How Much Does A Tummy Tuck Cost?
When considering the cost of any procedure, there are three key considerations.
- The first consideration is the experience and expertise of the surgeon. You want to look for a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience and a history of satisfied patients.
- The second consideration is the geographic location of the surgeon’s practice. The cost of procedures in very large, highly populated areas can differ from the cost of the same procedure in a very remote, sparsely populated region. The cost of living in different areas will affect the overall cost of the treatment.
- The final factor to consider when counting the cost of the tummy tuck is the type of procedure that will be used and the extent of the work that must be done.
With these 3 factors in mind, according to the 2018 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a Tummy Tuck is $6253. This figure does not include the price of the anesthesia, the operating room charge, or the post-operative compression garments and prescriptions. It is also important to note that most Tummy Tuck surgeries are not covered by insurance companies, making the total cost of the surgery the responsibility of the patient alone. Many surgeons do offer financing plans, so be sure to inquire about those during your initial consultation.
