Tummy Tuck Cost
Because tummy tucks often require liposuction as well, the cost of the procedure can vary greatly based on the weight of the patient, and the severity of the excess skin that needs to be corrected. According to DocShop.com, procedures can range between $3000 and $12,000. The only way for patients to get personalized, accurate cost information is to come in for a free consultation with one of our expert surgeons.
Since it is not covered by medical insurance in most cases, it’s only natural for Beverly Hills Physicians patients to have some concerns about tummy tuck cost.
Tummy Tuck Cost Factors
Two significant cost factors that can make the cost of one patient's procedure vary from another's are:
- Amount of Skin Removed - While some patients will only need a small amount of excess skin removed to get them to a flat belly, others, especially those who have lost a significant amount of weight, have a great deal more skin that needs to be removed.
- Use of Liposuction - The the primary purpose of a tummy tuck is to remove skin, rather than fat, removing fat is often a part of it, and the degree of liposuction needed can vary from patient to patient.
The good news is that, believe it or not, cost rarely determines whether or not patients receive plastic surgery. Patients who ask “How much is a tummy tuck?” are often surprised to learn that the price is significantly less than expected. That’s not all, Beverly Hills Physicians is happy to work with patients on a budget to find a plan that will put their tummy tuck cost well within reach.
Of course, if you’re interested in obtaining a tummy tuck, that likely means you are dealing with unpleasant folds of loose skin that can follow a rapid and large weight loss, such as following childbirth or weight loss surgery. Tummy tucks can sometimes deal with folds of skin that may be so large that they are actually physically uncomfortable.
