Estimated Costs for a Mommy Makeover and Seeking a Board-Certified Surgeon

The 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. Approximate #costs can be found here on the Real Self website, Surgery.org, or PlasticSurgery.org. Also, the costs are contingent on the specific #procedures being combined in the operation. Such will be discussed in greater length during your one-on-one consultation. Also, such #combined operations are often performed with our Gynecology colleagues. Tubal ligation is a common post pregnancy procedure which is done at the time of many of the surgeries included with Mommy Makeovers. Therefore, if you require a gynecologic operation or study (laparoscopy) and are considering a plastic surgery procedure, discuss these issues with your doctor. Combining these procedures decreases anesthetics, costs, and recovery time. 

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.

Mommy makeover costs

The cost of surgery can vary tremendously. I am concerned when people shop for a price for a procedure   You can always find a cheap surgery from a cheap surgeon.  Is that what you really want.  Do some homework in your area. Chose the best and figure out the finances after.

Mommy Makeover

You are proceeding correctly in attempting to lose weight. For optimal results, you will want to approach your target weight. Surgical fees will vary widely so your budget may be reasonable in some parts of the country such as South Florida but not necessarily where you live. Moreover, you may be eligible for insurance coverage of the breast reduction. Consult with 3 - 4 experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons to understand your options.

It is good that you are working on loosing wight and preparing yourself for surgery. As for the surgery costs you have to contact your local plastic surgeons and find out what are the rated. Although money is a limiting factor, you should base your choice of plastic surgeon on the quality of his/ her the work.

Mommy Makeover Surgery and Cost?

Thank you for the question. You are doing the right thing by achieving a long-term stable weight prior to undergoing surgery. Doing so will improve your chances of achieving the results are looking for and minimize the chances that further surgery will be necessary (in the event of weight loss after surgery).

It will be up to you to do your due diligence in the process of plastic surgeon selection. 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.

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 helps.

You get what you pay for.

It sounds like you need some type of abdominal contouring with liposuction and panniculectomy, combined with a breast reduction. The cost will vary by region, but it will be difficult to find a board certified and experienced plastic surgeon who will do one of these procedures for $9000, yet alone BOTH.  You might be eligible for insurance coverage of your breast reduction if you really are a J cup. This may be an option for you. Otherwise, you may need to save more money or attempt more weight loss on your own. My advice...if you find a surgeon who will do both procedures for $9000, be very very careful because you often get what you pay for.
