Tucson Tummy Tuck Surgery
Skilled Body Contouring
A tummy tuck, officially referred to as an abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure where excess skin and fat are removed from the abdominal area and the remaining skin is repositioned in order to create a more contoured appearance. The underlying fascia may also be tightened at the same time. At Hurst Plastic Surgery, in Tucson, Dr. Craig Hurst, is fellowship trained and has over 14 years of experience in plastic surgery. Dr. Hurst, a cosmetic surgeon, offers tummy tucks to provide a more firm, flatter and better proportioned appearance to your abdomen.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
There are a number of factors that contribute to abdominal laxity. Sometimes exercise and diet can't correct loose or sagging skin in this area of the body. In these situations, a tummy tuck is an effective surgical procedure that produces a more toned, smooth appearance of the abdomen.
- Significant prior weight changes
- Previous pregnancies
- Prior abdominal surgery ( C-section)
Dr. Hurst and his staff meet with you for a complimentary consultation to discuss your specific aesthetic abdominal concerns and goals. Dr. Hurst will develop a personalized plan tailored to your needs and expectations. His priority is primarily ensuring satisfaction with your results*.
Women who are planning future pregnancies or individuals considering significant weight loss are recommended to postpone tummy tuck surgery. An abdominoplasty may be recommended in conjunction with liposuction or other body contouring procedures in order to achieve optimal aesthetic results*. Stretch marks outside the area of skin resection are not corrected through tummy tuck surgery.
- Complete Abdominoplasty: A classic tummy tuck is the preferred option when a considerable amount of correction is necessary to achieve a tighter, more taut abdominal profile.
- Mini /Partial Abdominoplasty: An alternative for candidates who have less excess skin, it is a modified version of a complete tummy tuck that targets redundant skin in the lower abdomen (below the belly button).
A mommy makeover is usually a single stage cosmetic procedure that involves performing a tummy tuck and breast augmentation with or without a breast lift. This procedure revitalizes your body's shape and appearance in these particular areas following pregnancy.
Tummy Tuck Investment
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons from 2020, the average surgeon's fee for a complete abdominoplasty is $6100.
