About the Mommy Makeover and Costs
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures to bring a woman’s body back to the way she looked prior to pregnancy. Most commonly some variation of a #TummyTuck and #BreastSurgery are performed. Additional procedures can include liposuction, umbilical hernia repair. The most common #breastprocedures include #mastopexy or #breastlift, #breastaugmentation, or #breastreduction.
The costs of a #Mommy Makeover will depend on several factors. Such include the geographic location, the skill and experience of the surgeon, and operating room and anesthesia fees. However, many payments plans exist for cosmetic procedures. Ask your surgeon's office about finance programs and lenders they may recommend as well as personal loans available through financial institutions.
Your procedures should be performed by a #PlasticSurgeon who is board-certified and has a great deal of experience specializing in cosmetic #surgery. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire, and, without the need for a revision surgery. It is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.
Body contouring post weight loss

Nice job on the weight loss
Usually, major weight loss can cause saggy skin, particularly around the mid-section. The breasts also tend to sag. Normally, these issues would be corrected with a tummy tuck and breast lift. The breast lift can be done at the same time as breast augmentation if you’d like to have larger breasts as well. Fat transfer, using your own fat, can be done to correct minor contour irregularities, however in the case of saggy skin following weight loss, this method is usually insufficient to fully address the sagging.

What an effort!
That's fantastic - to loose 150lbs through hard work and determination! You look great :-)
With regards to fat transfer - because you are using your own fat - there is no foreign body put into your breasts.
Fat is removed from an area of the body where it is in excess and transferred to an area that requires restoration or augmentation, this is designed to improve volume and change proportion and in most cases offers long lasting results. Breast enlargement with fat transfer is as an alternative to implants and may be used to balance cases of asymmetrical breasts (uneven breasts) or restore contours in cases of unevenness.
However do be aware that this may require more than one procedure to get the desired result, so take this into account when doing your sums. Breast Augmentation may be a better option and will be long lasting and one price.
All the best with your journey!

What to do?
About your breast, I do not recommend fat transfer to breasts because there are many studies that state, fat transfer to breasts can cause cancer in the future, I suggest breast augmentation with implants to increase the size of your breasts
Patient should have consultations with a Plastic Surgeon that is board certified and discuss this combination and have their questions answered by a well trained professional. Good luck :)
