A Refreshed Appearance
A Mommy Makeover is designed especially for women, who after pregnancy, are not happy with the way their body has changed. Pregnancy can alter the shape of and skin around breast and abdomen, making it very difficult to return to the bodies pre-pregnancy shape. The surgery usually includes a tummy tuck to restore the abdominal wall muscle and most often a breast augmentation or a breast lift, or both!
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Package Cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover package varies from patient to patient and depends on the procedures involved. We offer a range of mommy makeover packages, including:
- Package 1: Breast Augmentation and Liposuction Most patients could expect to spend in the range of $9000-$12000
- Package 2: Breast Lift and Tummy Tuck Most patients could expect to spend in the range of $18000-$22000
- Package 3: Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck Most patients could expect to spend in the range of $17000-$20000
Each package is designed to accommodate the unique needs of each individual who decides to undergo the procedure. Dr. Howard will take care to address your most pressing concerns as she develops a surgical plan that’s tailored to your unique bodily contours.
If your surgeon feels it is safe for you to combine multiple procedures into one surgical setting, you could benefit from added cost savings and a single recovery period.

Developing Your Mommy Makeover Package
The tummy tuck involves surgically removing excess fat and skin around the abdomen, as well as tightening the abdominal wall muscles. A horizontal incision is made with a full tummy tuck in the area between the pubic hairline and navel. Incision sizes vary depending on how much skin is to be removed. A mini tummy tuck is isolated to the area below the navel with a shorter incision. It is common for liposuction to also be performed with a full or mini tummy tuck.
If you undergo breast surgery such as a breast lift and breast augmentation, the incision patterns will vary. Patient and Surgeon preference in relation to the size of the implants along with the amount of excess skin and the degree of lifting required determines the incision. The excess skin is surgically removed, raising the nipple and tightening the breast tissue.
If there is a significant amount of excess fat that needs to be addressed, we may consider implementing liposuction in order to trim down those areas that are prone to accumulating stubborn fat. Our goal is to ensure that our patients can achieve a look they can carry with confidence and will only suggest procedures we feel you could truly benefit from.

RecoveryThe first few days of recovery will require help. No driving for several days, and you must refrain from physical activity for a few weeks. It is important to not subject your incisions to excessive force, swelling, motion, or abrasion during your recovery time.
