Mummy Makeover: $23,900

The goal of a mummy makeover is to restore the shape and appearance of a woman's body after childbearing. Many women notice changes in their bodies post-pregnancy. There are many areas of the body that can be addressed; most commonly it is the breasts and abdomen. A mummy makeover can be performed as a single stage procedure. There are many techniques used to perform a mummy makeover, and these factors will be taken into consideration during your consultation with the surgeon: i.e. the combination of an augmentation and an uplift may incur further costs.

Breast Augmentation: $9,980

Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as a "breast aug" or "boob job" by patients, involves using breast implants to increase the size of your breasts. This procedure can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size asymmetry.

Breast augmentation does not correct sagging breasts. In this case a breast lift may be required along with a breast augmentation to look fuller and lifted. Breast lifting can be done at the same time as your augmentation. Your plastic surgeon will assist you in making this decision.

Breast Augmentation with Breast Lift: $14,300

BBA (Bilateral Breast Augmentation) involves using breast implants to increase the size of your breasts. This procedure can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size and asymmetry.

 

A Breast Lift (Mastopexy) raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time; a breast lift can reduce this as well. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted. A woman’s breasts often change overtime losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:
