Tummy Tuck

The Basics

A Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty, is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the tummy whilst at the same time, tightening the abdominal muscles.

The Procedure

Procedure is for people with excessive loose skin and abdominal muscle separation. The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic.

Post Surgery

For first few weeks your abdomen will be swollen and you will be on strong pain medication. Depending on the extent of the surgery, you may have to remain hospitalised for a few days.

After surgery you will require 4-6 weeks downtime with no heavy lifting.

The Results

Results in a scar from hip to hip which usually can be covered by underwear.

*Disclaimer - Results may vary from patient to patient.

Other Facts

At your initial consultation, your surgeon will evaluate your health, determine the extent of fat deposits in your abdominal region, and carefully assess your skin tone.

Complications may include infection, hyperpigmentation and keloid scarring.

Top Tummy Tuck Questions

What is a Tummy Tuck?

A Tummy Tuck, or Abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of skin and fat, and tightening of the abdominal muscles. For this reason, it is more extensive than Liposuction. The actual extent of surgery will depend on the amount of excess skin and the laxity of the abdominal muscles.
