What Influences The Cost Of A Tummy Tuck?
When you browse online for cosmetic surgery clinics that provide a tummy tuck, you will find it difficult to find prices online. While you can find some averages on the internet, it never provides you with a clear estimate. Of course, there are reasons for that.
A tummy tuck is pretty much a procedure that is tailored to the individual. So, while one patient only needs a minimal amount of excess skin removed, other patients require a larger removal of both skin and fat. Since these factors can influence the duration of your procedure, it is no surprise that these factors also influence the cost of your treatment.
The treatment alone is not the only factor that can influence cost. The experience of the surgeon and the facilities available to the surgeon are also denominators that must be taken into consideration where procedure cost is concerned.

What Does A Tummy Tuck Involve?
The tummy tuck is a procedure that can be implemented with a variety of techniques, so this procedure is possible with either a local or a general anaesthetic. The techniques used during this treatment are subject to the amount of excess skin and fat to be removed, but also on the location of the fat and skin.
In some cases, the cosmetic surgery can use a technique that focuses on the removal of fat and excess skin on the lower abdomen. During this procedure, the surgeon will make an incision across the lower tummy and separate the skin from the abdominal wall; this below the belly button.
When a patient suffers from excess skin and fat around the entire abdomen, the surgeon will need to make a bigger incision; this incision usually stretches from hip to hip. However, the incision is made just above the pubic area, so the patient can still hide the remaining scar below a swimsuit or their underwear.
More extensive tummy tuck procedures can involve the realignment of the abdominal muscles, moving the belly button, and tightening underlying muscles. It also includes the strategic removal of remaining fat, leaving the patient with a more toned appearance and flatter abdomen. Of course, the techniques implemented by the surgeon will be subject to the results the patient wants to obtain.
How Does the Abdominoplasty Work?
The abdominoplasty is a body contouring procedure that tackles some of the problems that can occur after significant weight loss. These problems can occur after several pregnancies or for people who have lost substantial weight after a longer period of obesity.
Common problems due to significant weight loss include loose skin, persistent excess fat in problem areas, and even separated abdominal muscles. During tummy tuck surgery, the cosmetic surgeon will remove abdominal skin, persistent fats, and restore the abdominal muscles if they have become separated.
In some cases, the abdominoplasty can be reconstructive. For example, patients with separated abdominal muscles can often encounter severe lower back pain. With the muscles restored during the tummy tuck, the patient could experience a reduction or elimination of the lower back pain.
An abdominoplasty could involve an anaesthetist if a general anaesthetic is used during your procedure. During their post-operative care, patients should avoid making important decisions or signing legal documents for at least twenty-four hours. They should also have someone drive them home if they had a general anaesthetic.
During your initial consultation, your cosmetic surgeon can give you a detailed picture of what the procedure involves. This goes beyond the removal of sagging skin, as topics such as potential risks, medicare rebates, and other topics can be discussed in more detail.
What Do I Need To Do During My Recovery?
Patients will be prescribed some medication to keep infection at bay and some pain medication will be provided too. Of course, patients should take good care of themselves during their recovery time and follow the guidelines provided by The Dr Lanzer Clinic.
During the recovery process, patients should avoid strenuous exercise for some time. A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure and strenuous exercise could cause complications, so patients should take it easy for a while. The Dr Lanzer Clinic does recommend some light walking, since this enhances your recovery and can reduce the chance of certain complications.
In most cases, the patient must wear a compression garment after their treatment. The compression garment has a number of functions. Firstly, it reduces some of the swelling and bruising patients can experience after their tummy tuck. Secondly, the compression garment will help the body conform to its new shape and therefore provide the necessary support.
