Are you looking to have tummy tuck surgery, but want to know how much it costs in 2019? A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a popular body contouring procedure among men and women that want to restore a tighter, firmer abdomen. But what’s involved in a tummy tuck, and what factors influence the cost.
What happens during a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck is done to remove excess skin and fat in the abdominal area. During the procedure the surgeon will make an incision along the crease of the bikini line, and then remove extra skin and fatty tissue. The underlying muscles are also tightened if necessary (learn more).
How Much Does A Tummy Tuck Cost In 2019?
According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a tummy tuck in 2018 was $6,253, and this is expected to change very little in 2019. However, there are several factors that will affect your price including the complexity of the procedure, experience of the surgeon, and location of the practice.
- Complexity of the procedure: There are different types of tummy tuck procedures including a standard tummy tuck, mini-tummy tuck, and an extended tummy tuck. The requirements are not the same for each surgery, so costs will differ.
- Experience of the surgeon: Abdominoplasty performed by an experienced board certified plastic surgeon typically costs more.
- Location of the practice: Practices in large cities are generally more expensive because of the higher cost of living.
