At one point in their lives, most women begin to notice that the shape and firmness of their breasts are not the same as they once were. The reality is, skin loses elasticity over time, sometimes causing a stretched out or elongated “droopy” look.
The natural process of aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations or even simple genetics can all play a part in the evolving appearance of your breasts.
If your breasts are sagging, and you’d love to lift them back up to where they used to be, a breast lift may be the perfect solution. Not to be confused with a breast augmentation, which is aimed at enlarging the breast, a breast lift is aimed at raising the nipple, and removing redundant skin for a firmer, perkier, more youthful-looking breast that sits higher on the chest.
After decades of wanting bigger, rounder breasts, many women today are choosing altitude over amplitude, and prefer to undergo procedures that deliver natural-looking results. Luckily, the reasonable breast lift cost at our Toronto SpaMedica clinic makes choosing to undergo a breast lift altogether feasible.
What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure which raises and reshapes sagging, deflated-looking breasts, removes excess skin, and ultimately restores a more youthful appearance to your breasts.
Some women choose to undergo a breast lift in conjunction with a breast augmentation or in combination with other procedures. Sometimes, smaller breasts which have become deflated or droopy can achieve a substantial lift and tightening effect from a breast augmentation alone.
The best approach for your body and your unique goals will be determined at your pre-surgery consultation. Bottom line: by removing excess skin and reshaping your breast tissue, your mastopexy surgeon can help you regain the shape you thought was lost – and boost your body image too.
How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost at SpaMedica Toronto?
If you’re wondering what a breast lift will cost at our Toronto clinic, that’s a perfectly understandable question to have. Even if you’re absolutely certain you want to undergo a breast lift, your budget is a worthy consideration. At SpaMedica, our standard breast lift starts at $11,999, while the inclusion of an additional procedure, such as breast implants, starts at $19,999. There may be other factors relating to your specific case or other procedures you wish to undergo, which can affect your breast lift cost as well.
Breast Lift Pricing Factors
Your exact breast lift cost at our Spa Medica clinic in Toronto will depend on several factors, including your body and your desired results. Your surgeon will discuss all of this with you in advance.
The degree of ptosis (sagging) and your existing breast volume will determine how extensive your procedure will be, which can, in turn, affect the cost. If you undergo a breast lift with implants, for instance, more time, anesthesia and equipment are required, which makes the cost a bit higher. There are four different types of breast lifts offered to address the diverse presentations of droopy breasts, and they range from least to most invasive. The type of breast lift we determine is best for your purposes can also affect your final cost.
Whether or not you choose to undergo any simultaneous procedures can, of course, also affect pricing. Keep in mind that it is ultimately more cost-effective as well as much easier on your body to have simultaneous procedures. For one thing, you only pay the additional $1,000 cost of general anesthesia once and can leverage other supplies at the same time.
Some women have an accumulation of fat cells on the side of the underarm, regardless of their body weight. Typically, the correction of this excess fat is not included in breast lift costs but is instead addressed with Lipo, which starts at $3000 per area. You could also choose to have an inverted nipple correction or an areola reduction. Some women opt to undergo their breast lift as part of a Mommy Makeover, which combines multiple procedures aimed at restoring the pre-baby body. Costs will depend on the combination of procedures you choose.
Since all surgery results in at least minimal scarring, there is always the option of undergoing breast lift scar reduction to help minimize and fade your scars. In such cases, there is an extra cost as well.
Breast Lift Alternatives
If you want the effects of a breast lift but are not sure you wish to undergo surgery, there are nonsurgical and minimally invasive alternatives to a traditional breast lift. Whether or not these will be effective in your case can be determined during your consultation.
A BreastTite RFAL radiofrequency treatment can result in some ‘lifting’ effects, as can a suture suspension of the breast tissue, which uses a mesh-anchor system to offer internal support. These are minimally-invasive procedures, so there are no scars left behind. BreastTite is a useful technique for reducing excess fatty tissue in the breast and tightening the skin. If your goal is to lose weight in your breasts while making them firmer and tighter, this could be the option for you.
