Cost of a mini tummy tuck in Las Vegas

Every region of the country and every city varies significantly when it comes to cost of cosmetic surgery. Las Vegas is unique in that we benefit from lower than average operative facility and anesthesia costs compared to nearby markets such as Los Angeles.

A mini tummy tuck involving just removal of lower abdominal skin and some adjacent liposuction would run about $3000-$6000. The lesser fee for an in-office procedure done under local anesthetic. The higher fee for the procedure performed at an outpatient surgery center and involving tightening of the rectus muscles.

Best of luck.

Mini Tummy Tuck Costs?

Thank you for the question. As you have seen the monetary costs of mini tummy tuck surgery varies greatly.

 

More importantly you should be aware of the limitations of the mini tummy tuck procedure;  otherwise, the cost of revisionary surgery should also be considered.

In my opinion, the mini tummy talk is an  operation that  produces very limited results and is very rarely indicated. It involves a shorter incision but does not address the majority of the abdominal wall issues present for most patients who present consultation. For example, the area of skin excised is quite small. The abdominal wall musculature is addressed below the umbilicus leaving the upper number wall potentially lax. The appearance of the umbilicus is not necessarily addressed sufficiently.

For most patients who have had pregnancies and/or weight loss a full abdominoplasty is necessary to achieve the desired results. Of course, there are downsides (including a longer scar and probably a longer recovery time) but for most patients the benefits outweigh the downsides. It is not unusual to see patients who've had mini tummy tuck  surgery present for  revisionary surgery.
It is important to work with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon to obtain advice (based on good ethics and judgment) to  improve your chances of a successful outcome and minimize the need for further surgery.

I hope this helps.

How Much Does a Mini Tummy Tuck Cost?

The range for abdominal contouring procedures ranges between $3,000 to over $7,000. These costs include the preoperative evaluation, surgery, anesthesia, operating room and post op visits. The price is determined by what procedures are required to achieve the result desired. This can include simple skin excision (low cost) to the need for skin excision with liposuction and muscle plication/repair. As you can imagine the more that needs to be done, the greater the time and therefore the higher the price. 

good luck.

thank you
