The cost of a boob job, also known as breast augmentation, can vary significantly depending on several factors. These factors include the type of implants chosen, the complexity of the procedure, and the location of the surgeon. In this blog post, we will examine the various elements that can influence the price of a boob job and provide some guidance on how to find the best price for your desired procedure.
Types of Breast Implant
There are two main types of breast implants: saline and silicone. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water and tend to be less expensive than silicone implants. However, they may not look as natural as silicone implants and may be more prone to rippling. Silicone implants are made of a silicone gel and are generally more expensive but tend to look and feel more natural than saline implants.
Complexity of the Surgery
The complexity of the procedure can also affect the cost of a boob job. Factors that can increase the complexity of the procedure include the need for a breast lift, the size and shape of the implants, and the amount of pre-existing breast tissue. A breast lift is often performed in conjunction with a boob job to lift and firm the breasts, which can add to the overall cost. The size and shape of the implants can also impact the price, as larger implants may require more work and may be more expensive.
The location of the surgeon can also be a factor in the cost of a boob job. Generally, the cost of a boob job is higher in urban areas than in rural areas. Additionally, the cost of living in a particular area can impact the price of a boob job. For example, a boob job in London will cost significantly more than a procedure in Scotland. In London, many clinics charge £7,000-8,000 for a boob job.
Making your decision
It’s important to get quotes from multiple surgeons and to research the reputation and qualifications of the surgeon you are considering before deciding on a boob job. Being certified in cosmetic breast surgery by the Royal College of Surgeons is an excellent way to ensure that your surgeon is well-qualified. Ms Lucy Khan and Mr Chris Cartlidge are certified in cosmetic breast surgery.
There are also financing options available for those who cannot afford to pay for a boob job upfront. Many surgeons offer financing plans or will work with financing companies to help patients pay for their procedures. It’s important to carefully consider the terms and make sure you understand all of the costs involved.
Mr Cartlidge and Ms Khan charge £150 for a consultation. There is no further charge for any repeat consultations prior to deciding about surgery. The cost of a breast augmentation is around £5,000 depending upon the complexity of the procedure. There is no additional charge for specific types of implants (e.g. teardrop, smooth or soft-touch). The cost of the procedure includes all follow-up appointments and care.
In summary, the cost of a boob job can vary significantly depending on the type of implants chosen, the complexity of the procedure, and the location of the surgeon. It’s important to shop around and do your research to find the best price for your desired procedure. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and make sure you understand all of the costs involved before making a decision.
