A mommy makeover is a group of procedures that has traditionally included breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, and liposuction. But today’s mommy makeover packages can include any number of procedures, both surgical and non-surgical to achieve a pre-baby body and even enhance your face.
But for many, the cost of a mommy makeover is a significant and understandable concern. At Image Surgical Arts, we want to make sure that candidates understand the costs and financing options so that they can fully enjoy their new bodies without any stress or guilt.
The total cost of your mommy makeover depends on several factors, including:
- Type(s) of procedures
- Operating room costs
- Anesthesia fees
- Prescriptions for pain management and to prevent infection
The cost of a mommy makeover can vary greatly between two individuals. Beyond the items above, here are a few things to consider that you may not have thought of.
Location of the Practice
The location of the practice often significantly influences the cost of a mommy makeover or any surgery for that matter. Factors such as the cost of housing and fuel, proximity to a major medical center, as well as city size, utilities, and taxes are all reflected in the cost of surgery.
The Quality of the Surgeon
A surgeon skilled in the art and science of cosmetic surgery and with a solid history of excellent outcomes and satisfied patients may charge a higher fee than a less specialized surgeon who has fewer qualifications and experience. You should feel comfortable asking your potential surgeon about their background. Ideally, you want a board-certified surgeon and an accredited surgical venue. Furthermore, you should choose a surgeon with demonstrated experience in the kinds of procedures that may be a part of your mommy makeover.
Hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers usually have higher overhead while private surgical suites are a more cost-effective alternative for many.
A mommy makeover is considered a major surgery that requires the use of general anesthesia, meaning that you will be completely asleep throughout the duration of your procedure. An experienced anesthesia provider is a critical part of the surgical team as they keep you safe and comfortable even after the surgeries. More experienced anesthesia providers may charge higher fees.
Other Financial Considerations
Along with surgical costs, you’ll want to consider the associated costs that arise from taking a leave of absence from work, school, and any other obligations. You’ll want to budget in funds for childcare and other conveniences in the weeks following your surgery, such as food prep and household duties better managed by outside help. Of course, you may be in a position to enlist the help of friends and family to mitigate the costs and provide much-needed support during this time of recovery.
Additional costs at other practices may include pre-op and post-op appointments, surgical drains and bandages, support garments, pain medications, and antibiotics. These costs may not be included in your initial quote. At Image Surgical Arts, all pre-op and post-op visits are included in the price. We also include your initial garment and lab fees.
