Making Sense of Breast Lift Cost
As we get older, our bodies begin to go through changes that we may not find aesthetically pleasing. Women's breasts can begin to lose their shape and the skin in the area can suffer from compromised elasticity, causing them to droop and look flatter. We see many patients who would like to undergo a breast lift procedure, but have concerns about the total price of their treatment. Dr. David Passaretti can help you understand all of the different factors that can affect breast lift cost at our Darien cosmetic surgery practice. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts and you would like to meet with an experienced cosmetic surgeon to learn more about the options available to you, please contact our office and schedule a consultation.
Factors Affecting Treatment Cost
Like any cosmetic surgery procedure, there is no standardized cost that will be the same for every patient and surgeon. There are different factors and options for customized treatment that will make each surgery slightly different. Factors that can affect the cost of a breast lift procedure include:
- Doctor's fee - This portion of the treatment cost goes to the surgeon that performs your procedure. It is important to remember that medical care is not an ideal time to bargain shop. A lesser price often reflects a lower level of experience and training.
- Anesthesia fee - This fee will pay for the anesthesiologist's costs for their time and the medication.
- Facility fee - Depending on where you have your procedure performed, there may be different costs associated with the location. Surgeries conducted in a hospital setting are typically more expensive than those performed in private surgical suites, like Dr. Passaretti's certified ambulatory center.
- Type of breast lift - Dr. Passaretti employs different breast lift techniques based on a patient's anatomic structure, concerns, and cosmetic goals. A standard breast lift is the most commonly performed surgery, but for the right candidates, a doughnut mastopexy or laser breast lift may achieve the same results while remaining minimally invasive.
Some patients choose to complement their breast lift procedures by having a breast augmentation with implants or other surgery performed at the same time. This will also affect the cost of your care. Dr. Passaretti can help you decide what to include as part of your personalized treatment plan.
Financing and Insurance
Breast lift procedures are elective surgeries, which are rarely covered by insurance. Dr. Passaretti offers patient financing through CareCredit℠, and our friendly office staff will be happy to help you with the application process. Our office's primary concern is the health and well-being of our patients. We will do everything we can to ensure you are able to receive the treatment you want in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
