Woman after tummy tuck procedure in MunsterAre you interested in having a flatter, better-toned midsection and wondering what a tummy tuck will set you back? The cost of tummy tuck surgery varies depending on the plastic surgeon’s experience, the type of procedure used and the geographic location of the practice. At Indiana Plastic Surgery in Munster and Valparaiso, our patients typically pay between $6,800 and $8,5000 for a tummy tuck.

Keep reading to learn what costs are included in this estimate. You’ll also find out how you can manage your surgical expenses with flexible plastic surgery financing.

Tummy Tuck Cost Breakdown

The fee range estimate of $6,800-$8,500 for a tummy tuck includes the surgeon fee, anesthesiologist fee and hospital fee. Several additional factors can impact the price of your tummy tuck. Exact pricing will be discussed during your consultation.

Your surgical cost will largely depend on one thing: the type of tummy tuck you choose. A mini tummy tuck is generally less expensive than a full tummy tuck. However, it’s limited in what it can accomplish.

You should base your decision on what will give the best results, and that may not necessarily be the cheaper procedure. Many patients require a full tummy tuck to achieve the slim and toned figure they desire.

In some cases, an extended tummy tuck may be more appropriate. You will receive personalized surgical recommendations at your consultation visit.

Paying for Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy tuck surgery is not usually covered by insurance. Most of the time, patients must pay out of pocket for this procedure.

We understand that covering the cost of a tummy tuck outright may not be feasible. That’s why offer plastic surgery financing through CareCredit®.

CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that you can use at our practice and at thousands of other health, beauty, and wellness providers across the country. You can complete a CareCredit application online and receive an instant credit decision.

If paying for surgery without financing makes sense for your situation, you have the option to do so. We accept the following forms of payment:

  • VISA
  • MASTERCARD
  • Cash
  • Money order
  • Cashier’s check
