For Plymouth men and women planning a plastic surgery procedure at our Ann Arbor practice, costs undeniably play an important role. Investing in a tummy tuck can transform your confidence, but it’s important to know what to expect financially before you schedule that first consultation.
In this blog post, we’ll talk a bit about how much a tummy tuck costs, what financing resources are available to you, and why it’s worth investing in the best when it comes to your body.
What is the cost of a tummy tuck?
There are a few factors that affect the cost of a tummy tuck:
- The complexity of the procedure: Procedures that involve significant amounts of skin and muscle tightening may cost more than simpler procedures.
- The type of anesthesia used: Local anesthesia typically has a lower cost than general anesthesia.
- Whether your tummy tuck is combined with other procedures: Adding enhancements, such as liposuction, may raise your price.
Because each procedure is individualized to give you the best results, costs vary from person to person. The best way to get a personalized estimate is to consult one-on-one with a plastic surgeon.

Is it cost-efficient to combine plastic surgery procedures?
If you are considering multiple procedures that are safe to perform together, it is cost-efficient to have them both performed during the same surgery. Combining procedures means you only pay a single set of anesthesia and facility fees, which can save you hundreds compared to paying them each individually.
The recovery time is also combined, meaning you recover from every procedure at the same time. That translates to less time away from work in the long run.
Will insurance cover a tummy tuck?
Tummy tucks are typically considered elective cosmetic procedures, so they are not covered by insurance.
Can I finance my tummy tuck?
Yes, you can finance your tummy tuck and pay it off in smaller installments. CareCredit® offers affordable monthly payment plans that CPRS is happy to accept. It works like a credit card specifically for healthcare services, and you can apply for it online in just minutes.
Why shouldn’t I shop for a tummy tuck based on price?
Finding a great deal on a tummy tuck may be tempting, but dramatically cheap tummy tuck prices often come at the cost of poor results. A surgeon offering a very low tummy tuck price may be inexperienced or lack the proper credentials to perform the surgery.
