A woman in a yellow bikiniDr. Craig Foster has helped numerous patients in Uptown Manhattan achieve slimmer, trimmer, and better-toned frames thanks to advanced body contouring procedures. This includes tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty), which is ideal for sagging skin and stretch marks.

A number of patients have had questions about the cost of tummy tuck surgery, which we'd like to address in some detail right now.

What is the cost of tummy tuck surgery?

The cost of a tummy tuck surgery can vary a fair amount from patient to patient can based on a number of different factors. Because of this, we feel that providing a general average or even a general price range would not convey the full story when it comes to the surgery and what is involved.

With this in mind, we would be more than happy to provide you with a personalized price quote during a consultation at our practice. This will include a full breakdown of the costs involved in performing your surgery.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Tummy Tuck

Some of the factors that affect the cost of tummy tuck surgery includes the following:

  • The location of the plastic surgery practice
  • The expertise and credentials of the plastic surgeons at the practice
  • The type of tummy tuck to be performed (i.e., traditional, mini, extended)
  • The complexity of the patient's case
  • The use of other body contouring procedures for a full body lift
  • Special promotions unique to an individual practice

Is tummy tuck covered by my insurance?


The tummy tuck is considered an elective procedure that is purely cosmetic in nature. Since there is not a medical necessity to undergo a tummy tuck, it is not covered in any degree by medical insurance.

How do monthly financing payment options work?

If the cost of a tummy tuck or any body contouring procedure proves to be a financial burden to an individual or household, there are monthly financing options and payment plans that can help put the surgery within reach for a patient. These payment plans work in a similar way as a credit card or traditional loan, with patients paying back the lender on a monthly basis and a reasonable interest rate applied to the amount owed.

Many patients who elect to use payment plans find that these plans help them budget accordingly in the long run.
