A Breast Lift is performed under General Anaesthetic in hospital. The hospital stay is one – two night stay. Small cases may be performed as day-stay.
We recommend two weeks off work, wearing a post operative garment for 6 weeks.
Try before you buy with our $100 Vectra simulation. For very large breasts or where the areola is sitting too low on the breast, the simulation is less accurate. However, the appointment is an opportunity to talk to Jessica our Practice Manager about the surgical process, costs and review of previous patient case studies.
BREAKING NEWS: We now offer a choice of Specialist Surgeons at Hunter Plastic Surgery. This means lifts are from $9,000 for patients with insurance. Visit the article about Associate Professor Dr James French joining our practice here.
Dr Moncrieff's fees:
For those limited cases where a Medicare item number applies (see more in tabs below), the total out-of-pocket cost is from $12,000. This price include the surgeon’s fee, anaesthetist’s fee, hospital stay, after care, LED light therapy for scars and your garment.
For many of our lift patients however, there is no Medicare item number meaning there are no health fund rebates. In those cases, the total cost of a breast lift with Dr Moncrieff is from $16,500.

This patient had a breast lift with Dr Moncrieff after suffering from scoliosis and asymmetrical breast footprints.
Medicare states that a rebate is only available in cases where strict conditions are met including the volume of breast tissue which sits below the breast fold. For women with children the Medicare rules limit this rebate to 1-7 years after their last child was born.
The Medicare item number is 45558 (to check with your fund).

A breast lift, or mastopexy, can help restore a firmer, shapelier breast, which will improve body contours and give the breasts a perky, youthful appearance. It is also used to treat patients who suffer medical issues with sagging breasts such as rashes or skin breakdown under the breast. Breast lift surgery has come a long way in recent times. Multiple techniques exist that fulfil your goals with minimal scarring. Our surgeon prefers short-scar breast lift surgery, creating beautiful, natural looking, and harmonious breasts with minimal scarring.
In some cases, an implant alone will be able to achieve the lifted look our patients want without the full incisions required for a surgical lift. More information about this option is in Dr Moncrieff’s blog here.
And for other women, combining a lift with an implant will give them the result they want. More about this is here.
