What is a tummy tuck? 

This procedure, medically called an abdominoplasty, is designed to make your abdomen more contoured, firmer, toned, and youthful.  Each procedure is slightly different.   Individual issues and concerns determine exactly what needs to be done.  Generally speaking, the procedure involves removing extra skin and fat from the abdomen as well as tightening the abdominal muscles.  Liposuction is almost always a part of the procedure.  Dr. Feagin and Dr. Owen have observed that the results from this procedure are usually long lasting.  If care is taken to maintain the results especially maintaining a stable weight, patients’ often have a body they can be proud of for years after the surgery.

This procedure is a transformative procedure.  It is no wonder that many that are considering it have concern about the cost.  The truth is that the price of this procedure will vary greatly depending on what needs to be done and where the procedure takes place.  Dr. Feagin and Dr. Owen’s often estimate for each of their procedures in order to help you plan for the surgery.  For your surgery, a final quote will be provided that includes the surgeon’s fees, anesthesia, and facility fees.  The cost of an abdominoplasty in our practice can range from about $6,300.00 to around $8,075.00.  If you scan the rest of the price list, you may have noticed that the abdominoplasty has a wider range of prices than most cosmetic procedures.  This is because of the amount and type of work done will be different for each patient.  One patient may need a more extensive surgical procedure while another may need only minimal work.  Financial options exist to help make this dream become a reality for you.
