Many women, after experiencing childbirth and breastfeeding, find the fullness and firmness of their breasts has changed, and lax skin has caused unwanted sagging. At Longwood Plastic Surgery, we specialize in all forms of breast enhancement, including breast lifts (mastopexy) designed to lift and restore the shape and position of women’s breasts for a perkier, more youthful chest profile.

How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost?

The cost of a mastopexy is something every patient must consider before determining if a breast lift is right for them, and at LPS, we do everything we can to keep our procedure costs as competitive as possible. Our procedures are performed in our outpatient surgery suite with a highly trained surgical staff and board certified anesthesiologists, so we can minimize additional associated fees. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons lists the average price of a breast lift in the United States at $4,693. We understand the decision to proceed can be difficult without financing options, so we’ve partnered with leading lenders in healthcare financing to ease your mind about making this investment in yourself. We’re also happy to provide success stories of past patients, who often say their breast lift with LPS was the best decision they’ve ever made.

How Does a Breast Lift Work?

Breasts come in all shapes and sizes, so every breast lift is personal to your desired goals and body type. With a variety of options, your LPS surgeon can walk you through what your procedure would entail to lift and restore your breasts to their ideal shape and position. The breast lift itself may involve removing excess skin, reducing and repositioning the areola and nipple, and aligning your proportions with your frame for a pleasing chest-to-hip ratio. 

There are several types of incisions your LPS provider may recommend. These may include:

  • A small crescent-shaped incision around your areola for patients who need less lift and contouring
  • A full circle around your areola for more moderate lifting and shaping
  • A lollipop-shaped incision around the areola and downward to the inframammary fold, which provides more access to the breast and glandular tissue
  • An inverted T (also called anchor) lift to remove and reshape larger amounts of breast tissue.

For some, pairing a breast lift with a breast augmentation is the procedure of choice, to restore lost breast volume and create a fuller chest profile.

What Results Can I Expect?

Some aspects of your breast lift will be immediately visible, even with the compression garments applied after your procedure to hold your new breasts in place. Their position on your chest wall will be improved, and if you’ve had implants placed, their size difference will be visible. You may also feel more weight on your chest from the implants. There will be some swelling to contend with, but this subsides over the few weeks following your procedure. Your clothing will fit better, bras will be more comfortable, and as your new breasts settle in the 4-6 months post-op, your confidence and comfort in your skin will grow.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Breasts of any size and shape can be lifted with mastopexy, which can significantly improve your self-confidence and comfort with your body, especially after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Women who are in general good health and don’t smoke find more success with their healing process and final results. Your LPS surgeon can go through all the ways in which your breast lift will be performed and what to expect during and after the procedure in your comprehensive consultation.

“Dear Dr. Morris, I truly cannot thank you enough, not only for your extreme generosity and waving my surgery fees, but for being able to fix something that has been such a huge insecurity of mine for the past 20+ years.  My note was a relatively involved/difficult surgery and I am so grateful to you for doing it for me.* “
