What is the Average Cost of a Tummy Tuck in Miami Florida?

Submitted by Bernabe Vazquez on February 28, 2013

In a nutshell: The ranger in price for a Tummy Tuck in Miami will be between $4,000 and $10,000. However there is much more you need to know.

5When it comes to your body and health, there should never be a thought of a bargain. This is the most important aspect of your life, and choosing a doctor who is reputable, with the utmost of professional credits, must be your top priority. It’s a little like buying a parachute, you wouldn’t want to purchase the cheapest.

Avoiding False Claims

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, there are so many practitioners that the competition has caused a serious depletion of integrity when it comes to correct practices, including the amount of education the doctor has had in the field. False claims can lead to serious risks, which can be avoided with the proper research.

Is the Doctor Licensed?

The first, most important element in choosing your physician is to check to make sure if he or she is fully certified, and by which board and in which specialty. Proper and extensive training and background are essential, and it is not difficult to find out where a given practitioner has studied, how long he or she has been in practice, and what kind of reputation he or she sustains.

Reasonable Rates and Payment Plans

Discount prices that seem too low are probably too low for a reason. A good doctor will have reasonable rates and will also offer you a payment plan so that you can manage the costs on a monthly basis.

Beware of Hidden Costs

Many doctors and clinics have hidden costs, such as extra prices for after-surgery touch ups. These costs can add up, so be sure that the doctor you are considering is transparent. If the doctor works out of a hospital, prices will generally be higher than they would be for an in-house facility.

An Impeccable Reputation

Dr. Bernabe Vazquez of Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery has been dedicated to giving quality, professional care for 25 years. His consistent presence in the same office in Miami has inspired enormous confidence in his patients, who have been responsible for helping to solidify his impeccable reputation.

Also covered in the Doctor’s costs are:

  • An unfailing commitment to helping you gain confidence and better health through designing protocols that provide the best solutions for each case
  • Thorough before and after care, with consultations throughout each step
  • A complete understanding of what you can expect, from risks to the positive outcome that results when following healthy protocols in preparation and in healing
  • Before and after photos to help you see the positive results of your surgery
  • Complete receptivity to all of your questions, doubts, or concerns
  • An in-house surgical facility
  • Necessary touch-ups, except for the hard costs such as anesthesia and supplies

Methods for Preparation and Recovery

Dr. Vazquez believes that pre and post-operative consultations and practices are just as important as the surgery itself. For him, the correct methods for preparation and recovery are key elements in a successful result.

General Pricing in Miami

When speaking of tummy tucks in general, they can vary in price depending on the extent of the surgery needed, but generally they will cost anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000. If you have a lot of fat and excess tissue to remove, then it will be at the high end. If the work is mainly focused below the navel area, it will be lower. Some physicians charge one fee for the tummy tuck but only later explain about the additional cost of accompanying liposuction. Our price is inclusive of both.

A Mini tummy tuck will average between $1,800 and $5,000. This is where the operation takes place below the belly button line in order to contour the lower abdominal muscles.

The Miami Tummy Tuck

At Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Vazquez has developed an innovative procedure called the Miami Tummy Tuck, which is a far less invasive method for creating an optimum waistline. Using both liposuction and surgery, he is able to define and tone the midsection in a manner that is far less traumatic to the body than conventional tummy tucks.

Less Trauma to the Body

By shaping the abdominal area and the sides of the body through liposuction, the Doctor achieves a much more specific result, tightening and contouring the areas without having to cut and lift these tissues. He then applies surgery to areas not treated by liposuction thereby reducing trauma to the body, leading to less drainage that can compromise health.
