How much would a breast lift and tummy tuck cost including breast augmentation?

Q:

I want to get a breast lift and tummy tuck. I have excess skin from having 5 kids and want to get rid of the sagging breasts also. How much would a breast lift and tummy tuck cost including breast augmentation?

A:

Btitany,

 

 Yes, you can have a TT, BA and Mastopexy all at the same time but, this can and could be an extensive combined plastic surgery procedure. For your safety make sure that you are monitored at least for a period of time (12 to 24 hrs) after the procedure by someone with a medical background (nurse, etc). Appropriate precautions should be taken to prevent you from experiencing a DVT/ PE in the peri-operative period.

 Costs for such an extensive set of procedures vary across the country, the severity of your post pregnancy state and the time required to perform your surgery's. In our area the price would start at $15K and go up. For more specific information consider a consult with a member of the ASAPS in your area. They are experts in Mommy Make Overs.  

Best,

Always that you have return to the normal weight for your height, it will depend on the experience of the surgeon you choose, who must be an ASAPS member, and the facility that he/she will use.

A:

The combination of breast lift (mastopexy), breast augmentation, and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) has acquired the common name of "Mommy Makeover."  You should have an in-person evaluation by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon before concluding you are a candidate and discussing whether separate stages are recommended.  These and other factors will determine what you will be charged. 

In my practice breast lift with implants may currently be approximately $9,000.  Tummy tuck would range $6,400 to $8,200.  If you could have them together, there would be some savings.  Our fee ranges typically include facility, implants, supplies, garments, and physician MD anesthesia.

You can see national average physician fees elsewhere on the ASAPS website.  Those fees only include the MD charge, not the facility and anesthesia.  http://www.surgery.org/sites/default/files/ASAPS-2012-Stats.pdf

A:

I do understand the concern about the cost. However the quality is more important. Repair of bad results is much more expensive than the original surgery. Choose a plastic surgeon with experience. This is an investment in yourself for a long time.
