Tucson Tummy Tuck Surgery
Providing Safe, Skilled Body Contouring
Tummy tucks, which are officially referred to as abdominoplasty, are a procedure in which a patient’s loose or sagging abdomen is surgically tightened and smoothed out. This cosmetic procedure can cover the area 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 that you can decide upon with your doctor before the procedure.

Dr. Craig Hurst always works closely with his patients to ensure they are comfortable with the process and the projected results* before getting started. As an award-winning and highly sought-after abdominoplasty surgeon both locally and internationally, you can trust Dr. Hurst to help you achieve the look you want so you feel comfortable in your body.

Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?
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 detract from your overall aesthetic appeal. Fortunately, an abdominoplasty can resolve those misgivings for a large number of people.
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 physically fit,
- Have good muscle tone,
- Do not smoke at all or drink to excess, and
- Have no plans to become pregnant after the procedure.
If you believe a tummy tuck may be right for you, or if you aren’t sure and would like more information, please do not hesitate to reach out to Hurst Plastic Surgery to discuss your needs.
Where Do We Begin?
Scheduling your free consultation with Dr. Hurst is your first step to determining if a tummy tuck is a good fit for your needs.
We designed the consultation to fully educate you about tummy tuck surgery in a non-pressured environment, and will include:
- An in-depth discussion of your goals,
- Options available for your tummy tuck surgery,
- Outcomes of having the tummy tuck surgery and any potential complications, and
- The course of treatment recommended by Dr. Hurst.
The Results You Can Expect*
The results* are almost visible immediately, however, it may take several months for your final results* to develop. Your new image is relatively permanent as long as you maintain your weight and general fitness. Our Tucson cosmetic surgeon is committed to helping you achieve the results you are looking for!*
How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?
The cost of a tummy tuck in Tucson ranges between $7,500 and $9,500 all in (including surgeon, facility, and anesthesia fees). However, at Hurst Plastic Surgery you can get the same results starting at just $4,500 if you schedule a mini tummy tuck.
In order to obtain the exact tummy tuck price for your unique situation and needs, you will need to book a consultation to evaluate your candidacy. We offer our consultations for free and at no obligation so there is no risk in discussing your options with Dr. Hurst even if you ultimately decide not to proceed.
When looking into a tummy tuck, the price should not be the number one factor when considering an abdominoplasty surgeon. One of the most important aspects of undergoing any cosmetic or other medical procedure is to make sure that your doctor has experience performing the procedure (with the data on hand to back up such a claim) and is also board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Hurst Plastic Surgery is proud to have the experience and results* to back this up.
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 by patients. However, as with any surgical procedure, it can be risky and painful. We will discuss every potential risk and benefit with you before you undergo any surgery.
The pain after a tummy tuck 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 taking Aspirin products,
- Avoid the use of tobacco,
- Keep the incision area clean and dressed in a bandage, and
- Wear a compression garment until your abdomen is healed.
Your doctor will give you full instructions before and after the procedure on how to heal properly and manage pain after your tummy tuck.
