For many patients considering abdominoplasty, one of their biggest concerns is how much a tummy tuck costs. There are several different factors that can affect the cost, ranging from the experience of the doctor to the procedure method that is used. If you have been thinking about undergoing a tummy tuck to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen as well as restructure and repair your abdominal muscles and fascia, be sure to schedule a consultation at Boulder Plastic Surgery and speak to our doctors about the pricing of your specific case.
The Average Cost of a Tummy Tuck
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost for abdominoplasty is approximately $5,241. However, this figure does not include the cost of the operating room facilities, anesthesia, or other expenses related to the surgery.
Here at Boulder Plastic Surgery, the price of a tummy tuck can range anywhere between $8,500 and $10,000. That estimate does take into account the cost of the surgeon as well as the anesthesia and operating room.
Other factors that may be incorporated into the price of abdominoplasty are:
- Prescriptions for related medications
- Additional medical tests such as an electrocardiogram or special lab tests if indicated
Although many patients make the price of a procedure their top concern, you should not sacrifice the safety and quality of the procedure for a cheaper price. It’s important to find a surgeon that is experienced, board certified, and that you also feel comfortable with. Dr. Kuisle and Dr. Hartley of Boulder Plastic Surgery are both members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in addition to having 50 years of combined experience in the field of plastic surgery.
