Tummy tuck cost estimate in Minneapolis.


My office will be happy to provide you with an EXACT cost (not just an estimate), since you were kind enough to include a photo that allows me to tell you to ask Sarah (my Director of Patient Services; ask for her specifically) for a cost quote for "Tummy tuck; 2 1/2 hours of OR time."

Sarah can also send you some information about me, our office staff and accredited surgical facility, and arrange for a complimentary consultation with me at a convenient time for you.

When you compare prices from various plastic surgeons' offices, make sure you are receiving TOTAL costs, and ask if any of the quoted prices are estimates, or if any bills will be sent to you separately (like anesthesia). This sometimes alters the cost quote significantly. Also ask if re-operation for bleeding is included, or if that is a separate cost. Finally, ask about touch-up surgery or re-do operations--what is the policy on this and who pays for what?

Also, remember "cheap" is not best. One of my favorite aphorisms is "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten." Nowhere is this more true than in cosmetic surgery!

Dear mb55404, I am partners with Dr Tholen and I would also be more than happy to see you to discuss the options available to you after listening to your needs and expectations. All our consultations are free of charge. Prices will vary in the Twin Cities but we charge the same price for the same procedures. After taking into account board certification, experience and patient results/satisfaction. Make sure that your surgeon listens to what you want and understands your needs. Good luck and perhaps we will meet.
