How Much Will I Pay For A Tummy Tuck?
How Much Will I Pay For A Tummy Tuck?
Many patients who visit our clinic for the first time often ask about the price of their tummy tuck procedure; this is not a surprise though, especially when you consider that most cosmetic procedures can be an investment.
To help our patients understand the Perth tummy tuck cost they can encounter on a procedure estimate, we have described some of the common variables below. So, if you are interested to learn what is involved in the Perth tummy tuck cost, be sure to read the information below.
Can The Perth Tummy Tuck Cost Be Influenced By Certain Factors?
Two people who request an estimate for the same procedure at the same clinic can still encounter a variable price. For example, patient A may need a considerable amount of skin removed, while patient B does not. Naturally, this can cause patient A to pay more for her treatment than patient B.
To explain how a tummy tuck can vary in price so much, we need to look at the nature of tummy tuck surgery. This is very much a procedure that is tailored to the individual, so patient A may have different requirements than patient B. As such, prices for surgery can vary on a basic level.
Of course, there are other denominators that could influence the Perth tummy tuck cost. Various clinics across Australia can have different fees. Some surgeons operate at a hospital, which means patients will be charged a fee for the operating theatre. Other surgeons have their own operating theatre, which allows those surgeons to offer a better price.
How Can I Get An Accurate Estimate For A Tummy Tuck In Perth?
There are many ways to get an accurate estimate. At The Dr Lanzer Clinic, we recommend that patients take advantage of our first free appointment. During the free appointment, you can get an accurate estimate for your treatment, but also speak to Dr Lanzer about the results you wish to obtain and the treatment itself.
Some of Dr Lanzer’s patients travel interstate for their treatment, which can make it harder to visit the clinic for an estimate. Therefore, Dr Lanzer also provides an opportunity to contact him by email to request an estimate.
What Is Done During A Tummy Tuck Procedure?
A cosmetic surgery can use various techniques during a tummy tuck procedure. The techniques used can be adjusted according to the amount of skin and fat that must be removed. Techniques can also be adjusted according to the location of the skin on the abdomen.
Some patients may only experience excess skin on the lower abdomen, which means the surgeon will only focus on the lower abdomen for the tummy tuck. During this procedure, the surgeon makes an incision across the lower tummy, just below the belly button. Also, since the excess skin is situated underneath the belly button, the cosmetic surgery does not have to move the belly button.
Of course, other patients may have excess skin across the entire abdomen; this will influence the technique used by the surgeon during the tummy tuck. When excess skin and fat must be removed from most of the abdomen, the surgeon may be required to move the belly button to a new position.
During a tummy tuck procedure, the surgeon may also be required to tighten and restore the underlying muscles. During a period of extensive weight gain, the abdominal muscles can become separated. Once the weight is lost, the surgeon can restore the muscles once again.

Are There Special Guidelines Post-Recovery?
Patients will be required to follow some post-operative guidelines obtained from The Dr Lanzer Clinic. Below, we have described some of the most important ones.
Most patients will have to wear a special compression garment after their procedure. The compression garment will keep the abdomen in its new shape, but it also reduces some of the bruising and swelling that can be experienced after the procedure.
During their recovery, patients will have to avoid strenuous exercise. Heavy exercise can cause complications after the surgery, so patients should only resume their regular exercise routine once they have received the all clear from Dr Lanzer. Nevertheless, patients are encouraged to do some light walking after their surgery, as this promotes the healing process and can prevent serious complications post-surgery.
