As a consequence of weight loss or pregnancies, many patients suffer from excess skin and fat in the abdomen which is removed with a tummy tuckAbdominoplasty Surgery greatly improves the profile and shape of the body, and is often performed in conjunction with liposuction to the hips (‘love handles’) in order to improve and reshape the waistline.

Abdominoplasty is performed under general anaesthesia and takes approximately 2 hours, during which time, if necessary, the abdominal muscles are pulled back together, tightening the abdominal wall. As a result, the abdomen will be much flatter, the waistline will be slimmer, and the skin tighter. The scars will be easily hidden as they are below the bikini line and inside the belly button.

For the first week, following surgery, you will need to rest but from the second week you will be able to start resuming your normal routine. Normal sports activities can be resumed after the forth week. After surgery, the patient will need to wear an elastic corset, for approximately 4 weeks, which helps reshape the skin and reduce swelling.

Doctor’s Recommendations

If the patient is in the process of losing weight it is important to reach the desired weight before the procedure. In order to minimalise possible healing complications it is crucial to stop smoking 4 weeks before and for 4 weeks after surgery.

The overall change in the silhouette can be quite amazing, as is the improvement in the patient’s quality of life. Self-confidence is raised dramatically and the aesthetic result is permanent if the patient maintains their ideal weight and does regular exercise.

Results

Your tummy tuck will result in a flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is more proportionate with your body type and weight.

Q&A

The visibility of the resulting scars depends most of all on the natural healing capacity of each individual patient. Therefore some scars will be hardly visible, whilst others will be more so. Nevertheless, the surgeon places the horizontal scar in an area that can be easily hidden by a bikini or swimsuit and the belly button scar will remain within its natural margin.

Some patients are practically back to normal after 2 weeks but some others need up to 3-4 weeksed.

We don’t recommend this surgery if you are planning to have children in the near future because the pregnancy will distend the abdomen and as a consequence revision surgery might be necessary afterwards.
