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.

Rating from 1 Review I thought the hospital was really good, and my doctor was first-classAnonymous, South Africa, 22 Apr 18

I had my breast implants done at this clinic. I chose Sunninghill because I wanted Dr Padilha to perform the surgery. I’m very happy with my new breasts, and I wouldn’t mind using this hospital for future treatments. There was one issue regarding the price, though. Dr Padilha assured me I’d only need to pay his fee, but then the hospital sent us an extra bill. The situation is being looked into. This was the only glitch during my entire experience. I thought the hospital was really good, and my doctor was first-class. I had one follow-up afterwards, and the Dr Padilha told me I could give him a call if I had any issues or questions. I’ve been to quite a few other hospitals, so I know Sunninghill is brilliant. If the doctor prescribes any medication, there’s even a pharmacy in the hospital and you can just pop down to go and buy it. It’s such a good place to receive treatment; I always feel so comfortable here.

Rating from 2 Reviews I trust the doctor with my daughter's future confidence and well beingLiesl, South Africa, 17 Apr 18

Dr Dower and his staff were very professional on our first consultation. Dr Dower was very sensitive, understanding of my daughter's questions, concerns and gave immediate answers. I trust him with my daughter's future confidence and well being. Very professional staff and environment. The documentation that he provided for further information was very comprehensive and detailed. It helps me to make a final decision and to feel confident with it.

Dr Franz F Birkholtz - Plastic Surgery Clinic in South Africa

Dr Franz F Birkholtz

practice nr 0056537 - 50 George Storrar dr, Suite 4, Old creche building, Life Groenkloof hospital, Groenkloof, Pretoria, 0181
Rating from 6 Reviews My Consultation went very well, felt very at easeKarina, South Africa, 08 Nov 17

Franz, the whole procedure was explained in detail to me and my husband. Excellent.

Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) from R 73000
The ideal patient for this procedure is the mother who has completed her family, who is on her ideal body weight and is stuck with an excessive amount of loose abdominal skin. The typical appearance is that of a skin pouch or apron between the belly button and the pubic bone. During pregnancy the rectus abdominis [six pack] muscles are also driven apart by the growing uterus, this is also repaired during a tummy tuck procedure. The procedure is performed through a horizontal incision in the natural crease line just above the pubis. All excess skin is removed and the underlying muscle plicated in the midline.
Liposuction R 33000 - R 70000
This procedure, performed for the right indications and in a proper facility, is very safe,contrary to popular belief. Liposuction is not a procedure to turn fat people into thin people. The best candidates for liposuction are on their ideal weight with certain problem areas i.e. saddle bags, inner tights and love handles. These problem areas can then be liposucked to sculpt the area and create an overall better form.  This practice performs VASER LIPO as well, the main difference is that with VASER LIPO ultra sonic waves break down the fat and result in skin/tissue shrinking – resulting in a smoother cosmetic end result - although more expensive than standard lipo.

Dr C Shaw

30 Camelford Rd, New Redruth, Alberton, 1449
Rating from 11 Reviews They really made me feel at homeJudy, South Africa, 17 Mar 18

Dr. Shaw was my choice for breast reduction surgery. I chose this doctor because I liked what I saw online and the reviews were also good. I’m very happy with the results and pricing. They gave me a quote before I met with the doctor. The clinic and the facilities are impressive. My surgery went well and I’ve been for most of the follow-ups now. I’m pretty much finished with everything and I’ll have the final check-up in four to six months. The best part of my visit was probably the doctor and friendly staff. They really made me feel at home. I’d refer Dr. Shaw to anyone who wants to have work done.

Dr. Francois Johan Duminy

Bow Cottage, 4 Wilderness Lane, Claremont, Cape Town, 7708
Rating from 5 Reviews All services and duties were performed to extra-ordinary levelsUrsula, South Africa, 09 May 17

I certainly got more than my money’s worth while visiting the clinic. All services and duties were performed to extra-ordinary levels. Everything went together rather well, from the appearance, to staff treatment and of course the price. The clinic is great value for money because it provides good service and treatment at a price that is far better than the competitions. Overall a really good experience.
