How much would a breast lift cost in Los Angeles, California? What type of payment plans are there?

Hi I recently turned 18 and have lost around like 35 pounds which left me with saggy breasts. I also unfortunately make minimum wage, but would really like this procedure. Any info. would be appreciated thanks.

There are financing options at most offices, but please do not select your surgeon based upon price.  I would search for the board certified plastic surgeon who you feel is most likely to give you the best results and who performs hundreds of these procedures each year. I would look at patient reviews as well as before and after photos on that surgeon's website.

Thanks for the question. When it comes to costs of surgery, there may be many “variables” involved. The specific surgeon's credentials/experience level (or lack thereof), the specific geographic area you are looking at, the different operations available, the location of the procedure (quality of surgery facility), type/quality of anesthesia provider,  type of breast implants… are some of the potential variables involved.  You will find some average costs of surgery on this website and on individual plastic surgeons' websites as well.

In regards to outcome of the planned procedure, more important than costs of the procedures will be careful selection of your plastic surgeon. I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.

Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery. Ask to SEE lots of examples of their work AND preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done.

Be very careful with your decision-making. You will find, while doing your due diligence, that there are many different “specialties” who will offer their services to you; again, I strongly recommend you concentrate on surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Again, I would also suggest that you do not base your selection of plastic surgeon primarily on costs of surgery; keep in mind that revisionary surgery may be more costly in many ways.  I hope this, and the attached link, helps. Best wishes.

Breast lift cost

A breast lift will likely cost upwards of $8000.  You can get financing through a company called CareCredit.  You can look them up on line and complete an on line application.

Breast Aug prices


Price varies but average price for breast augmentation without a lift ranges between $6,000 and $8,500 depending on saline or silicone options.  Anything less and I'd worry that corners are being cut. Any more would be unusually high. If a lift is also required, expect to pay around $10,000 and up.    CareCredit is the most commonly used financing company.  That's what we use and patients tend to like them.
