How much does an upper body lift cost?
The cost of an upper body lift varies by surgeon, geographic area, and the combination of procedures you get. Be sure to ask your surgeon what the approximate cost will be for your specific upper body lift surgery during your consultation.
The average costs for common upper arm lift procedures are as follows. However, there are generally cost savings when combining procedures versus getting individual procedures.
- Liposuction: $2,584*
- Upper Arm Lift (brachioplasty): $4,675*
- Breast Lift (mastopexy): $4,616*
*The above statistics come from the 2020 Aesthetic Plastic Surgery National Databank Statistics, which were compiled using Aesthetic Neural Network (ANN) data from 288 participating plastic surgery practices across the US. These numbers only reflect standard procedure costs (surgeon and facility fees) and may not include fees for anesthesia, medical tests, prescriptions, surgical garments, or other miscellaneous costs related to your procedure(s).
Does insurance cover an upper body lift?
Because an upper body lift is elective cosmetic surgery, insurance does not typically cover these costs. Many surgeons offer patient financing plans to make the procedures more affordable.
If your upper body lift is one of several aesthetic plastic surgeries following bariatric surgery and massive weight loss, there is a small chance that it may be covered. Be sure to check with your insurance company on what costs they cover before your surgery.
What should I consider when evaluating the cost of an upper body lift?
Choose your surgeon based on quality, training, and experience—not cost.
