Breast lift fees can vary
Thank you for your question. It is difficult to pin down an exact cost for breast lift surgery because there are a variety of different types of breast lifts. A crescent lift or Periareolar lift are relatively small procedures that can usually be done under local anesthesia. These are relatively inexpensive.
A full breast left is performed under a general anesthesia and certainly would be more expensive.
I think that your best option would be to seek the guidance of a board certified plastic surgeon and determine which lift is best for you. That would allow you to compare apples to apples. Once you know which type of lift you need you can seek out the surgeon whose experience, and fee structure work best with you.

Full Breast Lift Costs in Los Angeles
A full breast lift in Los Angeles at the low end may be $7000. At the high end, maybe $15000. Do not select the plastic surgeon solely based upon price. Find the board certified plastic surgeon with ELITE CREDENTIALS who performs hundreds of breast lifts per year.
Breast lifts are cheapest when they are only done once
The revision rate for breast lift surgery is a bit higher than other cosmetic procedures- make sure you are working with a board certified plastic surgeon who has a busy practice doing breast lift procedures. The breast lift gets expensive when it needs to be revised.

The Least Expensive Breast Lift
"The least expensive breast lift is the one done right the first time"
1. Make sure your surgeon is certified by a REAL board - the American Board of Plastic Surgery
2. A great way to get a good referral is to call your local major hospital and ask to be connected to the Operating Room. Then ask one of the operating room nurses, or - better yet - one of the anesthesiologists, which plastic surgeon they would send their family member to. The O.R. nurses and anesthesiologists watch everybody operate, and they can give you a good recommendation.
3. You are NOT shopping for a product that is the same no matter where you get it. Don't make a decision based on price alone. Remember - "The least expensive breast lift is the one done right the first time".

Breast lift cost in North Carolina
The cost of all cosmetic and elective surgery varies greatly by geographic region. It also varies by surgeon and by technique. In my practice, the average cost of a vertical breast lift procedure is about $5400. This is the most common lifting procedure that I perform and involves lifting and reshaping the breast tissue.
Breast lift cost
The proper breast lift for you is a complex decision process determined based on your desires, anatomy, practicality, availablility, picture review, weight loss, changes during pregnancy & nursing, etc. Sometimes a brest lift is best achieved with an implant (I understand this is not your desire)othertimes it may require actual lifting of the nipple/gland and sometimes a combination is best. This is usually determined at the time of the initial consultation but may need to be adjusted intra-operatively.
The choice of incisions vary tremendously and depend on the extent of the drooping (called ptosis). Incisions may be limited to or around the areola (the pigmented part of the nipple/areola complex), may extend straight down from the nipple, and/or may require and incision under the breast as well. If implants are required, I generally prefer smooth implants placed under the muscle using an incision under the breast.
Although I understand your desire to obtain the price; I can't give you a fixed price for several reasons. Prices depend on:
- Extent of the procedure
- Type of implant required, if necessary (range anywhere from $400 up to $2000)
- Do you want it done in a hospital, office surgical suite, or surgicenter and the prices vary accordingly with the last being the most affordable.
- Do you want a nurse, a surgeon, or a Board Certified Anesthesiologist to perform anesthesia?
Depending on these factors breast lift can range anywhere from $4000 up to $10,000. Think about it and make the right choice. For your information, our typical cost currently averages about $5500-7000 for a breast lift procedure and up to $10,000 for a combined (implant) procedure (depending on the extent of the lift). These fees include surgeon's fees, a certified anesthesiologist, accredited outpatient surgicenter, saline filled smooth round implants, and initial garments and dressings, and post-operative visits. Many other options are available and prices do vary accordingly.
There are many kinds of breast lifts and each of them require different approaches and a different amount of work. The average cost for this procedure with me is from $7,500-$15,000.
Breast Lift cost depends on technique and geographical area
Thank you for your question. I noticed it has been three years since your inquiry, so I thought it prudent to update the answer. In general the same rules apply. Geographical area is usually what dictates price. But, now that more advanced techniques have become available, prices are subject to increase. One such technique is the Ultimate Breast Lift which reshapes and anchors the newly formed breast mound to achieve longevity of the lift. There is no vertical scar which inherently weakens the skin envelope and the UBL provides upper pole fullnes without the need for a breast implant. Other technical advances have made plastic surgery aesthetically more desirable and thus more costly.
I hope this helps.
