#TummyTuckwithMuscleRepair Cost
The price is dependent on many factors - is it a mini, full or extended abdominoplasty such as a fleur de lis pattern where redundant skin is removed from the center as well as the bottom of the abdomen? Is it skin only or does it include tightening of the muscles (repair)? Will Liposuction also be necessary? Will it be performed in a hospital with an overnight stay or in an independent out-patient facility? Will a surgical assistant be needed? Will a board-certified anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist be used? Will an (anti) pain pump be used?
All of these factors influence the cost. In Orange County, the estimated range is $7000- $15,000+ depending on the variables above.

When it comes to cost of surgery, there may be many “variables” involved. The specific surgeon's credentials/experience level (or lack thereof), the specific geographic area you are looking at, the different operations available, the location of the procedure ( quality of surgery facility), type/quality of anesthesia provider… are some of the potential variables involved.  You will find some average costs of surgery listed on this website and on individual plastic surgeons' websites (including attached link) as well. Best wishes.

Any standard quote for a Tummy tuck would include muscle repair, which is an integral part of the procedure. Realself has average costs listed for your area.

In my area, I looked and see prices from $8000 to $15000, but it looks like the higher fees may have included other procedures. 

All the best.

Muscle Repair is Part of the Tummy Tuck!

  • The repair of your diastasis recti (rectus muscles) which become split with pregnancy, weight gain, and age should be part of your tummy tuck skin removal.

  • Ask your plastic surgeon if there is a difference in fee, but my bet is that it will all be part of the surgery and it should be done at the time of your tummy tuck strengthen your abdominal wall and flatten your tummy which removing the skin alone will not accomplish.

The cost for a tummy tuck will vary depending on where you live, and cost estimates are available on this site. Keep in mind that some practices will give an estimate based on the facility and anesthesia charge estimates, and some will have a 'fixed' price which is all inclusive so be sure to ask.

The costs of tummy tuck vary widely depending on the geographic area that you are in.  It may serve you well to see several board certified plastic surgeons to get an idea about costs in your area.  But I would advise you to choose your surgeon based on your level of comfort and your surgeon's understanding of your goals.  You can't put a price on your well being.  Good luck,
