Women considering elective surgery to address physical changes after having children—or due to the natural aging process—often ask about combining body contouring and breast enhancement procedures. Referred to as mommy makeover, this combination surgery varies considerably depending on the specific procedures I perform and the extent of the correction needed. This leaves many women wondering how much does a mommy makeover cost?

During consultations with women considering a mommy makeover, we discuss potential options and the benefits of including more than one procedure during a single operation. The cost of the operation is then estimated based on your personalized treatment plan.

In this blog post, I’ll address common questions about mommy makeover cost and explain why a combination procedure is a smart financial decision for the right patients.

Is it Safe to Combine Procedures?

This is a question we address with each patient because patient safety is our priority. A safe, effective surgery that produces reliable results guides every decision before and during the operation. If I don’t believe we can safely address all of a patient’s concerns in one surgery, I’ll recommend planning 2 smaller operations.

How Does Combining Procedures Affect Cost?

Certain fees for cosmetic surgery, such as facility and anesthesia fees, may be reduced by combining multiple procedures during one operation. Besides costs, another benefit of a mommy makeover is that patients only have to plan for one anesthesia and recovery period. However, in some cases, it’s advisable to recover after two medium operations rather than have a single significant recovery process. I’ll assess your needs and develop a treatment plan that prioritizes your safety and results.

Does a Mommy Makeover Always Include a Tummy Tuck?

The abdominal area is a primary focus of a mommy makeover procedure. However, the specifics of the procedure can vary quite a bit from patient to patient. I may perform a straightforward tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) with liposuction limited to the front of the body, or I may extend the procedure to the hip area or include a buttock lift. Some patients also need a pubic lift as well. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all mommy makeover.

Can I Combine a Breast Lift with Breast Implants?

Yes, this is a very common element of mommy makeover surgery. Many women who choose breast lift with breast augmentation want to restore the youthful shape of their breasts and regain the volume that is lost after having children and breastfeeding. Other women may have overly large breasts post-pregnancy and want breast reduction surgery.

Is Mommy Makeover Surgery Only For Moms?

Not at all. Physical changes occur to women’s bodies for several reasons, including aging and fluctuating weight, in addition to post-pregnancy issues. Hormonal changes associated with menopause can also trigger physical conditions that you may want to address through a combination of nonsurgical or surgical treatments.

Can a Mommy Makeover Include Nonsurgical Treatments?

Absolutely! Some patients have concerns that can be addressed without surgery. For example, we might combine CoolSculpting® fat reduction treatments with ThermiVa® vaginal rejuvenation procedures to deal with post-partum changes. Some women find that their skin changes after having children and need a revised skincare routine.

As you can see, mommy makeover encompasses a wide range of surgical and nonsurgical procedures, including brachioplasty, thigh lifts, and even facial rejuvenation. The cost of your surgery will depend on which procedures are performed and whether the surgeries need to be spaced out for safety.
