Tummy tuck costs can vary significantly, depending on the type of tummy tuck - mini, standard, extended, or circumferential body lift.  In the San Francisco Bay Area these costs can range from $5,000 to $15,000.  Many practices, including my own, offer free consultations in which the cost of the procedure is discussed.  Best wishes.

Cost of in uncomplicated abdominoplasty is $5000-$7000 all-inclusive.

There is some variability in price quotes due to the fact that some abdominoplasties are more extensive than others. In my practice we perform the operation in suitable patients in a state licensed fully accredited facility. Patients are encouraged to spend the night accompanied by an overnight nurse. All of this usually can be taken care of for around $5-$7000.

             A tummy tuck may cost $6500 on the low end.  The hernia repair can be performed at the same time in most cases.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of tummy tucks each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty Costs

Hello. The costs for Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty will vary depending on what region of the US you live in and the physician doing the surgery. The cost can usually be broken down in to the surgical fee, the operating room fee, and the anesthesia fee. As the OR and anesthesia often charge by the hour, these fees can vary depending on how long it takes to do the procedure. Someone very petite with no fat (just loose skin) will take less time than someone larger. Total costs in the Bay Area probably range from  under 10K to close to 15K or 20K. Depending on your insurance plan, repair of a hernia at the same time may be covered as well as some or all of the OR and anesthesia costs. This can vary widely. Hope this answers your question. See a board certified plastic surgeon in your area with an expertise in body contouring and tummy tucks for more individualized information. Good luck!

The average quoted nationally on this website is $7900. That would be on the low side where I practice. RealSelf does have geographic listings that your can review.

A hernia repair can usually be done at the same setting, depending on its location and size. All the best.
