As of 2015, the surgeon's fee for a tummy tuck is $5,493, as calculated by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This cost varies widely depending on the surgeon's level of experience, location and the type of procedure used, and it does not include additional surgery-associated fees.
The total cost of the procedure is augmented by additional charges that are not factored into the surgeon's fee, notes the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. These charges include the cost of prescription medications, medical tests, hospital or surgical center, and anesthesia fees. Depending on the policies of the plastic surgeon's office, these costs can be offered in a comprehensive estimate.
