How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?
For many people, getting rid of excess stretched skin and fat in their midsection seems impossible. Even if you eat healthy and exercise on a regular basis, you may still be left with a flabby abdomen that makes you feel self-conscious both in and out of clothing.
That’s where a tummy tuck can change your life. A tummy tuck (also called an abdominoplasty) can flatten your stomach and help you achieve the toned figure you’ve always wanted. One of the most common questions prospective tummy tuck patients ask is “how much does a tummy tuck cost?” Read on to learn the answer to this question.

Good Candidates for a Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck is a good option for men and women alike who are bothered by excess skin and fatty tissue. Since pregnancy often permanently stretches the skin and stomach muscles, women who have had one or multiple pregnancies are good candidates for this procedure. A tummy tuck may also be a good fit for men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight. Patients should be in overall good health and have realistic expectations about their results. Because he wants his patients to enjoy the maximum benefit from their tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Brown insists that his patients be within ten pounds of their goal weight.

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck
Patients who undergo a tummy tuck can enjoy a variety of benefits. First and foremost, a tummy tuck can create smooth, taut skin, and tight abdominal muscles. Usually, an abdominoplasty procedure will eliminate all (or nearly all) of the abdominal stretch marks. A tummy tuck can also expand clothing options and allow patients to look great in tighter fitting shirts and dresses. An abdominoplasty can drastically improve a person’s overall quality of life, by instilling the sense that they finally have their body back.
