Breast Augmentation Cost

By: Dr. Michael Pasquale

The cost of breast augmentation surgery in Honolulu Hawaii, and also at our clinic, ranges from $9,000.00 – $12,000.00. The average cost of breast augmentation in Hawaii is difficult to determine but it likely falls around the $10,000.00 area. It of course depends on what type of implants are used (saline, silicone, textured, high profile etc.) and the particular type of surgery such as replacing old breast implants with a different size versus performing a first time breast augmentation. There are times where we might run breast augmentation specials for as low as $9,000.00, depending on the time of year and certain surgical constraints or limitations. An average, healthy patient with no medical or anatomical concerns can expect to pay around $11,000.00 during normal or peak season or as low as $9,000.00 during a downtime or off season.

While there are a lot of factors and variables that affect the price of breast augmentation, we have attempted to breakdown the cost of breast augmentation as best we can below. There is no possible way to accurately pin down the cost of breast augmentation or any plastic surgery procedure without a consultation between the surgeon and patient to determine the answers to all the variables.

Why is Breast Augmentation so Expensive? Is it worth it?

When you consider the expense realize the breast size of a woman isn’t just a number in her vital statistics or something to go by when buying the correct bra, but in fact it has far reaching effects in a woman’s life. It effects her clothing options, the way she appears and most importantly how she sees herself as an attractive individual. When girls mature they wait for their breasts to grow into a size and shape of their desire, unfortunately sometimes nature seems to have different plans. Breast augmentation is the solution that women across the world have been looking for decades. Essentially breast augmentation is the increase in breast size and shape with the use of breast implants. These breast implants are inserted in the breast region to get the desired size and shape. Advances in plastic surgery have made it possible for women to choose which shape and size they want to be and this gives them a well proportioned and attractive look and does wonders for their confidence and self esteem. Honolulu, Hawaii offers these services by some of the best plastic and cosmetic surgeons in the world.

So unlike other ways to increase the appearance of the breasts from padded and push-up bras to stuffing them with tissue, breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that aims at providing women with an increase in breast size that looks natural and is safe.
