Can I Afford Tummy Tuck Surgery?
Motherhood often is synonymous with sacrifice, which starts as soon as the pregnancy begins. The act of carrying a child and giving birth is beautiful, but this process also can change the body dramatically, often in unwanted ways. If you’re considering tummy tuck surgery, also called abdominoplasty, to help restore your body to a pre-pregnancy shape, you may be wondering how much such an operation will cost. Our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. James A. Matas, will explain all the fees associated with your unique treatment plan during your initial consultation. To help you plan your budget and determine if this method is right for you, we have provided a few details about what goes into the pricing.
With all surgeries, including tummy tuck surgery, the price will be determined by a combination of several factors, including the surgeon’s fee, the surgical facility fee, pre and post-operative care, compression garments, anesthesiology, geographic location, surgeon’s years of experience, cost of massage therapy, and potentially several other elements. When researching prices, it’s essential to find out if the quoted number is inclusive of all fees or if there are other hidden costs not mentioned. Dr. Matas will provide the total cost of services and break down the individual fees for you during the initial consultation.
Tummy tuck surgery can range dramatically in price depending on the technique used (mini tummy tuck or full tummy tuck) and the degree of treatment required. If you add on any procedures, such as liposuction—which is a popular complementary addition—that will also affect the final price. On average, an abdominoplasty can range anywhere from $6,000 to $10,000. As a result, many patients prefer to pay in installments. At Advanced Centre for Plastic Surgery, we offer financing through CareCredit™, a reputable lending agency, and we also accept cash and all major credit cards.
