Is a Mommy Makeover Worth It?April 12, 2016
After giving birth, many women struggle with their appearance and consequently, their self-confidence. A mommy makeover is a plastic surgical approach to the breasts and body which restores form and brings back that undeniable confidence!
According to RealSelf.com, the Mommy Makeover has a 95% “Worth It” rating stemming from more than 17,000 reviews. But don’t just take their word for it – hear from some of our actual patients who have undergone this incredible transformation:
How Much Does A Mommy Makeover Cost?
We can accurately say that the average Columbus, Ohio Mommy Makeover cost ranges between $18,000 and $26,000. This price covers all aspects of the procedure, including consultation, operating room time, anesthesia, recovery garments, follow-ups and more.
This is one of the most difficult procedures to assign an average price tag to simply because it really depends on which procedures a patient opts in for. For example: A patient undergoing a breast lift and liposuction is going to have a different quote than a patient looking for a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and labiaplasty.
The Greatest Benefit: Multiple Life-Changing Procedures At Once For A Lower Cost
A mommy makeover combines procedures into a single operation to reduce overall cost and minimize recovery time. This leads to a faster return to work and to parenting (also known as work).
Mothers may consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine whether a mommy makeover is the right solution.
Another Deciding Factor: Frustration With Slow-Moving, Natural Results
Many women feel less attractive after pregnancy. Most turn to diet and exercise to shed excess weight, but these steps do not address loose skin, stubborn fat, stretched labia or sagging breasts. While some women are blessed with the enviable genetic ability to “rebound” as if it never happened, most struggle with lingering problem areas. When a mother sees partial progress in nutrition and fitness, but is still unhappy with specific parts of the body, a mommy makeover might be worth it!
The Potential Components of a Mommy Makeover
As mentioned, Mommy Makeover surgery is a catch-all term for several different procedures rolled into one. This surgery can include one or more of the following:
These treatments target the areas of the body that are most commonly affected by a pregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding.
