    A great question!  Firstly its best to wait until your breasts have stopped growing or changing in size or shape before undergoing breast augmentation. Fees for breast augmentation vary depending on the qualifications, skills and experience of your plastic surgeon.  Having said that, its best to avoid surgeons who charge exorbitantly as that does not mean you are engaging a better surgeon and don’t be tempted to get a cheap job done .Prices can be very cheap for cosmetic doctors  who lack the extensive qualifications and skills of plastic surgeons and fees can also be very expensive as some surgeons pass on the high costs of social media and marketing campaigns onto their patients.  I always tell prospective patients that shopping around based on price usually leads to very disappointing results.
