What’s the Average Cost of a Mommy Makeover?

What Is The Average Cost Of A Mommy Makeover

The average cost of a mommy makeover is a difficult thing to estimate because of the nature of the procedure. Unlike a basic abdominal liposuction procedure or even a tummy tuck, a mommy makeover includes multiple procedures in one operation. 

Each procedure naturally comes with its own price tag. Furthermore, all patients require different levels of care and have different desired outcomes.

With that said, we can tell you that the average cost of a mommy makeover in Texas usually ranges from $9,000 to $20,000. It’s a wide range to be sure, but that should give you an idea of just how different each surgery can be.

Assessing the Cost of Each Mommy Makeover Procedure

Average Cost Of A Mommy Makeover In TexasBelow, we’ll outline the cost estimate for each major surgery that can be included in a mommy makeover*. 

These cost estimates are from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Each estimate is both an average and a generalized baseline price that will not take into account the nuances of your own plastic surgeon’s fee or “anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses”. 

Tummy Tuck Cost Estimate

The ASPS estimates the average cost of a tummy tuck to be approximately $6,200.

Nearly all mommy makeovers include a tummy tuck. Tummy tuck surgery involves a horizontal incision created low on the abdomen. This allows your surgeon to pull down loose skin from above this incision point and smooth the stomach entirely. 

An additional incision is often made inside the belly button. Excess skin is removed, the navel is repositioned, and the incisions are closed.

Liposuction Cost Estimate

The ASPS estimates the average cost of liposuction to be approximately $3,700.

Liposuction removes excess fat from the abdomen or anywhere on the body. It is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures year in and year out. 

The procedure first involves small incisions made in the target area (abdomen, hips, arms, etc.). A thin tube is then inserted to suction out excess fat, and finally, your surgeon closes up each incision and applies bandages.

Breast Lift Cost Estimate

The ASPS estimates the average cost of a breast lift to be approximately $5,000.

A breast lift is the best breast surgery for women who have a substantial amount of breast tissue but significant drooping. This is a common occurrence after having children and especially after breastfeeding. It can also happen with drastic weight fluctuations or simply because of aging.

Breast lift surgery requires an incision around the areola of each breast and one down the center-lower half of each breast. Excess tissue is removed, and the breasts are moved up on the chest wall. Sometimes, the nipples are relocated to create a more youthful look.

Breast Augmentation Cost Estimate

Average Cost Of A Mommy MakeoverThe ASPS estimates the average cost of breast augmentation (with breast implants) to be approximately $4,500.

Unlike a breast lift, breast augmentation surgery adds volume to the breasts (makes them larger) with implants. This surgery involves one incision in each breast. The breast implants are inserted into the incisions and correctly positioned, and then the incisions are closed.

A breast augmentation fat transfer involves augmenting (increasing the size of) the breasts using the patient’s own fat. Fat cells are removed with liposuction, processed, then reinjected into the breasts. A modest volume increase can be achieved with a breast augmentation fat transfer.

*Other procedures such as breast reduction, breast lift with implants, and Brazilian butt lift surgery can also be added to your mommy makeover. This is truly a surgery you can make your own. The above is simply a list of the most common surgeries chosen for most mommy makeover procedures.

FAQ: Planning for Your Mommy Makeover

Is mommy makeover financing available?

Yes, at Dr. Raj Plastic Surgery, we have financing options available to help you pay for your mommy makeover cost. These include CareCredit, Alphaeon Credit, and PatientFi. Feel free to talk to our staff about these options during your consultation visit.

Can I pay for plastic surgery with a credit card?

All plastic surgeons are different, but most providers will accept payment by credit card. Keep in mind that accompanying processing fees (and high interest rates) may make this method of payment more expensive.

If you plan to pay by credit card, it may be worth looking into a credit option that offers a lower interest rate, such as CareCredit.

Can you take care of yourself after mommy makeover?

The healing process following mommy makeover surgery is critical for ensuring your good health and optimizing your results long-term. For this reason, we absolutely recommend that you get some help from family or friends at home following your surgery.

First, you’ll definitely need to have a friend or family member take you home from the surgical facility. Mommy makeover surgery is an outpatient procedure. This means that you’ll be able to go home on the same day as your surgery. But again, you’ll need someone to take you.

Once home, if you have children or pets, you’ll need help caring for them as well. You cannot lift heavy objects (or animals or children) for a substantial period of time following surgery, nor should you overexert yourself. You’ll also want help making meals, picking up prescriptions, and caring for yourself in general.

I’m nervous about the risks of mommy makeover surgery. Is it safe?

Mommy makeover surgery — when performed by an experienced, well-trained, and board certified plastic surgeon — has a very high success rate. An exact estimate of the mommy makeover death rate (mortality rate) is difficult to calculate. However, it is rare that complications from this surgery arise.
