Breast augmentation prices generally range between $6000-$15,000. After your consultation, Dr. Espinoza will provide a detailed surgical plan, which includes the exact price for your customized breast augmentation.

What Breast Augmentation
Surgery Can and Can’t Do
What breast augmentation surgery can’t do:
Even the best breast augmentation in New York does not correct breasts that severely sag or droop. A breast lift may be required in conjunction with a breast augmentation for sagging breasts to look fuller and lifted.
A breast lift can often be done simultaneously with your augmentation, but it does require a separate operation in some cases. Dr. Espinoza can help determine if a breast lift is necessary and if the two procedures can be combined.
What breast augmentation can do:
- VIncrease fullness and projection of your breasts
- VImprove the balance of breast and hip contours
- VEnhance your self-image and self-confidence
- VBe used for breast reconstruction after mastectomy or injury
How Is Breast Augmentation Performed
The exact steps for inserting the implant will vary based on your anatomy and the type of implant you choose. The incision can be placed at the breast crease or around the areola. In both locations, your scar will be well-concealed.
Once the surgery is complete, gauze bandages or other dressings may be applied over the incisions. You will also be given a special sports bra to wear during the healing process that closes in the front.
Types of Breast Implants
There are two types of breast implants commonly used today, saline and silicone. Both are safe and effective choices and come in several shapes, sizes, and textures. Dr. Espinoza will walk you through your implant options and make a recommendation based on your preferences and goals.
Saline breast implants provide a uniform shape, firmness, and feel and are FDA-approved for augmentation in women aged 18 or older.
If you choose silicone breast implants for surgery in Manhattan, you may need to visit your plastic surgeon regularly to make sure the implants are functioning properly. An ultrasound or MRI screening can assess the condition of breast implants. Silicone breast implants are FDA-approved for augmentation in women aged 22 or older.
Breast Augmentation Recovery
You will be given specific post-operative instructions for your recovery and a follow-up appointment with Dr. Espinoza. You may also receive medications or a prescription, but many plastic surgeons prescribe postoperative medications in advance. Your prescribed medications may include pain pills and an antibiotic to prevent infection.
Will there be scars?
Incision placement depends on the size and type of implants chosen, your physical contours, and other factors. Incisions are made very precisely by Dr. Espinoza to ensure that the scars are as minimal as possible.
Scars will be in the following possible areas:

- VIn the natural folds of the skin in the belly button or armpits
- VAround the areola
