How Abdominoplasty Solves the Problem

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to flatten a protruding abdomen by tightening the muscles in the abdominal wall. Before the procedure, we will talk to you about the parts of your tummy you are particularly unhappy with, so that we can focus on getting the results you want. By removing excess fatty tissue and skin, we can achieve a flatter and sleeker tummy to be proud of and show off confidently. Whether you have a roll of fat that hangs over your waistline, wrinkled skin, stretch marks or stretched muscles, we can resolve these problems with our effective abdominoplasty procedures.

Is Abdominoplasty Right for Me?

During your consultation, we will assess your case and reasons for considering abdominoplasty. Every case is different, but we are always confident that we can help the majority of our patients with our surgical procedures. If your weight has stabilised following a weight loss programme, or you have reached your ideal weight and need help shifting that excess fat around your tummy, we would love to help you.

What Happens During the Procedure?

The surgical procedure involves an incision around the belly button, and another incision just above the pubic area from one hip to the other. This allows us to focus on removing any surplus skin and fat. We normally make the incision low enough that you can conceal it easily with underwear or swimwear.

A tummy tuck can be a fairly extensive procedure and is performed under a general anaesthetic. As a result, you will normally need to stay with us for around 1-2 days.

How Long Does the Healing Process Take after A Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck can give almost instant and very dramatic results. Recovery times depend on the individual, and we assess each case individually so that we can deliver the right aftercare. Any pain or discomfort following the procedure can be controlled with medication, and you must refrain from any strenuous activity or lifting. Most patients are back to work or their normal daily routine within 4 weeks. However, this will depend on your nature of work, and again we will give you advice tailored to your needs.
