However, when contemplating tummy tuck surgery it’s necessary to think about the financial cost since it is not covered by medical insurance. During your initial consultation with the plastic surgeon be sure to ask – How much does a tummy tuck cost.

A tummy tuck is a procedure that is done to tighten and slim the abdomen.
How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost In Newport Beach?
There are several variables that will impact the cost of a tummy tuck. These include the surgeon’s fees, facility fees, anesthesia fees, and the extent of the procedure.
Some patients require a full tummy tuck to remove excess skin and fat in the upper and lower abdomen, and tighten the abdominal muscles. The incision for this procedure is usually made just below the bikini line. However, patients that need to remove a smaller amount of abdominal skin and fat can benefit from a mini-tummy tuck.
A mini-tummy tuck is beneficial for patients that have relaxation in the lower abdomen only, as it addresses excess skin and fat in the area below the belly button.
The cost of a full tummy tuck in Newport Beach ranges from $8,000-$11,000, while a mini-tummy tuck can cost anywhere from $4,000-$7,000.
Patients are advised to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon to get an exact cost.
