2012 was $3,543. The average cost of breast lift in the same year was $4,332. However, ASPS clarified that these costs are exclusive of the costs of anesthesia, operating room costs, and other related expenses.

Insurance and Financing

If the breast surgery is performed for aesthetic reasons, the cost will not be covered under health insurance. However, patients can seek various financing options through banks and financial institutions, friends and family, office, and other sources. Professional medical care finance companies also offer competitive financing for most aesthetic and medical procedures.

Farbod Esmailian | Plastic Surgery

Breast Surgery Orange CountyDr. Farbod Esmailian is an experience plastic surgeon providing a number of breast surgery procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction. Patients in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, CA, and other areas have an opportunity to receive state of the art treatment from Dr. Esmailian.

Common Breast Surgery Procedures

Breast implant surgery is one of the most popular aesthetic breast surgery procedures in the United States today. The procedure involves surgical insertion of saline or silicone implants in the breast tissue to enhance their size, volume, and fullness. The procedure is typically performed on women who are unhappy with the naturally small size of their breasts, or have lost breast volume following a pregnancy or weight reduction. In some cases, breast augmentation may also be performed as a reconstructive surgery or as a way to correct the appearance of asymmetrical breasts.

Breast lift is recommended in cases where the breast size is fairly normal, but the breasts are sagging heavily due to excess skin and weak underlying muscles. This procedure can raise the position of breasts to a more youthful level, and make them tighter and firmer. In some cases, breast lift procedure may be combined with breast implant surgery for more comprehensive results. Dr. Esmailian will recommend the most appropriate treatment approach to his patients in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, CA, and nearby areas.

Breast reduction procedure may be recommended in cases where the patient is bothered by oversized breasts due to aesthetic or medical reasons. The procedure involves surgical removal of excess breast tissue and reduction of loose skin to make the breasts more proportionately sized. Outstanding candidates for any breast surgery are patients with a positive outlook, clear aesthetic goals, and realistic expectations. Patients should be non-smokers or committed to giving up smoking several weeks before and after the surgery.

Preparation for Breast Surgery

The patient may be required to undergo certain medical tests, including mammograms, depending on their individual condition. The surgeon will advise the patient to stop smoking as well as aspirin and health supplements several weeks before the surgery. If the patient has been taking some kind of medications or herbal treatments, the surgeon may consult with the prescribing physician to stop these medications for a few days or weeks.

Recovery and Results

Following the breast surgery procedure, the breasts are likely to remain covered in bandages for a day or two. The surgeon may place a drain beneath the skin to collect excess fluid or blood. Most patients will experience mild pain and soreness in the breasts for the few days. The surgeon can prescribe pain relieving medications for a few days to keep the patient comfortable.

Depending on the extent of surgery performed, a majority of patients are able to go back to work within a week to 10 days. Heavy lifting and strenuous exercises should be avoided for at least four to six weeks after surgery. The results with most breast surgery procedures are long lasting and natural looking.
