NYC breast augmentation costs vary depending on exactly what is needed in your particular case. Frequently, breast implants can be combined with a breast lift or other procedure necessary to give you exactly the result you desire.
Breast augmentation is also often combined with other unrelated procedures such asliposuction, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), or facial cosmetic procedures. Sometimes breast augmentation is even performed at the same time as other medically necessary procedures, most commonly gynecological procedures. These different combinations also can significantly affect the cost of breast augmentation.
Factors that Impact Cost
For patients having breast augmentation alone, fees vary widely in the New York City area. Differences in fees will depend on many factors such as the doctor’s credentials and experience, the quality of the facility and its staff, and the experience of the anesthesia provider. Key factors impacting the cost of your surgery may include:
- Surgeon’s skill and training – The most qualified surgeons who have performed extensive surgeries typically charge a higher fee.
- Breast implants – The size, type, profile, and other factors may influence the cost.
- Extent of procedure – The technique Dr. Newman uses to place your implants and the type of anesthesia used may vary based on your body’s own unique needs.
- Where the procedure takes place – On average, breast augmentation costs do tend to be higher in urban areas where the overhead is higher and there is a greater demand.
Dr. Newman is a board-certified and re-certified plastic surgeon. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and is Chief of Plastic Surgery at St. John’s Riverside Hospital in Westchester. He is a member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), and he is a board-member of the Aesthetic Surgery Educational Research Foundation. Dr. Newman was presented with an award from ASAPS for ground-breaking research on 3-Dimensional imaging of the breast and how this technology applies to breast surgery.
Dr. Newman has performed over 4000 cosmetic breast procedures and has one of the largest experiences in the country. He frequently receives referrals of difficult cosmetic breast cases from other plastic surgeons, which is a testament to how Dr. Newman’s skills are trusted professionally. Perhaps the most important “credential” is the fact that, to date, Dr. Newman has performed surgery on family members of 56 doctors and on 29 doctors themselves.
Dr. Newman has performed breast augmentation on three female plastic surgeons. As a surgeon, being the choice of your peers is the highest compliment. Doctors, themselves, know where to best obtain the highest quality and most respected care. The fact that they choose Dr. Newman for their own care or for the care of their own families is the single best “recommendation” you can have when selecting a surgeon for yourself.
Only board-certified anesthesiologists are permitted to administer anesthesia at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center. The services of nurses trained to administer anesthesia are often used at other facilities instead of board-certified anesthesiologists (who are doctors, not nurses).
Dr. Newman will only perform breast augmentation using the services of a board-certified anesthesiologist. If you have questions about this policy you should ask Dr. Newman to address this during your consultation.
NYC Breast Augmentation Cost
For breast augmentation performed by Dr. Newman, the typical fees range from $7500 to $9500. Again, there are situations that will increase or decrease this estimate, but it’s a fair one to use as a guide. These costs are inclusive of everything necessary for surgery including the fees for Dr. Newman, the anesthesiologist, all facility fees and the cost of the implants themselves. The fees also include all visits before and after surgery, surgical photography (before and after photos), and the surgical bra you will need. The only costs not included in these fees are for prescription medicines.
At Advanced Plastic Surgery, you will find that we can help you find a way to pay for your breast augmentation. Cost should never impact the results you desire.
Dr. Newman’s Opinion
“I am aware that I am not the least expensive surgeon performing this procedure, but I am not the most expensive. The financial aspect of surgery is important to most patients and the costs must fit into your budget.
“On the other hand, I don’t believe making a surgical decision based only on finances is advisable. Whether you choose me for your surgery or someone else, keep in mind that the most expensive situation you can ever have is to need surgery more than once. The best chance you have of being satisfied with your result is to do your research before choosing a surgeon.”
