Tucson Tummy Tuck Surgery
Providing Safe, Skilled Body Contouring
Tummy tucks, sometimes referred to as abdominoplasty, refers to a procedure in which the patient’s loose or sagging abdomen is tightened and smoothed out. This procedure can cover areas from the lower ribcage to the pubic bone and everything in between, and to either side. This type of contouring can be performed using a wide variety of techniques. At Hurst Plastic Surgery, our Tucson cosmetic surgeon can sit down with you and determine which of them is best for your unique needs.

Tummy tuck procedures are generally best suited toward people with the following qualities:
- Adults of any age
- In good health
- At or near their ideal weight
- Are moderately fit
- Have good muscle tone
- Have no plans to become pregnant after the procedure
- Do not smoke at all or drink to excess
There are many reasons that a person’s abdominal area might not be as taut and tight as they would like. Weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and hormonal changes can all contribute to loose skin and tissue that detracts from your overall aesthetic appeal.

How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?
Tummy Tuck in Tucson ranges between $7,500 and $9,500 all in (surgeon fees, facility, and anesthesia fee) however at Hurst Plastic Surgery you can get the same results starting at $4,500 (mini tummy tuck) In order to obtain the exact tummy tuck price you will need to book a consultation in order to evaluate your candidacy. The tummy tuck price should not be a factor when considering a plastic surgeon, make sure that the doctor has experience performing this procedure and is also board certified by the American board of plastic surgery.
What Is a Mini Tummy Tuck?
A mini tummy tuck is a modified version of the abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Instead of removing excess tissue from the whole abdomen, a mini tummy tuck removes excess tissue from the lower abdomen. This procedure gives the patient a flatter, firmer, and slimmer silhouette. It is a great alternative to the classic tummy tuck if you are at a stable and healthy weight without a large about of excess abdominal skin.
How Painful Is a Tummy Tuck?
Tummy tucks are usually very well tolerated. However, as with any surgical procedure, it can be risky and painful. The pain after the procedure is generally mild. In order to have the least amount of pain as possible, you should maintain light physical activity after the surgery, which will reduce your risk of developing blood clots. Other ways to reduce pain after your tummy tuck include:
Avoid the use of tobacco
Wear a compression garment until your abdomen is healed
Avoid constipation with over-the-counter medication
Take care of your incision area by cleaning the area and keeping it dressed in a bandage
Avoid taking Aspirin products
Your doctor will give you full instructions before and after the procedure on how to heal properly and manage pain after your tummy tuck.
