As thousands of women each year undergo some form of breast enhancement surgery, it has become one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery in the UK. When deciding which provider to choose, it’s recommended that patients consider not only the cost of the procedure, which can vary by implant type and size, but also the qualifications of the surgeon. Sthetix surgeons are members of the British Association of Plastic Reconstruction and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS), a specialist registry for plastic surgery.
According to the National Health Service, the average cost of breast enhancement in the UK is around £3,500 to £8,000. These estimates do not include follow-up care or any follow-up surgery you may need in the future. In general, you will not be able to get breast enhancement on the NHS.
What Goes Into the Cost of Breast Enhancement?
Your individual goals and needs will play a large role in determining your overall cost for breast enhancement surgery. The primary factors included in the cost are:
- Pre- and post-surgical expenses
- Surgeon fees
- Medications and aftercare
- Geographical location of the procedure
Aftercare may involve an overnight hospital stay and any meals, should you opt to stay in our facility for hands-on postoperative care.
Finally, the type and size of implant you choose can also impact the price of your procedure. In general, silicone implants tend to be more expensive than saline implants.
Pre-Surgical & Post-Surgical Expenses
Pre-surgical expenses refer to medical assessments that ensure you are fit and healthy. These medical tests, such as exams or blood work, may be required to determine you are in optimal health.
Post-surgical expenses generally include prescription medications that may be required, compression garments, and any follow-up visits not included in your treatment plan.
Breast Augmentation Consultations Available
Surgeon fees will be the most considerable portion of the cost. You want to choose a skilled and experienced surgeon who regularly performs breast enhancement procedures.
