Breast Lift with Implants

Breast lift with implants cosmetic surgery is usually performed as an elective procedure. Insurance coverage will not be available for this surgery, and as a result, the dollar amount becomes an important starting point for most patients. You should assess the estimated costs against the benefits in order to make a judicious choice. 

Be prepared to ask questions related to costs and payment terms from your surgeon during your pre-op consultation. A committed and respectable surgeon will provide clear and transparent information to help you make a well-informed decision.  

Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides breast lift with implants surgery to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and surrounding communities.  

Cost-Effectiveness of Breast Implants with Lift 

At the outset, it may seem counter-intuitive when your surgeon tells you that a breast implant with lift plastic surgery is more going to be cost-effective than two surgeries performed separately.  

It is true that the cost of a combined procedure will be higher than a single surgery, but if you compare that cost with the separate costs of breast lift and breast augmentation, you will find that a combined breast lift with implants is more cost-effective.  

For the combined procedure, you will incur the general anesthesia costs, the surgeon’s fee, and the surgery venue costs only once. The financial stipulations related to preparation and recovery, including pre- and post-operative tests, mammograms, prescription medications, and other expenses will occur just once in case of breast lift with implants surgery.  

If you are a working woman, you will require leave from your workplace just once for your recovery. This may also have favorable cost benefits for some patients. Almost each one of these monetary components will occur twice if you choose breast lift and breast implants surgeries to be performed separately at different times.  

Factors Influencing the Price 

The location of a plastic surgery practice can make a difference to the overall costs of the breast augmentation with lift procedure. General cost of living and real estate costs can vary from one place to another. This will have an impact on the costs of all types of goods and services, including your plastic surgery. 

The surgeon’s fee, anesthesia expenses, and fees of any other medical professionals can vary according to their qualifications and expertise. Where your surgery is performed (whether at a hospital, an accredited surgery center or a private surgical suite) will also impact your final costs of breast implants with lift surgery. 

Costs of Breast Implants  

Implant costs are an important component you should consider when you are determining your estimated costs for breast lift with implants surgery. If you want to select ultra cohesive or gummy bear breast implants, you are likely to pay more compared to what you would have to pay for the traditional saline implants or silicone implants.  

Speak to your surgeon about the choice of implants and then assess whether it is worth paying a higher cost for the finest quality implants. Your surgeon will guide you appropriately based on your cosmetic goals and your budget.  


For all types of cosmetic procedure, a number of professional medical care financing companies can offer you competitive loans with lift surgery. Your surgeon’s office could assist or guide you about financing your procedure.
