How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?

October 11, 2023

Whether your bundle of joy arrived a year ago or just left for college, you have options to undo the effects of pregnancy on your body. A mommy makeover in Newport Beach can restore the parts of the body most affected by pregnancy. This procedure can help you regain the confidence you had before children, letting you feel like your younger, freer self again. 

What is a Mommy Makeover? 

Pregnancy affects the entire body, although areas like the breasts and abdomen experience even more changes. A mommy makeover is a special combination of procedures that can be designed to address post-pregnancy concerns. Since pregnancy affects each woman differently, each mommy makeover at Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach is customized to your goals. While most mommy makeovers share common components, yours can include almost anything.

How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?

Since they are customized procedures, each mommy makeover will have a different cost. Factors that usually affect the price of your mommy makeover include:

  • Your location
  • Your provider’s skill and experience
  • The procedures included
  • Other expenses

The average national cost of a mommy makeover may range from $12,000 to $20,000. This estimate depends on the included procedures and does not include anesthesia, medications, lab tests, or other costs. The best way to understand your mommy makeover costs is to schedule a consultation with our experienced board-certified plastic surgeons. They will assess your needs and discuss what your unique procedure may include. 

What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover has several core components but can also include other procedures. It is completely customizable to achieve your goals. We will discuss all your various treatment options during your consultation. We offer both virtual and in-person consultations in Newport Beach, California. 

Tummy Tuck

The abdomen experiences stretching and stress during pregnancy. As a result, you may have loose skin, stubborn fat, and separated abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck in Newport Beach addresses all these conditions by removing excess skin and fat. It also repairs abdominal muscles and repositions the belly button for a flat, toned stomach. 

Breast Enhancement

Restoring your breasts can include a reduction, lift, or augmentation. If you have noticed that your breasts look flat or deflated after pregnancy, a breast lift with or without augmentation offers an effective solution. We can even perform fat transfer to the breasts and use unwanted fat from another area of your body for natural enhancement. No silicone or saline implants needed if you’re looking for an alternative! We will work with you to determine which procedure or combination of enhancements will help you achieve your goals. 


Fat accumulated during pregnancy is a challenge to eliminate. It often clings to areas like the abdomen, hips, thighs, and even under the chin. Liposuction in Newport Beach gives your surgeon a tool to sculpt and shape your figure. Liposuction gives you the final contours of your mommy makeover and smooths any problem bulges. 

Other Procedures

We offer a range of procedures, including vaginoplasty and labiaplasty, to restore your vaginal areas to their pre-baby state. These procedures can restore your self-esteem and let you enjoy intimate activities more confidently. Talk to your team during your consultation about the range of vaginal rejuvenation options.

What is the Recovery Like After a Mommy Makeover?

You should expect to spend the first few days after surgery resting. We recommend planning for a friend or relative to help you with household tasks, especially childcare, during this time. Most soreness, bruising, and swelling will start to resolve after the first week. We recommend that you anticipate at least two to three weeks off from regular activities to recover. Avoid strenuous physical activities for at least four to six weeks. Your team will advise when you can resume your exercise or normal routine. 

When Will I See Mommy Makeover Results?

You will usually have a compression garment and surgical bra to wear after your procedure. You can see a difference immediately after surgery. However, swelling takes several months to resolve completely. Your full results may take six months to a year to develop. During this time, incision marks fade significantly, and your contours will look smoother and more sculpted. 

Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Candidates for mommy makeover surgery in Newport Beach should be healthy enough for surgery. Your board-certified surgeon will ensure you have reasonable expectations about your results. Ideal candidates typically wish to correct the effects of pregnancy on their bodies. However, a mommy makeover is a combination of procedures that may be appropriate for you even if you haven’t had children! You may be a good candidate if you are unhappy with your breasts, abdomen, and/or fat accumulations after pregnancy, significant weight fluctuations, or simply due to aging. 

Before planning a mommy makeover, you should wait at least six months to a year after your last pregnancy. We usually recommend it for those who have finished growing their families. Good candidates for a mommy makeover have support that can help in the days after the procedure to help with a smooth recovery. 

I am a patient of Dr. Nichter I had liposuction and BBL. I am very pleased with the outcome, exactly what he said is what he did. The office was great help.
