For most people who are going to be pursuing abdominoplasty, the cost of a tummy tuck or a mini-tummy tuck will be one factor in their decision, but far from the only one. While the actual cost of the surgery can vary quite a bit, the good news is that, when you request a free consultation with Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, MD, FICS, FACS – better known to his long roster of pleased patients as “Dr. J.” -- you can depend on getting the best possible information about all aspects of your plastic surgery, including tummy tuck cost.
As you might expect, medical insurance will only cover procedures deemed medically necessary. Panniculectomy, which is basically removing the symptomatic hanging skin, is often covered. Abdominoplasty, which involves improving the appearance of the stomach, is not covered. Of course, there is not only the actual cost of the surgery, but the very real expense of taking enough time off from work for the surgery and whatever period of recuperation is needed. While the time required to fully recuperate from tummy tuck surgery varies, Dr. J. is highly skilled at reducing recovery the amount of time necessary.
