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.
