How Is Cost Determined at Our Minneapolis, MN, Office?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the national average price of breast augmentation surgery is $4,516. However, national averages don't speak to the individual patient.

At our Minneapolis, MN, plastic surgery practice, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gregory T. Mesna, will discuss the factors that will determine the cost of your treatment, and the pricing of various options. Knowing the factors that affect the cost of your surgery can help you make an informed decision based on your budget and what methods are right for you to achieve the look you desire.

Additional Procedures
Can Add to Overall Costs

Some patients choose to undergo multiple cosmetic procedures while under anesthesia. For example, many women experiencing sagging choose to pair a breast lift with implants to create a fuller, perkier appearance.

Combining a breast lift or other cosmetic surgery with your breast augmentation can add to the overall cost of your treatment, but it may help achieve the results you desire. 

Surgical Techniques & Placement Can Affect Cost

Similar to implant type, how the breast implants are inserted can affect the total cost of your breast augmentation. We offer various incision techniques and placement methods, each with
unique advantages and cost points.

Inframammary Incision

During the inframammary incision technique, Dr. Mesna creates an incision in the fold of the breast where it meets the skin covering the ribs. Using this incision, Dr. Mesna has direct access to the tissues within the breast, creating a more precise pocket for implant placement. Both saline and silicone implants can be inserted using this method.

Periareolar Incision

Using the periareolar incision technique, Dr. Mesna creates an opening on the edge of the areola. This incision results in some scarring, mostly masked by the natural coloration around the nipple, and is suitable for placing both types of implants.

Transaxillary Incision

The transaxillary incision method produces the least visible scarring of the three incision techniques. Using this method, Dr. Mesna inserts collapsed saline implants through incisions placed within a patient’s armpits. After insertion, the implants are moved to the breasts. Once they are properly in place, Dr. Mesna will inflate the implants to an appropriate size using saline.

Placement Methods

In addition to choosing an incision technique, patients will need to select either submuscular or subglandular implant placement. Submuscular placement refers to the placement of implants beneath the muscle of the breast, and subglandular placement refers to implant placement above the muscle but below the fat of the natural breast.

Does Insurance Cover 
Breast Augmentation?


Breast augmentation surgery is not covered by insurance because it's a cosmetic procedure. However, we accept monthly financing plans through Med Loan Finance and Prosper Healthcare Lending to help you budget the cost of treatment.
