Tummy Tuck Cost

What does a Tummy Tuck Cost? There are several components to a tummy tuck surgery that determines the tummy tuck cost.  First, there are fees associated with the facility and operating room.  These are fixed costs that cover where your surgery is actually performed.  Next, there is the anesthesia fee.  This fee covers the presence of your anesthesia professional, usually a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) to be present during your entire procedure while ensuring your comfort and safety.  The next fee is the surgeon’s fee.  This cost covers the plastic surgeon’s time in performing your procedure, as well as approving you for the procedure and taking care of you as you heal.  Finally, the last fee covers things like post-surgery garments, prescriptions for medication and laboratory tests before your procedure.  As you can see, there are many fees that determine the final tummy tuck price. How much is a Tummy Tuck? The average tummy tuck cost in 2018 according to Realself.com was $8150.  This is an average fee that covers all types of patients from all over the country.  The other variable to consider is how difficult the procedure will be.  Patients with more skin, more fat and previous procedures will add to operative time and the complexity of the procedure.  This of course, will lead to a higher tummy tuck cost.

Tummy Tuck Surgery Tummy tucks are popular procedures for patients who recently lost weight or went through childbirth only to find a pack of excess skin in the tummy area. There are several treatments designed to produce skin tightening, but when there is a drastic need like in many tummy tuck patients, non-surgical treatments are not enough to resolve the issue. There are some serious downsides to the traditional tummy tuck. The procedure is designed to reduce excess fat and skin as well as tighten the underlying muscles in the area. It is a procedure that addresses several issues but in doing so, produces a significant scar that generally spans from hip to hip and many patients are not comfortable with the size of the scar. Mini Tummy Tuck The mini tummy tuck, offered at Beleza Medspa, is a good alternative for patients who are not candidates for a full tummy tuck but need the skin tightening that comes with it. Generally, mini tummy tuck candidates have less skin to remove and do not need the structural work that is done in conjunction with a full tummy tuck. The benefits of the mini tummy tuck include a smaller, less noticeable and often lower scar. Another benefit is that the procedure can be done without a general anesthetic using an injected numbing solution and a mild oral sedative. Because only the skin is affected and the muscle under is left alone, most mini tummy tuck patients do not report high levels of pain during recovery. Liposuction Tummy Tuck Many SmartLipo patients are opting in to a mini tummy tuck to enhance the effects of the SmartLipo procedure. Because SmartLipo addresses some skin laxity but cannot improve the look of drastically saggy skin, the mini tummy tuck is added to fill that need. Laser Tummy Tuck However, many patients can have their loose skin addressed alone with a Laser Tummy Tuck.  The heat produced form the Smartlipo Laser can lead to a great deal of skin tightening.  The procedure can be repeated for even greater results.  The tummy tuck scar can be avoided altogether. When added to a SmartLipo procedure, the mini tummy tuck does not drastically raise the price and is a great option for moms who want to improve the look of saggy skin left over from pregnancy or patients who lost weight and want to show it off. Some patients are not ideal candidates for the mini tummy tuck and would benefit from Smart Lipo or a full tummy tuck. The best way to determine if the mini tummy tuck is right for you is to come in for a free consultation so our staff can examine the area and make the best recommendation for your needs.

How Much Tummy Tuck?

Healthy weight loss can be great for your health, self-esteem, and appearance. But for some, shedding pounds quickly can lead to an excess of loose skin. Pregnancy and child birth can also lead to weakened abdominal muscles and loose abdominal skin. The most popular surgical option for dealing with the issues of excess skin from quick weight loss is an abodminoplasty, or a tummy tuck.  How much tummy tuck? What is a Tummy Tuck? A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles. In other words, a tummy tuck allows the rest of your body to catch up with your rapid weight loss. When an overweight individual loses a lot of weight–50 pounds or more–sometimes they reach their healthy weight, but are still not satisfied with their body. The sagging skin can still be detrimental to the individual’s self-esteem. For an individual who has lost a great deal of weight, getting a tummy tuck is often the last step of obtaining the slim figure that he or she feels comfortable in. If you think that a tummy tuck may be right for you, contact the professionals at Beleza Medical Spa today. How Much Tummy Tuck? The tummy tuck cost depends on several factors.  The first is the amount of skin and abdominal muscle looseness that needs to be repaired.  Some patients have a small amount of excess skin that needs to be removed, while other can have a large amount.  Some patients have a great deal of stretch marks that require more skin removal.  The factors determine the operative time and hence the tummy tuck cost is different for every patient.  Other tummy tuck price factors include the facility fee, anesthesia fee and the surgeon’s fee.  See some plastic surgery prices here.…
