Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from your abdomen and tightens the muscles of your abdominal wall. Loss of skin elasticity and excessive hanging skin due to weight fluctuation, or childbirth, can only be corrected with a tummy tuck. Unless you gain excessive weight, your new shape will be long lasting.

Who is a good candidate for tummy tuck?

A good candidate for abdominoplasty is someone who is close to their ideal weight, but has loose abdominal skin and weakened abdominal muscles either from pregnancy or weight loss.

There are different types of tummy tuck procedures for different patient needs. All types of abdominoplasty involve the removal of excess skin and the tightening of abdominal muscles, except for the endoscopic abdominoplasty.

Traditional Tummy Tuck

The traditional tummy tuck procedure addresses imperfections in the entire abdominal area both above and below the navel.

Endoscopic Tummy Tuck

The endoscopic tummy tuck only involves the tightening of abdominal muscles and the removal of small amounts of fat. No skin is removed.

Mini Tummy Tuck

When a mini tummy tuck is performed, the surgeon only works on improving the area below the navel.

Extended Tummy Tuck

An extended tummy tuck can also improve the appearance of love handles on either side of the hips, in addition to the abdominal area.

Cirumferential Tummy Tuck

A circumferential abdominoplasty is usually performed when a massive amount of weight loss has taken place, leaving an apron of loose skin around the entire body. This procedure may also be referred to as a lower body lift.

What does the Tummy Tuck procedure involve?

During the tummy tuck procedure, your surgeon will make one or more incisions. Endoscopic and mini tummy tucks have smaller incisions than other abdominoplasty procedures. Abdominoplasty is typically performed under anaesthesia or general anesthesia. Your incisions will most likely extend from hip to hip and around the navel. Your surgeon will remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. Sometimes a small amount of liposuction is used to remove small pockets of fat. The incisions are closed using surgical stitches and, if necessary, the navel is reattached.

What can you expect after surgery and during recovery?

You will have abdominal stitches and be fitted with a tummy tuck drain to draw fluid away from the wound. It will be at least a week before the drain is removed and you are able to return to work. The stitches will be removed in stages over the course of two-three weeks. Light walking and other very gentle exercise will help healing process to happen faster.
