What Does a Breast Lift Cost?

When saggy breasts are getting you down and making you feel less than attractive, it’s time to consider a breast lift. A breast lift performed by an experienced board certified cosmetic surgeon can rejuvenate your bosom, giving it a youthful, perkier appearance. With this type of surgery, seek the best surgeon you can find, like the experts at Rowe Plastic Surgery in New York City and New Jersey.

But it’s natural to want to have an idea what it’s going to cost before deciding to take the next step. Your breast lift cost can vary, depending on your location, the type of procedure you get and the experience of your surgeon. A breast lift is a complex surgery, so it’s not the time to cut corners financially by going with the cheapest surgeon.

It’s more important to end up with quality results than saving a few bucks. After all, you’re going to have to live with the results. The breast surgeons in Manhattan, Long Island, New Jersey and the Hamptons at Rowe Plastic Surgery are compassionate, highly regarded doctors who listen to your concerns before reviewing your options, including a breast lift.

What Are the Different Types of Breast Lift?

Because women’s bodies come in so different shapes and sizes, it’s no surprise that plastic surgeons have a few options when it comes to performing a breast lift. Each type of lift leaves different scars. There are now six main types of breast lift, which include:

  1. Donut lift. This technique is done using a circular incision around your areola. Your nipple maintains its connection to milk glands and blood vessels. Your surgeon simply moves your nipple higher. This technique corrects mild sagging and reduces the size of your areolas.
  2. Lollipop lift. This procedure is performed to reshape or correct moderate sagging. Your cosmetic surgeon makes two incisions: one around the areola and the other from the bottom of the areola to your breast crease.
  3. Anchor lift. For a lot of sagging, the anchor lift allows the surgeon to remove a large amount of sagging tissue and excess skin. Your breast surgeon makes three incisions: one around the areola, one from the bottom of the areola to the breast crease and one along the breast crease.
  4. Crescent lift. If you have only a small amount of sagging to correct, this procedure may be the option. Your surgeon makes a small incision across the top edge of your areola. This technique also improves the position of your nipple relative to the rest of your breast.
  5. Bellasoma lift. Using this breast lift method, the plastic surgeon makes two incisions: one around the areola and another in your breast crease, which leaves minimal scarring. This is most expensive choice, as it’s the most advanced. It uses 3D technology and involves more planning from your surgeon.
  6. Scarless lift. The most recently developed procedure, this technique doesn’t use a scalpel at all. Instead it uses tiny incisions and radiofrequency to shrink your breast tissues and tighten your skin. It only works for mild sagging.

You may also choose to combine your breast lift with another procedure, but this decision also increases the final price of your lift. A breast lift with implants  adds a breast augmentation to the lift, but it may add another $4,000 or more. Your surgeon recommends the most appropriate procedure to help you reach your goals.

What’s the Price Range for a Breast Lift?

According to 2020 statistics from the American Society for Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a breast lift is about $5,000. But that’s only part of all the costs associated with having this procedure. Other costs that you may have to consider include:

  • Surgical facility fees
  • Anesthesia costs
  • Cost of medical tests
  • Prescription medications and post-operation supplies

The average price range for a breast lift in New Jersey or New York City is roughly $5,000 to $8,500 without implants. If you also want implants, you’re looking at a price somewhere between $9,000 and $15,000, depending on type of breast lift and implant choices you make.

Does Health Insurance Cover a Breast Lift?

Even though the way you look has an impact on your mental health, that’s not how insurance companies see it. Most of the time, a breast lift is considered an elective procedure, so there’s no coverage for it. Cosmetic surgery has to be medically necessary for there to be health insurance coverage. Some situations in which breast surgery may be considered medically necessary include:

If you want a breast lift, plan to pay for it out of pocket. You may want to save up for it before having the procedure or use a payment plan to help finance the out-of-pocket costs. The cost of a breast lift can also be financed using a major credit card or a personal loan.

Is a Breast Lift Worth it?

If you’re considering paying for this procedure yourself, you definitely want to be sure a breast lift is worth the expense. That’s a decision you have to make, but a breast lift addresses problems that may be making you self-conscious and unhappy with your appearance. If you have decreased breast volume, drooping nipples, sagging breasts or uneven breasts, the benefits of the procedure include:

  • Better-fitting clothes
  • Improved breast shape and projection
  • More cleavage
  • Improved self-confidence

The results of a breast lift are long-lasting, usually 10 to 15 years or more. The procedure doesn’t stop aging or affect gravity, and weight fluctuations shorten its lifespan. Most women, though, feel that having a procedure that restores a youthful appearance and self-confidence is absolutely worth it.
