Breast Lift Surgery Cost

How much does breast lift surgery cost?

Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, in Sydney with Dr Edinburg is done under a general anaesthetic in hospital and, for your comfort and care, generally involves an overnight stay. Dr Edinburg also employs highly experienced and specialised practice nurses and patient support staff to guide and support you throughout your journey with us. Breast lift surgery, therefore, involves multiple facets including other medical professionals both in and out of the hospital environment, hospital theatre facilities and hospital accommodation, all of which affect the overall cost of the procedure. At Eden Institute, you can rest assured, though, that Dr Edinburg will never compromise on the many factors involved in determining your costs.


Breast sagging is usually accompanied by loss of breast volume. As such, breast lift surgery is often done in conjunction with breast augmentation because a combined procedure may be the best way to correct the issue of both lack of volume and sagging.  There will be additional costs involved if a combined procedure is chosen (please see our combined breast lift and augmentation procedure page).

Breast lift surgery may be eligible for a Medicare item number which means Medicare rebates and private health fund cover apply. If you are not eligible for a Medicare item number, then Medicare rebates and private health fund cover do not apply. Your eligibility for a Medicare item number will be assessed during your one-on-one consultation with Dr Edinburg, after which we will provide you with a detailed personal quote outlining all the costs as well as comprehensive information and support around your planned surgery and treatment options so you are fully informed prior to making your decision. Feel free to speak with us about Medicare’s eligibility criteria when you call.

The major variable in the cost of breast lift surgery if you do not have private health fund cover or do not qualify for a Medicare item number, is the hospital where you have the surgery. Dr Edinburg will not compromise on his high standards and ethical practice so he chooses to operate at well-established and highly regarded private hospitals in Sydney. He demands the highest level of care for you from the moment you enter the hospital, whilst you undergo your surgery and during your postoperative care.

Dr Edinburg uses the most up-to-date, specialised techniques and the team that support him at Eden Institute are all highly experienced. This means we can deliver to you the very best treatment plan and the very best treatment throughout your journey with us.

This is a general guide, and in every case, will be personalised for your circumstances after you have consulted with Dr Edinburg.
