how much does a mommy makeover cost?

You're ready to invest in yourself with a total body transformation. Congratulations! Now, it's time to plan financially. When it comes to the cost of a mommy makeover, a few factors come into play. Knowing what may affect your cost and understanding the financial resources available to you is a great place to start your research.

Read on to learn more about mommy makeover pricing and how you can plan for the cost of your transformation.

What is the cost of a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover typically costs about $20,000 and upward. This price includes:

  • Surgeon's fee
  • Operating room fees
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Surgical garments worn during recovery
  • An overnight stay (usually required after any abdominal surgery for your safety and comfort)

Because each mommy makeover is customized, it's important for your plastic surgeon to consult with you personally before estimating a price. When you have a consultation, your surgeon will discuss your concerns and goals in depth as you work together to create a custom surgical plan. Your surgeon will then give you a personalized price estimate so you know exactly what to expect in terms of pricing.

What affects the cost of a mommy makeover?

The main factor that affects the price of a mommy makeover is which procedures are included. While each procedure is customized, most mommy makeovers address the stomach and breasts through two or more of these procedures:

The more procedures you include, the higher your price will be.

A quick note: While these procedures address many post-pregnancy concerns, you don't have to be a mommy to get a mommy makeover. Learn more in this blog post.

However, one important thing to keep in mind is that having multiple procedures done within the same surgery is typically more cost-effective than having them done separately because you'll only pay one set of operating room and anesthesia fees. That's not to mention the added downtime you'll eliminate by recovering from multiple procedures at the same time.

Will insurance cover a mommy makeover?

Because mommy makeovers are elective cosmetic procedures, they are not covered by insurance. However, many practices have options for financing your surgery. You can apply for these online in just minutes to make your transformation more attainable.

How to make the most of your investment in yourself

A mommy makeover has the power to transform more than just the way you look – it can transform the way you feel, too. If you decide to invest in your confidence with a mommy makeover, here are a few tips for making the most of your experience:

Choose a surgeon with skill...

For the best results, shop based on expertise and credentials, not price. Look for a board-certified plastic surgeon with dedicated experience in mommy makeovers.

...and a surgeon with integrity

Choose a surgeon who will customize your procedure based on your goals rather than pressuring you into extra procedures you do not need.

Make sure you're ready for recovery

Following recovery instructions and taking the necessary time to rest is essential for enjoying the best and longest-lasting results.

Practice all-around wellness

Couple your body makeover with a self-care makeover. Focus on your overall health and confidence to love the skin you're in even more.
