I don't know the breakdown, but I just had extended TT with lipo of flanks and abdomen, scar revision and breast lift; total cost was $13,500. That was after a 10% discount given to all healthcare workers. It included all surgical, surgeon, anesthesia fees; one night in the surgicenter; pre-op vitamin and herbal regime; post op care including compression garments. It did not include pre-op labs (I was able to get those covered thru my yearly physical) which they estimate at $200 or post-op medicines (antibiotic, pain meds).

I am having my plastics in OKC in May and the prices are...
TT (Abd - Maxi) $ 7500.00
Liposuction (Flank) $2500.00
Brachioplasty (with Axilla) $ 4750.00

  Total of $14750
               - $1000. discount for multi procedures
                 

So it will cost me $13750.00 whi*****ludes the anesthesia, facility fee, overnight stay, and garments. They give me the option of filling my meds for $70.00, but I have TriCare Prime, so I will fill them myself. I also have to get an EKG & Labs prior to surgery and those will also be done via my MTF.

I did see 3 different Surgeons and my estimates were from 12,500 to 17,400 for the exact same operations.

My insurance paid for the panni.  When I got the insurance statement, they paid the poor guy just $2100. I upgraded to a full tummy tuck (vertical incision) with muscle tightening for an additional $1000.  Insurance also paid for the facility stay, but I think that was around $2500.

I went to Northwestern University Residency program in Chicago and saved alot of $$s. I had an extended tummy tuck with lipo and it was $6,200 for everything. It was outpatient but it included the hospital, surgeon, all pre and post-op office visits, etc. I would highly recommend the residency program. It is a 7 year program and my surgeon was just months from graduating... and an attending physician was there too. I am very pleased with my results.
