Our patients have shared with us that one of their biggest deterrents for getting plastic surgery is the cost associated with their procedure of choice. When it comes to a tummy tuck, you’re really getting a good bang for your buck! There are so many benefits included in the prices of your treatment and we’re going to break them down for you today.
How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?
According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a tummy tuck in 2018 was about $6,253. Sound a little low? That’s because it is. This price does not include any of the extra fees that are usually added to the total cost of your tummy tuck. A more realistic range to expect for your tummy tuck is closer to $7,000 to $12,000.
What’s Included in the Price of a Tummy Tuck?
Like we said before, the cost of your tummy tuck includes more than meets the eye. Let’s break down what’s included in your tummy tuck’s overall cost. • Surgeon’s fees. This fee goes straight to your surgeon for performing your tummy tuck. The more qualified your surgeon is, the higher the fee. This isn’t something you want to skimp on. • Anesthesia fees. This fee goes towards paying for your anesthesia medication and the anesthesiologist required to administer the medication for your procedure. • Facility fees. This fee goes towards the operating room, surgical materials, and nursing staff required to perform your procedure. • Post-operative garments. This fee goes towards the specially designed compression garments Dr. Lee will give you to wear for the first few weeks following your procedure. • Follow-up appointments. This fee isn’t always added to the total cost of your surgery, so it’s a good idea to ask your doctor about these fees beforehand. If they’re not included now, they can sneak up on you later.
Paying for Your Tummy Tuck
When it comes to paying for your tummy tuck procedure, the biggest thing you need to keep in mind is that you’re not alone. Dr. Lee provides you with two different resources to help you pay for your tummy tuck surgery, or any other cosmetic procedure you choose to undergo.
With financing options available through CareCredit® and Alphaeon®, you can break down your total bill into smaller, more manageable monthly payments. Your financing options can vary from procedure to procedure, fitting your financial situation at the time. With low monthly payment options and no up-front costs, financing is a popular choice with our patients.
