Are you considering a Mommy Makeover but wondering what you might expect to pay? In this blog, we discuss what is included in the cost of a Mommy Makeover and how you can benefit from combining procedures.

A Mommy Makeover is designed to target the areas of a woman’s body most commonly affected by pregnancy, breastfeeding, and the natural aging process. As such, it has the potential to fully transform your body. There’s just one problem: many patients are dismayed by the potential cost of such a dramatic cosmetic procedure. 

While concerns about Mommy Makeover costs are completely understandable, we want to debunk assumptions and help you comprehend all the costs, fees, and possibilities that come with your Mommy Makeover and why the pricing varies so widely from doctor to doctor. This blog will break down how the cost of a Mommy Makeover is calculated, what fees are included in the price of your procedures, and the benefits of combining procedures.

How Is the Cost of a Mommy Makeover Calculated?

For any surgery, the price of the procedure itself is only part of the total expense. Various factors influence your final cost, including anesthesia fees and hospital fees. However, one of the benefits of a Mommy Makeover is that you can choose to undergo several procedures at once, which offers advantages in terms of both cost and recovery time. While you’re still paying for each procedure included in your Mommy Makeover, you’re actually saving money in the long run by only paying the added fees once. Below, we list some of the ways the total cost of your Mommy Makeover is calculated. 

Your Geographic Location

Did you know that the area you live in figures into the cost of your Mommy Makeover? That’s because if the cost of living in the area is high, chances are that the price of surgery will be higher. The number of surgeons per capita also influences cost. In a city like Miami, there are an estimated 18 plastic surgeons per 100,000 residents, so you may have more cost options than in a city like Detroit, where there are fewer than two plastic surgeons per 100,000 residents. 

Your Plastic Surgeon’s Experience and Expertise

Selecting the right plastic surgeon is vital when you opt to undergo cosmetic surgery. You should always ensure the surgeon you choose is board certified and experienced in the types of procedures you wish to include in your Mommy Makeover. While some surgeons may cost less, keep in mind that your safety and the outcome of your procedure depend completely on your surgeon’s education, training, and expertise. Dr. Lo is known for his expertise in breast lifts, as well as breast augmentation

The Type and Number of Procedures in Your Mommy Makeover

A Mommy Makeover can include two or more procedures, and the cost will reflect that. For example, two procedures will likely cost less than three or more. However, the final price also depends on the complexity of your procedures. A tummy tuck typically costs more than liposuction, and a breast lift typically costs more than labiaplasty. Additionally, if you have significant excess skin that needs to be removed and damaged ab muscles, your tummy tuck may cost more than someone with less correction required. 

Surgical Facility Fees

Some surgeons have their own surgical facilities in their practice, while others choose to affiliate with a hospital. While having their own facility may seem more cost-effective, it isn’t always the case. Private facilities need nurses, anesthesiologists, and the equipment necessary for a successful surgery. Hospitals already have staff and equipment, so their fees may be less. However, the opposite can also be true, so doing your due diligence about the facility fees can help you understand the reason for the cost.

Pre-Operative Tests and Post-Operative Care

When you go in for your Mommy Makeover consultation, your surgeon will review your medical history and order blood tests to ascertain a better overall picture of your health prior to surgery. Some of the pre-and post-operative fees may include:

  • Consultations
  • Blood tests
  • Compression garments for recovery
  • Prescription medication
  • Follow-up appointments

Insurance Coverage

Because the majority of procedures included in a Mommy Makeover are considered elective, they are not typically covered by insurance. However, if any of the surgeries you are undergoing are deemed “medically necessary,” insurance may cover part or all of that procedure. Breast reductions are sometimes covered by insurance if you have a history of chronic back and neck pain, and tummy tuck or labiaplasty may be covered if you suffer from health issues related to excess skin. It never hurts to check with your insurance before surgery.
