Are you interested in a tummy tuck surgery? Concerned about the cost? Here’s some valuable information for you:

First, you need to understand all of the risks involved with having surgery. It’s not something you should take lightly. There is the potential for scarring, skin abnormalities, abdominal discomfort, and on rare occasions, death.

If you have decided you want to go through with the surgery you should speak with a plastic surgeon. He or She will then determine if you are a suitable candidate for the surgery. That’s a good thing since you don’t want to take on a tummy tuck cost and then come to find out you’re not able to have the surgery.

The cost of tummy tuck surgery may vary depending on the individuals needs. Once you have decided you’re a candidate for a tummy tuck procedure, you can then discuss your tummy tuck cost.

There is a range of mini tummy tuck procedures designed to treat a spectrum of individual needs. In consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon, the choice of procedure will be made based on the your anatomic features and desired outcome. Again, the tummy tuck cost will depend on what you decide to have done.

Tummy tucks have one thing in common--they tighten the abdominal skin. But there are two key differences between the various tummy tuck surgery procedures. First, the incision lengths vary depending on the amount of skin to be tightened and removed, and the abdominal muscles may need to be tightened if they have excess laxity. This too will determine the total tummy tuck cost.

The length of the incision is determined by the amount of loose skin that is to be removed. The incision lengths vary from as short as six inches, which is called a mini tummy tuck, to as long as the entire circumference of the waist, which is commonly referred to as a body lift. The most common incision length runs from hip to hip concealed beneath the bikini line, which is referred to as the basic tummy tuck. The body lift amounts to the highest tummy tuck cost.

In addition to removing loose skin, localized fat deposits can also be removed during your tummy tuck. It is recommended, however, that you be as close as possible to your goal weight before having the procedure. In necessary, liposuction may be performed in combination with the tummy tuck to remove additional fat around the abdomen or to treat other areas such as the hips and flanks. But this will increase the tummy tuck cost
