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.
