This article should help you get some answers.
Let look at Australia first to determine Breast implant costs. When looking at breast implant cost for Australian surgeons it is never a full inclusive cost as it is broken down into individual cost these may or may not include GST when quoted (beware).
In Australia to be legal, statements about pricing have to be so specific that no practitioner or hospital would or could list them on a website. There are too many variables. The Medical Board of Australia’s Guidelines for advertising of regulated health services control the way of pricing their services.
Here is a summary – (all figures include GST):
- Surgeon’s fees – Approximately $4000- $6500 AUD (basic round implant)
- Anesthetist’s fees – Approximately $1000 AUD
- Hospital costs – Approximately $1500 AUD
- Cost of implants – Approximately $1200 AUD
- Ongoing check-up costs – Approximately $300 AUD per visit
Grand Total – Around $8,000 – $11,000 AUD
Despite its popularity, you may be surprised to discover that in Australia there is no regulatory body for cosmetic surgery, and for consumers, it can be confusing to know who is qualified to do what when it comes to popular aesthetic procedures. In Thailand, this is not the case. The surgeons we use are all qualified and highly experienced Plastic, not Cosmetic surgeons.
