Can I find inexpensive breast implants?

Stuart A. Linder, MD
Plastic Surgery
There are only two Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved breast implants available in the United States. They are produced by Inamed Corporation and Mentor Corporation. There are no inexpensively priced implants available in the United States.

If the price of the operation is at a level that seems too low for a certain geographical area, you must be extra careful and fully aware as to what you are going to receive. Sure, there is a possibility you will get satisfactory results, but there’s a much greater possibility that you won’t. Be careful, and remember the old saying: “If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is.”
