Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as a "boob job" by patients, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to enhance your breasts. Breast augmentation costs can widely vary. The average fee referenced above is only part of the total cost — it does not include the type of breast implants used, anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses. A surgeon's fee for breast augmentation will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used and the geographic office location. When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for breast augmentation, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery. Most health insurance plans will not cover cosmetic breast augmentation costs, related complications or another surgery to revise the appearance of your breasts.
