As a guide:
Dubbed “Mummy Tummy Magic” because of its popularity as a post-pregnancy procedure, this treatment involves the use of Vaser Liposuction to remove fat and tighten skin. The Vaser energy heats up the all-important “collagen fibres” causing them to instantaneously contract resulting in a tightening effect on the tummy.
Liposuction on the tummy area is a ‘walk in walk out’ procedure designed to flatten, tighten and produce a more contoured stomach through cosmetic surgery.
Mummy Tummy Liposuction using Vaser Liposuction may be a suitable treatment alternative to having an abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck). As well as decreased surgery times, you are not left with a hip-to-hip scar that is typical of a traditional Tummy Tuck.
Women with reasonable skin, that is, not excessive amounts of loose skin, and little to no muscle separation.
It is best to see our Doctors assess your situation to determine if Mummy Tummy Liposuction is suitable for you.
For most patients, Tummy Liposuction alone is sufficient to correct the problem of excess skin and may present a better option for some patients than Abdominoplasty. Not only is the procedure less invasive and less traumatic than a traditional Tummy Tuck, Tummy Liposuction requires fewer incisions, leaves less scarring and does not cause displacement of the belly button.
The procedure is performed under conscious sedation, minimising all associated risks and side effects, allowing for a rapid recovery time.
Below outlines the main differences:
|Large scar across the abdomen||Tiny scars|
|Best for excessive loose skin||Will tighten moderately loose skin|
|General Anaesthesia||Conscious Sedation|
|Prolonged recovery (1 Month)||Quick recovery (1 week)|
|Tummy area only||Can treat whole body|
|Will repair muscle separation||Will not help muscle separation|
|Cost: From $12,000-$16,000||Cost: From $4,400|
You will be able to return home the same day. You will be fitted into a compression garment which must be worn for up to 6 weeks, which assists in the healing process.
The procedure requires a light sedation and a local anaesthetic with most patients requiring 3 to 5 days off work.
On returning home, you will not be bed-ridden and we encourage you to move about.
You can expect some fluid seepage for approximately 24 hours post procedure.
Post operative lymphatic massages are an important part of recovery and achieving optimal results and you will be required to attend the clinic for regular massages for a few weeks.
Everyone heals differently. You know your body best and we encourage you listen to it and give yourself time to heal properly. Normal daily activities can be returned to the day after the procedure , however vigorous activities such as intense exercise or sports for around 2 to 3 weeks.
To optimise your recovery process, become familiar with the do’s of Liposuction recovery:
The actual number of fat cells in a persons body remains stable during your lifetime. Unless we become grossly obese you do not grow more fat cells after adolescence. When the fat cells are removed by liposuction it is very difficult to gain fat back in those areas. The definition of the muscle will remain even if you put weight on, your fat will be evenly distributed after liposuction. These findings were published in the August issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The full report can be read here.

Most patients see the results at around 6 weeks. These will continue to improve over the next 3 – 12 months with a considerable improvement in the overall skin quality.
Studies have shown that Vaser technology has less complications compared to other UAL methods.
There are inherent risks and complications as there are with any surgery. You should be aware of the potential risks and discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor before your surgery is performed.
