The cost of a mini tummy tuck like other cosmetic surgery varies considerably across the country and even in the same area. South Florida tends to have lower fees then more expensive areas such as New York or Los Angeles. We charge starting at $4000 + MD Anesthesia related costs for a mini tummy tuck. Since you can get quality work at lower costs, patients will travel from throughout the state, the country, and internationally to have surgery in South Florida.

To ensure that you are receiving quality work at the most cost effective prices, consult with board certified plastic surgeons that own their own nationally accredited facilities. The quality must be maintained at the highest level to maintain accreditation. The surgeons also have incentive to hire and train quality staff (to ensure that surgery is efficient and enjoyable), to ensure comfortable and private facilities (to encourage referral), and to eliminate waste (to ensure that these facilities can compete effectively).

Minituck vs full tummy tuck

Minituck is reserved for patients who only need improvement of the lower abdomen. Although liposuction of the upper abdomen if often performed at the same time, minimal improvement of the upper abdomen occurs. Full abdominoplasty will improve both upper and lower abdomen. Not all surgeons perform liposuction of the abdomen at same time as a full abdominoplasty. The cost depends on you area, in our area the cost is lower than the average posted on Real self.

The quoted average for RealSelf looks appropriate for my general community. I would say that most patients who think they are good candidates for a mini-TT often will be advised to have a full TT. A mini-TT will only treat the lower abdomen, below the navel. Excess skin and fat can be removed, and the abdominal wall tightened.

It does nothing above the navel, and if there are issues there, fixing just the lower half will create an imbalance that can be quite unattractive. 

Best advice is to seek a consultation with a plastic surgeon. RealSelf has listings of surgeons in your area. You should consider cross referencing the listings from the The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (plasticsurgery dot org). A listing in the ASPS website assures you that your surgeon is not only board certified,  but also is a member in good standing of the major plastic surgery organization in the U. S.

Thank your for your question, best wishes.
