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.

“Having to go for any medical procedure can be a bad experience with the wrong institution, fortunately, when you are exposed to quality service as I was when I went to Vive Cosmetic Surgery, you do not need to have such concerns. My experience with them was rather favorable. Their treatment was very good. The clinic was extremely clean, they charged me accordingly and the staff was very friendly and accommodative.

I went to see Dr. Susan F Johnson's clinic to have a Tummy Tuck appointment and I was very pleased with all the good service. The treatment was very efficient as I no longer have the excess fat. The procedure was offered at a good price, so I feel it was of good value. I was pleasantly surprised at how efficient the staff was and how dedicated they were at providing me quality service.

The doctor did an excellent job reassuring meLee-ann, South Africa, 25 08 18

I’d been doing quite a lot of research, Dr Gideon was the first and only doctor to call me back. We talked through everything for half an hour and I chose him because he made me feel very comfortable. I had a breast augmentation and tummy tuck done. They gave me a bit of a discount because I did both treatments at once. Afterwards, there was some discomfort, but I was given pain medication to help with this. I’ll be seeing the doctor next week again for a check-up. The staff was very professional. It’s been a week since I had the work done, so things are still a bit sore and swollen. The surgery lasted 4 hours for both procedures. Downtime was two weeks. This kind of bodywork is very personal and often scary, but the doctor did an excellent job reassuring me. The highlight of my visit was how comfortable they made me feel. Happy with the results so far.

I feel great, and my confidence level already increased.Melinda, South Africa, 28 12 15

I have had a bilateral breast reduction surgery a week ago by Dr. Patel. The surgery was a huge success, and I am very grateful that it was done by Dr. Patel. He was from the first consultation very pleasant, professional, and precise! I would recommend him to anyone who is interested in breast reduction surgery. I thought it is going to be very painful, but after a week, I do not have any soreness, and I am already doing my daily activities. I feel great, and my confidence level already increased. The clinic staff was excellent! They were all friendly and very caring! The sisters ensured me that my breasts are going to look beautiful, and that my operation was a huge success. Immediately after my operation, one of the sisters phoned my husband to tell him the operation went well. The clinic was supposed to be closed already because the operation was done on December 21st, but the staff came in to accommodate Dr. Patel and to make my op a success!
