What does a tummy tuck cost?
This is one of the most common question that patients have about tummy tuck surgery and body lift surgery. To give you a clear idea about what you can expect the cost of a tummy tuck to be, we have created this page to go through the cost in detail.
Many plastic or cosmetic surgeons will list a price from. In many cases the price that you end up paying will be a lot more than this listed price as this usually refers to the cheapest option available for the surgery. A mini-tummy tuck usually takes around 2 hours and can sometimes only require a day stay compared to a full tummy tuck that takes around 4 hours and requires an overnight stay in hospital.
If you meet the criteria and descriptors of the Item Number for this procedure, your private health fund and Medicare will provide rebates.
On this page we will discuss what you can expect the cost to be if you have surgery with Dr Beldholm and also what you can expect the general costs of a tummy tuck to be in Australia.
The other side of the cost is the personal cost of time off and recovery. The liposuction based tummy tuck that Dr Beldholm performs has a quicker recovery, less pain and has proven reduction in complications (see reference 1-10). This means that you can get back to work and life much quicker.
