How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a tummy tuck is about $6,253. This stat is from 2018, so patients should expect a small increase. This average cost does not include surgical fees, anesthesia, and prescription medications.
The cost of your abdominoplasty can vary from this average based on a number of factors, including your location, your plastic surgeon’s experience, and other items.
The best way to learn how much your tummy tuck will cost is to schedule a consultation with your board certified plastic surgeon.
Can a Tummy Tuck Be Covered by Insurance?
A lot of patients ask if a tummy tuck can be covered by their medical insurance. The answer is almost always no, as abdominoplasty is largely seen as a cosmetic procedure. However, the rare exception can be made for patients who may experience other health problems (like infections) as a result of any sagging skin and damaged abdominal walls.
Don’t Just Look at the Costs
While the cost of your procedure can play an important role in your final decision, it’s important to make your selection based on your plastic surgeon’s credentials, experience, and board certifications. A cheap abdominoplasty procedure may be good for your wallet, but it may not be great for your results!
