How Much Does a Breast Augmentation Cost in Australia?

16th February 2018 by Dr. Kim Taylor
Breast Augmentation Cost

 

With more options than ever before, it’s important to understand what goes into the price of a breast augmentation (and what doesn’t). For anyone who’s looked up the cost of a procedure, finding an exact figure can be difficult. Prices often range anywhere from $5,000 to upwards of $20,000.

Such extreme price differences are mainly due to the discrepancy between doctor qualification, choice of materials and pre- and post-operative care. At Re., an all-inclusive surgery package costs between $11,990 and $12,990, depending on the implant type chosen.

Be advised – not all surgeons performing breast augmentations are specialist plastic surgeons (FRACS). This is why you should get to know your doctor first. Re.’s breast augmentation experts, Dr Richard Bloom and Dr Kim Taylor are qualified specialist plastic surgeons who are members of ASPS/ASAPS and operate in accredited hospitals.

When comparing options, many don’t consider the additional costs that may not be included in the price as advertised. Hospital stays, garments, follow-up appointments, post-operative care and laser scar management treatments following surgery can put the cost substantially higher than the initial price. Many opt to go overseas for surgery, as they see it as a cheaper alternative. However, there are often hidden costs which can be both financial or health-related, without any care beyond surgery day.

At Re., the cost of breast augmentation surgery covers every necessary aspect, from pre-operative appointments to ongoing follow-ups. As part of our commitment to patient satisfaction and achieving the best outcomes, the exclusive Re.Care Surgery Program includes:
