Cost for Breast Lift and Tummy Tuck Combined
Pricing for this surgery will vary significantly, based on the extent of a tummy tuck, and also based on the training and expertise of a plastic surgeon. The most expensive plastic surgeon may not always be the best, but the lowest priced surgeon will almost certainly be cutting corners that could impact your safety and / or results.
Look for lots of before and after photos of tummy tucks, breasts lifts and mommy makeovers. Be sure that the tummy ticks didn't leave women with unnatural looking belly buttons or scars around the belly button.
Check the credentials of your plastic surgeon including membership of ASPS and ASAPS. Check for surgical suite accreditation and ask who will be in the OR with you when you have your surgery. If you like the many photos you see, you feel like your surgeon has received excellent training and you like the surgeons philosophy, schedule a consultation. You need to feel like your surgeon listens to you and understands your goals. You need to feel a connection with staff members and you should never feel pressured into scheduling surgery. Prior to scheduling surgery, you should be able to speak to previous patients who have had the same surgery.
The most expensive surgery is one that leaves you with poor result. akin your time searching a plastic surgeon who will be making a permanent change to your body.
Prices of plastic surgery - comparison shopping
I would say that depends on what type of breast lift and tummy tuck. The general public gives more thought to buying a computer than getting plastic surgery. When you buy a computer you pick the model and features/software then you shop around for the best price. You even do this online on your current computer. If it doesn't work out you can always just return the computer and get your money back in which case you end up where you started. If you apply that reasoning to plastic surgery you would choose a procedure on your own and then shop around for the price and pick the best price. That is the way we have been trained to be consumers in this culture. However, that way of approaching plastic surgery is a loaded weapon that can explode on you. Plastic surgery is a service not a product so if you do not like it or have a problem you cannot give it back and get your money back. You also cannot ever end up where you started. What is more if you have a problem it may not be reversible or may incur additional costs to fix.
The priorities should be safety, results and value (not price) in that specific order and not price as the first and foremost. The way to go about that is to present yourself to one or more plastic surgeons with specific complaint(s) such as sagging breasts with nipples at different levels, abdominal skin hanging over the belly button etc. Then find out what type of procedure(s) would best keeping in mind that there is more than 1 type of breast lift etc. and that 2 different surgeons may obtain similar results with different approaches. Then decide on a couple of safe surgeons, operating facilities and procedures and finally then compare prices between surgeons/procedures and the value of each i.e. what do you get for each dollar spent.
It is not unreasonable to see a physician before getting a price quote. No contractor would quote me a price for redoing my kitchen without seeing it and getting some idea of the work involved. Frequently more than a single surgical technique is available & the physician can only choose which would be best after a face to face examination. First the physician should talk to you. A physical examination follows & then a diagnosis of the problem followed by a plan of action. Then comes a cost quote. No one should want surgery from someone who mixes up this order.

Cost of Breast Lift and Tummy Tuck
Tummy Tuck $6500-$9000 (depending on whether it's a mini, full or floating abdominoplasty, and if liposuction is also performed)
These ranges are what you'd find in Toronto, Ontario, where I am located. They may be quite different in your city. A combination of procedures may slightly reduce the costs of each, especially when two or more are performed at the same time.
For a better idea of pricing, please check out the websites of your preferred surgeon or call around in your city. Having said that however, it's always best to find a surgeon you are comfortable with and trust instead of picking one based on how much they charge.
Breast Lift and Tummy Tuck Cost
The best thing to do is to see a couple of surgeons, get educated as to what you are a candidate for, consider your goals and then make a decision.
I hope that helps.
Costs of Tummy Tuck
1. Surgeons Fee. This is usually the greatest part of the overall cost and can vary immensly from location to location (just like the cost of living varies in each location) as well as in the same location, it can vary from surgeon to surgeon. Usually, a surgeon commanding a higher price is very experienced and has very good results reliably, and is very busy due to the above.
2. Anesthesia Fee. This can vary depending on if a board certified MD anesthesiologist is used, vs. a nurse anesthetist, vs. a non-certified nurse, vs. only local anesthesia (an awake procedure). Obviously, the further you go down the line, the cheaper the price. You do get what you pay for.
3. Facility Fee. This can vary if it is a a state/medicare certified facility, vs. the back of a doc's office.
4. Accessories. This includes things like a pain pump, Exparol injections (72 hour long lasting numbing), garments, tissue glues, etc. These are not necessary for a great result, just add to the comfort of a result.
5. Revision. Usually a revision such as dog ears or lowering the scar, or a seroma, is much less that the original surgery, but this depends entirely on what exactly is being done.
As with anything in life, buyer beware of risks of cutting corners in surgery.
Real Self has average costs of every operations in your location that you can peruse before seeing a surgeon, but keep in mind that the above quality can change from office to office. Choose a surgeon that you are very comfortable with and is board certified.

The cost of the procedures in my Albany, NY practice can vary depending on the extent:
-a tummy tuck alone is usually $7500
-a breast lift can range from $5500-8400 depending on the extent and whether or not implants are used.
-the combined procedure can range from $11000-13500 depending on the above factors.
These fees include the operating room, anesthesia, and everything associated with the procedure.
I would suggest a consultation with a plastic surgeon. At that time, the specific options for you could be discussed and fees quoted.
