Pregnancy and motherhood can take a huge toll on a woman’s body, so it’s no wonder the mommy makeover has become one of the most searched for and requested plastic surgeries available. A mommy makeover typically involves a combination of plastic surgery procedures that address a woman’s post-pregnancy body issues, including effects from breastfeeding.
While each mommy makeover procedure is unique to your specific circumstances and goals, it often includes:
-Breast enhancement – usually an augmentation, a lift, or both
-Abdominal contouring – often a Tummy Tuck with liposuction
Each of these procedures will vary, depending on the complexity of your needs as well as your intended results. Some other procedures that can be performed during a mommy makeover include breast reductions, stretch mark removal, and labiaplasty.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average mommy makeover can cost anywhere from $9,000 to $20,000. While these numbers greatly change depending on geographic location, clinic fees, anesthesia costs, and post-surgery fees, there are some averages associated with the surgeries themselves to give you an idea.
Breast augmentation with lift
Average cost: $8,500
One of the most common procedures during a mommy makeover is a breast lift and augmentation. Lifting the breasts can dramatically turn back the clock, returning breasts to a higher position on the chest. Oftentimes, a breast augmentation goes along with a lift to counter the effects of breastfeeding as well as changing shape during pregnancy.
Average cost: $7500
An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is one of the other most sought-after procedures for postpartum women as it gets rid of excess skin and tightens up the abdominal wall. The surgeon may also be able to reposition your navel and remove some or all of the stretch marks on your stomach.
Average cost: $5500
Liposuction reduces stubborn pockets of fat that have not responded to diet or exercise. Typically during a mommy makeover, liposuction is performed as more of a finishing touch to the entire procedure, providing a slimmer appearance and overall more contoured look.
