What Will the Cost of a Tummy Tuck Include?
If you are considering a tummy tuck, there are several associated services that will factor into the overall cost of your procedure. Some of these include:
- Consultations and personalized care from Dr. Yee and her outstanding staff
- Use of our exceptional facilities, including our state-of-the art surgical suite and private recovery room
- Healing supplements and bandaging
- Nursing care and lab work
- In-house anesthesiologists’ care and related anesthesiology fees
Why Does the Cost Vary?
The price of your procedure can fluctuate drastically depending on the type of tummy tuck you need. To achieve the best possible results, some patients require more extensive surgery than others. A mini-abdominoplasty involves smaller incisions and less manipulation of weakened muscles and skin than a typical tummy tuck. Conversely, an extended abdominoplasty affects a larger area and requires greater surgical control. The extent of your tummy tuck is one major factor that affects costs. Another factor is whether or not you should have liposuction in combination with a tummy tuck.
Tummy tucks are very effective in tightening muscles and skin, and removing some excess fat. For patients who have considerable fat in the abdominal area, a liposuction procedure may need to be performed to achieve the toned results you desire. During your consultation, Dr. Yee can conduct a review of your personal health history and your cosmetic goals, and discuss which surgical methods are right for you. She can explain the risks, benefits, post-operative care, and costs of your procedure. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are also here to help you consider various payment options to cover the costs of your surgery. For patient convenience, we accept all major credit cards and CareCredit®.
