We will talk about a very popular cosmetic surgery called tummy tuck. Actually, we are going to focus more on the cost of this surgery. The cost of this procedure, also called abdominoplasty, can be very high. We will first see what tummy tuck really is. This surgery helps us get flat stomach by removing the excess fat surgically, or by tightening the abdominal muscles. Liposuction, pregnancy and excessive loss of weight are some of the activities that may require this surgery. This procedure lasts several hours, but the costs are very high and they usually put people off.
Tummy Tuck Costs
Charges for the liposuction, anesthesia fee, type of the surgery done, surgeon’s experience, locations are some of the factors that determine the price. There are a number of fees that have to be included in the costs. Surely the cost will be greater if a renowned surgeon is performing the surgery or if the surgery is done in more urban and bigger cities. Surgeon’s fees are the greatest and they can surely be cut down by selecting a surgeon with less reputation. But never use the services of a surgeon who has not been certified by an American Board of Plastic Surgeons. The surgeon is very important not only for the cost, but also for the success of the operation. The cost of the surgery may be a high one, but remember to always talk about the surgeon before deciding to go for the tummy tuck surgery.
Location of the surgeon's office is another factor that dictates the price. High expenses are connected with the more urban and metropolitan cities. Low prices can be found in suburbs and in some states. Also, there are several types of the surgeries available and they also determine the cost. There are extended tummy tuck, circumferential abdominoplasty, endoscopic tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, and traditional tummy tuck. They are very different in many aspects and in price as well. Also, once the surgery is done, the price will rise. After the surgery, several expenses have to be added. All of this adds up to the overall cost of the procedure. The surgeon’s fee varies from 4000 to 5000 $, liposuction will cost from 2500 to 7000 $, facility charges will require 700 $ and anesthesia from 500 to 700 $. All of this make the tummy tuck costs range from 3000 to 10000 $. Inform yourself about the surgeons available and if the surgery is too expensive for you, inquire about monthly payment schemes.
