The Average Cost of Tummy Tuck Procedures

Considering having a tummy tuck is a long process. First, you have to think if you want to have a surgical procedure. Then, you consult with your doctor to see if a tummy tuck is a good option for you and your health goals. Finally, when you decide that you want to go through with it, you must consider the total cost of tummy tuck procedures.

Average Cost of Tummy Tuck

The average price of a tummy tuck runs at $8,000-9,000. The procedure can reach up to $18,000 when you include all the additional costs. Along with the base cost of the actual tummy tuck, these additional costs can include the fees associated with:

  • Type of anesthesia
  • Hospital or facility where the procedure takes place
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Prescriptions and medication post-surgery
  • Follow-up visits

Dr. Cernero and his staff are passionate about helping patients return to health and be confident in themselves. We dedicate our time to doing everything we can to help you achieve your goals. That’s why the cost of tummy tuck with Cernero Surgery & Aesthetics is half the price of other surgeons in the Texoma area.

While the cost of the procedure is far less than other surgeons, we realize it still might not be in the budget for a lot of our patients. To relieve the pressure of the cost, we accept payment plans and loans through Care Credit and Prosper Healthcare Lending. Learn more about your payment options here.

Why It’s Worth It

A tummy tuck can be used in a few different situations, most commonly including:

  • As a follow-up to bariatric surgery
  • To remove stretch marks and scars after pregnancy
  • To remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles

You may be a good candidate for the procedure, but have concerns about the cost. According to RealSelf, 97% of patients reported that it’s worth it. Not only will you feel more confident in your health, a tummy tuck can increase your happiness in your appearance and improve back pain and urinary incontinence.
