What is included in the procedure?
If you’re considering breast lift surgery, remember costs may vary between clinicians. Ask for an estimated quote in advance and find out what is included, so you can feel confident making your decision.
Before the breast lift
In the initial stages of preparing for breast lift surgery, a consultation with your doctor will review your medical history, discuss your expectations and break down the costs involved.
Some clinicians charge a fee for this appointment so check in advance. At this stage, they may request that you schedule a mammogram to check your breast tissue.
The cost of breast lift surgery usually depends on the type of technique you have done. The most common types are:
- Crescent Lift – the least invasive procedure offers a minor lift. It’s often paired with a breast augmentation.
- Lollipop Lift – this technique doesn’t use implants and is suitable for mild sagging or to reshape breasts where the nipple points downwards.
- Anchor Lift – the oldest and most invasive technique, used in cases of severe sagging.
- Benelli Lift – also known as the ‘doughnut’ lift – it improves asymmetry in the nipples and fixes mild sagging.
The incision pattern and technique used is decided collectively between you and your doctor in the initial consultation, based on the amount of lift you require. The more lifting involved, the higher the cost tends to be.
Along with the surgery fees, the overall cost may also include other charges for anaesthesia, facility expenses or the clinician’s time.
Following the surgery, you’ll most likely need to wear a surgical support bra. Your doctor may prescribe some pain medication for the first week of recovery too, that can alleviate any discomfort or tenderness you may be experiencing.
A follow-up mammogram may also be advised to check for any changes in the breast tissue.
Breast lift - how to find prices
When it comes to finding the right price for your breast lift surgery, shop around and compare quotes. The overall price is affected by several factors that you should look out for, such as:
- Amount of lift.
Choosing the right surgeon
Surgeons can also impact the cost of the surgery, depending on their qualifications, seniority in the clinic and level of expertise. When deciding on a surgeon, it’s a good idea to check that they have:
- Board certification.
- Plenty of experience – with results to back it up.
- Positive reviews.
Alternatives to breast lift surgery
When it comes to altering your breast size and shape, there are several options available depending on what you want to achieve.
A breast augmentation can not only alter the shape of your breast, but also the size. It’s often used in conjunction with a breast lift to increase the cup size after a recent weight loss or after pregnancy.
