Breast Lift Surgery
Breast lift is a major cosmetic surgery procedure, and a woman should choose it after careful deliberation. While price remains a starting point for many women considering an elective surgery such as breast lift, the choice of a marvelous surgeon should override other concerns.
During the pre-op consultations, the surgeon will discuss the estimated costs of breast lift, apart from other aspects of the surgery. The first goal of the plastic surgeon will be to help the patient make an informed decision. The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery provides breast lift to patients in Houston, TX, and nearby locations.
Scope of Procedure
The patient should try and understand everything for which she will be paying before deciding to go ahead with breast lift plastic surgery. To some extent, the price will depend on how long and extensive the surgery is likely to be. In complex cases, where the patient suffers from a significant degree of sagging, or where the woman’s breasts are very large, the surgery may be longer and costlier.
If breast lift is performed by a highly qualified, board certified and experienced cosmetic surgeon their fee may be relatively higher than that of a lesser trained surgeon. Furthermore, a surgeon may decide to perform the procedure at a hospital or an ambulatory surgical center. The costs in case of hospital facilities will be higher. Some surgeons may choose to perform the procedure at a private surgical suite, which will bring down the dollar amount.
Like most products and services, the costs of health care also vary from one region to another. Cost of living in a particular area will affect the average cost of breast lift performed at a practice located in that area. The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery receives patients from Houston, TX, and surrounding locations for breast lift and various other procedures.
Anesthesia and the Financial Implications
Breast lift surgery may be performed using general anesthesia in many cases. The anesthesia may be administered by an experienced or board certified anesthesiologist, or a certified anesthetist nurse. Their fee will differ according to their qualifications and experience.
Breast Lift Combined with Other Treatments
The price tag of a breast lift procedure will go up, if it is performed in combination with breast augmentation surgery, tummy tuck, liposuction or another procedure. Sometimes, it may be performed as a part of a mommy makeover. In comparison to two surgeries performed separately, the procedure becomes more cost-effective in case of combined surgeries because the costs of anesthesia, surgical facility and surgeon’s fee will be incurred only once.
Insurance for breast lift surgery will be covered only in a rare case where the severely sagging breasts are inhibiting normal movement or activity, and causing physical discomfort. In other cases, the patient will have to pay the full cost on her own.
Professional medical finance companies provide competitive loans to patients who want to fund elective surgeries such as breast lift. Loan approvals are usually achieved within a few hours. No-interest financing may be offered in some cases, if the balance has been paid in full within a prescribed time frame.
