For a Bigger Person at 190lbs. at 5'7", What is the Average Range in Cost for a Tummy Tuck

I wanted to know what is the average cost based on my description for a full tummy tuck? I am 5'7" and weigh 190lbs. I have had a weight loss of 35lbs. after having a baby. I live in Alabama and am trying to get a ideal price range of how much a tummy tuck would cost for someone like me. I know there is no exact price,basically I am trying to find out round about price so that will also help me choose a surgeon because I am going to go ahead and try to schedule my surgery within 3 months.

Prices for tummy tucks vary among plastic surgeons in a given community as well as in different areas around the country. If you would like to have surgery performed in your general vicinity, your best bet is to schedule a few consultations with reputable board certified plastic surgeons, figure out who you are comfortable with and what the different prices are. Trying to obtain the lowest price may very well not get you the best result though paying top dollar also doesn't guarantee the results.

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           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?
