What is Tummy Tuck?

Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a cosmetic surgery used to make the abdomen thinner and firmer. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall.

 

Is it painful?

It is done under local anaesthesia, meaning you are fully awake but you will receive medicine to numb the area to block the pain.

 

What are the risks?

Risks specific to tummy tuck surgery include:

  1. Temporary numbness
  2. Bruising
  3. Swelling
  4. Discomfort

Do tummy tuck scars fade?

Scar removal cream will help to minimize the appearance of the scars, but the scars won’t completely go away. If your scar does not fade, we have way to improve the scar appearance with laser treatments.

How long do tummy tuck results last?

It is long-lasting results as long as you maintain a steady weight. Immediately following a tummy tuck, loose, sagging skin should be gone, although some swelling will continue and gradually decrease over a period of several weeks.
