A tummy tuck is an option commonly performed surgery that tightens weak or stretched muscles and removes excess skin thus creating a flat and toned abdomen. This procedure helps to tighten the loose skin and fat of the abdominal wall, particularly around the navel, through the controlled removal and elevation of skin and fat in this area. The navel is reinserted into the skin after the tightening procedure. It is possible to diminish the appearance of stretch marks from the lower abdomen, but permanent removal of all stretch marks is not guaranteed following tummy tuck surgery. A thorough discussion with a cosmetic surgeon is important to ensure a complete understanding of what is required for post-operation to ensure a safe and quick recovery. So, strenuous activities cannot be resumed for at least 6 weeks after the procedure. Tummy tuck costs vary based on the location, the surgeon performing the procedure, demand, time and effort required during the procedure, and what is required from start to finish, such as anesthesia fees, hospital stay fees, lab fees, etc. At tummy tuck expect the procedure to cost $5,000-$9,000. To consult with a cosmetic surgeon and discuss a tummy tuck procedure and the overall cost, find a surgeon in your area who is right for you.
