There are many factors that go into the cost of breast augmentation. The procedure used and the type of implant that you choose to get will determine the cost of your breast augmentation surgery with your Chicago surgeon.
During your first consultation with your breast surgeon, they will most likely go over the differences between saline and silicone implants. It is very important to go over everything thoroughly so that you can be happy with the decision you make. As mentioned many times throughout our website, surgeries can be expensive, so you need to make sure you are happy with what you choose.
Saline-filled implants are made out of sterile start water, also referred to as saline. Silicone (which was often used in the 80s) are plastic gel inserts. It is important to know that silicone was actually taken off of the market in 1992 because the FDA found that it was hazardous to one’s health. Fast forward 14 years later, silicone breasts can be obtained again, and are preferred because they give more of a natural feeling.
