Breast Lift Cost: Budgeting for an Enhanced Bustline

Breast lift cost primarily depends on your surgeon's fees, facility fees, the inclusion of breast implants, and other factors. When you choose the right surgeon, a breast lift can be a beautiful investment in your quality of life. If you are considering a breast lift, Dr. Craig Foster can take note of your needs and goals to recommend a treatment plan, and fully explain the cost of providing the results you desire. He also offers financing plans that can place the cost of treatment within virtually any budget. We invite you to take a closer look at the factors that affect breast lift cost, and to schedule a consultation at our Manhattan, New York, office to learn more about how you can benefit from this treatment.

Surgeon's Fees

In almost all cases, a more experienced surgeon will charge more than a less experienced surgeon. This is primarily because a surgeon who has spent many years in practice is more likely to deliver beautiful results. When you consider the expense of a revision surgery, which may become necessary if you are unsatisfied with the results of your breast lift, choosing a more experienced surgeon can more than justify the higher fees. 

Dr. Foster has a private surgical suite that allows patients to not only receive every step of care under one roof, but also avoid the expense of third-party venues.


Breast lift surgery is almost always performed under general anesthesia to maintain your comfort. When anesthesia is administered by an anesthesiologist, you can expect to pay a higher hourly rate for the service than if it is administered by a nurse anesthetist. While both are qualified to administer anesthesia, many patients find that the anesthesiologist's higher level of training gives them greater peace of mind. To ensure patient safety, Dr. Foster works exclusively with a board-certified anesthesiologist.

Facility Fees

A breast lift can be performed in a hospital, ambulatory surgical center (ASC), or a surgeon's private suite. A hospital is the costliest option, but if a patient has conditions that increase risks during surgery, it can be the best option. An ASC is a third-party surgical venue used for outpatient procedures, and it carries lower fees than a hospital. Private surgical suites are the most economical option because the surgeon does not have to pay a third party for use of the facility. Dr. Foster has a private surgical suite that allows patients to not only receive every step of care under one roof, but also avoid the expense of third-party venues.

Breast Lift with Implants

Many women choose to receive breast implants as part of undergoing a breast lift, which will increase the overall cost of surgery. Breast implants can be filled with either saline or silicone. While silicone implants provide what many women consider to be a more realistic feel, they cost more than saline implants.
