How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost in Thailand?
As summer is fast approaching, many of us dream of having a flat tummy in time for swimsuit season. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a surgical option for getting rid of stubborn fat around the midsection and lower abdomen with long-lasting results.
As a popular holiday destination, Thailand offers many exciting options for tummy tuck surgery, performed in high-class facilities by expert plastic surgeons.
In this blog post, we’ll explore the costs associated with tummy tuck surgery in Thailand.
As a general guide, a tummy tuck at our Bangkok clinic costs between 110,000 and 180,000 baht (approx. $3,200 – $5,200), depending on the type of procedure. This makes it a more affordable alternative to a tummy tuck in most Western countries. For example, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a tummy tuck in the US was $6,154 in 2020.
So, let’s discuss the different tummy tuck options individually and their costs in Thailand.
Mini Tummy Tuck Price
A mini tummy tuck is less invasive than a full tummy tuck and requires less recovery time. The procedure is ideal for individuals with excess fat deposits mainly in the lower abdomen, which typically manifests as a “pouch” below your belly button that refuses to budge even with diet and exercise.
A mini tummy tuck will remove excess fat and tighten loose muscles in the lower abdominal area for a flatter abdomen and a more aesthetically pleasing physical appearance overall.
The surgery involves a small horizontal incision above your bikini line. Through this incision, your surgeon will strip away excess fat, tighten loose muscles, and remove excess skin to flatten and smooth your abdominal wall. After surgery, you should be able to return to your normal activities after 3 days, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for up to 6 weeks.
At Interplast Clinic, the cost of a mini tummy tuck is 110,000 baht, or approximately $3,200.
Full Tummy Tuck Price
A full tummy tuck is an excellent option for people with excess fat and/or loose skin both above and below the navel. This procedure is also known as abdominoplasty. The end result is a significant reduction in excess fat as well as an improvement in the shape and appearance of the upper and lower abdomen. The surgery is also highly effective for removing excess loose skin after significant weight loss.
The surgery involves a horizontal incision across the lower abdomen between the belly button and pubic hair line. The shape and length of the incision can vary depending on the amount of excess skin. The surgeon will remove excess fat through the incision, and loose skin is trimmed for an aesthetically pleasing contour. The abdominal wall and its muscles are usually tightened as well. Most patients can return to work and their normal activities after 2 weeks, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 6-10 weeks.
The cost of a full tummy tuck at Interplast Clinic is 160,000 Baht , which is approximately $4,600.
Tummy Tuck + Liposuction Price
Tummy tuck can be combined with liposuction to remove more amounts of excess fat than a tummy tuck alone would achieve. This can help slim down your midsection as well as other areas of the body for the ultimate beach-friendly figure. A combination surgery is a very safe procedure; it is suitable for most patients with contouring results that can address particularly stubborn, exercise-resistant fat.
Tummy tuck + liposuction at our clinic in Thailand costs around 180,000 baht, or approximately $5,200.
During the procedure, your surgeon will first perform liposuction to remove excess fat from the abdominal area. This is followed by a tummy tuck to remove excess skin and tissue, giving the stomach a flatter appearance.
The benefits of a tummy tuck combined with liposuction include a reduced recovery time and cost compared to having the two procedures performed individually, as well as a reduced risk of blood clots and other complications.
