What Is A Tummy Tuck?
Tummy tuck procedures have a 95% worth it rating on RealSelf and are the fifth most commonly performed procedure in the United States. There are multiple techniques that can be performed depending on the extent of the concerns, but the ultimate aim of the procedure, medically called abdominoplasty, is to remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. Most patients desire to undergo an abdominoplasty procedure after pregnancy or weight gain, then loss has caused their stomach to stretch and their muscles to be weakened.
Many patients undergo an abdominoplasty procedure as part of their Mommy Makeover Surgery where they tend to combine a body surgery with a breast procedure. For more information on the cost of this procedure and what the recovery period looks like you can view our blogs ‘Mommy Makeover Cost In Dallas‘ and ‘Mommy Makeover Recovery In Dallas‘.
What Are The Different Types Of Tummy Tuck?
There are two main types of abdominoplasty procedures that patients tend to undergo and choosing which one completely depends on the extent of their concerns. It is important that any patients considering undergoing the procedure seek the advice of at least one Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons to discover what procedure is most appropriate for their needs.
Mini Tummy Tuck
If a patient only has concerns regarding the lower region of their abdomen then a mini tummy tuck is likely more suitable since it only impacts the lower abdomen. The procedure is performed by creating an incision line across the bottom of the stomach and any excess skin is removed from the lower section of the abdomen and the abdominal muscles here can be tightened.
Full Tummy Tuck
However, other patients will have more extensive concerns that extend across their abdomen. A full abdominoplasty procedure will be more suitable for these patients as it addresses the entire abdomen and removes all excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles above and below the belly button. Due to the extensive areas covered during this procedure, the belly button often needs to be repositioned on the abdomen. Your surgeon will discuss this with you if it will be necessary for the type of procedure you wish to undergo.
Combining Abdominal Liposuction With A Tummy Tuck
Liposuction of the abdomen is very frequently combined with both the main types of abdominoplasty procedures. Liposuction can be easily performed alongside the procedure and tends to produce better results since abdominoplasty procedures are not designed to remove any fat. Therefore, if patients have concerns regarding excess skin and excess fat deposits on their abdomen combining the two procedures is often most suitable.

How Much Is A Tummy Tuck In Kaufman County, Texas?
Insurance companies do not tend to cover the cost of abdominoplasty procedures since the surgery is not generally carried out for any medical purpose. It is worth speaking to your health insurance provider to find out if you qualify for funding, but the majority of patients have to fund the entire procedure themselves.
According to RealSelf, the average cost of a mini tummy tuck in the United States is over $6,300. Furthermore, RealSelf state that the average cost of a full abdominoplasty procedure is over $8,300. Although these figures can be used as a useful indication the actual price of both procedures is likely to be significantly higher than these figures after hospital and anesthesia fees are paid. Further factors that can impact the cost of the procedure include:
- Hospital or operating room charges
- Experience and expertise of surgeon
- Surgery location
- Complexity of the procedure
- Aftercare products
- Consultations and check-up appointments
- Post procedure complications

Tummy Tuck Recovery
Recovering from an abdominoplasty procedure can be difficult and is one of the longer recovery periods from a cosmetic procedure if a full or complex abdominoplasty technique is performed. The recovery length from a mini tummy tuck is shorter and generally less painful since the incision line is smaller and the areas operated on are smaller.
However, regardless of which technique was performed, it is important that all patients take time off work to give themselves time to recover. Generally, the first week is when patients experience the most pain and side effects such as swelling. Some patients will have drains put in place to help with the swelling and build-up of fluid after the procedure. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled so that the drains can be removed and your surgeon can check on your recovery.
One of the main aftercare instructions to follow is to avoid any strenuous activities and not to lift anything heavy which could strain your stomach. Patients should drink plenty of water, ensure they have sufficient rest, and not try to rush their recovery period as it is important to give your body time to recover and heal after a surgical procedure.
