I just started researching this subject, and I'm interested in finding out how much it would cost me to have a mini tummy tuck. Would you recommend having the surgery in another state to save money?

I had a mini tummy tuck, and I did a bunch of research before choosing my surgeon. You definitely shouldn't want a surgeon based on price alone, and I wouldn't recommend traveling a distance to have the surgery done unless it's for a highly recommended surgeon with outstanding experience. You should consider the additional expenses of staying overnight if you travel. The prices range between $4000 and $7000 for a mini tummy tuck, depending on the type of work that needs to be done. My tummy tuck was around $6000, and it included liposuction and some muscle repair. If you're worried about money, ask the surgeon if they have payment options available. I'm making payments on my tummy tuck, which made it fit into my budget.

Meeting your surgeon face-to-face is so important, rather than just doing online price checking. During your consultation, you can also ask to see before and after photos from previous patients who had a mini tummy tuck and a traditional tummy tuck completed. If you only have lower abdominal area belly fat, you may be able to get surprising results with the mini tuck. Your surgeon will be able to recommend options that will best suit your needs. The consultation left me so excited and full of anticipation. The operation and the results I achieved really did make my dreams come true.

The cost of this plastic surgery procedure depends on a variety of factors. I had my mini tummy tuck performed in New Jersey about two years ago. It cost about $7,000. Other locations across the country may charge a little bit more or a little less. Because the cost included all operating room, surgeon fees, and general anesthesia, there were no surprise charges. I will say that the surgeon you have performing the procedure can also affect the cost. More experienced board certified plastic surgeons may be more expensive. It's a good idea to research your doctors and find the one that makes you the most comfortable. While cost should be a factor in your decision, the quality of surgeon should be your priority. Because mini tummy tucks are considered cosmetic procedures, your insurance won't cover the cost.

The mini tuck only treats the area below the navel and above the pubic area and provides outstanding results. I had a mini tummy tuck done a year ago, and I shopped around for the best prices. I found that the prices fluctuated between $5000 and $7000 for a mini tummy tuck. I visited two different surgeons for a private consultation, and the prices vary based on the work that you need like liposuction and muscle repairs. The mini surgery also required a shorter recovery time when compared to a full tuck with a shorter incision. Most offices provide payment options through financing companies. I financed my tummy tuck and the payments are very affordable. I wouldn't suggest traveling to a specific cosmetic surgeon because it would be uncomfortable to fly or drive home immediately. I suggest that you find a local, board-certified surgeon who specializes in body contouring.

I am thrilled with the results after my mini tummy tuck last year. This surgical procedure can improve excess skin and excess fat from below the belly button down. I had some ugly scars from a C-Section that were also revised with this procedure. Mini Tummy Tuck Costs are anywhere from $3,500 to $10,000. The average costs are roughly $4,000 to $5,000. My plastic surgeon offered a great financing option that allowed me to pay off the majority of the fee like a loan. I would recommend comparing prices, but remember that the skill level of your surgeon might be worth a little additional cost to get the beautiful results most women want.

I shopped around before having my mini tummy tuck, and I thought about traveling to save some money. But I found that the prices were usually based on surgical expertise and experience rather than solely on the surgical procedure. I received estimates between $5,000 and $6,500 for a mini tummy tuck, and I realized that getting a price on the Internet or over the phone is not the same as seeing a surgeon for a private consultation. I recommend that you ask to see before and after photos from prior tummy-tuck patients and go in for a private consultation with a highly recommended surgeon. I'm thrilled with my results because my lower abdomen is now flat and firm, and I'm happy with the price I paid. I paid around $6000 for my mini tummy tuck surgery, and I make payments on it each month.

I had a mini tummy tuck completed because of my loose skin from pregnancy, and when I shopped around for the best price, I found that the rates ranged from $4,000 to $7,000. Prices varied based on the physician's experience and specific requirements for the surgery based on each patient's unique case. I wouldn't recommend traveling to another state based on price alone. You should choose a physician based on their expertise and knowledge of the mini tummy tuck procedure, not just pricing. My surgeon provided affordable payment options, and I'm making monthly payments on my new flat stomach. I would recommend that you ask for before and after photos from your surgeon's prior mini tummy tuck patients before just talking about pricing. I highly recommend having the mini tuck completed if you are in good health and have a minimal amount of belly fat.
