Mini tummy tuck

It really depends on who is doing your surgery, how much tissue is being removed, whether you need liposuction with it, and  whether it can be done under local anesthesia.  This will range between 3500 to 6000 in Southern California.

  • Mini-TumyTuck cost factors vary significantly for a number of good reasons: Prices vary greatly because the surgery itself encompasses a wide range of techniques that can be performed to different extents. My recommendation is to first find the most qualified surgeons where you want the surgery performed that are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery you trust, then compare prices between them. See the below link on suggestions on how to find the most qualified plastic surgeon for your procedure. General Factors that influence the price of plastic surgery include:

  • 1. Location - Will it be performed in a hospital with an overnight stay, an independent out- patient facility or a doctor’s office? Geographical location also has a significant influence. RealSelf has average charges for most areas of the USA.

  • 2. Type of Anesthesia - local, IV sedation or General Anesthesia? Will a board certified anesthesiologist, nurse anesthetist, or an RN be used?

    3. Experience and training of your surgeon. The best and longest trained is most often a plastic surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. See below link for helpful hints on surgeon selection

    4. Length and Complexity of Surgery - how difficult will your surgery be and how long it will take, etc. Will other complementary procedures also be also performed during the same surgery?

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.

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.

Compare costs very carefully

Often it is not the best approach to find the cheapest plastic surgeon. Does the surgeon specialize in this procedure? What are their credentials? How long have they been in practice? What percentage of their practice is cosmetic surgery? How many of these surgeries have they performed? Do they use the latest techniques? What do their results look like? Do they have photos to show of their work? Do they provide follow-up themselves, or will you only see the nurses (or even just an assistant)? Are they available by phone for an emergency or does one of their staff answer after-hour calls? What is the impression you get from their office and staff? Are they professional and informative? Do they know what they are talking about? You need to ask yourself all of these questions.

When comparing quotes from different doctors, check to make sure that the costs you are quoted are for the same thing! Check to see what type of anesthesia and facility you are going to be treated in. If the total price is lower but you are not going to receive proper anesthesia from a board certified anesthesiologist, then are you getting a better deal (or inferior treatment)? If the facility is not a certified outpatient surgery center but is an in-office procedure room, is the difference in safety worth the cost reduction? If the doctor is not a board certified plastic surgeon, is that worth the discount in the fees? I would say the answer to all three of these questions is no!

Assuming you are talking about a board certified plastic surgeon with plenty of experience in abdominoplasty, you need to find someone who you trust. This is your body, make sure you are making decisions based on the quality of care, the experience and training of the doctor, and proven results! Cost alone should not be the deciding

The prices can vary from state to state, and from city to city. Our costs, including the board certified plastic surgeon's fees, board certified anesthesiologist's fees, operating room, labs, scar gel, vitamins, and follow-up at 1 day, 5 days, 7 days, 9 days, 14 days, 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, 6 months, and every year after that forever, are around $7400. If you need more follow-up appointments, those are free as well.
