Tummy Tuck & Consultation Cost

The price of a tummy tuck will vary depending on many factors.  This procedure can vary between $3,000-$12,000 dollars, depending on the surgeon, where you choose to have the procedure done, and the amount of skin and fat that needs to be removed. Also, whether a consultation is free depends on the surgeon and his or her individual practice.

Cost of Tummy Tuck and Consultations

The total cost of a tummy tuck will vary among different plastic surgeons and also depends on the surgical facility where the surgery is performed.  The three parts of the total fee include the surgeon's fee, the surgical facility charge, and the anesthesiologist's fee.  All of these can vary depending on the extent of the surgery and the time it takes.  In my practice, I would estimate a general ballpark range of $5,000 for so-called mini tuck to an upper limit of $8,000-$9,000.  This is a total package estimate, including surgical facility charges, anesthesiologist fees, and surgeon's fees.  Different doctors have different policies regarding the consultation.  I charge a modest fee, which is subtracted from the cost of surgery if you proceed but there are some doctors who don't.

The consultation is Free.

In my practice the consultation is free. A standard tummy tuck costs about $7500 for everything. I hope this helps.

Cost for a Tummy Tuck

You will find that fees vary among surgeons depending on geographical area and expertise of the surgeon. Many surgeons offer a consultation at no cost but again this will vary between surgeons. Be sure to see two or three  Board Certified Plastic Surgeons and pick one more by how comfortable you feel than the cost. Look at before and after pictures and read reviews that are posted online. Good luck.

Tummy tuck / Mini Tummy Tuck /Abdominoplasty/ Liposuction/ Reverse Abdominoplasty/Tummy Tuck Revision

I appreciate your question.

Cost varies by geographic location, surgeon expertise, OR time, anesthesia, length of procedure etc. I would recommend that you go to The American Society of Plastic Surgery website and look for a list of board certified plastic surgeons in your area. You can call their offices in advance and ask for quotes prior to scheduling consultations.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Best of luck!
