Breast Lift with Implants: $6500-$7500
Breast augmentation performed in combination with breast lift is one of the more commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures. Prices for this procedure vary widely and depend on several variables. It’s important to make sure that your fee quote includes the surgeon’s fee, facility fee, anesthesia charge, implant cost and pre and post-operative care. Each of these components may vary widely depending upon the surgeon’s practice.
Generally, surgeons who operate in dedicated outpatient cosmetic surgery facilities are able to offer lower facility fees than those who operate in hospital based practices. The surgeon’s fee can vary as well depending on regional differences and levels of local competition. Anesthesia charges can vary and this may be related to the use of a nurse anesthetist verses a physician anesthesiologist. Finally, there may be wide variation in implant charges, depending upon the type of implant chosen. For instance silicone implants are more expensive than saline implants.
It’s also important to have some understanding of the surgeon’s revisional surgery policy and the implant manufacturers warranty policy. Hopefully, this won’t be necessary, but revisions may be required for a multitude of reasons. When these situations arise, it’s important to understand what expenses you may incur.
When all of these variables are considered, fees in the Midwestern United States range from $6500 to $7500. It’s important to remember that although price is an important component of your decision, it’s not the only consideration. Make sure you have a comfort level with the surgeons experience and reputation and their ability to communicate with you.

But in general, the price of an augmentation mastopexy mostly depends on:
- Type of lift needed - a periareolar lift is much quicker to perform than a full inverted T lift with a lollipop in between. The longer your surgeon is in the OR, the more your surgery will cost.
- Type of implant wanted/utilized - silicone implants are more expensive than saline to purchase and thus directly increase the total cost of a breast lift augmentation.
- Experience & expertise of your plastic surgeon -
- City, State and/or Region - surgeons in major metros like NYC tend to charge more than surgeon's of equal (or even greater) experience & expertise practicing in less populated markets.
Hope that helps and good luck going forward, Dr. DeLuca

Can implants cause a breast lift?
I'm not sure what you are asking. Do you want an augmentation and hope this will lift your breasts or you are contemplating an augmentation in conjunction with a breast lift? In a woman with pseudoptosis (some breast tissue is below the breast crease, but the nipple is at the crease level) a breast augmentation with implants caqn give you a lift. If the skin envelope is sagging and stretched out with the nipple below the crease or at the bottom of the breasts than you will need a lift +/- an augmentation. I personally do not do both procedures together if a major lift is required (more than just moving the nipple-areola up a couple of cm). The cost of an augmentation depends if you get saline vs silicone gel implants, region of the country. Our all inclusive costs are $7,500-8,800. You should consult a board certified plastic surgeon who can explain you options based on you physical examination. Good luck!

To ensure that you are receiving quality work at the most cost effective prices, consult with board certified plastic surgeons that own their own nationally accredited facilities. The quality must be maintained at the highest level to maintain accreditation. The surgeons also have incentive to hire and train quality staff (to ensure that surgery is efficient and enjoyable), to ensure comfortable and private facilities (to encourage referral), and to eliminate waste (to ensure that these facilities can compete effectively).
