What to Consider When Getting a Boob Job?
The decision to get a boob job – or breast augmentation – is a big one. It involves a lot of thought, research, and planning for before, during, and after the surgery. Being fully informed about the costs associated with getting a boob job is a crucial step in the process.
Surgical fees for boob jobs can vary depending on the type of surgery and the surgeon. These fees normally cover:
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Anesthesia fees
- Surgeon’s fees
Typically, the fees for the above-mentioned items will come out to a range between $8,000 and $16,000. If you choose to include other procedures – such as a breast lift – in the same surgery, the costs could be higher.
Additionally, you may need to pay a fee to the doctor’s office to cover preoperative costs, such as consultations. If you’re paying for your boob job out of pocket, you may be able to negotiate the total cost, which could reduce it even further.
Beyond the expense of the surgery itself, you may need to factor in some added expenses for your breast augmentation. These may include:
- Prescription medications – you may need to buy medication to help reduce swelling and pain post-surgery
- Clothing – it’s important to wear properly-fitted, supportive clothing, like bras and loose clothing, after your surgery. If you don’t, you risk having unevenness in the augmentation position and/or scarring
- Follow-up visits – you’ll likely need to pay for any follow-up visits to check on your results
Before making a final decision about getting a boob job, make sure to add in all possible expenses and factor in any other costs that might apply. Calculate the total amount, and compare the cost with the long-term rewards and benefits you get from getting a boob job.
