What Goes into the Price Tag on a Tummy Tuck?

One of the first things that many people want to find out when researching a tummy tuck is how much it will cost, and understandably so. The cost of a tummy tuck can be an investment that many people may save up for, so it is important to know if your procedure will fit within a comfortable budget. 

That said, the cost of a tummy tuck can vary widely, based on a variety of factors. Here’s what goes into the price tag on a tummy tuck, and some tips to help you choose a plastic surgeon and a tummy tuck technique that’s right for you.

Plastic Surgeon Selection 

Your plastic surgeon’s credentials should be the leading factor that helps you choose — not the price tag. If cost is a constraint for you, talk to your plastic surgeon about financing or payment options to help make your procedure affordable for your budget. Never skimp on your safety or the quality of your results in the name of a bargain price tag on plastic surgery.

Surgical Techniques

Is liposuction included in your tummy tuck? Are you going for a no-drain tummy tuck option with fewer complications during recovery, but a slightly longer and more complex procedure? These factors will influence the total cost of your upcoming abdominoplasty. Discuss your tummy tuck options with your plastic surgeon during your consultation to help you choose the best fit for your goals.

Surgery-Related Costs

Other costs related to your surgery day can include anesthesia costs, operating room facility fees, prescription medications and others. 

These costs are often in addition to the tummy tuck cost estimates that you might find online. So while the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates the cost of a tummy tuck to be around $6,000 for the surgeon’s fee, your total cost will likely be higher.
