What is a Tummy Tuck and how much do tummy tucks cost ?

On average, the cost of a tummy tuck procedure in Los Angeles can range between $8,000 to $20,000, depending on the severity and individual needs when done by a highly reputable and experienced doctor. Dr. Peter B Fodor, who has done more than 20,000 tummy tuck procedures and is double board-certified, explains more about tummy-tuck costs and what prospective patients should consider when choosing a doctor.

What are the top factors that affect tummy tuck pricing?
  • Amount of skin to be removed - While some patients only need a small amount of skin removed, there are those that require a great more deal of excess skin to be dealt with.
  • Use of liposuction - A tummy tuck is primarily removal of skin, but removing fat is part of the process. The degree of liposuction needed varies from patient to patient.
  • Where you’ll have the tummy tuck done - As with most medical procedures, the geographical location will impact the cost of the service.
  • Costs also vary due to the needs of the operation for example - most tummy tuck procedures are done in an operation room, so OR fees are involved, with an anesthesiologist involved as well as the duration of the surgery and the level of after-care involved. Surgery is not the end - the best doctors always ensure that patients adhere to follow-up visits so they can obtain the safest and best results.

Tummy tucks are highly complex procedures - while it always involves the removal of excess skin in the patient’s midsection, it also involves the removal of stubborn fat deposits, tightening and reconnecting of stretched and improving weakened abdominal muscles. It  would be best to have a consultation with a board-certified and very experienced surgeon who has done hundreds, if not thousands of tummy-tuck operations before you get the procedure done. 

If you’re looking to have a flatter and more toned stomach, you should consider getting a tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty. This procedure can restore your trimmed physique after pregnancy or significant weight loss. 

Above all else, it’s important you get the procedure done by a very experienced and board certified plastic surgeon you can trust. You don’t want your tummy tuck or abdominoplasty botched by someone who’s inexperienced or has only a handful of procedures completed. Your tummy tuck is an investment and is considered a major procedure.  So of course, you want to protect your investment by entrusting it with an expert surgeon with a lot of relevant experience.
