Mommy Makeover Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery
A mommy makeover combines two or more breast and/or body plastic surgery procedures that are customized to make women feel more comfortable with their bodies post-childbirth, once they are finished having children.
The type of mommy makeover chosen depends entirely on the goals of the individual. Some may want a flatter stomach and a more defined, contoured waistline. Others may find that their breasts have lost volume and become more lax (saggy), and they are unable to lose the "pooch" around their stomach. Because every woman is unique, so are their needs and therefore, their treatment plan.
What Plastic Surgery Procedures May Be Included in a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeovers combine 2-3 different procedures, generally performed together, in order to achieve the desired result. These may include:
- Tummy tucks (abdominoplasty)
- Liposuction of the upper/lower abdomen
- Liposuction of the flanks/sides/waist
- Liposuction of the lower back
- A combination of several liposuction areas of the midsection often referred to as "lipo 360" or circumferential liposuction
- Breast lifts (mastopexy)
- Breast augmentation (breast implants)
- Combined mastopexy with augmentation
- Thigh liposuction
- Thigh lifts
- Arm lifts
- CoolSculpting (non-surgical)
Because pregnancy affects every woman's body differently, the type of plastic surgeries they select in order to be happy with their post-baby body will differ, too.
Can Plus-Size or Higher-BMI Candidates Qualify for a Mommy Makeover?
Yes, higher-BMI candidates can qualify for a mommy makeover, a type of plus-size plastic surgery. The most important aspect of our surgeons' assessment is the health of the patient. If patients are non-smokers, understand the recovery and risks involved with any type of major surgery, and can receive medical clearance from their primary care physician, then they likely meet most of qualification to undergo a plus-size mommy makeover. This may include plus-size tummy tucks and large-volume liposuction, as well as breast reductions, lifts or implants.
However, the only way to know for sure is to meet with Dr. Abboushi or Dr. Singh. Please also be aware that higher-BMI candidates may also need to undergo some surgeries separately if more than one or two are desired, and an overnight hospital stay is generally required as well.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover depends completely on which surgical procedures are selected, and high BMI patients who require greater quantities of fat removal will find that reflected in the pricing as well. As a starting point, a patient with an average BMI who elects to undergo a mommy makeover consisting of a tummy tuck with abdominal liposuction and a breast lift can expect to pay, on average, between $22K-$25K, inclusive of all pre-operative, surgical, hospital, and post-operative visit fees. However the only way to know the cost for certain is to schedule a consult with our doctors, who will then be able to give an accurate assessment.
Additionally, many plastic surgery financing options are available for patients, including those from CareCredit, Alphaeon, and United Medical Credit.
