Has pregnancy or weight loss taken a toll on your tummy? You can get back a lean, toned midsection with a tummy tuck. If you are thinking about getting a tummy tuck, it’s important to find out how much it costs, so that you can get the necessary financing together to move forward.
What is a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is typically done to give patients a firmer, flatter tummy by removing excess skin and fat. It may also involve tightening the underlying abdominal muscles.
Although tummy tuck surgery can be performed on both men and women, it is a popular option for moms wanting to get rid of their post-pregnancy belly pooch, and reduce stretch marks.
How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?
According to the 2018 report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a tummy tuck costs an average of $6,253. However, the cost of a tummy tuck can vary significantly from the average for each patient, because it is a highly customized procedure.
What goes into the cost of a tummy tuck?
The cost of a tummy tuck is affected by considerations such as the complexity of the procedure, the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia fees, geographic location, and surgical facility fees.
Also, depending on the volume of fat that has to be removed from the abdomen, a tummy tuck may be combined with liposuction. Including liposuction will push up the final cost of the procedure.
