Tummy tucks can vary in price for a number of reasons. One of the main reasons is the scope of the procedure. For example, if a surgeon must remove a considerable amount of excess skin and fat during a tummy tuck, this procedure could cost more than a tummy tuck where only excess skin requires removal. Of course, there are other denominators that contribute to the tummy tuck Brisbane cost. Different cosmetic surgery clinics can charge different costs; this can relate to the experience of the surgeon as well as the facilities available to them. Thus, the price of your procedure can vary from clinic to clinic. Because of the differences in costs, The Dr Lanzer Clinic does not like to post averages or estimates on the website. The price for a tummy tuck fluctuates from patient to patient, so getting your estimate directly from Dr Lanzer is usually better.
Patients who want to obtain a tummy tuck can book their first appointment with Dr Lanzer by contacting our friendly team of receptionists via telephone. Cannot contact us during business hours? You can also book your appointment through the website contact form. For more information about other surgical procedures such as breast augmentation, body lift, breast reduction, or for more information about the tummy tuck specifically, be sure to visit the additional information pages on the website.
Obtaining a cost estimate for your tummy tuck is easy at The Dr Lanzer Clinic since patients can benefit from a first free appointment. If you have never visited The Dr Lanzer Clinic before and are considering a tummy tuck, then you can book this appointment with us. The same applies to patients who are looking at other cosmetic procedures but never visited the Dr Lanzer Clinic before.
Of course, not all patients live near one of our clinics. Some patients travel interstate or even internationally to get their treatment at The Dr Lanzer Clinic. If this is the case, Dr Lanzer could provide a cost estimate via email. Of course, it is always better to visit The Dr Lanzer Clinic in person.
There are also some instances where patients may be able to get part of their procedure covered by medicare or be eligible for specific rebates under a health insurance plan or health fund. This should also be discussed with your cosmetic surgeon, especially when you obtain the tummy tuck for a medical reason such as persistent back pain.
Tummy tuck surgery can vary considerably depending on the technique used during your procedure.
Patients who have a considerable amount of abdominal skin below the belly button might get a mini-abdominoplasty, where the procedure is executed in the lower abdomen alone. However, patients who have excess fat and skin all around the abdomen might get the full abdominoplasty or full tummy tuck.
During a full tummy tuck, the cosmetic surgeon will address loose skin and persistent fats, which can be left even after a significant amount of weight loss. He can also look at the abdominal muscles, which can be separate from previous weight gain. By restoring these muscles during the tummy tuck procedure, he can create a flatter abdomen, but also reduce problems such as back pain.
Full abdominoplasty surgery can also involve removing the umbilicus from the abdominal wall. Since the surgeon will remove lots of skin from the patient, the belly button must be moved to its natural place. For those who had significant weight loss, this belly button can be situated much lower on the abdomen and therefore must be moved.
Body contouring of the lower abdomen does not involve moving the belly button. However, the surgeon will focus on skin and fat removal in the lower abdominal area.
An increasingly large number of patients now opt for Tummy Tuck Liposuction procedures. The other advantage of using this method is that often less skin needs to be lifted and on the upper stomach this means less risk to the blood supply of the skin.

Before you come to The Dr Lanzer Clinic for your appointment, it can be a good idea to read through the information pages on our website. This does not solely include info on how the procedure is executed and the cost of the treatment, we also provide numerous case studies. By looking at our case studies, you can get some examples of patients who had tummy tucks. So, prospective patients who want to know about the results that can be acquired through the tummy tuck can refer to those case studies.
Please note that when you take advantage of the first free appointment at The Dr Lanzer Clinic, you are not obligated to go ahead with the procedure. A lot of patients visit our clinic to get familiar with the tummy tuck and our facilities overall, after which they can make a more informed decision.
Post-surgery, patients must avoid strenuous activity and wear the support garment provided by their cosmetic clinic. Wearing the compression garment will help the area conform to its new shape, but also reduce some of the bruising and swelling that can be encountered from the procedure.
Proper post-operative care must be maintained after the procedure. During your consultations with your cosmetic surgeon, you will learn everything you need to know about this. Aftercare involves everything from keeping the area clean to spotting potential complications that require attention.
Both procedures can involve the use of general anaesthesia, which means your procedure could envelop an anaesthetist fee in the overall cost of your procedure. However, there are some procedures that can be executed under a local anaesthetic.
Since a general anaesthetic can be used during your procedure, please refrain from signing important documents or making decisions for at least 24 hours after treatment. General anaesthetic can remain in your body for a while and can therefore influence these abilities.
Please note that not all patients having a full abdominoplasty will have the muscles of the abdominal wall restored. In some cases, the muscles have not separated, which means that no interference will be needed on a surgical level. Patients usually find out if they have separated muscles or not during their initial consultation. If this is the case, they can be restored to promote muscle tone and reduce discomfort associated with separated stomach muscles.
Patients should also be aware that the mini tummy tuck or the tummy tuck is not a solution for stretch marks. Even though sagging skin with stretch marks will be removed during the procedure, the stretch marks on the remaining skin will stay. If you wish to remove stretch marks, there are some non-surgical dermatological procedures at the Dr Lanzer Clinic that can help you achieve this. These treatments are available throughout Australia.

The cost of a tummy tuck can vary considerably for each patient, this relates to the complexity of the procedure as well as the techniques used by the surgeon. Therefore, it is recommended to get an estimate from your cosmetic surgeon directly to ensure you have a full overview of the cost involved.
To find out if the procedure is covered, always speak to your cosmetic surgeon first and foremost. Even though the tummy tuck can be considered as a cosmetic procedure, there are some instances where the procedure is done for medical reasons.
Much like patients in Brisbane, patients in Queensland will find that the cost of their procedure can be variable. Once again, we recommend getting your estimate directly from the cosmetic surgeon to prevent unwanted surprises.
While most patients recover quickly from the procedure, it is essential to listen to your own body to ensure proper recovery. Your surgeon will also recommend some light walking and to stay away from heavy, strenuous activities until you are recovered sufficiently.
