San Diego Tummy Tuck Costs


At Dr. Vincent Marin’s San Diego practice, tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, surgery costs between $5,500 and $9,800. Patients that choose to undergo surgery with Dr. Marin benefit from the skill and high level of care offered by a board certified plastic surgeon. We invite prospective plastic surgery patients to contact our office and schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Marin. Upon examination of the stomach, including the degree of skin laxity and weakened muscles, Dr. Marin can formulate an effective treatment plan that will produce a smooth and flattened skin contour. At that time, Dr. Marin can also provide our San Diego patients with the cost of tummy tuck surgery.

Why Does the Cost Vary?

The cost of tummy tuck surgery varies. The type of tummy tuck surgery will affect the price: – See more at:

  • Mini tummy tuck: When only slight droopiness of the skin affects the abdominal region, and the patient does not require re-positioning of the belly button, a mini tummy tuck procedure can be performed. The cost of mini tummy tuck is typically at the lower end of the price scale.
  • Standard tummy tuck: The traditional tummy tuck surgery is the most commonly performed abdominoplasty technique. In this procedure, a longer incision is created in the lower belly (a curved vertical incision that extends from one hip bone to the other), allowing for more skin removal, as well as tightening of the abdominal muscles and adjusting the appearance of the belly button. Standard tummy tuck costs may be toward the middle of the price scale.
  • Extended tummy tuck: In the extended tummy tuck procedure, the incision is a bit larger, going around the sides of the hips so excess skin in the lower back or flanks can be tightened. Since the extended tummy tuck procedure is more complicated than the mini or standard tummy tuck, its costs tends to be at the higher end of the price scale.
