41-year-old female following mini tummy tuck
A mini tummy tuck, or mini abdominoplasty, is a body contouring procedure that removes a limited amount of excess skin and stubborn fat from the abdomen. The mini tummy tuck cost depends on a few factors, including the patient size and frame and the extent of liposuction required.
The bigger the patient, the longer the case will last. The longer time in the operating theater, the more expensive your tummy tuck will cost. Another factor determining the cost is if additional procedures, such as liposuction or any back contouring, are required.
For example, patients may also request high-definition liposuction performed on the flanks or love handles to avoid dog ears or request ab etching for a more defined and toned abdomen. Ab etching can be performed with a mini tummy tuck as there is limited undermining. To compare, a tummy tuck with muscle plication, or muscle tightening, cannot be done during a mini tummy tuck or at the same time as ab etching.
A mini tummy tuck will tighten a body with minimal to moderate skin redundancy and fat, so it is not out of the ordinary for many of the patients to take advantage of the time being under and tone and contour every part their body they request to have done.
As many patients opt to have 360 lipo and body contouring, the cost varies between each mini tummy tuck procedure. Cost is determined by facility fee, surgeon fee, and anesthesia fee. These fees typically have an hourly rate.
Determined by time and the additional procedures that a patient may wish to have performed in addition to having a mini tummy tuck. This mini tummy tuck cost range may begin at or around $8,000 but may increase up to $30,000 when ancillary procedures are added to your surgical plan. These surgical procedures may include the addition of breast surgery, back and buttocks surgery, or even the thighs.
