If you’re considering abdominoplasty, we know that the cost will be a significant factor when making your final decision. What you pay for abdominoplasty will depend on several variables, so we’re going to take a look at the average cost across the US to give you an idea of how much you may have to spend.
At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, our expert board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Ozan Sozer and Dr. Paul Phillips, are committed to high standards in cosmetic plastic surgery, and we provide affordable options.
Abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, recontours the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat to create a firmer, flatter abdomen. A tummy tuck also addresses weak or separated abdominal muscles.
How Much Is Abdominoplasty?
According to the American Society Of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the average cost of abdominoplasty is $6,154. This average cost does not include related expenses such as anesthesia fees, surgical facility fees, medical tests, and post-surgical garments.
If you need to add liposuction to your tummy tuck to maximize the results, this will also push up the final cost. Liposuction will remove any unwanted fat in the abdominal area. Schedule a consultation today to discuss your actual treatment costs with our highly experienced cosmetic surgeons.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Abdominoplasty
The final cost of your tummy tuck will also depend on the technique used and the extent of the procedure. Some patients only need a mini tummy tuck, while others require a more complex option to tighten and realign the abdominal muscles.
Where surgery is performed, the location of the practice and the experience of the plastic surgeon also affect the cost of abdominoplasty.
The best way to determine how much your abdominoplasty will cost is to schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery.
Is Abdominoplasty Right for You?
If you want to remove excess skin and fat from your abdomen to create a flatter, firmer tummy, you may be a good candidate for abdominoplasty. A tummy tuck is also a popular option for women with weak or separated abdominal muscles caused by pregnancy.
When you come in for a consultation, your surgeon will review your medical history to determine if you would be a good candidate for abdominoplasty.
What to Expect During Your Abdominoplasty Consultation
During your initial abdominoplasty consultation, you will see either Dr. Sozer or Dr. Phillips. Part of your surgical consultation will involve discussions about the different costs related to abdominoplasty. You will also receive an estimate to help you know how much you can expect to pay for surgery.
