A tummy tuck is the best way to get rid of extra skin of the abdomen and tighten up the loose muscles that occur after pregnancy or weight loss. During the tummy tuck surgery, an incision is made low under the bikini line and along the groin crease. The skin is elevated along the muscles layer and then the muscles are tightened with permanent sutures. After the extra redundant skin is excised, the love handles are liposuctioned if necessary. A drain is usually placed and an abdominal binder is worn for a few weeks.

Financing Options for tummy tucks

There are many different options you can use for financing a tummy tuck.

  • The financing options include:
  • Finance companies like Care Credit and Advance Care financing.
  • Loans through your local bank and credit union
  • 401(k) loans
  • Health insurance financing through Health Savings Accounts
  • Home equity loans and lines of credit
  • Credit cards

If you are considering financing a tummy tuck, it’s a good idea to review the credit terms and the monthly payment schedule. Don’t forget about the interest rate especially on the 0% introductory interest plans. The finance companies often charge interest from the date of the loan if you don’t pay the interest back by the interest free period.

It is known that a tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure, requiring an investment of both money as well as time for recovery.  A tummy tuck is a life changing procedure. You will finally get rid of the extra loose skin and fat and have the loose muscles tightened. Your slimmer figure will be immediately evident and your friends and family will most certainly compliment you on your new and improved shape.
