What Is The Cost Of A Breast Implant And Lift Combination?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am looking to get breast augmentation and mastoplexy. What do you charge usually? And what type of lifts do you preform?

A: In trying to determine cost of a combined breast implant-lift procedure, there are several variables in that combination that affect cost. One is what type of implant (saline vs silicone) and the other is what type of lift is needed. These two issues significantly affect cost due to a material issue (implant) and the time it takes to perform the procedure. (lift) Thus there are a wide range of price differences (thousands of dollars difference) when these two issues are factored into the cost equation. I would really need to know what type of implant you want and would need to see pictures of your breasts to determine the degree of sagging you have and the type of lift that is needed to improve its shape. There are four basic types of breast lifts which differ based on how much lift they create and how much scar results from doing it. So it is not a question of what type of lift I perform (you have to be able to perform them all) but what type of breast lift you need.

But for the sake of information, I will have my assistant pass along the costs of a combined silicone breast implant and vertical (lollipop) breast lift which is the most common need/request that most women have.
