Many women notice that their breasts begin to droop and become pendulous as they age, especially after pregnancy. To combat this inevitability, a breast lift procedure can return perkiness to breasts, restoring a more youthful silhouette. The total cost of a breast lift can be impacted by several factors based on your unique needs and goals. Dr. Lloyd Van Wyck can discuss the various factors that impact the cost of breast lift procedures during a consultation at our office in Ottawa, ON.
Breast Lift Cost Factors
Also referred to as a mastopexy, breast lifts are not typically covered by provincial healthcare plans. There are several elements to consider when estimating the cost of a breast lift procedure. The surgeon’s fee will have the greatest impact on your cost. The more qualified and in-demand your surgeon is, the higher the fees will be.
Another significant factor that can impact the cost of a breast lift, is the complexity of the procedure. If you have very large breasts or they droop dramatically, you may require a more extensive surgery. More incisions and specialized techniques are required for better results with larger breasts. The more advanced techniques that are required to perform your procedure, the higher your overall costs.
Your geographic location and where you undergo your procedure will also dictate some of the costs of your surgery. Facilities in areas where the cost of living is higher will be more expensive.
A breast lift can improve the overall appearance of your breasts and increase your self-confidence. Your clothes may not only fit better, but more clothing options may be available to you than ever before.
Breast Lift with other Procedures
For women who have lost a significant amount of breast tissue volume, Dr. Van Wyck may recommend a breast augmentation in conjunction with the lift. An augmentation can increase the total cost of the surgery because of additional surgical expertise required. Most augmentation surgeries also require the use of implants, which can add additional costs as well, especially depending on the type and style of implant chosen. Dr. Van Wyck can discuss the differences between your options during your consultation.
Many patients choose to undergo a breast lift at the same time as other body contouring procedures. Combining procedures can shorten recovery time and lower your overall cost because less anesthesia and surgery time are required.
A Long-term Investment
Although there is rarely a medical reason for a breast lift, the surgery can have a great impact on a your mental and emotional health. If you are considering a breast lift, it is important to remember that you are making an investment in yourself and your future. A breast lift can improve the overall appearance of your breasts and increase your self-confidence. Your clothes may not only fit better, but more clothing options may be available to you than ever before.
