A breast lift is a popular cosmetic procedure designed to improve the appearance of your breasts. Throughout your life, you will be exposed to all sorts of things that can change the way your breasts look. The general aging process – along with gravity – will make most women’s breasts sag over time. However, this can also happen due to pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss, and other factors. In any case, a breast lift can undo all of this, making you look a lot younger.
Average Cost of a Breast Lift
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a breast lift was $4,693 in 2019. However, you should take this figure with a pinch of salt as it includes every single provider around the country and not all of them include OR costs and anesthesia. There are many places that offer really cheap breast lifts, but they usually end up displaying poor results. This isn’t something you should try to save money on – you pay for the quality of the treatment. The starting range at El Paso Plastic Surgery is $6500, though this can change based on your unique case.
Factors that Influence Your Final Mastopexy Cost
As briefly touched upon, different things can influence your final breast lift cost. For one, the place you get it done is a huge factor – as is the surgeon that performs it. You should only get this performed by board-certified plastic surgeons, specializing in breast augmentation – like Dr Ozan Sozer or Dr. Paul Phillips. If you want a breast lift from the top surgeons, you have to be prepared to pay more for it.
Your mastopexy can also be influenced by your personal needs. Some candidates only require a breast lift, while others want one alongside further breast augmentation. The more complex your treatment becomes, the more expensive it will be.
Breast Lift Overview
A breast lift – sometimes called a mastopexy – is a surgical procedure that lifts up and tightens the breasts. It can take sagging breasts and restore them to a more natural position. As a result of this procedure, the breasts are less likely to sag again at their previous rate. It can be done as a standalone treatment or used in conjunction with breast augmentation surgery to alter the size and shape of your breasts.
Many different techniques are used in a breast lift, and our surgeons will decide which one works best for your situation. Scarring is to be expected, but it will be as discreet as possible – and it fades over time. Recovery time may also vary, but most women are able to return to moderate activities within 7-10 days, then advance to vigorous activities after 4-6 weeks.
Am I a Candidate for a Breast Lift?
Breast lifts without breast augmentation are usually best suited for women with sagging breasts. You may be happy with their current size, but the shape of your breasts have sagged over time. As such, a breast lift can correct this problem and leave you with perkier breasts. If you’re unhappy with other aspects of your breasts, you may be better suited to breast augmentation.
