Mommy makeover surgery is a popular way for women to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies. This suite of procedures combines many body contouring and shaping treatments such as liposuction, breast augmentation, and more.
Our plastic surgery practice here in Austin, Texas, is always honored to help patients look their best. Part of that commitment to our patients includes ensuring you have the information you need for a positive and successful experience. If you have been considering a mommy makeover, here are 5 important things to know.
What is included in a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover typically includes a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a breast enhancement procedure. Breast augmentation is a popular option for adding volume, whereas a breast lift makes breasts youthfully perky.
Because every woman is unique, our doctors take the time to decide which combination of procedures will create the best results. There is no set combination of procedures for a mommy makeover. In the end, you and your surgeon get to decide how many treatments you wish to undertake.
What does a mommy makeover cost?
The price of a mommy makeover is around $17,000 to $23,000. The final price depends on the procedures you select and the number of areas you wish to have treated.
Many women choose mommy makeover surgery because it’s more cost-effective to combine surgeries. During your private consultation, your doctor will analyze your trouble spots and give you a specific, personalized quote.
How do you know if you qualify for a mommy makeover?
The best candidates for mommy makeover surgery are healthy women who want to contour multiple areas of the body. You should wait at least 6 months after giving birth before undergoing surgery. We strongly recommend waiting to have a mommy makeover until you are finished having children so you can enjoy long-lasting, beautiful results.
How long is mommy makeover recovery?
Most women can return to work and daily life around 2 to 4 weeks after surgery. Soreness, swelling, and bruising will develop after the procedure, but these side effects will fade with time. Take slow walks and incorporate gentle movement into your recovery to promote healthy blood flow. The timeline for your final results will depend on the procedures you have chosen, but you can expect to see your final look after 3 to 6 months.
Will insurance pay for a mommy makeover?
Most insurance companies won’t cover the cost of a mommy makeover as it is an elective surgery. However, your insurance may cover breast reduction surgery if you can prove your breasts are causing health problems. Our practice also offers many financing options for qualified patients. You can apply online at CareCredit to find out more.
