Thank you for asking. An abdominoplasty or tummy tuck can vary based on the facility fee, anesthesia cost, and plastic surgeon's fee. This is often regional. Cost can also depend on the level of treatment. For instance, a mini tuck (much less commonly done) is less than a full abdominoplasty. It is hard to say online because your region is specific. See several board-certified plastic surgeons in your area to get an idea of pricing. Best wishes!

The price of a tummy tuck can vary greatly depending on if it is a mini tuck or involves liposuction. Other factors include whether skin needs to be removed, and how much (e.g, lots of excess skin after major weight loss). So, it would be in the range of $4,000 to $11,000.
