How Much Is a Mommy Makeover in Las Vegas?
The changes your body goes through after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding are amazing, but if your body refuses to bounce back, these changes can be unwelcome.
A Mommy Makeover can help you get your pre-baby body back and, with it, your confidence. However, many women are concerned with the cost of this procedure and have a hard time finding a definitive answer.
Below, we will discuss what goes into the price of a Mommy Makeover so you can decide whether this procedure is right for you.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Many women are discouraged by the changes their bodies undergo following pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
For many, the rapid weight fluctuations cause skin laxity in areas they hadn’t had before, such as the breasts, abdomen, and hips. In addition, the body carries more weight or stubborn fat pockets due to hormonal fluctuations, leaving many women feeling like they don’t recognize themselves in the mirror.
A Mommy Makeover combines several plastic surgery procedures into one surgery that is tailored to each patient. This procedure often incorporates a tummy tuck, liposuction, and some form of cosmetic breast surgery; however, the combination of procedures you choose will be unique to your specific needs and goals. Below are some popular procedures included in a Mommy Makeover.
- A tummy tuck is the only surgical procedure that can correct diastasis recti, which is the separation and laxity of the abdominal muscles. Additionally, a tummy tuck can remove excess skin that has been stretched by pregnancy.
- Liposuction is an incredibly versatile procedure that permanently removes stubborn fat pockets in various body areas, including the hips, thighs, abdomen, and back. Liposuction is often performed at the same time as a tummy tuck to smooth the midsection.
- Breast lift surgery is a game changer for women with sagging, droopy breasts. The skin stretches as the breasts grow to accommodate the changes in hormones. While the breasts often return to their normal volume, the skin remains loose, resulting in breast ptosis. Breast lift surgery can restore the breasts to their perky, well-shaped appearance.
- Breast augmentation can help women restore lost volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding. This is a fantastic procedure to combine with a breast lift for a full breast revamp. Breast augmentation alone can have stunning results for women who have minimal sagging yet are unhappy with the size and volume of their breasts.
These are just the most common procedures women choose for their Mommy Makeovers. A consultation with your board-certified plastic surgeon can help determine which procedures will best benefit you and your body.
How to Determine the Cost of Your Mommy Makeover
You may wonder why most plastic surgeons do not have specific pricing on their websites. This is because each surgery—and surgeon—will vary greatly. We’ll outline the most common fees to give you a better understanding of what you can expect.
The most common price you’ll see online is the surgeon’s fee, which will vary greatly depending on the surgeon’s training, experience, and skill level. This fee will also vary for each surgery, depending on the complexity of the procedure and the time needed to perform it.
Facility fees refer to various costs that help your surgery happen, including the operating room surgical equipment, medications, and nursing services. These fees will differ from one surgical facility to another. They will also vary depending on whether the surgeon performs the surgery in their own surgical facility or if they use a neighboring facility such as a surgical center or hospital operating room. The facility fees will also vary depending on whether an overnight stay is required.
The anesthesia fees include all the costs associated with administering anesthesia, including the anesthesiologist’s fee, the type of anesthesia provided (local vs. general), and the duration of the procedure.
With so many varying factors, the best way to determine the cost of your specific plastic surgery procedure is to sit down with your board-certified plastic surgeon during a consultation and discuss your options.
Once your plastic surgeon knows which procedures you are interested in, he can give you an accurate cost estimate.
Why a Mommy Makeover Is Actually a Cost-Efficient Surgery
You may think a Mommy Makeover is more expensive than other procedures. And if you only want one procedure, that certainly is true. But if you are considering multiple procedures to enhance your appearance and regain your confidence, combining procedures with a Mommy Makeover is often the best choice.
Additionally, combining procedures cuts down on your recovery period. It typically takes six weeks to recover from a tummy tuck and nearly as long to heal after breast augmentation. Undergoing these procedures at different times will require you to recover from each separately, but combining your procedures into one surgery will allow you to recover simultaneously—cutting down on the time you’ll need to take off from work and find childcare.
A consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. George Alexander, can help you determine which procedures are necessary for your specific needs and goals and give you a clear picture of the costs and recovery time you can expect.
