What is the cost of Silicone breast implant removal?

Q:

I am 39 years old and I got silicone breast implants 2 years ago. I am not happy with them and I haven't been happy since I got them. I feel they are too far apart and I keep getting a burning sensation in my left breast. I went from a small B to a C (350 cc). My Dr. hasn't been helpful about wanting them removed. He keeps telling me I won't be happy with the way my breasts look once the implants are removed. I would like them removed and curious about the cost to have them removed?

A:

Delhi,

 Costs for removal of breast implants vary around the country. Consider a consult with a member of the ASAPS in your area for a definitive price. 

Best,

A:

Removing implants vary from surgeon to surgeon but if you're willing to do this in the office under local with the incision of my choice, I offer this for less than $600, all inclusive.  Gel implants, if ruptured, are a bigger problem and it would be recommended that they be done in the operating room.  Your surgeon is trying to help you appreciate what life would be like with removal but if you are certain, I hope your surgeon can help you there.
