Spotlight On Breast Reconstruction

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), breast augmentation, generally involving implants, was the most common of the 1.8 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed by plastic surgeons in 2018, followed by liposuction, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, and tummy tucks. Since these are designated as cosmetic surgeries, they are generally not reimbursed by insurers.

Breast implants are most often segregated into those that are saline-filled vs. silicone. Learn about the implications of these two types of implants on cost as we explore the market trends in this spotlight on breast reconstruction.
