What does an average panniculectomy cost?

Is there a price range for panniculectomy procedures or is there usually one standard amount? Are there price differences depending on whether a man or a woman has it done? After some research and getting feedback from a few sources, I think this is the procedure to suit my situation. All that remains is finding out what it will cost. I have heard there are some surgeons that offer financing as well. Is this true in general or more specific to each practice? Thank you.

Hi Maudie,

The average a patient can expect to pay for a panniculectomy in the United States is somewhere between $7,000 and $12,000.  In some cases health insurers will pick up the tab as there are basic, arguably essential health benefits to be derived from this surgery.
