Estimated Breast Augmentation Revision Base Fee Schedule

Every plastic surgeon has a few patients who will require breast implant revision surgery or have complications requiring additional medical care and/or surgery. As you have been or will be told, no surgeon can guarantee a result or promise zero complications. In cosmetic procedures there are certain problems that will happen statistically, no matter how good the care, or how careful the doctor and team. Examples of problems that may be encountered are bleeding, infection, capsular contracture or an unfavorable scar after a surgical procedure. It may be necessary to return to surgery, either on an emergency basis (as in the case with bleeding) or an elective basis (as in the case of scarring), perform additional diagnostic testing/procedures, admit the patient to the hospital and/or consult physicians from other specialties.

The most frustrating part of Dr. Feldman's practice is when patients' fail to recognize the importance of following post-operative care instructions. Many of the complications encountered after breast augmentation are preventable, and directly attributable to not following activity restrictions, supportive bra use and/or massage after surgery. Compliance with our instructions, and restrictions, plays as large a role, or even larger, in your result as the surgery itself. We collectively call this "pride of ownership." Unfortuantely, actions have consequences, and many times overuse will lead to bleeding, bruising, hematoma, contracture, implant malposition or symmastia. Most of Dr. Feldman's patients over do it, most get away with it, but about 5% don't, meaning 5 out of every 100 surgeries require another operation in the first 6 months that could have been avoided by following instructions.

Fixing suboptimal results is hard and will ultimately end up costing more money, for a less pleasing result. Breasts are "cousins not sisters or twins," and therefore the best possible outcome of primary augmentation is first cousins. Each additional surgery drops one level lower, meaning the best possible outcome of a revision surgery is second cousins, third surgery, third cousins, and by the 4th of 5th surgery, neighbors or strangers. This is why following our specific instructions to reduce the chance of needing more surgery is so important.  

It is our policy, as a predetermined courtesy to our patients, not to charge a surgeon’s fee for complications or revisional surgery within 6 months from the original surgery date. We do, however, expect the patient to pay whatever other expenses, including, but not limited to, hospital, medication/pharmacy, consulting physician, anesthesia, laboratory, implant and radiology fees that arise as a result of treatment of a complication. If the breast augmentation revisional surgery occurs in our office facility within 6 months, the patient is responsible for the expense of the facility, anesthesia and implant, if applicable, outlined below.

After 6 months, this revision fee schedule is NOT applicable. Additionally, there is a $250 fee for in-office evaluation (starting 6 months after surgery) at which a new quote may be provided, for any requested procedures.

Should any complication occur due to external factors, as determined solely by the surgeon/staff, including, but not limited to trauma, overuse, non-compliance with post-operative instructions/restrictions, failure to massage or wear supportive bras, missing or rescheduling follow-up appointments, pregnancy, weight loss/gain, smoking, illicit drug use, or new tattoos/piercings during healing, the below estimated base fee schedule is not applicable, and a new quote may be provided if revision surgery is offered. Revision surgery will not be offered, at any price, to patient's who demonstrate continued non-compliance.

We hope that no complication arises and no revisional surgery is necessary in your case. However, no plastic surgeon can guarantee this to their patients. It is important for the patient undergoing an elective surgical procedure to understand this financial/revision policy and fee schedule.

Exploration/Evacuation of Hematoma (approximately 1% risk) starting at $1500 per side

Capsular Contracture (approximately 4% risk) starting at $3000 per side

"I'm unable to think of a better word to describe the result of my breast augmentation result than "perfect". I'm literally IN LOVE with the outcome. I have named my left breast Sonya and my right breast Sally because, now, they actually look like beautiful sisters instead of EXTREMELY distant cousins...

The entire staff was incredibly amazing, knowledgeable, patient, and polite. Each staff member took EXTRA care to make sure I was comfortable and well taken care of. Everyone went ABOVE and BEYOND by always politely greeting me upon my entrance into the waiting area and the patient room, providing adequate amount of pain medicine - specifically the generic brand to cut cost, slightly numbing my hand with topical wipe to prevent sharp pain upon I V placement, answering any and all questions, and making specially arrangements to accommodate schedule changes.  

Upon entry to the surgical room, the nurses and the anesthesiologist provided EXCELLENT bedside manner with added humor, comfort, and positive personalities. The anesthesiologist even added medicine to my I V to help with my skin condition. ALSO, someone even made sure the pillow my feet were placed on was warm. OMG! AHHHHHHH-MAZING! 

Moreover, my breast are healing wonderfully. The office reverberates a youthful and inviting vibe and the staff seems like a tight-knit family that works well together. I returned Dr. Feldman's missed call last week just to say thank you; to him and all of his perfectly picked staff. Due to being the TOP breast surgeon in Houston, I understand he is busy so I figured I'd shoot a quick e-mail. 

Thank you EVERYONE for making my breast augmentation TOTALLY AWESOME in all aspects."

“I absolutely love Bancroft Feldman surgery. I have received so many compliments from people, and they are always amazed at Dr. Feldman’s work. I’ve had several people ask me for his contact information so that they can schedule a consultation. Dr. Feldman asked me what my goals were and reassured me that he would do everything possible to meet my goals. Courtney and Jeannette were also very helpful throughout the process. They provided great support, were always smiling and friendly, and responded to emails in a very timely manner. Throughout my surgery, I felt like everyone involved truly cared about me.

The price for breast augmentation was very reasonable, and I had read good reviews online. Furthermore, Dr. Feldman’s background provided me with confidence that he knew what he was doing, and the atmosphere of the office during my consultation was very warm and friendly. The staff is absolutely amazing . I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Feldman and the staff at Bancroft Feldman Surgery!”

"I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the whole augmentation process.  I really thought I would feel awkward, but at no time during my experience did I.  Everybody at the office is awesome. I'm actually sad that's it's over. I guess what I really want to say is Thank You...to everybody, especially Dr. Feldman and Jeannette, for giving me a new sense of confidence.  I cannot believe the difference in how I feel about myself.  They look amazing!!"
