Our full tummy tuck fee starts at $9640.00 * and includes the cost for your TAP block anesthesia at the Surgery Center at Kissing Camels along with general anesthesia for this longer and more involved surgery. *Call and inquire about our Military Discount fee for these surgeries. Tummy tucks are for patients who have excess abdominal skin and, or fat with tummy wall laxity. This is not weight reduction surgery.

The surgical procedure known as mastopexy is performed in patients who may or may not have had large breasts when younger but whose breasts have now have sagged and, as a general rule, breast volume can be diminished. It is an operation basically designed to improve the cosmetic appearance of a patient and is considered a major operation.
Ptosis, or sagging of the breasts, is a common condition in women who have had moderate to large breasts or whose breasts enlarged during pregnancy. The sagging occurs following a return of the breast to the previous size. The excess skin does not contract in some women, thus leaving a sagging breast which looks smaller.
Anesthesia: This operation is done with general anesthesia. This expense, the surgeon, and surgery center fees are included in the cost of your surgery.
