The Cost of Breast Lift Surgery and Your Payment Options
By Brian Kobienia, MD, FACS on June 04, 2015
When patients visit with Dr. Brian Kobienia at his practice serving the Edina area, they can expect to receive comprehensive information on all of their treatment options. This includes covering the risks and benefits of a surgery as well as going over the different options out there for payment.
With this in mind, we'd like to consider the average cost of breast lift surgery (mastopexy), providing you with a good understanding of your options you have for looking your best.
The Average Cost of Breast Lift Surgery
The average cost of breast lift surgery can vary from patient to patient based on a wide variety of factors. For this reason, we do not feel that providing an average cost or even discussing a general price range for breast lift surgery would paint a full picture of all the concerns that are involved.
With that in mind, we will be more than happy to go over these matters in much greater detail during a consultation at our practice. This will provide you with ample information on the entire surgical process, including a price quote for your breast lift surgery and a full breakdown of all the costs involved.
Factors That Determine the Cost of a Breast Lift Surgery
Some of the factors that can result in a higher or lower cost for your breast lift surgery include the following:
- The location of the plastic surgery practice
- The training/expertise of the plastic surgeon(s)
- The complexity of the patient's case
- The need for combination procedures (e.g., combined breast augmentation and lift)
- Special promotions and discounts that are unique to a given practice
Will my medical insurance cover my breast lift procedure?
Most likely no.
Since breast lift surgery is typically considered an elective procedure rather than a medically necessary one, medical insurance companies are unlikely to provide any sort of coverage for the procedure. With that in mind, you may qualify for medical insurance coverage if the procedure is reconstructive in nature.
Be sure to check with your insurance provider in case you may qualify for some coverage. Policies vary, so it's better to check just in case.
Monthly Financing for Breast Lift Surgery
If the cost of a breast lift procedure proves to be a financial burden to a given household, it is possible to use monthly financing plans as a payment option. These financing plans work in a similar manner as a credit card or traditional loan. A trusted lending institution covers the total cost of a breast lift surgery. The patient is responsible for paying back this amount on a monthly basis; a reasonable interest rate will be applied to the cost of the loan.
