Cost conscious patients who are considering breast augmentation might wonder whether saline implants or silicone implants are more cost effective. There are certain types of silicone implants thar are significantly more expensive than saline implants. In general, the cost of a breast augmentation using saline implants will be comparable to a procedure using silicone implants. The range for the total cost of saline implants including surgeon's fees, hospital fees and anesthesia is approximately $3,000 to $6,000, with some surgeries costing significantly more or significantly less than this amount.
