I went for a consultation today and was told my tummy tuck would be a fairly easy straight forward simple one to do and that i wouldnt need muscle repair.  I wasquoted 7500.00 dollars and felt this was a little on the steep side.  I am curious as to what this procedure has cost some of you.  I live in southern ontario.  Also wondered if any of you have had any procedure to fill in the breast sagginess due to the decrease of elastisity and slight sagging.  I am curious as to what some of you have done about that and also what you have paid for your breast procedure.  Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure how much my surgeon has charged for my surgery.  However, I have received my hospital bill and it was for 37K.  I stayed in the hospital for 2 nights after having surgery.

Wow!  That seems pretty steep but maybe you had a lot done?  Where abouts do you live or where did you have it done?  Are you happy with the work?  Sorry!!  Lots of questions!!!!

I had a panniculectomy and abdomnioplasty.  I just saw my EOB and my surgeon charged $5,100 for the surgery.  I guess the hospital made out like a bandit on my surgery.

The most excessive charges were 10K for the operating room and 15K for medical/surgical supplies.  Then various charges for the room, recovery room, laboratory supplies, drugs, and an EKG.

I had the surgery in Wichata Falls, TX.  My insurance approved my surgery so I was not out a lot of cash - Thank God - or else I would probably be saving up for it.

That is redicoulious what you had to pay the for everything!  The surgeon's price seems very reasonable.  That is kinda what i figured the prices around here would be so that is why I was so surprised.

Does that price include the OR and hospital fee ..or is it just the surgeon fee?  In January I am having an extended tummy tuck and full back lipo...total price (including 1 night in the hospital) is
13,100.  I thought that was a fair price or atleast what I was expecting.  Am I wrong??

My surgeon told me that is for everything.  That is why I am asking because this is a little mre than I expected.  Has been a while since I have looked around and at that time it was a lot less so I guess I was just surprised.  So I am curious what everyone is paying for their procedures.

I just had a tummy tuck, also breast lift and silicone implant augmentation.

One surgeon quoted me about 14,600 for all of that.

The surgeon I ended up doing to charged just about 17,000.

I did not need muscle repair either, i never had kids and the dr. said my muscles were together and flat and since i plan on having kids she would prefer not to sew them together.
but it would have been the same price had i needed the muscle repair.

7,000  seems reasonable just  for your TT.

I am feeling that it is probably reasonable but thought getting some input would help.  Thanks!  Are you happy with your work?  What area are you from?  I could use some work on the girls but if I have to choose one thing it will be the tummy.  I had a reduction years ago because I was quite large and am now a 34 f or g and it is so hard to find bras that fit nice.  It is just that they are a little deflated now and could use some plumping up!!!!

I had my work done in Philadelphia by Dr. Francine Cedrone, she does alot of bariatric patients and does alot of breast reconstruction  for women that have had cancer..

Im 9 days post op and LOVE my breasts. The tummy is getting better..im sure that will take time.
I needed the implant because I was down to a 32 C and the lift would have made me even smaller and I have a larger frame. But with a 34 f or g you probably would do wonderfully with a lift, it would take away some of that sag and skin but leave you with plenty of breast.

good luck with everything!!
