Tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty allows the excess skin to be surgically removed (tighten abdominal muscles) giving you a tighter and flatter stomach. Tummy tucks are one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures and can be combined with liposuction to give all over body contouring.
Tummy Tuck surgery is suitable for those who have sagging and stretched skin or tissue around the stomach, usually as a result of pregnancy or significant weight loss. There are several different types of tummy tuck which are best suited to the degree of excess skin and tissue to be removed. During the consultation, your surgeon will recommend which method is most suitable for you depending on your stomach and desired result.
You are most likely to benefit if;
- you are of a normal weight that is stable
- you have been overweight in the past but have lost weight and kept it stable
- you have suffered from a separation of the stomach muscles, through carrying excess weight and/or pregnancies
- this is not suitable if you are planning on becoming pregnant in the near future
This procedure will be done under a general anaesthetic and will involve an overnight stay in one of our private hospital partners.
