What is breast augmentation surgery?

Breast augmentation surgery, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to increase the size of the breasts. During this procedure, the surgeon puts breast implants under the breast tissues to make them look enhanced and enlarged.

This plastic surgery is performed to reconstruct the size and shape of the breasts. It improves the aesthetic appearance, makes the breasts look symmetrical, and fulfills the desired expectation of a patient to achieve a bigger breasts size.

  • You want a bigger breast cup size

The plastic surgeon performs a thorough diagnosis before the breast augmentation procedure. The diagnosis may include a physical examination, where the surgeon will analyze the current shape and size of the breasts. During the evaluation, the plastic surgeon will ask about your medical history and current medications or supplements if you are taking any. The surgeon will also try to determine your expectations from the breast augmentation procedure to give you a better idea about the procedure.

When to consult a Plastic Surgeon?

If you want to augment the size of your breasts, you can consult a plastic surgeon at your convenience. This is an elective procedure which means there is no designated time for undergoing the procedure. You can discuss your expectations with the surgeon and plan the surgery accordingly.

Treatment Cost

The average breast augmentation surgery cost may range between Rs. 1,00,000 to Rs. 1,50,000. However, the cost for breast augmentation surgery would vary based on the several factors, such as:

  • The expertise of the plastic surgeon
  • The diagnostic tests recommended by the surgeon during the procedure
  • The hospitalization expense
  • Selection of the hospital
  • The location of the hospital
  • The type of technique used during the breast augmentation surgery
  • The medications prescribed by your plastic surgeon throughout the treatment

Insurance Coverage

Typically, breast augmentation surgery is not covered under health insurance when it is an elective procedure. If the surgery is performed for aesthetic reasons, the patient cannot use an insurance policy to cover the cost of treatment. However, there is an exception to this rule.

Insurance coverage is available for females who have had mastectomies. In this scenario, the procedure is considered a medical necessity instead of an elective surgery. If the breasts are abnormal due to trauma, disease, infection, tumors, or developmental conditions, the augmentation surgery is likely to be covered by insurance. If the breast implantation is being performed to improve the function of the breasts, the insurance providers may provide full or partial coverage for the breast augmentation surgery cost.

To learn more about the terms and conditions of health insurance, talk to your provider.
