Cost of Male Tummy Tuck Surgery FAQs

1. How much does a male tummy tuck cost?

While you can always simply search for “tummy tuck male cost” in Google and get a few vague answers, it’s important to remember that the cost of tummy tucks really depends on multiple factors, each of which cannot be determined until you meet one-on-one with the surgeon who will be performing your operation.

When your surgeon can take a look at you in person and is able to examine your loose skin, abdominal muscles, and excess fat directly, only then can they provide you with concrete options for surgery and discuss your goals and how much achieving them should cost.

2. What factors influence the cost of a male tummy tuck procedure?

For starters, who your surgeon is (and what their surgeon’s fee is) will make the biggest impact. It also matters whether you’re undergoing a standard tummy tuck (full tummy tuck), mini tummy tuck, extended tummy tuck, fleur-de-lis tummy tuck etc. The extent and difficulty of your surgery will matter here.

Next, you’ll want to consider costs associated with anesthesia, the hospital or surgical facility, prescription medications, pre-surgery screening tests and medical exams, and recovery products. Don’t forget that you’ll also need to take time off from work and possibly pay for things like meal services or extra childcare while you recover.

3. Does insurance cover the cost of a male tummy tuck?

No, tummy tucks to remove excess skin are largely elective procedures, so insurance will not cover these costs.

4. Are there financing options available for a male tummy tuck?

Yes, in most cases, plastic surgeons offer financing offers. Sometimes, these are offered through the practice specifically, but more often, there are financing plans available through medical credit companies like CareCredit. Most surgeons also accept major credit cards.

5. How much does the surgeon’s experience impact the cost of the procedure?

The more experienced your surgeon, the more your surgery is going to cost in all likelihood. This is simply because a plastic surgeon with a lot of male tummy tuck experience is going to be in higher demand. Their expertise in this area of body contouring will mean they perform more of these procedures and can achieve optimal results will less male tummy tuck scar visibility more readily than many other surgeons can.

Average Cost Of Male Tummy Tuck6. How does geographic location affect the cost?

Rural areas and smaller-sized cities tend to have the lowest prices on all types of surgery, from male tummy tucks to weight loss surgery. On the other hand, large urban areas like New York City tend to have the highest prices. Of course, these areas also attract the best board certified plastic surgeons in the country.

7. Will the cost be higher if combined with other procedures?

Yes and no. If you plan on undergoing multiple procedures at once, the price of this combination operation will naturally be higher than the cost of a single surgery.

On the other hand, the alternative is undergoing each procedure separately. And in the end, this latter way of undergoing surgery will ultimately cost more. This is because when you combine procedures, instead of doing everything twice, you only require anesthesia once, use of the operating room facilities once, your surgeon’s services once, etc.

8. Can the cost vary based on the complexity of my specific case?

Yes. In fact, it often does. If you are someone who may require an extended tummy tuck or a fleur-de-lis tummy tuck, for example, you can expect to pay more for your procedure. Other factors like the extend of male liposuction, how much excess skin there is, and to what extent the muscles are separated may also factor in.
