The average cost of a tummy tuck is $5,493, plus the cost of anesthesia, hospital fees, and other related expenses (American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2014). Because there are so many variable elements to the cost of any plastic surgery, especially a tummy tuck procedure, prices typically vary widely across the nation. Thus, one advertised "special" may simply include the physician fee and not any ancillary fees.
As you plan for your tummy tuck surgery, it is important to go into surgery with full knowledge of all expenses. Our experienced staff sits down with every patient and gives you the exact cost of your surgery, including the fees for anesthesia, medical tests, and the hospital. We give you one price to ensure you can focus on recovering after surgery and not sticker shock from unexpected fees.
Your exact tummy cost surgery will depend on the extent of surgery anticipated, which will be reviewed with you in detail during your initial consultation.
After the initial consultation, many of our patients decide to travel to San Antonio for their tummy tuck procedure; finding that even with travel expenses the cost is more manageable than other options. Dr. Bindewald's highly experienced office and operating room staff ensure patient's receive excellence in both their clinical outcome as well as the "business" aspects of coordinating the surgery - from hotel and travel accommodations, to reasonable expenses and a thorough understanding of the entire process.
Because Dr. Bindewald does not own an interest in a surgical facility and because he performs a high volume of complex reconstructive cases in one hospital, his hospital contract ensures you pay reasonable hospital fees and not elevated "private" surgical hospital expenses. Dr. Bindewald further streamlines your cost by maintaining only one location, with focus on clinical excellence instead of a grandiose facility.
