How much does a breast enlargement cost on average?
More and more women who are insecure about their breast size are considering a breast enlargement, also called a breast augmentation. The price of such a surgery differs hugely. The cost of a breast enlargement depends on the quality of the implants, the warranty, the aftercare and where you choose to have the surgery. In general we can say that the price of a good breast enlargement in the UK is between 3,500 and 5,000 pounds. Besides this price you also have to keep in mind the costs of consultations or other follow-up care that could be needed after the surgery.
Are the costs of breast enlargement covered by the insurance?
The costs of breast enlargement are usually not covered by your health insurance. Only in rare cases exceptions can be made. If you want to know whether you might fall under one of these rare cases, we advise you to contact your health insurance first before meeting with a plastic surgeon.
Are there other ways to finance the costs of breast augmentation?
If you are unable to pay the full price of breast enlargement in one go, then there are also clinics that allow several payments. For instance, you would pay a sum of 250 euros every month for a certain period of time until all the costs are covered.
What kind of breast implants are there?
Breast implants are artificial implants. In the United Kingdom, there are two types of breast implants that are used the most:
- silicone gel implants – available as a liquid, a gel, or in a solid form
- saline implants (sterile salt water)
Each type has its advantages and disadvantages, although most people choose to use silicone implants. Breast implants normally have a durability of 10-15 years. After this period they may need to be replaced.
