When considering a cosmetic procedure, price is always a big factor that comes into play. We all want to make sure we’re getting the best bang for our buck and don’t end up breaking the bank on elective surgery. Let’s talk about the nation’s average price for a tummy tuck, what you can expect to see in your overall bill and how Dr. Leverett and his staff make paying for your procedure as painless as possible.
How Much is the Average Tummy Tuck?
According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of surgeon’s fees for a tummy tuck in 2018 was about $6,253. Keep in mind, this is an average cost and does not include extra fees that may be included in the overall price of your procedure. A more realistic range for a tummy tuck, including anesthesia and facility fees, can range anywhere between $7,500 and $13,000. This all depends on the surgeon you choose, your geographic location and the extent of the surgery needed to produce your desired results.
What’s Included in the Price of My Tummy Tuck?
We mentioned earlier that the average cost of a tummy tuck in 2018 didn’t factor in any extra fees that may be associated with your tummy tuck. When paying for your tummy tuck surgery, you will likely see the following fees adding up to your total procedure cost.
- Surgeon’s fees. This fee goes straight to paying your plastic surgeon. This fee will often increase with the surgeon’s amount of experience and expert credentials.
- Anesthesia fees. This fee goes towards paying for your anesthesia medication and the anesthesiologist who will be administering the medication during your surgery.
- Facility fees. This fee goes towards the operating room, supplies, and pre- and post-operation nursing staff required for your tummy tuck procedure.
- Post-surgical garments. Following your tummy tuck, you will be provided a compression garment to aid in a smooth recovery and optimal results.
