After losing a dramatic amount of weight, it may be cosmetically desirable to undergo a surgical procedure to remove excess loose and hanging skin. This surgical procedure removes the excess skin and fat to create a firmer, more sculpted body contour.
How much does body contouring cost?
Each body contouring surgery is unique and will be tailored according to the individual patient’s needs and aesthetic goals. Surgical fees can vary based on the custom surgical plan and current office promotions, ranging from $10,000 to $30,000. Surgical fees include the total cost of the surgery (anesthesia, facility, surgeon’s fee, implants, and post-op visits).
