How much does a Tummy tuck and Breast Augmentation cost?


The trend of undergoing multiple plastic surgeries at one time has seen a significant rise in quite a few years now.  Owing to latest advancements in medical technology, it is much safer to combine multiple procedures than before. It makes sense for a person seeking cosmetic surgery abroad to combine procedures as it makes more economic sense. Another advantage is the drastic makeover that the lady gets in one sitting rather than waiting to get that change in two or three sittings.

Thus the concept of mommy makeover is getting hugely popular worldwide and is on a great rise among medical tourists coming to India. Most of women from UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand seek mommy makeover in India while looking for cosmetic surgery overseas.

Tummy Tuck and Breast Augmentation together have become one of the most popular combo plastic surgery procedures.

According to 2010 statistics of American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Breast Augmentation ranked 1st and Tummy Tuck ranked fourth among the top 5 plastic surgery procedures.

Partial Abdominoplasty (Mini – Tummy Tuck) – A mini tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from lower abdomen or the portion below the navel. The surgeon makes an incision in the lower abdominal wall reaching navel and removes excess skin tightening the abdominal muscles and then closes the incision.

Extended Abdominoplasty – This is a surgery of choice when there is greater amount of loose skin on abdomen and hips. A long incision is made reaching hips and lower back. Liposuction is also done to remove excess fat and drain excess fluids. The procedure is called a complete abdominoplasty with a lateral thigh lift.

2.       Type of Breast Augmentation Procedures
The cost for Breast Augmentation depends upon the type of breast augmentation. Breast Augmentation is commonly done either through fat transfers or using breast implants. If one opts for Breast Implants Surgery, the cost would further vary with the types of breast implants one opts for.

Types of Breast Implants

Silicone – gel Implants – These implants give a natural feel to the breasts. The implants are cohesive and superimposed layers prevent leakage of fluid during physical activity. They provide natural consistency when touched and are highly durable.



Saline Implants – These implants are filled with saline solution and have the property that even if the contents leak out, the contents are metabolized naturally by the body.



Mentor and Allergan are among the popular companies that produce silicone gel and saline implants and these implants are available at different costs across different countries.
