How Much Does A Tummy Tuck Cost In Atlanta?

Posted November 15, 2021 in Tummy Tuck

Motherhood brings many joys, but it, unfortunately, comes along with a less-than-taut tummy for some women. Even if you put your best foot forward and follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly, there are some cases where the stomach does not snap back to what it once was. Where a six-pack once was is now home to loose skin, and that cute belly button of yours may be replaced with a stretched-out one. No matter what bothers you about your stomach, a tummy tuck can help.

Because the surgery is both time and labor-intensive, a tummy tuck ranks up there as one of the more expensive cosmetic procedures. But there’s a reason why tummy tucks come with a pretty high price tag–and it’s a good reason, too. Patients should never view plastic surgery with the intention of cutting corners to save a few bucks, and this is one procedure where expert skill and a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience are important.

At Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta, our focus is to consistently deliver a stellar patient experience with unparalleled results. Patient satisfaction is our top priority. Our face and body surgery services help patients obtain their goals. By custom tailoring each procedure to every patient’s body and aging concerns, we allow them to achieve their desires while they age in the most natural way possible.

WHAT DETERMINES THE PRICE OF A TUMMY TUCK?

The cost of a tummy tuck varies by patient. Since no two patients stomachs’ are identical, the price of a tummy tuck usually varies from person to person. The details of your procedure and if additional procedures are necessary (this is typically the case with a tummy tuck) will determine the final price. 

Besides the costs of the surgery itself, there is also your surgeon’s fee, which includes the time it will take for him to perform the procedure. Surgeons with excellent reputations and waitlists typically charge more for a tummy tuck than a below-average surgeon. Also, your surgeon’s location could contribute to a higher price tag, primarily if he operates in a large city.

Additionally, fees are built into your overall price to cover the costs associated with your surgeon’s operating team, anesthesia, facility costs, and pre-and post-surgery materials, dressings, sutures, and specialty post-surgical garments. Any prescriptions and medications are usually not included in the overall price. 

After your consultation, we will provide a detailed cost estimate that includes the applicable fees for Dr. Brothers and his surgical staff, as well as any necessary medical supplies and your follow-up care. The cost of your tummy tuck procedure at the Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta is also dependent on the length of time the surgery will take and the degree of difficulty that the surgery presents.

Remember that unlike other surgical procedures like breast reduction, which your health insurance may cover, the patient fully pays for a tummy tuck because it is an elective procedure. 

Any necessary revision or future procedures will require additional charges. Make sure to discuss this with your surgeon during your consultation.

THE DIFFERENT WAYS TO PAY FOR YOUR TUMMY TUCK SURGERY

There are many different ways to pay for a tummy tuck, even if you haven’t saved up or budgeted for it as part of your annual spending.

The cost of your procedure at the Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta is dependent on the details of the surgery and the length of time the surgery will take. Also, additional procedures, like liposuction, commonly performed with a tummy tuck, need to be accounted for. During your consultation, Dr. Brothers’ fees will be discussed, including all costs associated with his nurses and operating team plus any post-surgery dressings and special garments. You will leave the appointment with a written estimate.

In addition to accepting cash, checks, and most major credit cards, Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta also offers CareCredit, a popular financing option available exclusively for plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures. CareCredit offers low monthly payment options and no up-front costs or prepayment penalties. Financing your surgery is an easy and convenient way to pay for your procedure.

Some banking institutions allow for personal loans that offer interest rates similar to those of a credit card.
