Frequently Asked Questions
Will There Be Scars with a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover can restore your body after having children, and incisions are required to make this happen. Our surgeon with extensive expertise and good technique can control scarring and instruct you on to how to minimize the scars so they fade to being almost invisible. With our careful incision placement, you should be comfortable wearing even the most revealing clothing.
Will Health Insurance Cover my Mommy Makeover?
While your health insurance may in some rare cases cover some portion of a mommy makeover, most of the procedures included are generally considered to be elective and will, therefore, not be covered. Our staff is extremely familiar with working with insurance companies and will assist with these questions.
What is the Cost of a Mommy Makeover?
The cost of a mommy makeover can vary greatly depending on where you live, the number and type of procedures you choose to include, and your surgeon. It is safe to estimate that most mommy makeovers will cost between $9,000 and $20,000. There is no way to get an exact quote for a mommy makeover without a private consultation with your surgeon.
Can I Have a Mommy Makeover if I Have Not Had Children Yet?
Definitely! The term “mommy makeover” generally refers to a combination of procedures designed to treat the impact of pregnancy and breastfeeding on a woman’s body. While mothers are definitely the majority of our clients for this procedure, there are also many women who need this procedure due to dramatic weight loss, sagging skin with age, stretch marks, stubborn pockets of fat, and more.
Can I Still Breastfeed After a Mommy Makeover?
Yes, it is still possible to breastfeed after a breast augmentation done as part of a mommy makeover. This would depend on the method in which the doctor places the implants, so be sure to mention this during your consultation. Something to keep in mind, however, is that breastfeeding after your breast augmentation can possibly result in the need for a future breast lift, due to stretching and sagging commonly caused by breastfeeding. Ideally, mothers should wait six months after breastfeeding their last child before moving forward with a breast augmentation.
