How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?


so a mommy makeover all right it’s a term that’s out there and it means a lot of different things and it can be very confusing so let me see if I can break it down all right after you have it after you have a baby it affects two areas primarily your abdomen and your breasts right and everybody’s a little bit different so that’s why mommy makeovers can be so variable let’s just talk about it and break it down a little bit regarding the tummy that usually means a tummy tuck at the Austin western center a tummy tuck cost about ten thousand dollars we can add on breast work to that surgery and we often do them together I mean we really ought to there are three maybe four different ways of dealing with the breast we can make them bigger because we’ve lost volume after breast feedings we can reduce them lift them and reduce them because they’ve gotten bigger or we can just simply lift them right so those are three different things we can do once you add breast surgery into a mommy makeover you’re adding about four thousand dollars to the cost there is a fourth breast surgery where you not only lift the breast that you make it bigger right that adds another two thousand dollars to the cost you up to around sixteen thousand dollars an hour service then sometimes depending on your weight a lot of people have trouble getting back into their fighting weight after having a baby and so at that point sometimes we’re doing liposuction the way we do it here is we break it down by area not by volume but by area and so every area that we do adds about $2500 to $3000 more to the surgery because it’s more time more anesthesia it’s a different type of surgery so at that point if you’re doing a tummy tuck breast surgery and one area of liposuction usually this area behind the back we call the flanks you’re looking at around eighteen to twenty thousand dollars with the surgery here not maybe even is a little bit high but when we work things here if in terms of cost at Austin Western the Senate for cosmetic surgery the biggest procedure is charged full price so if we’re doing a mommy makeover for example Breast and Tummy Tuck the tummy tuck it’s going to be the biggest procedure and that cost by the time all said and done around ten thousand dollars including the operating room including the anesthesia including all your garments including the pain pump we’re not gonna charge doing nickel and anyas it’s one fee that’s kind of it if we do a breast surgery after that it gets halfed okay if we do liposuction after in conjunction with it that gets halved also all of these things that come afterwards come in at half price and that’s why you know we it makes sense to to sort of group all this stuff together and we want to make it easy for people to do that because it’s been one recovery you go through this one time and you’re out into the rest of your life it’s also one of the reasons that it’s important to kind of be done with children you don’t want to do this and then get pregnant again we also don’t want to do this and gain a lot of weight so you kind of want to be stable you want to have you pretty much done with your children but I’ve had people get pregnant after a tummy tuck and it’s not the end of the world it can happen how will you know if it’s as good as we can get it well that’s why we have you come back at three months and there may be little things we can fuss with one of the great things about this Center here at Austin Weston is that we own the operating rooms the staff that work here are our employees and so it doesn’t cost anything for us to take you back to the operating room if we do need to fuss with something three months that’s thousands of dollars that’s you know saved to you if we need or want to just tweak something afterwards and it’s very important because you know it’s really about turning off that little voice in your head that’s just unhappy and making life just not as much fun as it used to be I guess every place has a policy for revisions our policy is I don’t think we really have a policy you know our policy is is that we want to make people happy and to the extent that I think I can make it better and I see it oh I’m going to bend over backwards to get it done on the rare blue moon occasion I honestly can’t see what’s what the problem is afterwards well I we may follow up over time and see if something gets visible to me but that’s pretty unusual I can usually make things a little bit better people are unhappy but my revision rate at least mine is really very low every procedure every procedure has its own or vision rate rhinoplasty is 2 out of 100 you know tummy tucks maybe a little bit more than that but it’s not that common breast augmentation breast augmentations we actually have a guarantee in this practice for three years if you come back once a year so that we can check you and make sure everything is going away we wanted to for three years we won’t charge you anything if you if you have any problems with your breasts now that usually falls into two categories one is a capsular contracture which we just don’t see here very often anymore or an implant malposition again something that doesn’t really happen and so we’re able to guarantee our results I don’t think that exists anywhere else in this country let us talk about cost for a second these are the other surgical surgeons and what they would charge we we check around to make sure that we’re not completely out of line with our costs and we’re not we’re we’re high middle okay and you know I from our perspective that’s kind of where we want to be we we don’t want to be excessively abnormal we want to make we want to make it available to people because we love what we do we see the power of it and that’s we’re here to make contributions and we don’t want to be the cheapest because then we can’t provide the quality that we provide there’s always that trade-off between quality service and cost and you can kind of compete on two out of the three and we choose quality and service so we are obviously focused on costs we want to keep it down as best we can but at the end of the day you’re going to live with this result for the rest of your life okay and we have specialized me personally for 25 years trying to figure out ways to improve my technique to not only get you through the surgery as quickly and easily as possible but also to get long-lasting results that you’re going to love
