The monetary amount of breast lift cosmetic surgery procedure can vary from one practice to another and also from one patient to another at the same practice. Factors impacting the costs include the practice location, the costs of anesthesia and surgical facility, surgeon’s fee, and pre- and post-operative expenses. During the initial consultation, the surgeon will explain about the estimated sticker price.
Breast lift is typically performed as an elective surgery and the costs will not be covered by health insurance. Therefore, it is a good idea to have full clarity about the costs and financing options before making a final decision. Amazing and committed board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Nasir provides breast lift surgery to patients in New Haven, Westport, Fairfield County, Fairfield, Bridgeport, CT, New York, and surrounding locations.
Length and Complexity of Surgery
The surgeon will customize the breast lift procedure after taking into account the specific anatomical and cosmetic needs of the patients. Depending on the length and complexity of the plastic surgery, the costs of breast lift may vary. In some cases, the patient may need a combination of breast implants and breast lift, which will add to the costs.
Three common options for surgical venue include a hospital, an accredited surgical center, and a private surgical suite. The monetary amount and benefits associated with each option will differ. In rare cases, the patient may need an overnight stay at the surgical facility, which will increase the costs. If breast lift is performed using general anesthesia, it will involve the fee of an anesthesiologist or a certified nurse anesthetist. This fee can vary according to their skills and experience.
Breast lift is often performed as part of a mommy makeover procedure. In some cases, breast lift and tummy tuck surgery are combined to create more harmonious outcomes. Women who want to increase the breast size as well as create bouncier and perkier breasts may have to choose both breast implants and breast lift.
Cost-effectiveness of a combined procedure is better because the costs of anesthesia, surgical venue costs, and the surgeon’s fee are incurred only once. However, in absolute terms the costs will increase because the surgery will be longer and more complex in case of a combined procedure.
In exceptional cases, breast lift costs may be fully or partially covered by insurance. If the patient suffers from skin rashes, pain or obstruction of normal activities due to severely sagging breasts, she may be able to receive insurance coverage depending on the insurance plan.
