Understand the Cost and Procedure of Breast Implants with Dr Salil Patil

If you wish to go for a breast implant, it is necessary to plan and budget accordingly for the cost..


According to Dr. Salil Patil, the cost of an implant can range from 1-1.5 Lakhs, depending on the type of implant selected. Whether you choose a shaped implant or a round implant will determine the final cost, which is estimated to be around this amount.


At Chrysalis the breast implant surgery is a same-day procedure, which means that you can come in the morning, have the surgery performed, and be able to go home in the evening. After about seven days, there will be a follow-up appointment to check on your progress and to determine what type of pressure garment or sports bra you should wear.

Back to work

After undergoing breast implant surgery, you can resume your normal activities the next day. This minimizes any disruption to your daily life and productivity.

Fat Grafting

With regards to fat grafting, Dr. Salil Patil explains that the procedure involves removing fat via liposuction and then injecting it into the chest. This can typically be done as a same-day procedure, although some patients may require an overnight stay for added comfort.


The cost for fat grafting is approximately between 1.2 to 1.7 lakhs. If a larger size is desired, multiple surgeries may be required, which would incur the same cost for each procedure.


Dr. Salil Patil mentions that to perform the surgery, a few incisions are made on the body. If he were to discuss implant incisions, he notes that the most common incision location is on the breast, measuring around 5-6 cm in size. This allows the surgeon to insert the desired size and shape of implant. However, in recent years, particularly with trans clients from overseas, there has been a preference for incisions to be hidden, rather than on the breast. As a result, incisions are also commonly made in the nipple area or the armpit area.


Dr. Salil Patil explains that for a breast implant surgery, there are typically two common incision sites: the under breast and the nipple area. However, there is also the option of using the axilla, or armpit, as the incision site. This method is preferred by some clients as the incision is hidden within the normal folds of the skin and not visible to others. For instance, Dr. Salil recounts a client from the Philippines who specifically requested a surgery with hidden incisions and was pleased with the results after the breast implant surgery was performed using the axilla method.

Common methods

The three most common incision sites for breast implants are the inframammary, peri-aerolar, and axillary (or armpit) sites. These incision sites are typically used for silicone implants and not saline implants. However, some saline implants can be rolled into a small tube and inserted using endoscopic surgery. This involves using an endoscope to create a pocket in the chest and inserting the implant from the belly. Although this method is not very common, it is still an option for some patients.
