What is the Average Cost of a Tummy Tuck?

If you have been struggling with excess skin and fat in your abdominal area, you may be considering a tummy tuck. Dr. Scott Brenman offers personalized tummy tuck procedures to help you feel confident in your body.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightens the underlying muscles. Also called abdominoplasty, this popular procedure results in a smoother, flatter abdomen. It is often recommended for those who have lost a significant amount of weight or have had multiple pregnancies, which can leave excess skin and stretch marks in the abdominal area.

How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?

The cost of a cosmetic procedure like a tummy tuck varies based on several factors, such as your geographic location, the surgeon’s experience, and the extent of the procedure. A tummy tuck is often performed alongside liposuction for optimal results, and Dr. Brenman will customize your surgery to your specific needs. For this reason, prices may vary from patient to patient. The average national cost of a tummy tuck is $6,154. This estimate does not include all associated costs, however, such as facility fees and anesthesia. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brenman at the Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery to get a more accurate quote. 

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is designed to give you a slimmer, more contoured abdomen. Aside from the aesthetic benefits of a flatter and smoother stomach, a tummy tuck can also improve posture and alleviate back pain caused by weak abdominal muscles.  Many patients feel more comfortable and confident after a tummy tuck. Abdominoplasty may be particularly beneficial after childbirth to repair the abdominal muscles or after significant weight loss to remove excess skin.

What to Expect After a Tummy Tuck

The recovery time for a tummy tuck varies depending on the extent of the procedure. Most patients can return to work within two to three weeks, but you should avoid strenuous activities for at least a month.  Patients often see immediate improvements from their tummy tuck, but these results will become more apparent as your body heals. As the swelling subsides, you’ll see your full results in six months to a year. Your tummy tuck results will be long-lasting with a healthy lifestyle.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

Ideal candidates for a tummy tuck are non-smokers who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the procedure’s outcome. They should also be at a stable weight and have excess skin and fat in the abdominal area. During a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Brenman will discuss your goals and evaluate your condition to help you determine if a tummy tuck is right for you.
