Hormonal imbalances from pregnancy, childbearing, and nursing can all have a negative impact on our overall figure. Significant changes in weight can stretch our skin beyond recognition and leave us with pockets of fat that are unresponsive to diet or exercise. There’s no wonder many women are turning to cosmetic procedures to restore their natural, pre-motherhood contours.
The price you’ll pay for your Mommy Makeover will vary greatly based on the procedures you’ve chosen to enlist. While some women are unhappy with the breasts motherhood has given them, other women would like to address bothersome bulges on the belly, hips, or thighs. A Mommy Makeover can consist of any number of surgical or non-surgical procedures. However, the most popular is a trio consisting of a breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction.
Combining procedures not only allows you to undergo a single recovery period, but it can also be cost-effective. Having multiple procedures done at once cuts down on facility fee costs, expensive medical exams, and pricey prescription medications.
Let’s take a closer look at a few of the most common Mommy Makeover procedures to give you a starting point as far as pricing goes. Most women find the cost of their procedure to be well-worth their newfound confidence and physique.
A breast lift restores a perkier, more youthful appearance to your breasts. During the procedure, loose or sagging skin can be addressed, underlying muscles can be tightened, and the nipple is often placed higher on the breast. The average price you can expect to pay is around $4,636 for a breast lift alone.
A flatter tummy and slimmer waistline can be achieved with the help of a tummy tuck. Stretch marks below the belly button can also be smoothed. Tummy tuck procedures provide dramatic results and a better fit for clothing. Your abdominoplasty may cost $5798 more or less.
Liposuction has been helping women achieve a more contoured physique for years. These days, Dr. Lawton uses an advanced ‘liposculpting’ technique to remove stubborn fat on the abdomen, flanks, hips, inner/outer thighs, and anywhere else you experience post-pregnancy weight gain. Liposuction is a highly customized procedure with an average cost of $3,200.
