There are a number of implant choices available to women considering breast enlargement surgery and the style and type of implant used will determine the cost of the breast implant itself.
Implants placed above the pectoral muscle are generally cheaper than implants placed below, due to the complexity of the surgery. However your surgeon will recommend which procedure type he recommends based on your specific requirements and his area of specialism.
You may want to ensure you have the least amount of scarring possible and opt for the J-Frame technique, where your breast implant surgeon uses smaller incisions. This may well cost more.
As boob jobs have increased in popularity their prices have dropped as competition increased. It is now cheaper than ever to undergo breast augmentation surgery and many clinics offering discounts and deals for patients.
However, not all clinics include every aspect of the surgery in their quote so it is important to review the quotes you receive thoroughly before committing to surgery. There may be hidden costs or additional charges and it is important to compare your breast augmentation quotes on a like for like basis.
The surgeon and clinic location are two of the most important things to be satisfied with before you undergo your procedure. Not only are these the things that will most affect your comfort, they will also most affect the cost of breast enlargement. A certified, specialised surgeon with many years' experience will be highly regarded within the cosmetic industry and may charge more. The clinic's location may also affect the price, for example London clinics may charge more than surgeries elsewhere in the UK.
Aftercare is an essential part of your package, but it may or may not be included in the price of your boob job, so it is important to find out as soon as possible. The aftercare package includes regular post-op check-ups to ensure the breasts are recovering well and there are not any complications. Cost wise, the aftercare package is significant as if complications do arise and you don't have aftercare included, the price of the boob job will rise substantially.
It is strongly recommended you discuss all the options of your breast augmentation with a consultant prior to surgery. We advise you think about the areas of the procedure that are most important to you before selecting the clinic you have surgery with and don't just think about the price alone.

It can be considerably cheaper to combine your breast enlargement surgery with a holiday. For example the cost of a breast augmentation in Cuba can cost about £750 and about £2,300 in Prague for the same procedure. However, while boob job prices are lower in some foreign countries, patients should factor in the additional costs involved, such as flights and accommodation. It is also important to consider the risk of complications occurring whilst abroad so substantial travel and medical insurance is strongly advised.
