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.

I knew without a doubt I was in the best hands, no pun intendedLynn, South Africa, 12 12 22

Almost a month ago I had a simultaneous "trigger" release of both the ring and middle fingers of my dominant hand. By agreement it was done using a "unique" technique due to my adverse reactions to anaesthesia, medication and other materials. Dr Maresky's parting instruction to me from the recovery room was: "Use the hand!" I was using this dominant hand that same evening and have not stopped using it almost pain free ever since! Generally, I am most apprehensive about having to see, much less be treated by unknown doctors and surgeons. My medical situation is extensive and complex, and few TRULY LISTEN and TRUST my "story". However, from the outset, Dr Maresky put me at ease, asked important questions, examined both hands thoroughly, and answered all my questions. I knew without a doubt I was in the best hands, no pun intended. Even while waiting for my appointment, as patients left or arrived, I had the opportunity to observe a genuinely sincere, caring and cheerful surgeon. His disposition remained the same with each interaction I had with him. Dr Maresky comes with my highest recommendation, full respect, and most sincere appreciation.

He has always been friendly and keeps his patients well informedHennie, South Africa, 11 01 22

I have known Dr Meintjes since 1986. Over the years, he has performed various minor surgeries on myself, my wife and our youngest daughter. His service has always been excellent, nothing too small for him. He has always been friendly and keeps his patients well informed. Always has time for the smallest of surgeries required. Hope that he will be around for a good number of years to come and wish him all of the best.
