Financial Considerations for a Mommy Makeover
Mommy makeover plastic surgery is a major procedure involving two or more surgeries performed together. Therefore, the cost of a mommy makeover will usually be higher compared to a single cosmetic surgery procedure. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Hisham Seify discusses the estimated costs of the procedure with his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other areas during the initial consultation.
A mommy makeover procedure is highly customizable and the type and number of surgeries can be decided according to the individual needs of a patient. Therefore, the cost of this procedure can vary from one patient to another even when it is performed by the same cosmetic surgeon.
If a patient requires significant improvements in the physical appearance and is a fit candidate for multiple procedures, the surgeon may include tummy tuck, breast implants, liposuction or other procedures as a part of the mommy makeover plastic surgery. The cost will be determined in proportion to the nature and extent of the procedures performed.
In some ways, a mommy makeover procedure is more cost-effective when compared to the cost of an individual cosmetic surgery procedure. When a procedure is performed individually, the costs of general anesthesia, operating room costs, surgeon’s fee and other related expenses such as medical tests, prescription drugs, surgical garments and others are likely to remain the same.
In case of a mommy makeover, the plastic surgeon can combine all the procedures in one go. This eliminates duplication of costs, improves the efficiency of the procedure, and helps achieve more cohesive aesthetic outcomes. Furthermore, when multiple procedures are performed together, in many cases, the cosmetic surgeon may provide them at a discounted price as a part of a package.
Therefore, patients should consider all cost-related factors carefully while evaluating whether to choose a mommy makeover. Dr. Seify will discuss these cost aspects at the time of the initial consultation with his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other areas.
Average Cost of a Mommy Makeover
The average cost of a mommy makeover may range from $8,000 to $20,000, depending on the extent and number of procedures involved, among other factors. Patients should have a fair idea of the individual costs of the procedures that will be a part of their mommy makeover. This will provide them with a comparison of the financial impact of the entire procedure performed as a package.
The statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) statistics in 2012 indicated that the average cost of tummy tuck in the US was $5,241, the cost of breast implants was $3,543, the cost of breast lift was $4,332, and the cost of liposuction was $2,852. However, these basic costs exclude the costs of anesthesia, operating facility costs and other related expenses.
The ASPS also advised that the costs of a mommy makeover would vary from one practice to another based on several factors. Patients may explore various financing options that are available in order to make payments of the procedure in convenient monthly installments.
