Moolah for boobies, how much is too much?

Hi, I am 37, mother of two young kids and wife of a great man. I found a doctor and practice here in Raleigh, North Carolina, I feel comfortable with, except for the price. They are charging about $9000. 

What is too inexpensive to pay for ba? What is the common range or what did you pay, in the states, for your ba??

Thank you, ladies! I don't want to be in debt forever or have to wait forever to save up for my boobies. :) While I also don't want a bad ba job.

      Lisa Anlsey hi there! Had to chime in because Im a fellow Michigander and just had my BA done in Battle Creek by Dr Elluru in Dec. He was awesome!! I had a full TT and BA and Lipo (mommy makeover) and it was 12k. Not sure how much just the BA would have been.

      B. Kind I'm going with Andrew Lofman. I was really torn between him and Dr. Ali. They were complete opposites. Lofman was SUPER informative about the implant itself and placement. Ali was really in depth about the surgery itself. For me it came down to who I felt more comfortable with and Lofman was it.

      Kayla Marie I was checking Dr. Lofman out as well early in my research. I've already seen Dr. Yonick (Midland), and Dr. Sampson. Dr. Yonick is a great guy but not a lot of experience and pictures, and super expensive for BA only (over 10k). Dr. Sampson I did not like at all. He was rude and short, basically admitting hes a boob factory and nothing more. Not to mention there was a botched patient in the waiting room showing us his work (for her it was bad!!). I see Dr. DeNick by Ann Arbor in two weeks but hoping I dont need to see more.... lol.

      B. Kind right. My first couple consultations were super exciting, but then it got repetitive. Dr Michael Gray was one I absolutely did not want to see at all because I鈥檝e heard so many horror stories, but I know quite a few girls that wear by him. Such a waste of time for the consultation lol. He was everything I imagined him being (which is not good at all) 

      honestly, I will say lofman was one of the less personable doctors I seen. He was very much all business. Which is fine with me. He also has kind of a sarcastic humor which I feel would turn people off but I鈥檓 into it. 

       

      I hope you find the right doctor for you! I have surgery coming up in about a month (September 12th) THE WAIT IS ALMOST OVER

  • I paid $6315 for surgery, which included 3 PO surgical bras and a cute little tank top :) The drugs were an additional $40 and I used goodrx.com to get really good discounts (more than half off!!). That was in Atlanta at the Swan Center with Doctor Joseph Bauer. Remember some things affect the price slightly like the type of implant (saline was cheaper than silicone) and size I think.

I would definitely go to a few consults but ultimately choose who YOU feel most comfortable with that understands your goals. Definitely not something to price shop on:) Good luck!!

  • Depends on where you're going. If it's Dr. Michael Law then he's way overpriced! We were looking at him for years. We decided to do the consult. He recommended that I get a lift as well. (Which I didn't need) he was going to charge me $13,500 for both BA and lift. Which is RIDICULOUS! My husband and I called him "The Boobie Guru" since his work was so good. However, his cost and arrogance led us somewhere different. I ended up going to Dr. Zannis in New Bern, NC. He is actually one of the top 3 best BA surgeons in the country! Charged me $5,400. You should check him out! His staff is amazing too!

      They鈥檙e doing pretty good. I have nipplr sensitivity that didn鈥檛 kick in until almost a week, and my skin is very sensitive too from midboobs down. I get deep aching pains now and then-feels like a very very bad bruise so that鈥檚 definitely not fun at all. I鈥檓 going to take pics tomorrow since that marks my 2 weeks since day of surgery. But I think they look pretty good. Still very round - but I didn鈥檛 have much boobs at all.

  • I will say, you don't want to opt for the cheapest surgeon. I would totally pay a premium for excellent results and a wonderful experience. I went the cheaper route the first time and ended up wanting a revision a few years later. I went to Davis and Pyle and would recommend them to anyone. I also moved from Nashville to Raleigh to work there because I so believe in what they're doing. 馃檪
