Removing pseudo-bursa after tummy tuck

Thank you for your question about your tummy tuck.

  • First you need to return to your surgeon or find a new surgeon for an ultrasound to see if you even have a pseudo-bursa.
  • The cost cannot be predicted as it is not a standard procedure.
  • If you trust your original surgeon, s/he is likely to charge you less than a new surgeon.

Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes
