What is the price range of a breast lift?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Hello! Thank you for your question. Costs for a mastopexy (breast lift) will certainly vary depending amongst surgeons as well as on your geographic location. Things to factor in from the surgical standpoint will be the facility fee, anesthesia fee, surgeon fee, other fees (e.g., liposuction, +/- implants, surgical garment, etc.) A range in price ~$5000-10000 is not unreasonable. $6-8K would be a reasonable cost on average. A consultation with a plastic surgeon will help you in determining which procedure(s) would be the right one for you. Cost also depends on the complexity of your case and how much work would need to be done to achieve aesthetically-pleasing breasts for you. Good luck and best wishes!

Breast lifts are frequently performed cosmetic surgical procedures that are associated with high rates of patient satisfaction.Prices vary widely and depend upon several variables.It’s important to make sure the quote includes the surgeon’s fee, facility fee, anesthesia charges, 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 centers are able to offer lower facility fees than those who operate in hospitals.The surgeon’s fee can vary depending upon regional differences and levels of local competition.Anesthesia fees can vary and this may be related to the use of a nurse anesthetist versus a physician anesthesiologist.

When all these variables are considered, fees in the Midwestern United States vary between $4500 and $5500.It’s important to remember that although price is an important component of your decision, it’s not the only consideration.Make sure that your surgeon is board certified and has the appropriate qualifications and experience.

Cost and insurance for breast lift

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

It is geography dependent. In Florida it runs $6000-8000. More important than price is safety and experience. Also, as an aside, breast lift, has never been a covered procedure with any insurance carrier unless it is to match a breast reconstruction for breast cancer.

Breast Lift like other cosmetic surgery varies considerably across the country and even in the same area. South Florida tends to have lower fees then more expensive areas such as New York or Los Angeles. We charge starting at $3000 + MD Anesthesia related costs for breast lift without breast implants. We charge starting at $4000 + MD Anesthesia related costs for breast lift with saline implants. Breast Lift with silicone implants start at $4500 + MD Anesthesia related costs. Since you can get quality work at lower costs, patients will travel from throughout the state, the country, and internationally to have surgery in South Florida.

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).

Consult in person with 3 experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons to understand your options.

Cost of breast lifting surgery

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Thank you for your question.

Each surgeon’s fees will be different depending on many factors.  Factors such as the certification of the surgeon, the experience of the surgeon, if the surgery is performed in the office or in a hospital / outpatient surgery center, if performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia and who is administering the anesthesia.  Don’t choose your surgeon ONLY by price, make sure they can achieve your goals.  

It can range from $6500-9500 depending on what kind of breast lift you need.

I hope this helps.

There are many different options in breast lift surgery. Your best bet is to be evaluated by a board-certified plastic surgeon who is well-versed in the many different techniques. They will be able to tell you which techniques will serve you and your aesthetic goals best. If you require a small lift such as a Crescent lift or a periareolar lift this may be less expensive than a fuller lift or reduction. Another important determinant in the overall cost of your surgery is the amount of time that it will require to complete the lift.
