As far as cost, what does it run for a mommy makeover?

Doctor Answers 10


Hello. The costs for Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty will vary depending on what region of the US you live in and the physician doing the surgery. The cost can usually be broken down in to the surgical fee, the operating room fee, and the anesthesia fee. As the OR and anesthesia often charge by the hour, these fees can vary depending on how long it takes to do the procedure. Someone very petite with no fat (just loose skin) will take less time than someone larger. Total costs in the Bay Area probably range from under 10K to close to 15K or 20K. Depending on your insurance plan, repair of a hernia at the same time may be covered as well as some or all of the OR and anesthesia costs. This can vary widely. Hope this answers your question. See a board certified plastic surgeon in your area with an expertise in body contouring and tummy tucks for more individualized information. Good luck!

Thank you for your question.  The simple answer is that it depends.  The mommy makeover can involve several different procedures, each of which takes a different amount of time depending on the specific case the surgeon's pace.  To determine what a mommy makeover would cost you, please be seen in person by a board certified plastic surgeon who can discuss pricing for you specifically after a physical evaluation.

As far as cost..............

mommy makeover is a generic term that can cover many different procedures. The cost of those procedurals will depend on how many procedures you will be having at one time and this can only be determined after an examination from the board-certified plastic surgeon.

Many Plastic Surgeons will have their approximate prices listed on their website for your convenience. A combination of procedures such as Mommy Makeover could vary somewhat from person to person depending on items like liposuction, type of tummy tuck and breast lift/implants. Your Plastic Surgeon will provide you with a personalised surgical qyuote after you decide what you would like to proceed with.

As far as cost, what does it run for a mommy makeover?

The term Mommy Makeover is a non specific term used for combining some type of surgical improvement to breasts and tummy after one or more pregnancies. The price will vary somewhat depending on the specific procedures performed. For a better approximation you can call our office and one of the staff can ask you a few questions and then give you a good price estimate. It takes an exam however to know exactly.

Mommy makeover costs

Mommy makeovers can consist of many different combinations of breast and tummy procedures so costs vary. Also all doctors have their own fee schedule. 

Cost for Mommy Makeover

The cost for a mommy makeover will vary significantly. Part of the cost will be based on the experience, expertise and education of your plastic surgeon. The cost is also based on the hard costs that go along with a surgery. Some surgeons cut costs by cutting corners. Safety precautions cost money. An board-certified MD anesthesiologist is more expensive than a non MD anesthesia provider. Experienced, well trained surgical staff members also cost money. Hospital operating room grade sterilization equipment, and back up for that equipment..... You get the idea.  

The highest priced plastic surgeon isn't necessarily the best, or the safest, but you can be sure that very low prices mean cutting corners somewhere.

When selecting a plastic surgeon to perform a mommy makeover, look closely at belly buttons, do they look natural? The the woman's waist look smaller? Do the breasts look natural?  It is the details that make the difference.

As far as cost, what does it run for a mommy makeover?

Costs for a mommy makeover can vary significantly, depending on a variety of factors including the complexity of the tummy tuck procedure and type of breast procedure involved (breast augmentation, lift and/or reduction).  In general, costs can run from $10,000 to over $20,000, again depending on the size, time, and complexity of the procedures.  Many plastic surgery practices, including our own, offer free consultations in which an exact cost for your procedure could be determined.  I agree with Dr. Pousti,  concentrate on choosing your surgeon based on their qualifications and your comfort in working with him/her.  Do not let cost alone be the determining factor.  Best wishes, Dr. Lepore.

As far as cost, what does it run for a mommy makeover?

Thanks for the question. When it comes to costs of surgery, there may be many “variables” involved. The specific surgeon's credentials/experience level (or lack thereof), the specific geographic area you are looking at, the different operations available, the location of the procedure (quality of surgery facility), type/quality of anesthesia provider, type of breast implants… are some of the potential variables involved. You will find some average costs of surgery on this website and on individual plastic surgeons' websites as well. In regards to outcome of the planned procedure, more important than costs of the procedures will be careful selection of your plastic surgeon. I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.

Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery. Ask to SEE lots of examples of their work AND preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done.

Be very careful with your decision-making. You will find, while doing your due diligence, that there are many different “specialties” who will offer their services to you; again, I strongly recommend you concentrate on surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
 I would also suggest that you do not base your selection of plastic surgeon primarily on costs of surgery; keep in mind that revisionary surgery may be more costly in many ways.

I hope this, and the attached link, helps. Best wishes.

Mommy makeover cost

The cost of a mommy makeover varies considerably depending on which procedures you are interested in. Most women will have a breast augmentation and a tummy tuck at the least. You can expect to pay anywhere from 10,000-15,000. This can vary depending on your choice of implant or choice of other procedures. I would consult with a few plastic surgeons in person to determine which procedure(s) is best suited for you.
