When excess belly fat is resistant to diet and exercise, it can be problematic. You could also have lax, hanging skin around your abdomen after significantly decreasing weight, which is unaffected by leading a healthy, active lifestyle. Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery), which removes excess skin and fat from the torso to reveal a tighter, smaller core, is intended to treat these issues. Patients can feel secure and at ease with their flatter, more appealing abdominal appearance by changing the contours of the belly.



By creating a horizontal incision along the bikini line and a second one near the belly button, this procedure treats the entire abdominal region.


This procedure just addresses the lower abdomen. Lower than the bikini line, a smaller incision is made.


Skin laxity in the thighs and abdomen can be treated with the lateral tension technique. A single curved incision is used to lateralize suture abdominal muscles.


In the reverse method, a chevron incision is made right below the breasts to address the upper abdomen.


Modified tummy tuck surgery is completely personalised for each patient and addresses their unique demands and objectives. A procedure with few incisions is employed. Your therapy can consist of:

  • Reconfiguring the navel to the appropriate location and contour
  • Stimulating postoperative weight loss
  • Strengthening the torso


The majority of patients go back home the same day as their abdominal surgery. Swelling, bruising, pain, and numbness in the affected area are typical adverse reactions. Following a stomach tuck, changes in sensation in the lower abdomen are frequent and can continue for days to months. Bruising, pain, and swelling will all significantly lessen over the first few weeks of recuperation, however swelling may not completely go away for several months.

Five to ten days following surgery, non-dissolvable sutures and surgical drains will be taken out. To encourage a quicker and healthier recovery, a compression garment must be worn for several weeks around the stomach. Compression supports the abdominal tissues as they heal after surgery while also assisting in controlling and reducing swelling.

Although recovery times will vary, patients should prepare to miss one week of work. Although patients will be urged to walk and move around frequently to promote good blood flow as the body heals, strenuous activity and exercise will need to be avoided for the first few weeks of recovery. However, stooping and applying pressure to the wound or other affected areas might slow or prevent healing. The majority of patients can start exercising again in four to six weeks, but if the abdominal wall was repaired during the treatment, extra care and time will be required.

Although ultimate outcomes will take some time to materialise, results will be apparent right away. As the swelling continues to go down, the final results could take up to six months. Over the course of a year, the incision scars will initially seem red and swollen before gradually turning into fine white lines. It may take two to three years for scars to fully mature.

Good candidates for an abdominoplasty will have loose abdominal skin, extra belly fat, abdominal separation, or, if the patient has previously given birth, an unfavourable C-section scar. A non-smoker in good health who has reasonable expectations for the operation will make the best candidate. All female patients should be done getting pregnant because further pregnancy could have negative effects. Patients should hold off on having an abdominoplasty for at least six to twelve months after they have finished breastfeeding.

If you are a good candidate for the procedure, we will conduct an in-person evaluation during an initial visit.

Scars from an abdominal plasty are visible above the pubic area and around the navel. Due to its location inside the belly button, the scar that surrounds the navel is often not evident. The bikini line is the location of the horizontal scar left by the skin excision, making it simple to conceal with clothing. The scar will span the middle from one side to the other, curving down somewhat towards the centre. Each patient’s scar will be a different length. In order to ensure the least amount of scarring possible, we will work with you to encourage a healthy and favourable healing process after the treatment.

For a thorough approach to body shaping, lipoabdominoplasty combines an abdominoplasty with liposuction. Liposuction is an excellent option for patients with mild to moderate abdominal fat that has resisted weight loss and exercise. A conventional abdominoplasty is frequently advised for patients who have loose abdominal skin and little to no abdominal fat. After a face-to-face assessment, we’ll decide which choice is best for you.

Absolutely. A mommy makeover operation, which addresses several areas for total body rejuvenation, may include an abdominoplasty. A breast lift, breast augmentation, or liposuction in other parts of the body are frequently combined with an abdominal plasty. If you are interested in additional procedures, please let us know during your initial appointment so we can design a customised treatment plan that satisfies all of your requirements.

A little tummy tuck, also known as a minor abdominoplasty, is a common treatment that solely targets the lower abdomen to produce a tighter, thinner stomach. Patients who need a minor tummy tuck have loose skin, extra fat, and abdominal separation below the navel. Traditional abdominoplasty patients are better candidates if they have any postpartum or weight loss difficulties above and below the navel.
