How much does a tummy tuck cost?

The average cost of a tummy tuck is $6,092, according to 2019 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This average cost is only part of the total price – it does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses. Please consult with your plastic surgeon's office to determine your final fee.

A surgeon's fee for tummy tuck surgery will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used and the geographic office location.

Most health insurance plans do not cover tummy tuck surgery or its complications, but many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.

Tummy tuck costs may include:

  • Anesthesia fees
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Medical tests
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Surgeon's fee

When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for a tummy tuck, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
