How Much Are Breast Implants? (UK and Abroad)

Breast implants are one of the most popular kinds of cosmetic surgery in the country. For the purpose of this post, we are going to focus on enlargements for cosmetic purposes.

Unless you are getting breast enlargements following a mastectomy and not for aesthetic reasons, to help with self-esteem issues, you will not normally be able to have health insurance cover it.

Therefore, it can cost a significant amount of money. So, how much are breast implants?

That is what we are going to discuss in the following post, to help you weigh up whether it is right for you or not.

How much does a breast enlargement cost in the UK?

The cost of breast surgery, to give you either silicone breast implants or saline implants, in the UK ranges from around £4,3000 to £6,000.

At Linia Skin Clinic, our prices are competitively affordable, starting at £4,550.

There is a number of different factors that have an impact on the price of breast augmentation surgery, including the type of implants and the size of implants you want.

Are breast implants worth the money?

This is a very good question and one that you should give much consideration to before deciding whether to have breast implants and breast enlargement surgery.

In general, most people who have had breast implants have been satisfied with the results and have no regrets.

However, it’s the changes to your body you need to think about, as well as the fact that with surgery of any kind, there is always some level of risk and the chance of complications.

At Linia Skin Clinic, because our team of plastic surgeons are highly trained, fully qualified and have many years of experience, complications and risks are kept to a minimum.

Still, it’s worth familiarising yourself with things like saline implant ruptures, capsular contractures and other risks.

So, really, you need to weigh up whether the expense of cosmetic surgery like breast implant surgery in exchange for improving your figure, self-esteem, and self-confidence is worth it or not.

How much are monthly payments for breast enlargement surgery?

It depends on the full price of your breast implants and breast enlargement procedure, but as they constitute a significant investment, sometimes it is possible to pay for the treatment in more manageable monthly payments.

Contact us to see what options we have available currently.

Although you may have to pay some interest some prefer to have surgical procedures like a boob job and make smaller, more manageable payments.

Low interest or zero interest credit cards are also a payment method people use to pay for surgery and spread out their payments.

How much does breast implant surgery cost abroad?

If you are determined to have breast implants but want to avoid paying the British prices for breast augmentation surgery, you may have heard how much cheaper it is abroad.

When you consider that you can have a breast augmentation somewhere like Turkey for between 2,000 and 5,000 euros, it is clear why there is an allure to go abroad.

What’s more, many clinics will include in the price accommodation at a local, supposedly high-quality hotel, which is important as you will need to stay in the country for a few days at least for aftercare and additional support if there are any problems or complications.

Meaning, you can make the most of the time you are abroad by killing two birds with one stone – getting your breast implants and having a mini-break.

That all sounds good until you realise that some places, but not all, in continental Europe and neighbouring countries may not have the same level of certification or the same safety inspections and regulations in place for medical treatments like plastic surgery including breast implants.

Obviously, we are not out to burst your bubble or ruin your plans for cosmetic surgery, but as there are serious risks involved, it is important to consider the above points.

We are not suggesting you are definitely going to have a terrible experience having breast surgery, but as there is a lot of money involved, even when you seem to be saving money.

What we are suggesting is the route you want to take, you need to be cautious; very cautious.

Is it worth it getting breast augmentation abroad?

Following on from the above, you need to think carefully about your decision to get cosmetic surgery abroad.

In this case, breast implant surgery, whether it’s for saline implants or silicone implants, requires a lot of research.

  • How are they going to conduct the initial consultation appointment that you should have as standard practice?

That is the first time you are going to meet with the surgeon, normally face to face.

  • Where they will discuss what you are looking to gain from the breast enlargement operations they offer?

This is when they will offer advice about the breast size and shape you would like and what would work best with your body type.

  • You need to find out whether the surgeon who will be responsible for your boob job is properly qualified and if they are assessed and regulated in any way.

The last thing you want, after all, is to put your body, the sensitive breast skin and breast tissue and the area around the implant location in the hands of someone that has not got the necessary qualifications, certification or experience.

  • It is also a good idea to find out about previous patients who have received a surgical procedure from that particular clinic and whether or not their experience was a positive one.

Your breasts are not something inconspicuous that if something goes wrong and you don’t like the size or shape of your breasts if you have uneven breasts, for example, you can cover it over easily.

What’s more, if you have any complications as a result, or suffer from capsular contracture, ruptured implant or breast implant illness, you may have to spend more money on further surgery, which may mean returning to the clinic and further expenditure on flights and accommodation.

Some clinics would want you to pay another fee to correct their mistake (if indeed it was their mistake.)

Also, how long breast implants last depends on many things, but they don’t last forever. Going abroad to the same surgeon a decade or two later if needed, is difficult at best and at worst, not possible.

Summary and More Information

Ultimately, there are a few things to factor into the cost of breast implants including the location of your surgeon, their experience and level of notoriety as well as the end result you’re hoping to achieve.

These variables mean that breast implants can cost you from as little as under 2000 Euros all the way to £6,000 plus.
