Cost for an abdominoplasty / Breast augmentation / BBL
There is no way to give you an accurate estimate for an abdominoplasty, breast augmentation and BBL. In general you can expect
- Breast augmenation $4,500 to $6,000
- Abdominoplasty approximately $6,000
- BBL $5,000
- All cost are estimates and will be different for each individual depending upon the area of the country you live, the extent of your surgery and operative time estimate
Mommy makeover surgery.
Thank you for your recent question. A tummy tuck could possibly help you greatly. This procedure would give you solid abdominal supprt as well as a better shape. It is possible to do a breast augmentation at the same time, but I would caution you to do anything else at the same time because of the added time that would have to be spent for the surgery.
A full examination would be helpful before a discussion of the cost of this surgery could be made. I perform this combination very often in my practice, however.
Good luck to you.

Costs of Surgery
In considering the cost of a Tummy Tuck, you should look at the components of the cost:
1. Surgeons Fee. This is usually the greatest part of the overall cost and can vary immensly from location to location (just like the cost of living varies in each location) as well as in the same location, it can vary from surgeon to surgeon. Usually, a surgeon commanding a higher price is very experienced and has very good results reliably, and is very busy due to the above. This also depends on if a circumferential, tummy tuck, extended tummy tuck, full tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, and skin only tummy tuck is performed. These are usually less expensive in decreasing order.
2. Anesthesia Fee. This can vary depending on if a board certified MD anesthesiologist is used, vs. a nurse anesthetist, vs. a non-certified nurse, vs. only local anesthesia (an awake procedure). Obviously, the further you go down the line, the cheaper the price. You do get what you pay for.
3. Facility Fee. This can vary if it is a a state/medicare certified facility, vs. the back of a doc's office.
4. Accessories. This includes things like a pain pump, Exparol injections (72 hour long lasting numbing), garments, tissue glues, etc. These are not necessary for a great result, just add to the comfort of a result.
5. Revision. Usually a revision such as dog ears or lowering the scar, or a seroma, is much less that the original surgery, but this depends entirely on what exactly is being done.
6. Add on surgeries are usually discounted, as in a mommy makeover.
7. Insurance. If an insurance based surgery, such as a hernia repair is done at the same time, the tummy tuck may be discounted.
As with anything in life, buyer beware of risks of cutting corners in surgery.
Real Self has average costs of every operations in your location that you can peruse before seeing a surgeon, but keep in mind that the above quality can change from office to office. Choose a surgeon that you are very comfortable with and is board certified.

Brazillian But and Tummy tuck and breast augmentation at same time
The cost varies by geography, expertise and how you plan to combine procedures. More importantly, I would advise you not to combine the brazillian butt lift with the tummy tuck. The main reason is the issue of safety and being under anesthesia for a long period of time. Second, is the positioning. In a Brazillian butt lift you cannot place any pressure on you butt (thus not able to sit for a few weeks). You can lay on your side. Last in a tummy tuck and breast augmentation you have you lay in a beach chair position, flexed at the hips. So the only way is to lay on your side in fetal position. The cost individual is ($8-12) for the brazillian butt lift, Tummy tuck 6-8K, and breast augmentation with silicone (6-7K) I would not recommend you do all of the procedures in a combined fashion. Make sure you you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon.
