Mommy makeover price can vary

First off, make sure you go to a board certified plastic surgeon for any plastic surgery. There are many cosmetic surgeons who may not be trained in plastic surgery who still can offer you surgery. Second, don't let price drive you to have surgery from a surgeon with whom you are not comfortable with. Third, you need to decide between breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, mini-tummy tuck, full tummy tuck, and body lift procedures.

In Columbus, Ohio where I practice, the total price (surgeon's fees, anesthesia fees and facility fees) for a mommy makeover can range between $6000 and $14000.

Mommy makeover cost

Mommy makeovers often combine some form of breast surgery and body contouring surgery.  Breast augmentation or lifts may vary in price from $4-8K depending on the complexity of the surgery.  A body procedure such as a tummy tuck or liposuction may be another $4-9K depending on the overall duration and complexity of the procedure.  A consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon will help you determine the best surgical plan for your breasts and body.  The mommy makeover can save you money when these procedures are done at the same time, as the each component of the price may be cheaper than if two procedures were done separately (hospital fees, anesthesia fees and surgeon's fee).  Be careful not to pack too many procedures in one setting, however.  The longer the surgery duration, the higher the complication rates for things like deep vein thrombosis.   Good luck.

How much does a mommy makeover cost?

Individually, the average surgeon's fee are reported each year by ASPS (The American Society of Plastic Surgeons).   Operating room fees and anesthesia fees are added on to this cost. 
If you look at the average cost per procedure without any discounts for multiple procedures, here are the 2013 national averages for the surgeon's fee:

breast augmentation: $3678
breast lift: $4207
abdominoplasty:  $5217
liposuction: $2866

Most plastic surgeons will offer a reduced price when the procedures are packaged together.   Other factors that the final price depend on are type of implant (saline or silicone) and variables such as overnight stay in an aftercare facility, preoperative labs, mammograms or medical clearance if required.

In general, a mommy makeover with an augmentation mastopexy (lift with implants), tummy tuck and limited waist liposuction can run in the range of $8000 - $15000 +  all inclusive.

Cost with Mommy Makeover

The 'mommy makeover' represents a combined surgical approach to address many of the common anatomic changes associated with childbirth and breastfeeding. This typically involves some sort of body contouring procedure (e.g. liposuction, abdominoplasty) combined with some sort of breast enhancement procedure (e.g. breast lift or augmentation). 

Because there are so many options, costs vary widely. For example, mild changes that only require liposuction of a few areas and an augmentation can be in the range of $7000-9000, but if you require a full abdominoplasty, liposuction, and breast lift with augmentation, the price can quickly get into the $15,000+ range.

For this and other reasons, I recommend obtaining and individualized quote from a plastic surgeon, as well as to gain more information about the procedure(s) involved.

Good luck!

Cost of a Mommy Makeover with or without breast augmentation. Connecticut

Although costs can vary across geographical regions, in general a Mommy Makeover range is $11,000 to about $18,000.  Cost usually include;  doctors fee, implants (if needed) hospital or operating room fee and anesthesia fee and all your follow up appointments. It depends on what type of tummy tuck and lift required to achieve a natural balanced form. In some cases liposuction is added to sculpted the abdomen and soften the final look.

Mommy makeover cost

Cost is such a tricky thing.

I strongly recommend people do not make decisions based on cost. I think you should meet a few plastic surgeons who are well respected in your area. See what they recommend as far as what type of surgery and costs will be. Cost is not directly related to skill- I have seen wonderful surgeons who don't charge much, and horrible surgeons who do. But each part of the country tends to have an average cost for surgery.

Most of us are affiliated with payment programs which can space the payments out.

Find out what your surgeon's policy is on fees- are all the office visits covered? what happens if there is a complication? If flying out of state, consider the cost of air travel, hotel, and the cost if you have to go back for any kind of complication. Also, do you meet with the surgeon, or do you primarily meet with the nurse or patient coordinator? How frequent are the follow ups?

There is no standard mommy makeover surgery, cost varies with the length of time in the OR, saline implants and gel implants cost different amounts, a lift without an implant is cheaper than one with an implant as the surgery is shorter and you don't have to buy an implant.

Again, beware of cost. I would recommend you don't shop for the cheapest person on the block: non plastic surgeons and less experienced younger surgeons likely charge less.

Cost depends on what the mommy wants!

Hello, and thanks for your question. This is a lot of confusion about a "mommy makeover," because it is not simply one single procedure or one definite set of procedures. A mommy makeover aims to address the changes that have occurred to an individual woman's body post pregnancy. Very frequently, pregnancy will cause lots of laxity in the abdominal wall which may be addressed an abdominoplasty, or the effects of breast feeding may cause the breasts to sag which can be helped with a breast lift or augmentation. 

However! Every woman's body will respond differently to pregnancy, and the surgeries involved can vary a lot. One woman may feel that she only really needs a tummy tuck, or perhaps another woman wouldn't be satisfied unless she underwent a tummy tuck, breast lift, vaginal rejuvenation, and liposuction. The combination of procedures in a mommy makeover is ultimately up to the individual patient, and it's important to keep in mind that every patient's body will be different following pregnancy. 

That said, the cost of the procedure can range from around $6000 to upwards of $18000, depending on your area, the procedures involved, and your surgeon. I hope this answers your question, and good luck!

Mommy makeover cost

Surgical costs will vary quite widely with geography.  Adding an augmentation to a breast lift will typically add the cost of the implants - around $1000 to $1500 - plus a varying amount for the increase in complexity of the operation.  In the NYC area, tummy tuck plus a breast procedure of some kind will typically run $12k to $20k, with a reputable board certified plastic surgeon.

There is usually a cost-saving when doing multiple procedures together.

In my practice, the cost of breast augmentation using cohesive gel implants is about $8000 including facility and anesthesia, and implants.

The cost for mastopexy alone is about $7000.

If both are done together it would be about 13,000, a savings of about $2000.

The reason for the savings is that we give a discount for multiple procedures, and the facility and anesthesia fees are higher for the first hour than for subsequent hours.

Good luck.
