How Much Does Breast Lift Plastic Surgery Cost?Posted on March 2, 2018
Breast lift cosmetic surgery costs could marginally vary between two practices, and sometimes even between two patients at the same practice. Practice location, type of anesthesia used, the choice of surgical venue, the fee charged by the surgeon, and the pre- and post-operative expenses are some of the key cost components in breast lift surgery.
The surgeon will educate the patient about all aspects of breast lift, including its estimated costs. Patients should feel free to ask questions about the costs, insurance and financing, and make a carefully considered decision. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery provides breast lift to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and surrounding locations.
The following factors will go into determining the overall cost of the breast lift procedure:
Location of the Practice
The cost of breast lift plastic surgery can vary from one city to another due to the differences in regional economies. More dollar amount conscious patients may even travel to another city if they find the cost of surgery more affordable in that area. Main metropolitan areas and prime urban centers often have slightly higher costs because they typically have to bear higher real estate costs and other overheads.
The skill, training and experience of the surgeon who will perform breast lift can influence the costs of procedure to some extent. Board certified plastic surgeons, in particular, invest in latest techniques, continuing education, and strive to provide the highest standards of care. They are more in demand, and could be hard-pressed for time.
Therefore, the surgeon’s fee may be relatively higher in such cases. It is usually worth the extra cost to receive the best quality treatment and personalized care from an experienced and board certified plastic surgeon.
Surgical Venue and Anesthesia Costs
The type of anesthesia and sedation that a surgeon uses for breast lift can vary from one patient to another. General anesthesia will involve additional fee of the anesthesiologist or a certified anesthetist nurse.
Extent of Surgery
Some patients may have severely drooping breasts, requiring breast lift in conjunction with breast augmentation surgery. In such case, the overall price tag will increase, even though a combined procedure is more cost-effective than two surgeries performed separately. Sometimes breast lift may be performed as part of a mommy makeover, which will also have different way of cost assessment for the procedure.
The monetary amount of breast lift may be fully or partially covered under medical insurance in exceptional cases. If the patient suffers from pain, rashes, infection or obstruction of movement due to severely sagging breasts, insurance coverage may be possible.
Some patients may not want to pay upfront for the breast lift costs, but this should not deter them to receiving the benefits of this procedure. Professional medical care financing companies can offer them specialized loans with competitive interest rates and affordable monthly installments.
