What is Tummy Liposuction?
Tummy Liposuction using Vaser Liposuction is a treatment alternative to having an abdominoplasty; better known as a Tummy Tuck. 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. As well as decreased surgery times, you are not left with a hip-to-hip scar that is typical of a traditional Tummy Tuck.
At Cosmos Clinic we offer the surgery 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 the skin. The Vaser energy heats up the all-important “collagen fibres” causing them to instantaneously contract resulting in a tightening effect on the tummy.
In most patients the results are initially seen at around 6 to 8 weeks with Tummy Liposuction. These will continue to improve over the next 3 to 12 months with a considerable improvement in the overall skin quality. The procedure requires a light sedation and a local anaesthetic with most patients requiring 3 to 5 days off work.
Who is the ideal candidate for Mummy Tummy Liposuction?
Women with reasonable skin, not excessive amounts of loose skin, and little to no muscle separation. If women do have loose skin and lots of fat and they just want to look better in clothes, then Vaser Liposuction may be an option. It is best to see our Doctors assess your situation.

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 a local anesthetic, minimising all associated risks and side effects, allowing for a rapid recovery time.
Tummy Liposuction can provide some excellent benefits in terms of your physical health and self-worth as well as your emotional well-being. You should ensure that you fully understand the procedure and ask lots of questions whilst you are deciding whether this is the right solution for you.
After undertaking Tummy Liposuction at Cosmos Clinic, you must participate in post-opt treatments to ensure you achieve the best results possible.
On average, 3 to 6 post-opt treatments are required, starting at day 1 to 5 after your procedure. On returning home after the procedure, you will not be bed-ridden. In fact, we encourage you to move about. Everyone heals differently; you know your own body 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 but we suggest you avoid vigorous activities such as intense exercise or sports for around 2 to 3 weeks.
