Maybe you’ve been daydreaming about a mommy makeover, flipping through before-and-after photos, and imagining your own transformation. But let’s face it, the cost is a significant factor in turning this dream into reality. This blog post is dedicated to answering that burning question: How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Why Costs Vary: The Custom Nature of a Mommy Makeover
When considering a mommy makeover, it’s important to remember that each procedure is as unique as the individual undergoing the procedure. You’re not picking a one-size-fits-all package off a shelf; you’re working with a surgeon to tailor a set of procedures specifically for you. This customization allows you to achieve your unique aesthetic goals and that is why costs vary so widely.
Common Mommy Makeover Procedures and Their Benefits
When we talk about a mommy makeover, we’re actually referring to a suite of procedures tailored to meet the specific needs and goals of each patient. Ideal candidates are close to their goal weight but want to fine-tune particular areas to achieve a more harmonious, rejuvenated look.
Here are the most commonly included treatments and their benefits:
- Breast augmentation: Breast augmentation aims to restore lost volume or achieve a fuller bust. A breast lift, performed concurrently, can provide beautiful results—elevating the breast tissue, correcting sagging, and offering a more youthful contour.
- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): This procedure targets the midsection, removing excess skin and tightening weakened or separated abdominal muscles. For many moms, this effectively addresses the “mommy pooch” that diet and exercise alone can’t eliminate.
- Liposuction: While a tummy tuck removes skin and tightens muscles, liposuction eliminates stubborn fat deposits from common “problem” areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and arms for a more toned appearance.
- Brazilian Butt Lift: Though not as common in mommy makeovers as the other procedures, the Brazilian butt lift is gaining popularity. The procedure aims to augment and shape the buttocks by transferring fat from other parts of the body, offering a more balanced and youthful silhouette.
Understanding the Financial Side of Your Mommy Makeover Choices
To give you a clearer picture of your potential investment, let’s look at cost ranges in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and other factors influencing price.
Average Cost of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation costs can range from $6,500 to $7,500. The choice between saline and silicone gel implants can nudge that number up or down. Opting for anatomically shaped “gummy bear” implants will generally be on the higher end of the price spectrum. Adding a breast lift to the procedure will also increase the overall cost.
Average Cost of Tummy Tuck
Generally, you can expect to pay between $13,000 to $17,000 for a tummy tuck. The complexity of your individual procedure could place you anywhere within this range.
Average Cost of Liposuction
For each treatment area you wish to target with liposuction, you’re looking at a price range of about $3,500 to $4,500.
Cost of Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift starts at $17,000 and can go up to about $19,000. Since the procedure includes liposuction to harvest fat, the number of treatment areas can also impact the final price tag.
Surgeon’s Expertise and Consultation Fees
At Advanced Plastic Surgery Institute, you’re not just paying for a procedure; you’re paying for the years of specialized training and experience required to make your aesthetic dreams a reality.
The initial consultation fee is $250, which will be applied to your overall surgery costs should you choose to proceed.
Additional Costs to Consider
Anesthesia: The costs associated with anesthesia aren’t typically part of the quoted procedure costs and can vary depending on the duration and type of anesthesia used.
Surgery facility costs: Similarly, operating room expenses are often separate and can fluctuate based on various factors, including the time spent in the surgical suite.
Does Insurance Cover Mommy Makeovers?
Insurance typically doesn’t cover elective cosmetic surgeries such as a mommy makeover.
