What is a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to reduce abdominal fat. The result is a slimmer and firmer abdomen.

How is a Tummy Tuck procedure done?

To perform a tummy tuck procedure, first general anaesthesia is administered. For patients with large tummies, the surgeon will cut the abdomen horizontally between the hip bones and contour the abdominal muscles, skin and tissues. The surgeon will place drainage tubes under the skin if required. Patients with fat deposits only below their navel will need a shorter and less complex procedure where the surgeon will make a smaller incision and perform key-hole surgery, inserting a small camera to see what needs to be done.

What are the alternatives to a Tummy Tuck?

Alternatives to a tummy tuck procedure are liposuction procedures, diet and exercise, and radiofrequency or laser assisted procedures to reduce abdominal fat.

What is the recovery time after a Tummy Tuck?

Patients recover from a mini or partial tummy tuck procedure within a month but full recovery after a full tummy tuck procedure will take about 6 months.

Tummy Tuck vs Mini Tummy Tuck

The full tummy tuck procedure is employed when patients require the contouring of the entire abdominal region. The procedure takes about four to five hours to complete. It takes about six months to completely recover from a tummy tuck procedure. A mini tummy tuck procedure is for patients who have excessive localized fat in their lower abdomen. The procedure is minimally invasive and takes about one hour. Patients recover from a mini tummy tuck procedure within a month.

How long does swelling last after Tummy Tuck?

Swelling after a tummy tuck procedure may last for about six months.
