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 love my new bodyMariette, South Africa, 14 12 20

After having a gastrectomy in 2012 (70% of my stomach removed due to ulcers) followed by a laparotomy 2016 (spontaneous perforation of my colon creating an abscess in my abdomen) I was left scared and feeling like Frankenstein’s bride. My stomach was badly scarred and it left me feeling very self-conscious and ashamed of my body. In October 2020 Dr Vadia performed a tummy tuck with liposuction (back, abdomen & fat graft on buttock & left side abdomen) as well as a Bilateral Augmentation Mastopexy. Dr Vadia definitely had his work cut out for him and the procedures were done in Rosebank Clinic on 1 October 2020. I can honestly say that I had minimal pain post-surgery and my recovery process was a breeze. All credit to Dr Vadia! I wish to thank Dr Vadia for the excellent work performed on me and for being so supportive and professional through the whole process. I appreciate all the extra effort (way and beyond!) in always being there for me with his friendly smile. I love my new body and I owe it all to Dr Vadia and his attention to detail and perfection. Last but definitely not least, thank you, Judy, for taking good care of me post-surgery. I am yet to come across another person as caring, compassionate and dedicated to her work as she is. She played a huge part in my quick recovery and I am very grateful that she was there to share the journey with me. I will highly recommend Dr Vadia and will not consider any other doctor should I decide to have more procedures done.

The experience was top notch and I felt like I was in excellent care with a skilled surgeonGS, South Africa, 09 12 20

Had lipo section and ab etching 24 hours ago. So far so good, limited discomfort. Dr Padilha, his anesthesiologist Dr Mooruth (who really is excellent), Diana the RN and the entire staff were fantastic. Obviously, it is too early to comment on the final result, but the experience was top notch and I felt like I was in excellent care with a skilled surgeon and top-notch anesthesiologist. Based upon my experience thus far Dr Padilha clearly is five stars.

I’m completely blown away by my results 6 weeks laterHati, South Africa, 27 01 21

I had a tummy tuck and liposuction done on the 11th of December 2020. I’m completely blown away by my results 6 weeks later, my stomach is flat, I have a better shape to my body (I was square prior) and the scar looks like someone just scratched me. From start to end Dr Maresky made the experience expectational pleasant. His service is professional and his friendly and enthusiastic personality made the experience 10 times better as I was nervous. I will forever be grateful to him for this experience.
