Various factors can affect the cost of breast lift cosmetic surgery. These costs will typically include the anesthesia costs, surgeon’s fee, surgical venue expenses and other before and after surgery costs.
Patients must select a highly qualified and experienced surgeon for a breast lift, and all other considerations should be secondary.
Patients should understand that breast lift surgery costs are mostly not covered by insurance. Therefore, it is a good idea to get relevant information regarding cost and financing aspects from the surgeon during the pre-operative consultations.

Extent of Surgery
Prior to making a decision, patients must comprehend all direct and indirect costs involved in the breast lift procedure. The cost of the surgery will depend on the extent and complexity of surgery to a certain degree.
In case the patient has excessively large breast or severe droopiness, or suffers from some other complications, the surgery may take more time and cost more. The patient should consult with the surgeon to understand which technique may be most suitable for their surgery.
The cost of a breast lift plastic surgery at a hospital will usually be higher than if it is performed at a private operating suite or an ambulatory surgical center. The breast lift is typically an outpatient surgery.
However, in case the plastic surgeon advises the patient to stay overnight at the hospital, it will increase the total surgical costs. Anesthesia costs can differ depending on whether it is administered by a qualified anesthesiologist or a certified nurse anesthetist.
Combining with Other Procedures
The costs will increase if the patient chooses to combine mastopexy and another procedure such as breast implants. The benefit of combining surgical procedures is that the total cost is lower than if these procedures were performed individually.
Various expenses such as anesthesia costs, surgical venue expenses, and post-operative recovery costs will typically remain common in case the breast lift surgery is performed in combination with other procedures. Many patients choose to combine this surgery with body contouring procedures such as tummy tuck, which costs less in totalitarian terms.
A breast lift is an elective procedure which means that the patient will not receive insurance coverage in most cases.
But in exceptional cases, if heavily sagging breasts are leading to uneasiness and obstructing the performance of routine activities, then the insurance provider may offer full or partial coverage. The surgeon’s staff can assist the patient with the necessary paperwork in such cases.
The monetary difficulties and credit history should not deter a patient from getting a breast lift surgical procedure. Patients can seek the help of professional medical financing firms to provide funds for elective surgery such as breast lift. These companies often offer fixed, and low-interest financing plans and a majority of patients receive quick approvals.
