What Does a Mommy Makeover Cost in California?

Posted March 30, 2024 in Financing Options, Mommy Makeover

California residents know that pretty much everything in California is expensive. If you’re planning something major, it’s safe to assume you’ll need to budget carefully for it. Mommy Makeover surgery is no exception, as this transformative procedure usually comes with a high price tag. While the cost of a Mommy Makeover varies per surgeon, a Mommy Makeover by Dr. Taleisnik typically ranges from $11,000 to $17,000 and is influenced by the following:

  • Number and Extent of Procedures: The cost of a Mommy Makeover varies based on the specific procedures included. Most commonly, a Mommy Makeover includes a tummy tuck, breast surgery (augmentation and/or lift), and liposuction, but it may include more or fewer procedures. The more extensive the makeover, the higher the cost will be.
  • Facility Fees: There will be additional fees associated with the surgery site (where your outpatient surgery will be performed). This is a standard practice for all medical facilities.
  • Anesthesia Fees: Anesthesia is a crucial part of any surgical procedure and will contribute to the total cost of your Mommy Makeover.
  • Equipment Fees: There will be additional charges based on the specialized equipment used during your surgery. For instance, implants used for breast augmentation or a powered cannula used for liposuction will incur a charge.

Planning Ahead Financially

To help you plan ahead financially for your Mommy Makeover, consider the following:

  • Consultation: Your consultation is a one-on-one appointment that can provide you with all the information you need to know about what a Mommy Makeover will entail for you specifically. Schedule a consultation with our experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Andres Taleisnik to discuss your goals and receive a personalized quote based on your specific needs.
  • Financing Options: Consider all the financing options available to cover the cost of your Mommy Makeover. In addition to cash or cashier’s check, our practice accepts payments by all major credit cards as well as financing through CareCredit® to help you finance your Mommy Makeover.
  • Budget for Everything: When you are budgeting for your procedure, be sure to consider not just the cost of the procedure itself (as quoted to you at your consultation) but the costs associated with having major surgery. Factor in time off work, childcare, postoperative care, medications, and other expenses that may arise during your recovery period.
  • Insurance Coverage: Mommy Makeovers are typically considered aesthetic procedures and not eligible for medical insurance coverage. However, certain aspects of a Mommy Makeover may indeed be covered by insurance, such as a breast reduction for medical reasons. Check with your insurance provider to understand your coverage options.
