When considering cost as it relates to silicone versus saline breast implants, a key component to think about is the look and feel you are trying to achieve. Are you looking to go with a more natural look and feel, or would you prefer a substance that is a bit firmer but has a similar composition to the fluid that makes up most of the human body?
Saline-filled breast implants are more affordable, as they are filled with a saltwater solution similar to the fluid that makes up most of the human body, but they are slightly firmer to the touch. These are filled by the surgeon performing the breast augmentation procedure.
Silicone gel breast implants are more expensive, as they are filled with a cohesive gel that holds together uniformly while retaining the natural give that resembles breast tissue. These are prepared by the manufacturer and tested for quality to ensure uniform fill volumes.
For patients who are not able to pay for cosmetic procedures up front, there are patient financing options available. Financing offers you the option to cut down the initial cost of surgery by allowing you to make payments that fit your budget.
Some programs have low interest rates that allow you to pay off the total amount more quickly. Some surgeons may offer financing options through affiliate services within their practice, and others may encourage you to look at other financing providers to find the one that’s right for you.
Speak with potential surgeons directly regarding the total cost of the breast augmentation procedure and the financing options available to you.
Another component to consider is your breast implant warranty. Warranties add value to your breast augmentation package by protecting you from additional costs down the road. Some warranties are free with the purchase of implants. All MENTOR® Breast Implants come with a Lifetime Product Replacement Policy free of charge.
