What is Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)?

abdominoplasty

Essentially, tummy tuck surgery, or to refer to its more technical term — abdominoplasty surgery, is a surgical corrective procedure that aims to flatten a protruding stomach at the same time as tightening any excess abdominal skin. This type of problem may have been caused by a number of factors including weak abdominal muscles that do not respond to exercises such as sit ups; weight gain that cannot be reduced through dieting; and the after effects of pregnancy.

For many people for whom the problem of a protruding stomach cannot be corrected through either diet or exercise, abdominoplasty surgery is often the best alternative. However, as the procedure is a relatively major one, we will need to take an extensive medical history of clients considering this surgery.

Surgery

In general, tummy tuck surgery will be performed with the patient under general anaesthetic. The particular situation of each patient will determine whether they are admitted as an outpatient or inpatient in addition to how long the abdominoplasty surgery will take. This can be as little as one hour but can stretch to five.

The procedure begins with the Surgeon making an incision as close to the bikini line as possible. This is to ensure the remaining scars can be effectively covered by underwear. Next, the skin is drawn back to reveal the loose tissue covering the abdominal muscles. This is then removed before the skin is stretched back and stitched up. On occasion, the Surgeon may also opt for liposuction to maximise results

Later Progress

In general, the patient will remain in the clinic for one or two days. For several days following surgery, the patient is likely to experience some discomfort. Inflammation often occurs and the patient will be advised to use abdominal support for a certain period of time. In addition, painkillers may be prescribed, although pain is likely to be experienced only for few weeks. Strenuous activity should be avoided. The scars will fade in time, although not completely.

Risks & Complications

As with any surgery, there is the small risk of complications with abdominoplasty surgery. At the time of your consultation, the expert we refer you to will take you through the risks in detail so that you can take an informed decision.

They will not push you for surgery. They will give you all the time and guidance you need to take a decision. They will give you a comprehensive Abdominoplasty Patient Guide to take home with you. This will answer most of your queries and concerns. If you have any further questions, you can give them a call and they will provide their expert advice. You will love them for their honesty, integrity and professionalism.

FAQs
What are the different types of tummy tuck?
There are two main types of tummy tuck available; Complete abdominoplasty (full tummy tuck) – This is the most extensive tummy tuck available and is appropriate when there is a large amount of excess skin and fat across the whole abdomen. The surgeon makes a cut from right across, between the hip bones and will then contour the skin, muscle and tissue as required. Normally some degree of belly button reshaping is required. Partial abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) – This is a smaller tummy tuck, ideal for people whose excess skin and fat is below the belly button. An incision is made (as small as possible), normally at the knicker line (just above the pubic bone) and fat, skin and tissue contoured as required. Belly button reshaping is not normally required.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the complexity of the procedure, the surgery can take between 1 and 4 hours.
Are the results permanent?
Yes, as all results are permanent, however if you can still gain weight in the areas in which you had the procedure, so we advise you to keep to a healthy weight and exercise regularly. Pregnancy can also affect the results of the procedure; we advise that you postpone the procedure if you are planning children.
When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
We recommend that people take up to two weeks off work following the procedure (more if your job is particularly physical). Strenuous activities, heavy lifting and intense exercise should be avoided for about 6 weeks after your surgery.
Are there any alternatives to this surgery?
Depending on the results you are trying to achieve, there may be various surgical and non surgical options available to you. You can discuss this fully at your free consultation.
Are your surgeons suitably qualified and registered?
All of the surgeons we refer you to are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and all relevant specialist bodies. Please feel free to ask the surgeon about his experience and qualifications at your consultation; they understand and support that this is vital information to your decision making process.
