Mommy makeover with fat transfer to the buttocks
Based on your photos you apper to be a good candidate for a momy makeover (breast augmentation and tummy tuck). As you stated, you can use the fat from the liposuction areas (lower abdomen, love handles, back,arms) and have this transferred to your buttock area. Perhaps if you gained 5-10 pounds prior to surgery you would have even more fat to donate to the buttock area which would give you a better outcome with regard to the buttock augmentation.
This surgery could last from 5-7 hours and you may need to stay in a hospital or aftercare facility overnight for observation. You should also have medical clearance from your primary care physician prior to surgery.I recommend consulting with several board certified plastic surgeons who are experienced with these techniques-especially fat transfer. The total cost can range anywhere from12-18,000.

You can consult with a few plastic surgeons to find one you are comfortable with. You can have the fat moved from the abdomen or thighs to the buttock area.
Breast surgery and abdominoplasty - mommy makeover
The mommy makeover term refers to body contouring procedures performed to reverse the effects of childbearing on the body. The photos corroborate your intention to have liposuction (I would suggest the abdomen, love handles and upper arms). The fat can easily be injected into the buttocks area as you wish.
The abdomen appears to be more an issue of lax muscle and some extra skin more than excess fat. Since the excess skin is not so great in that you do not have any folds of skin extending towards the back you have options with respect to the skin pattern removal that most other patients do not. You could go with the old fashioned elliptical skin incision or the longer skin incision to give more thigh tightening at the same time. The breasts would appear to be amenable to breast augmentation without lifting.
You would need to see a plastic surgeon face to face to go over all of the surgical options you have available. They cannot be fully ellucidated in this on line format. Once you know what they are you can then choose the procedure(s) you wish to have. It is a little more complicated than saying I want a tummy tuck then going to a surgeon for whom everyone gets the same tummy tuck. The cost then would depend on which procedure(s) are performed.

Mommy makeover is just a name used for sensationalism, it would include any thing that age and pregnancy have destroyed.
What is it for you depend on what is bothering you. Define what is it exactly you want to improve , prioratise the issues then discuss with your plastic surgeon.
The most important decision you make is two
one: what you want
Two: who you want
Then can all the procedures be done in one session or divide into two sessions, because patient safety is priority.
Looking at your pictures you can have all the procedures you listed, and I think with good planning anf execution you will have a great result and body.
Cost of Mommy Makeover
The total cost of a mommy makeover varies from city to city and what exactly is performed at the time of surgery. There is no exact definition of what a mommy makeover consists of, so an accurate cost estimate is not possible. In the Omaha, Nebraska area the costs will run between $10-15,000.

The price will depend on surgeon , and the country , because this varies at lot depending on the city or country where the surgery is going to be performed,

You are an excellent candidate for the brazilian butt lift or lipo and fat transfer to the buttocks. You could also have the breast augmentation and lift along with the tummy tuck. I would not perform all of these procedures at the same time but stage them at different time intervals allowing recovery to be much easier for you
Mommy Makeover With Brazilian Butt Augmentation - Is It Possible At Same Time?
You are young, apparently healthy, and you are to be congratulated for keeping your body in such good shape through your multiple pregnancies. The Mommy Makeover has multiple elements. Your pictures would indicate you are a good candidate for a full tummy tuck with correction of rectus diastasis, a breast augmentation with dual plane mastopexy, liposuction of upper back, mid back, hips, and inner thighs. This fat can then be transferred to your buttock region. This fat transfer should add no more than 30 minutes to the surgery, allowing your plastic surgeon to complete your entire operation in 6-7 hours.
I would postpone suctioning the fat from your upper arms as this won't give you very much extra fat for grafting and would add an extra hour to the surgery due to multiple redraping and repositioning. The cost in Hawaii for a Mommy Makeover with fat grafting to buttocks would be somewhere between $15,000 - $23,000.
Mommy Makeover surgery
Thank you for your question.
Cost will vary depending on many factors.... first of all it differs depending on if a board certified plastic surgeon is performing the surgery or not. Also, if the surgery is performed in a hospital based operating room vs. an office setting, if a board certified anesthesiologist is involved vs. a nurse (or sometimes performing procedures under local anesthesia), etc. Please be careful when doing your research to make sure your surgeon is properly trained and has experience in this procedure.
Please don't "shop around" for the cheapest price - look for a surgeon who has experience and can show you examples. Also, safety should be your TOP PRIORITY!
Mommy Makeovers also vary from patient to patient. Some patients need breast lifting as well as breast implants while others can just have breast implants. Some patients have liposuction performed in addition to tummy tuck procedure, some don't. From your photos, it looks like you are a good candidate for breast implants and tummy tuck procedure as well as fat transfer into the buttocks.
Mommy makeover combined with multiple other procedures
Thank you for providing pictures along with your questions. You are an excellent candidate for your mommy makeover. You might be able to do that and another procedure. However, you have quite a list for your makeover and it would be too much to attempt to do it all at one time. A frank discussion with your surgeon will be necessary to sort out your priorities and formulate a plan. Choose a qualified, Board certified Plastic surgeon.
All the best,
