Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty & Mini Abdominoplasty)
Remove excess fat & skin from the tummy for a thinner, firmer abdomen
A tummy tuck (or mini tummy tuck), also known as an Abdominoplasty (or mini Abdominoplasty) is a popular procedure to remove excess fat & skin from the tummy area, and tightening the abdominal muscles in order to produce a thinner & firmer abdomen.
Costs & Procedure Information
An abdominoplasty, or full tummy tuck, ideal for those who have loose skin and fat (an “overhang”) and can restore the contours of the abdomen.
It is a procedure where the skin and fat below the umbilicus (belly button) is removed using a scar that runs from hip to hip hidden inside the silhouette of the underwear. The upper abdomen is then re-draped and the umbilicus re-positioned. Abdominal muscle weakness can accentuate a bulge, so the muscles of the abdomen are usually tightened up to correct this. It requires a general anaesthetic, takes around 2-3 hours and usually involves a stay in hospital for 1 night after the surgery.
A mini abdominoplasty, also known as the mini tummy tuck, is ideal for those who have a little loose skin and fat below the umbilicus as is typically seen in slimmer ladies after having children.
It is a similar procedure to the full abdominoplasty to remove skin and fat but the technique uses a scar just above the pubic area, hidden inside the silhouette of the underwear. By contrast to a standard abdominoplasty, the umbilicus (belly button) is not re-positioned, the scar is often shorter and drains are also not typically used. It requires a general anaesthetic, takes around 1-2 hours and can be performed as a day case.
The procedures are not a method of weight loss, but can give the confidence to kick-start a general lifestyle change that comprises of changes in diet and increased exercise.
After surgery, the wound will be covered with a layer of glue which allows you to shower from the next day. You will have a drain that stops fluid from collecting under the skin and this is typically removed on the second day. You will need to take at least a week off work and you may return to light activities after a week as tolerated (everybody is different). You will be given a support garment that you should wear for 6 weeks for comfort and to help with healing. Strenuous activity such as sport and gym exercise should be avoided for six weeks. Driving can be resumed once you feel comfortable to perform an emergency stop; you should always inform your insurance company.
