Tummy Tuck and Mini-Tummy Tuck surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure that many Newport Beach patients undergo to correct a variety of undesirable changes that occur following pregnancy and/or weight gain. Our Orange County and Newport Beach tummy tuck clients may have observed any one of the following changes:

  • Excess abdominal fat
  • Redundant abdominal skin
  • Protruding abdomen due to stretched out muscles
  • Unattractive skin texture and appearance especially surrounding the belly button (stretch marks)
  • Loss of feminine silhouette

The goal of tummy tuck surgery in Orange County is to restore and correct the separated and weakened abdominal muscles resulting in an abdominal profile that is firmer and smoother. You are not alone in desiring a taut and well-defined abdomen. Most people strive for this result through exercise and weight control. Unfortunately, diet and exercise won’t tighten loose belly skin nor correct a stretched abdominal wall. Interestingly, most of Dr. Mowlavi’s tummy tuck surgery patients are at their near ideal weight when considering this surgery. Surgical details are described by the figures below.

How much does a tummy tuck cost?

The average cost of a tummy tuck starts at $8,000 and pricing can vary depending on a plastic surgeon’s experience. There are many cosmetic surgeons in Orange County offering tummy tuck surgery at a discounted rate, but this is often due to their lack of experience. It is important to choose a board certified plastic surgeon that has multiple before and after photos of the procedure you are undergoing. If you talk to a patient that has undergone a tummy tuck revision because of a botched previous tummy tuck surgery, they will tell you overwhelmingly that the experience of the surgeon is well worth the higher price of the procedure.

Dr. Mowlavi’s tummy tuck surgery cost is all inclusive and includes:

  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Anesthesia fee
  • Medical tests
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Prescriptions

This price is an estimation only. To confirm if you are a good candidate for this procedure and receive an exact quote, please schedule a complimentary consultation with Orange County’s top tummy tuck surgeon, Dr. Arian Mowlavi.
