Breast Reduction Costs
Breast Reduction Costs
Each liposuction breast reduction procedure is tailored to the needs of the patient. Therefore, the liposuction breast reduction costs may vary from patient to patient. To get an accurate estimate for your reduction mammoplasty, you need to request a treatment plan from your cosmetic surgery facility, or speak with your cosmetic surgeon about the cost of your treatment.
However, there are numerous things that could affect the cost of a liposuction breast reduction procedure. To find out what factors could influence the cost of your breast reduction with liposuction procedure, please read our overview below.
The Type of Procedure
Some cosmetic surgery procedures cost more than others and this is due to either the duration of the procedure or the equipment used during the treatment. Because of these variations in cost, it is detrimental for patients to have a complete treatment plan where they can view each aspect of their treatment in more detail.
Naturally, it is possible to find the average cost of a certain procedure online, but that does not mean that this price will be accurate for your treatment. As mentioned earlier, there are many individual factors to consider, so the most accurate estimate is always obtained from a cosmetic surgery facility.
Your Cosmetic Surgeon
Choosing the right surgeon for your procedure is important. Experienced surgeons will also charge a little more for their services than an unexperienced surgeon. So, if the cost of your surgeon seems a lot cheaper than the national average, you may want to consider why your procedure is provided at such a reduced price.
When it comes down to choosing a surgeon, it is best not to look too much at the price at first. Even though you should take cost into consideration, always choose an experienced surgeon who has performed similar procedures numerous times in the past instead of a surgeon who has little experience performing a reduction mammoplasty.
Most patients can view the experience of a surgeon on the website of the respective cosmetic surgery clinic. Clinic websites usually include an about page, which gives you more information about all available surgeons and other staff at the clinic. In addition to that, there should also be several before and after pictures of patients who had similar procedures done, giving you a better idea of the skills of a surgeon.
Naturally, nothing beats meeting a surgeon in person, because you also need to feel comfortable with the person who will be executing your surgery. If you have found an experienced surgeon, but do not feel comfortable with that surgeon, then it is still advised to choose another surgeon with similar experience.

If you have been browsing the internet for cosmetic surgery prices, you may have come across clinics abroad who offer reduction mammoplasty or other cosmetic procedures at a price that is considerably cheaper than what you would pay in Australia. However, choosing a treatment abroad is not always a good idea, because cosmetic surgery tourism does include a lot of risk.
Firstly, many patients encounter a communication gap when having their treatment abroad. Most countries offering cosmetic procedures at cheap prices do not have English as their main language, which could result in some problems during the consultation before your procedure and on the day of the surgery itself.
Speaking to an overseas surgeon about your cosmetic treatment can be quite difficult, since many patients find it hard to convey their aesthetic goals. Subsequently, some patients leave a clinic abroad with other results than they hoped for. Even though good communication is no guarantee you will get the results you want, the risk of unwanted results does increase with a language barrier in a foreign country.
The standard of care in overseas countries, where cosmetic surgery procedures are relatively cheap, is quite different from the standard of care upheld in Australia. Also, the qualifications of an overseas surgeon can be quite different than the qualifications of an Australian surgeon, since they are held to another professional standard.
Lastly, patients choosing a clinic overseas often cannot get access to proper aftercare, considering they need access to their clinic for this. Unless you have an international guarantee from the cosmetic surgery clinic you obtained your treatment from, many Australian surgeons do not want to deal with complications caused by another surgeon. Those that do, often need to charge for their services to undo the damage that was done.
In conclusion, while the breast reduction costs of overseas procedures may appear attractive, the risk of complications accompanying an overseas cosmetic surgery treatment are considerably higher than treatments executed in Australia. Therefore, it could be a better idea to seek your treatment in Australia.
Breast Reduction Costs & Fees
Fees that could be charged for your treatment depend on some of the factors we discussed already. Typical fees that may contribute to the average breast reduction costs of your procedure include the surgeon fee, hospital bed fee (in case you are required to stay overnight), theatre or day surgery cost, assistant fee, devices and consultation fees.
Like the previous factors mentioned above, all these fees are variable. For example, sometimes a patient does not have to stay overnight, which eliminates the hospital bed fee from your overall breast reduction costs. Some surgeons also offer a first free consultation, which could also save you some money on your procedure.
The cost of a treatment executed by an experienced surgeon in a clinic with high standards may be slightly higher than a clinic in an overseas country run by an inexperienced surgeon. However, sometimes saving a couple of bucks is simply not worth the risk for the patient who is having the treatment; this is certainly the case for most patients considering cosmetic surgery tourism.
