Treatment Options

Dr. Hughes and his experienced team  provide 3 types of tummy tucks for patients. Each tummy tuck procedure is aimed at erasing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles. With each procedure, small incisions are made to minimize scarring. Once the incisions are made the unnecessary skin is removed and the targeted areas are eliminated to ensure desired results.


Standard Full Tummy Tuck

The Standard Tummy Tuck is the most commonly preferred Tummy Tuck and is a crowd favorite among many mothers. The Standard Tuck is aimed to tighten abdominal muscles and remove excess fat tissue.

Mini Tummy Tuck

A Mini Tummy Tuck, or more commonly referred to as a”scarless tummy tuck” is for those that have stubborn stomach fat that exercise and diet can’t keep off. An incision is made along the bikini line to tighten muscles and remove excess skin.

Circumferential Tummy Tuck

The Circumferential Tummy Tuck is helpful for those who experienced extreme weight loss and are looking to remove excess sagging skin from their stomach and lower back region.

Can I expect my tummy tuck results to last?

A tummy tuck procedure isn’t a weight loss surgery. With a healthy diet and exercise regimes, the tummy tuck results will last as long as you allow them.

How noticeable is scarring?

Scars from tummy tucks are inevitable. Although, Dr. Hughes brings expert skill and precision to his practice and strives to ensure the scar will easily be unnoticeable and easy to cover.
