The Hourglass tummy tuck developed and exclusively offered by Dr. Michael W. Gray (West Bloomfield, Michigan) helps patients feel much more confident in their appearance than a Traditional Tummy Tuck that is being performed. Making the trip to Michigan is well worth the experience as Dr. Gray performs his magic in a “state of the art” Out-Patient surgical facility. Also known as an abdominoplasty, it is important to understand that all Tummy tucks are not the same. Comparing a Traditional Tuck to the Hourglass Tuck is similar to comparing a Yugo to a Rolls Royce. The Hourglass being the Rolls Royce of Tummy Tucks but without the cost. Since this procedure is most commonly performed electively insurance will not cover the costs of the procedure. As a result, Dr. Gray does not charge a facility fee, so his fees are more reasonable that other surgeons. However, even if you are on a budget, there are a few ways to make the treatment affordable. Keep reading to learn all that you need to know about the financial side of obtaining an Hourglass tummy tuck.
Tummy Tuck Expenses You Can Expect
Nationally, This procedure can range in cost up to $12,000. However, if you make a trip to Dr. Gray in Michigan, you can have the procedure for under $5000 or less.
The costs includes all except your garment and anesthesia. Your insurance will cover the cost of any medication you need.
Variations in Tummy Tuck Procedures
Of course not all patients require a Traditional Tummy Tuck or an Hourglass tuck and may opt for a mini-tuck which has a lower cost but only tightens skin from the belly button down and does not flatten the tummy like the Hourglass Tuck. With the mini-tuck liposuction can be combined if desired.
What is best for you can be obtained with a complete consultation with Dr. Gray whether on-line or in person. Once you have had a consult, Dr. Gray can turn your dreams into reality.
Insurance Coverage Options
Many insurance companies will not cover tummy tucks because they are considered cosmetic. Partial coverage may be possible if a hernia is being repaired at the same time.
You may be unsure if financial assistance from your insurance company is possible. Call them ahead of time to know how much you will be expected to pay out of pocket. Most insurance plans have the procedure as an option but often disqualify patients for coverage after the procedure has been performed.
