How Much Does It Cost to Get a Breast Lift?

The content below is part of the free Bustmob Academy app. Enjoy!

Your breast lift cost shouldn’t be a mystery.

So we’ll get straight to the point. The average cost of a breast lift is $8,000-$10,000 at Amelia Aesthetics and includes: 

  • All pre-op, surgical, and post-op care
  • Anesthesia
  • Dedicated Patient Care Coordinator
  • Jenny Eden’s Scar Salve
  • Recovery gear 
  • Step-by-step planning and recovery guide

Added bonus, your consultation fee is applied to your breast lift surgery cost.

Of course, your exact cost may vary depending on your location, surgeon, and your specific breast lift procedure.

You may choose to add implants to your lift, which will increase the price, or may only need a lift on one side, which will make it a little cheaper.

Your total cost will boil down to what type of lift you need based on your anatomy and goals, your surgeon, and your unique surgical plan. 

To get a sense of your breast lift surgery cost, use the instant online pricing tool by Amelia Aesthetics. 

Knowing how much something costs before you walk in the door shouldn't be a luxury.

It still baffles us that the standard practice for cosmetic surgery is to withhold the price of your procedure until your consultation as if it wasn’t thousands of dollars that likely need to be accounted for in your budget. 

No one wants to be anxious about pricing going into their consultation, especially when considering something so important and life-changing. 

You’ve got other things to think about, like planning for recovery and understanding your unique risks and benefits. 

Always ask what’s included in your cost.

It's a shame to wait until your consultation to know what your cosmetic procedure costs.

But what’s worse is sometimes it’s not clear what is even included in the price you’re given.

Not every quote you get will include things like surgeon fees and anesthesia, so be sure to know exactly what your quote includes to avoid surprise fees.

Keep in mind there may be additional costs like medical tests and medications (not to mention your new wardrobe). 

Depending on the type of insurance you have, your medications and/or tests may be covered in part or entirely. Be sure to look over your policy to know if your insurance will cover the cost of any testing or medications.

Also ask about payment plans, low-interest credit cards, and other financing options. You can learn more about how others pay for their plastic surgery in the supportive and private Bustmob Community

Wondering why a breast lift costs a little more than a breast augmentation?

We’re glad you asked. Breast lift surgery is a bit more involved than breast augmentation. 

Breast lifts: 

  • Remove excess skin that causes sagging breasts
  • Address placement
  • Reshape the breasts
  • Reposition the breast tissue

At Amelia Aesthetics, bra line liposuction is also included in the cost of a breast lift procedure to add shape to the breasts. The Amelia surgeons will also resize and shape your areolae during your breast lift if you'd like.

What about breast implants? Can you add them to a lift?

Great question! Changes in the shape and size of our breasts can happen after weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and even simply aging.

Since the two procedures address different concerns, it’s really common to have a breast lift and breast augmentation, aka implants, at the same time. 

Breast implants add volume while a breast lift address shape (among other things).

Of course, combining the procedures does up the cost, but in the long run, it’s typically cheaper to do both at the same time. Having a breast lift and breast augmentation at the same time means one total fee, one anesthesia sleep, and one recovery. 

Okay, but how much is a breast lift with implants?

As you can probably guess, your total cost will depend on your geographic location and the plastic surgeon. However, you can expect between $12,000 and $16,000 on average at Amelia Aesthetics.
