Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
The extent of the surgery will depend on your abdominal requirement and your expectations, ranging from a mini (short scar) to a radical abdominoplasty
Weight fluctuations, pregnancy and ageing can result in significant changes of the abdominal contour and shape. The main reasons are loss of skin elasticity, excess skin, fat deposits and weakness of the abdominal wall muscles. Exercise and diet are beneficial but can have limited effects on excess skin and resistance fat deposits.
Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure addresses the aforementioned problems. The excess skin and fat is excised surgically. Liposuction may also be applied to achieve a finely contoured abdomen. The abdominal muscle will be approximated centrally to produce a tighter abdominal wall which results in a well contoured, youthful looking abdomen.
The extent of the surgery will depend on your abdominal requirement and your expectations, ranging from a mini (short scar) to a radical abdominoplasty.
The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and as an inpatient. It will normally take between 2 and 4 hours , depending on the extent of surgery required.
Post-operative abdominal compression garments will be applied to assist with abdominal support and recovery. You should be able to return to general office work within two weeks and to your normal activities in 6 weeks.
