Tummy Tuck

Natural beauty woman portraitThis procedure is the removal of excess skin and fat from the abdominal area. It is used to improve the appearance of the stomach including the umbilicus, and to tighten the muscles and bring them closer. A tummy tuck is not a substitute for exercise, but is beneficial after considerable weight loss and pregnancy, where the skin may appear loose and has developed stretch marks. Even after frequent exercise some women are unable to tighten the abdominal wall, therefore a flatter and smoother abdomen can be achieved with this procedure. The best results are obtained by already being the correct weight in proportion to height. During the operation, your abdominal wall may also be tightened to achieve a flatter stomach.

WHAT TO EXPECT

An abdominoplasty is carried out under general anaesthetic and involves being in hospital for 1-2 nights. You are advised to cease taking the contraceptive pill and to stop smoking prior to surgery. There is some moderate pain and a scar left after the procedure, and a corset is usually required in the first 6 weeks. You will need a period of recuperation post operatively and no sport can be undertaken for six weeks.
