You Get What You Pay for: The True Cost of Discount Breast Implants

When presented with the chance to spend less money, it’s natural to take advantage of the savings. But there’s a difference between shaving a few bucks off your grocery bill and opting for a reduced rate breast augmentation. Lack of skill, low-quality materials and poor sanitary conditions are just a few of the risks that come with cheap cosmetic procedures. Discount breast augmentation surgeries may be done without proper licensing or in shady facilities, risking your health as well as your bank account. In the long run, you could end up spending more money to fix the results.

Breast Augmentation Done Right

A proper breast augmentation begins with a consultation with a skilled cosmetic surgeon. This gives you an opportunity to meet with an experienced surgeon to discuss your goals and better understand the procedure. The surgeon will explore your options with you.

There are several decisions to make regarding breast augmentation surgery. These include:

  • Implant type: Silicone gel or saline, implant shape and size
  • Implant placement: Submuscular (below the chest muscle) or subglandular (below the breast tissue)
  • Incision locations: Periareolar (in the dark skin that surrounds the nipple) and inframammary (under breast fold) are the two most common

On Surgery Day

Breast augmentations are performed either in a hospital or certified surgical facility. Anesthesia and medication will be administered for your comfort and safety. The surgeon will then make the incision, place the implant precisely within the breast pocket, and close up the incision. You’re then taken to a recovery room and return home the same day with instructions.

If you’ve already had a breast augmentation and are unhappy with the results or need to update your look, you may be a candidate for an implant revision procedure. Dr. Koehler can adjust the size of your implants, switch your implants from silicone to saline or vice versa, or improve overall breast shape.
