The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates the average cost of a mommy makeover to be anywhere from $9,000 to $20,000.
Of course, this is only a rough estimate. In this article, we’ll be going over a more detailed breakdown of the average mommy makeover cost.
If you’re unfamiliar with this surgery, mommy makeovers help women who are done having children remove excess fat, trim loose skin, and enhance their breasts — among other improvements. The surgery can effectively help give a woman her “pre-baby body” back. In fact, the transformations can be absolutely phenomenal. You’ll never believe these mommy makeover before and afters.
If you’ve been thinking about a mommy makeover but have been hesitant to move forward because you are concerned about the cost, this article is for you.
How Much Does Mommy Makeover Surgery Cost?
As stated above, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that the average mommy makeover costs between $9,000 and $20,000. But again, this is just an estimated range.
In reality, every mommy makeover surgery is different, and thus, comes with a different price tag. Let’s break down some of the major factors influencing the cost of mommy makeovers.
Mommy Makeover Cost Factors
Location & Surgical Facility Fees
Where you have surgery will influence the cost of your mommy makeover. First, the actual facility will charge a fee for the use of their location. The ultimate cost here will depend on the extent of your surgery at that location and your use of their services, staff, and equipment.
The ultimate cost of your mommy makeover will also depend on the geographic location of the facility. For example, a mommy makeover performed in New York City will end up costing more than a mommy makeover performed in the middle of Minnesota or Arkansas. Cities have a higher cost of living over more rural areas, and this translates to a higher cost of medical services as well.
Surgeon & Anesthesiologist Fees
When you ultimately see the cost breakdown for your mommy makeover, you’ll immediately notice that your plastic surgeon and your anesthesiologist charge their own fees.
Let’s first talk about anesthesiologist fees. The anesthesiologist will charge a fee for their care, and the anesthesia and anesthesia-related equipment will also cost money.
Likewise, your surgeon will have their own fees. Naturally, these will be more extensive. Your surgeon is prepping for and performing the actual procedures, after all. You’ll also need to pay for all the pre-surgery appointments and postoperative follow-up appointments.
Related to your surgeon fees will be fees associated with pre-surgery exams and tests and compression garments, prescriptions, and other postoperative materials.
Mommy Makeover Procedure Cost Breakdown
Of course, the actual procedures themselves differ greatly in terms of cost as well. Let’s go over the average cost of each procedure in turn.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
The average cost of tummy tuck surgery is around $6,000.
One of the most sought-after surgeries for those who want mommy makeovers is the tummy tuck. This procedure removes unwanted loose skin from the tummy.
The surgery usually requires two incisions — one of which is on the lower abdomen below the bikini line. The loose skin is pulled down, and the excess is removed before the lower incision is closed up.
The average cost of liposuction is around $3,500.
Liposuction contours the body by removing fat pockets. If you have stubborn, hard-to-lose fat on your tummy, upper arms, flanks, or elsewhere, liposuction can help. This is a common issue for moms — especially around the midsection.
The average cost of breast augmentation surgery is around $4,000.
Breast augmentation is a surgery that enlarges the breasts by increasing their volume with implants. Patients can choose between silicone and saline implants.
There are many different sizes and shapes to choose from. The cost of breast augmentation will be influenced by the type of implants you choose as some cost more than others.
The average cost of a breast lift is around $5,000.
When a woman has enough volume with her current breast tissue but struggles with drooping breasts, a breast lift is often recommended. This procedure perks up the breasts by lifting them and sometimes augmenting the areolas and nipples, when necessary.
