Breast lifts are a popular surgical procedure for raising and reshaping the breasts and one of the most frequently asked question is, “How much does a breast lift cost?”
The price range for a breast lift is dependent on the patient’s anatomy and technique performed to achieve the best results. Costs associated with a breast lift include surgeon’s fee, facility fees, anesthesia fees, breast implant fee (if combined with breast augmentation), and lab and garment costs. A surgeon’s fee includes the doctor’s time during the operation, office visits, expertise, and all of your care. This cost is highly dependent on the technique and it’s level of difficulty needed to achieve ultimate results.
Facility fees are related to the operating room costs and prices vary greatly, though it is important to have your surgery performed at an accredited center, rather than someone’s office clinic. Anesthesia fees will vary as well, though breast lift procedures are performed under general anesthesia. If the patient chooses to have a breast augmentation paired with a lift, the implants are given to you at costs and vary depending on whether the patient chooses a saline or silicone gel implant.
Lab costs are any medical tests that needed before the surgery to ensure the patient is in good health. Garment costs refer to the compression bras needed post surgery to help reduce swelling and speed the recovery time.
