A Look into How Your Local Surgical Practice Can Determine Cost for a Tummy Tuck


Learn More About Tummy Tuck Surgery in Orange County CA Area
Formally called an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a very popular cosmetic procedure and could be an excellent option for those in the Newport Beach area who are seeking a surgical option to remove unwanted abdominal budges, fat pockets, and loose skin. When you gain weight and then lose it via a healthy diet and exercise, you may not regain your original contours, in which case a tummy tuck may be perfect for you. One question many patients of Dr. Thuan Nguyen at Orange County Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery Center have is how much it will cost. Let us look at some factors that will play into determining this.

Breaking Down the Cost

When you decide to undergo a tummy tuck, part of the consultation you will have before setting an appointment for the procedure will be the cost. Many practices will provide you with a breakdown of the cost via an itemized list to be informed and be able to ask any questions. It has been estimated that, on average, the total cost of a tummy tuck will range from $7,400 to $17,650, which includes the:

  • Surgeon fee
  • Anesthetist fee
  • Facility fee
  • Follow-up visit costs

One factor that will undoubtedly play into the total cost is how complicated your particular case will be. The more complicated the procedure, the longer it will take, increasing costs.

How You Can Pay for a Tummy Tuck

The insurance coverage will likely not be part of the equation when it comes to covering the costs associated with your tummy tuck. Insurance companies will not cover a tummy tuck most of the time, although this is not always the case. In some cases, when a tummy tuck is deemed medically necessary (as opposed to an elective), your insurance may cover the cost. You will want to check with your insurance provider. If your insurance company does not cover the cost of your tummy tuck, you will have to pay for it out of pocket, so make sure and ask your cosmetic surgical practice if they offer financing options or payment plans of any kind.
