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.

I actually went through Baylor College of Medicine Residency Program (Thank You Melissa!!) I have the most AWESOME results! I'm only sad my surgeon will be gone from the program before I decide on a mini facelift!!

How do you find out about these residency programs and where do you find them?  Do you think they are better due to they are really trying hard cause they are learning or would you be more afraid to go to one?

I'm having my breast reduction/lift and tt done in Orange, Ca (outpatient). My reduction is being paid by ins, so some of the anestheseologist and facility for my TT is covered. My TT is out of pocket: $4300. The tt is: 2800 (inlcudes muscle tightening and lipo as needed)
Facility fee: 1000
Anesthesia: $500

This surgeon has worked on 7 of my friends (that I met here on OH). I know his work and am super excited (and increadibly nervous!)

Thanks for the info. Dr Kent did my BA 7 years ago so he was my first choice for TT. I was bummed out to find he move to oklahoma this year. Maybe I'll find someone with same talent our just fly out to him.
