Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

What is Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)?

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) flattens the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in your abdominal wall.

Women who have had several pregnancies may find the procedure useful for tightening their abdominal muscles and reducing skin. A tummy tuck is also an option for men or women who were once obese and still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around the belly.

There are two types of tummy tuck, and both are usually carried out under general anaesthetic

A partial tummy tuck involves:

  • making a large incision (cut) across the lower tummy
  • separating the skin from the abdominal wall below the tummy button
  • removing excess fat
  • cutting away excess skin
  • pulling together the remaining skin and stitching it in place

A full tummy tuck involves:

  • making a large incision across the lower tummy, from hip to hip, just above the pubic area
  • making a second incision to free the belly button from the tissue that surrounds it
  • separating the skin from the abdominal wall
  • realigning the abdominal muscles
  • removing excess fat and skin
  • cutting a new hole for the belly button, and stitching this back in place
  • pulling together the remaining skin and stitching it in place

The operation can take between two and five hours.
