The costs for tummy tuck surgery for men and women are similar for both men and women. Although the nuances and technicalities in the surgery may change between men and women, and I will obviously change my plans for your surgery and my discussions about your surgery with you, this does not affect the basic costs.
Tummy Tuck surgery in Sydney (or abdominoplasty) with Dr Edinburg is done under a general anaesthetic in hospital and generally involves a stay of 3-4 nights. Dr Edinburg employs highly experienced and specialised practice nurses and patient support staff to guide and support you throughout your journey with us. Tummy tuck surgery cost, therefore, involves a variety of components including other medical professionals both in and out of the hospital environment, hospital theatre facilities, hospital accommodation and specialised post-surgical garments, all of which affect the overall cost of the procedure. At Eden Institute, you can rest assured, though, that Dr Edinburg will never compromise on the many factors involved in determining your costs.
Total Approximate Cost for Tummy Tuck for Men in Sydney
Tummy Tuck surgery may be considered as medically necessary or as a “cosmetic” procedure. In the first instance, if certain clinical criteria are met (related to weight loss), then there is a Medicare item number applied to the surgery which means Medicare rebates and private health fund cover apply. In the second instance, if the procedure is “cosmetic”, it will not be eligible for Medicare rebates nor will it be covered by any private health fund. Your eligibility for a Medicare item number will be assessed during your one-on-one consultation with Dr Edinburg, after which we will provide you with a detailed personal quote outlining all the costs as well as comprehensive information and support around your planned surgery and treatment options so you are fully informed prior to making a decision. Feel free to speak with us about Medicare’s eligibility criteria when you call.
Total cost for Tummy Tuck surgery with Dr Edinburg includes the surgeon’s fee, the anaesthetist’s fee, hospital costs (if any) and specialised postoperative garments.
