Is a Tummy Tuck Right for You?

If you are considering a tummy tuck procedure in Las Vegas, you’ll want to think about several factors, including lifestyle choices, cost, and recovery time. There are many benefits to getting a tummy tuck, including:

  • Removing loose skin and stretch marks after considerable weight loss or pregnancy.
  • Eliminating excess abdominal fat.
  • Repairing abdominal muscles after pregnancy.
  • Flattening a tummy bulge.

What about liposuction?

It’s common to combine liposuction with a tummy tuck to provide the best possible abdominal contouring. Liposuction removes areas of excess fat, while the tummy tuck is the only way to tighten loose, stretched skin and repair abdominal muscles.

When is a tummy tuck not advisable?

You should consider postponing a tummy tuck if you are still planning on losing a significant amount of weight or plan on becoming pregnant. While it’s safe to get pregnant after you’ve fully healed from a tummy tuck procedure, it’s not advisable. I usually recommend holding off on a tummy tuck until patients are done having children because the improvements gained from the surgery will likely be compromised.

How much does a tummy tuck cost?

Tummy tuck procedures at our practice usually range from $6,800 to $8,500, depending on the amount of surgical time, anesthesia fees, complexity of the procedure, and whether or not other procedures are performed during the same surgery.

When choosing a plastic surgeon, qualifications and experience should be your top priorities. You can’t put a price on your safety and your results. Make sure to ask your prospective plastic surgeon these important questions before scheduling any type of procedure. We also offer financing options that may help you to fit tummy tuck surgery into your budget.

What’s the first step if I’m interested?

If you are considering a tummy tuck, your first step is to request a complimentary consultation or give our office a call at (702) 734-4100 for confidential and informative answers to all your questions. When you visit the office for your consultation, you will learn all about the procedure and whether it is appropriate for you. If you decide to move forward with the surgery, you will have a preoperative consultation two weeks before your surgery. My main goals are always helping patients develop realistic expectations and ensuring they feel confident about their decisions.
