cost of breast reduction surgery

The biggest factor you’ll think of once you choose to get a breast lift done is the cost. What can make it expensive and out of reach for some people is the fact that it’s not covered by most health insurance companies.

Here is a breakdown of how much it will cost you to have breast lifting surgery:

What Is And Isn’t Included

A lift surgery will cost you anywhere between $3,500 and $6,000. Typically, a surgeon will charge upfront for the anaesthesia, surgeon’s fees and facility fees. Hidden costs that you may not be aware of include lab work, prescription painkillers and antibiotics. If there’s need for other recovery aids such as medical padding, then you will be charged for them as well.

Additional Procedures

A lift surgery can be done as a single procedure or it can be combined with other breast procedures such as breast augmentation or reduction. It can also be part of a body contouring plan. If you choose to have two different procedures, such as breast augmentation and lift on the same day, you will have to pay a lot more money. However, having the two procedures at the same time will mean that you get to save on the amount of anaesthesia you will be charged for, as well as the surgeon’s and facility’s fees. In this way, it makes sense to save money by having both procedures done on the same day.

Be Aware Of The Consultation Fee

Some surgeons may or may not charge a consultation fee. In some practices, the consultation fee is included in the total surgery cost, while others prefer to charge it separately. Before you book your appointment, it’s important that you learn about the surgeon’s consultation fee policy.

Location

Did you know that where you will have your breast surgery done plays a role in how much you’ll be charged? Such cosmetic procedures tend to cost more if the facility is located in an urban area. In such locations, the demand for cosmetic surgeons is higher and there is a long waiting list as well.

There also exists the phenomenon of plastic surgery tourism. This is where you travel far in order to get your breast surgery done. As exotic as it sounds, there are certain risks involved in travelling to a place you’ve never been to before. Although it may be cheaper to get breast surgery done outside your own country, there are other costs such as travel, accommodation, risk of complications and infections.

To know exactly what the whole procedure will cost, you need to ask your surgeon what it would entail; including the hidden costs. If you were involved in an accident and need corrective surgery, then your medical insurance may choose to cover some of the expenses for you. However, if the surgery is meant purely for aesthetic purposes, you’ll be responsible for footing the bill.

Once you evaluate the expected cost of surgery, you can then figure out what financing options you need.
