Breast Lift Cost
A breast lift procedure is performed to lift, tighten and reposition the breasts to rejuvenate their appearance. It is an extremely popular procedure that is often undertaken by patients after pregnancy or weight loss has resulted in their breasts sagging. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, the average cost of a breast lift procedure in 2020 was over $5,000. However, RealSelf states that the average cost of a breast lift is around $8,000, so most mastopexy procedures will be between these two figures. The cost of a breast lift procedure does, therefore, significantly vary as many factors impact the total cost of a patients procedure, including:
- The technique performed
- If another surgery is combined with the procedure
- Type of anesthesia used
- The length of the surgery
- Hospital or operating room charges
- Experience and expertise of surgeon
- Surgery location
- Aftercare products
- Consultations and check-up appointments
- Post procedure complications
Mini Breast Lift Cost
Mini breast lift techniques are performed to address more minimal concerns of sagging and tightening. These techniques tend to include a donut breast lift and a half-crescent breast lift. Both these procedures produce minimal scarring compared to the more extensive breast lift techniques as the incision line is only created around the areola. During a half-crescent breast lift, the incision line is made around half the circumference of the areola, while a donut lift requires an incision line around the entire areola. These procedures allow for some excess skin or tissue to be removed and minimal tightening to be performed. Since these mini breast lift techniques are the least extensive types of procedures they tend to be priced at the lower end of the average price range. RealSelf states that the average price range is between $2,075 and $14,000 and so mini breast lifts will tend to be at the lower end of this range.
Breast Lift And Reduction Cost
A breast reduction procedure is performed to reduce the size of a patient’s breasts for aesthetic or medical reasons. Breast reduction patients very often have a breast lift performed alongside their surgery as having large breasts can result in significant sagging due to the large weight.

Insurance often covers the costs of a breast reduction procedure if the size of the patient’s breasts are causing health issues such as chronic pain or rashes. However, this does not mean that insurance providers will also pay for these patients to combine their procedure with a breast lift. There are, therefore, cases where insurance companies will help finance the breast reduction and the patient pays the additional cost to have a breast lift undertaken. You would need to speak to your insurance provider to discover what funding you would qualify for.

Breast Augmentation With Lift Cost
A breast augmentation procedure is frequently performed alongside a breast lift as many patients want to enhance the volume of their breasts and reduce sagging. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, the average cost of a breast augmentation procedure can range from $6,000 to $12,000. However, RealSelf state that the average price of a breast augmentation procedure is around $6,400, which tends to be closer to the average cost of a Dallas augmentation procedure.
Since neither of these breast procedures tend to be covered by insurance providers so the majority of patients who undergo these procedures have to finance it themselves. This is why most surgeons offer a variety of financing options so that patients can receive a loan and pay for their surgery with manageable monthly payments. Additionally, choosing to combine the two breast surgeries often means that a reduced price is offered for one of the surgeries, and so undergoing them together will often be significantly cheaper than undergoing them separately.

Breast Lift With Fat Transfer Cost
A breast lift with a fat transfer procedure would involve combining a breast lift with a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure. Any fat transfer procedure involves performing liposuction on an area of the body so that the fat can be harvested to be used for the transfer. This fat must then be purified to ensure that only the fat cells are taken to be injected into the breasts. This procedure is often combined with a breast lift as many patients have concerns regarding both the position of the breasts as well as the volume. A fat transfer breast augmentation achieves a more natural-looking and more minimal breast enhancement.
RealSelf state that the average cost of a fat transfer breast augmentation is $9,225. For more in-depth information on what a fat transfer procedure entails and the average cost of the procedure, you can read our blog ‘A Patient’s Guide To A Fat Transfer Procedure In Dallas’.
Cost Of Breast Implant Removal And Lift
There are many reasons why a patient may have their breast implants removed, including because they have changed their mind over the implants they had inserted, they are suffering medical issues such as Capsular Contracture or their implants have ruptured. Regardless of the reason, a patient undergoes a Breast Implant Revision or Removal Procedure, they may not wish to have implants replaced. In these cases, some patients choose to undergo a breast lift procedure as they are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts after their implants have been removed. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, the average cost for a breast implant removal procedure in 2020 is $3,049. The cost of a breast lift procedure would significantly add to the surgery cost since the average price of a breast lift is much more than for implant removal.
Laser Breast Lift Cost
There are various non-surgical breast lift options available to patients who do not want to undergo an extensive surgical procedure. One of the non-surgical breast lift treatments patients can undergo is a laser breast lift. Lasers are used to remove dead skin cells from the breasts and increase collagen production so that the skin’s elasticity is increased and the breasts are rejuvenated. According to Healthline, the average cost for a laser breast lift treatment is between $1,144 and $2,071.
Vampire Breast Lift Cost
The vampire breast lift is another non-surgical technique that can be undertaken to lift the breasts. This procedure is significantly different from laser techniques as blood, taken from your own body, is injected into the breasts. The platelet-rich plasma from within your blood is used to increase blood circulation in the breasts which results in a small lift of the breasts as well as making any wrinkles or scars less obvious. According to Healthline a vampire breast lift tends to cost $1,700 and has a lasting result for many years.
