One of our most popular plastic surgery procedures is the tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty. A tummy tuck is an extensive, complex procedure that addresses skin, muscle, and fat in the abdominal area. It results in a flatter, more toned stomach than you may be able to achieve with diet and exercise alone.

A tummy tuck is a great way to flatten and tone your abdominal area, especially after childbirth. However, a tummy tuck will not help you lose weight. During a tummy tuck, fat is removed, but fat is very light and the amount removed is not significant enough to cause actual weight loss.
The cost of a tummy tuck can vary greatly from person to person. At Baltimore plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Basner’s practice, the average range for a tummy tuck is anywhere from $7900 to $9500, although this cost could end up being higher or lower depending on your specific needs. We offer tummy tuck financing to help patients cover the costs of their procedure.
Did you know that there’s a way to reduce the size of your breasts that only results in a few tiny scars? Breast reduction using liposuction is much less invasive than traditional breast reduction surgery and may be a great choice if you have minimal sagging of the breasts.
The cost of a breast lift will vary depending on your individual needs. In general, if you combine procedures such as breast lift and breast augmentation, you will pay a little more than someone who undergoes a breast lift only. In addition, the complexity of your procedure will play a role in cost as well.
A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is often associated with restoring a pre-pregnancy body, but in fact a tummy tuck can be a useful whether you've had a baby or not. Men as well as women can benefit from this procedure if they have loose abdominal muscles, excess skin, and excess fat in the stomach area.
There are many procedures available to help you achieve the body shape and contour you want, including liposuction, tummy tuck, butt lift, labiaplasty, and more. Which procedure or combination of procedures is best for you can be determined through an in-person consultation with board-certified Baltimore plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Basner.

Time is running out to put the final touches on your holiday preparations, including for your appearance. While you can get a facial or a manicure the day before a big party, a little more time is required if you plan on having something like BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, or even a chemical peel.
During the holidays, everyone wants to look their best. Holiday parties and reunions with family and friends abound, and since most people get time off of work, it's the perfect time to gift yourself or a loved one a pick me up and boost in confidence through cosmetic surgery or non-surgical rejuvenation.
