Mommy makeovers, the name applied to plastic surgeries meant to return a woman's body back to pre-pregnancy form, have become especially popular in recent years. The procedure often includes a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast lift, and despite their popularity, some people have expressed concerns.

One of the biggest questions associated with mommy makeovers is whether having extensive surgeries so close to each other too risky?

While a mommy makeover is certainly not too risky, some patients may be concerned with the price tag. Because it combines a number of different procedures, the total cost can be anywhere between $12,000 and $20,000, according to the website. Still, the results may be worth the price.
