How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Your exact price will differ depending on your chosen plastic surgery procedures, the board-certified surgeon, and your location, but expect to pay between $17,000 and $24,000 for a mommy makeover at most Amelia Aesthetics locations.
Many surgeons will also offer a multiple-procedure discount, usually around 10% of the total cost.
Be sure to ask your surgeon about their fee schedule and discounts. 10% of $20,000 isn't something you want to leave on the table!
So…what is included in the cost of a mommy makeover?
What is included varies from surgeon to surgeon. For some practices, the price you are given will include everything from doctor's visits to your initial consultation, the procedure itself, and anesthesia.
However, there is no rule of thumb when it comes to pricing, so don't be afraid to ask what your price includes!
Keep in mind expenses like surgeon fees, operating time, garments, medications, scar serums, pre/post-op visits, and anesthesia. Nobody likes surprises when it comes to the bill!
Amelia Aesthetics even offers a handy pricing tool, so you know exactly what your procedure will cost before your consultation.
How do I pay for my mommy makeover?
With over 50,000 members (and counting!), we hear this all of the time in our online Bustmob Community.
The truth is, it is a little different for everyone. Most plastic surgeons will require the total amount before your procedure so keep that in mind when financially planning your procedure.
While paying cash is often the preferred choice, it isn't always possible for everyone.
Some choose to save and pay cash for part of the total and pay the other part on a low-interest credit card.
Many offices also offer financing options with a variety of plans to suit your needs.
Your patient care coordinator will be able to walk you through your options so you can make the right decision for you.
What is a mommy makeover exactly?
Mommy makeover is simply a marketing term to describe multiple cosmetic surgery procedures, typically breast augmentation and body surgery, done at once and has absolutely nothing to do with motherhood.
Some see changes in their body from motherhood (think breastfeeding, pregnancy), but for others, major weight gain or loss and simply aging have left their skin stretched out with stubborn fat pockets and sagging or deflated breasts.
More and more people, not just moms, are opting for mommy makeover procedures and it makes sense. Combining procedures means lower costs, one anesthesia sleep, and one recovery.
What's not to love?
Mommy makeovers typically include a mix & match of:
- Breast lift: Removes excess skin, resizes and reshapes areola, addresses breast shape and nipple placement
- Breast implants: Add volume to the breasts
- Breast reduction: Removes damaged skin, removes excess breast tissue, addresses breast shape and areola size, shape, and placement
- Tummy tuck: Repairs separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) and removes damaged skin and stretch marks
- Liposuction: Shapes and contours the body by permanently removing fat that cannot be targeted with diet and exercise

How do I know what procedures to choose?
As you now know, your price varies depending on the procedures you choose. A consultation with your plastic surgeon is the only way to know for sure your exact procedures.
However, it's important to have an idea of what procedures you're interested in based on your aesthetic goals (looks you like and don't like).
Be sure to do your research ahead of time, save "wish" pictures of results you love, and save them to use as a guide for your consultation.
