The cost of a breast lift varies surgeon to surgeon, region to region. Certain areas may have higher prices due to the higher cost of living, and a board-certified plastic surgeon will likely charge more than a cosmetic surgeon with less training and experience. The cost of a breast lift procedure is an important aspect of your choice to have plastic surgery, but it should not be the deciding factor. Our Boca Raton plastic surgeon outlines the cost of a breast lift below.
Associated Fees of a Breast Lift Procedure
Outside of the plastic surgeon’s fee for performing the breast lift surgery, other costs can’t be avoided without risking your safety. These include:
- Surgical facility fees: Your breast lift should be performed at an accredited surgical center where your plastic surgeon has surgical privileges.
- Anesthesia fees: Most plastic surgeries require general anesthesia, which means you’ll be unconscious during the procedure. However, laser-assisted procedures such as SmartLipo may allow for local anesthesia. Regardless, the cost of anesthesia services is an essential part of the process and your safety during the breast lift.
- Fees for Compression Garments: Compression garments are typically required for plastic surgeries such as breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, or liposuction, which helps ease swelling during recovery and aids the healing process.
Board-Certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS)
There’s a significant difference between an ABPS-certified plastic surgeon and a cosmetic surgeon. A cosmetic surgeon is someone with a medical license who has chosen to specialize in cosmetic surgery including breast lifts. A board-certified plastic surgeon has gone through additional years of training, along with oral and written exams to gain the certification. The plastic surgeon must renew this certification every ten years to make sure he or she is up to date on new surgical techniques and technologies.
While a plastic surgeon’s fee may be higher than a cosmetic surgeon’s, don’t let the difference in cost deter you from choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon such as our Dr. David Bogue in Boca Raton.
The Cost of Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures
Some women combine a breast lift with a tummy tuck or liposuction for a “mommy makeover,” which also impacts the price of a breast lift. Combining procedures can help you achieve the full results you’re looking for to address unwanted fat, drooping breasts, and loose skin from pregnancy or weight loss. The cost will be significantly higher but lower overall when you compare the average prices of each procedure on its own.
The Plastic Surgeon You Choose for Your Breast Lift Matters
While the cost may be an essential factor when it comes to choosing your plastic surgeon, don’t let a low price fool you. The plastic surgeon you want for your breast lift directly impacts your results. Do your research, read patient reviews, and look at breast lift before and after photos to make sure you’re making the right choice for your goals and safety.
Our board-certified plastic surgeon offers financing options such as CareCredit®, so you can achieve your cosmetic goals for your body without “breaking the bank.”
