Cost of abdominoplasty with liposuction

Costs will vary depending on geographic area, anesthesia/facility fees, and the amount of work required.  Obviously, a mini-tuck (which isn't the operation of choice for most patients, as you can read in many posts on this website) would be a shorter and less expensive procedure than the full abdominoplasty.  Scars do not disappear but the goal of the plastic surgeon is to place them appropriately and to use surgical technique to attempt to achieve the best possible scar.  The recovery time from a full abdominoplasty is a minimum of two weeks off from work with full recovery lasting longer.  I would recommend that you see several board certified plastic surgeons in your area to discuss surgical options and fees.

Cost and Recovery Time

Surgical fees will vary considerably across the country. Mini tummy tucks can generally range from $1000 to $5000 less than a full abdominoplasty due to less anesthesia and facility costs. Depending on the type of work you do, you can generally return to work in a week to 2 weeks post mini tummy tuck, and longer for a full abdominoplasty. Consult with 3 - 4 board certified plastic surgeons in your area to understand your treatment options and the fees appropriate for your area.
