The difference between a tummy tuck and a mommy makeover

What is the difference between a tummy tuck and a mommy makeover?

Tummy tuck is another name for an abdominoplasty. A tummy tuck  addresses the abdomen area by removing excess skin and tightening the muscles if needed. A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures that more often than not, includes a tummy tuck.

What’s included in a mommy makeover?

Oftentimes, a mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast surgery. The procedures don’t stop there. A mommy makeover may include any type of surgery needed or wanted by the patient on the body. These surgeries can address sagging skin, cellulite, stretch marks, volume loss, and unwanted fat.

How long does a mommy makeover surgery last and are all the procedures done at once?

A mommy makeover can last anywhere from 3-8 hours depending on how many and what procedures you get. Not all patients can undergo all the procedures at once. Dr. Crofts will review your health history and perform a physical exam to determine which procedures are safe to be done together. In some cases, he may recommend staging your procedures.

How much does a mommy makeover cost?

The cost of a mommy makeover varies depending on which procedures you are getting. Dr. Crofts’ patients can be eligible for a multiple procedure discount. His mommy makeover patients can save up to $1,800.
