WHAT WILL IT COST?
The cost of revision breast surgery varies. Many women are unaware that various warranties are available to help defray the costs of replacing deflated saline breast implants, depending on the manufacturer and age of the implants. Please be sure to bring any implant records to your consultation with Dr. Okoro, so that we can investigate your warranty coverage. If your implant is out of warranty, we offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask. The typical cost to replace breast implant includes the following:

Most health insurance plans will not cover cosmetic breast implant surgery and related complications. However, if your surgery is related to breast cancer, most insurance will cover the cost of revision. Some carriers even exclude breast diseases in patients who have breast implants.
