surgery designed to firm and smooth the abdomen. The Tummy Tuck has become one of the most popular procedures

fat and tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The result of the tummy tuck is, quite simply, a flatter

a person who has lost a significant amount of weight can often be left with excess skin. It is in these instances
when Tummy Tuck surgery may give significant benefits. The actual methods used vary, and, as in most cases of

Frequently Asked Questions About Tummy Tuck Surgery
Many women find that after weight-loss or pregnancy(and especially multiple pregnancies) that their stomach is
saggy, with an excess of loose skin and fat, while the stomach muscles can be weakened.
Tummy Tuck surgery can re-tighten those muscles, remove the excess skin, (which no amount of exercise would be
able to do, unfortunately!) and even sometimes get rid of stretch marks.
The procedure for tummy tuck surgery is simply the removal of excess skin and fat. Generally speaking, a
horizontal incision is made just above the pubic region. The length of the incision depends on the amount of skin
to be removed during your Tummy Tuck surgery. How this is approached exactly will vary a little according to the
structure of your abdomen and the style of beachwear or underclothes you prefer. Your cosmetic surgeon can be
expected to discuss this with you.
If you have loose skin above the navel, a second incision may be made around the navel. The actual positioning
of your navel will remain unchanged.
Any skin on your tummy with stretch marks may also be removed, and remaining stretch marks flattened-out.
Your surgeon should discuss the various options available, and help you decide which tummy tuck treatment to get
for the optimum results for you individual case.
In some instances, where there is only minimal excess skin, and any excess fat is below the navel, all that will
be required is a small incision. This is known as the Mini Tummy
In other cases, your cosmetic surgeon may recommend liposuction as well as the tummy tuck. Often there is a lower
cost attached to combining cosmetic procedures.
Actual instances of complications with tummy tuck surgery are extremely rare. However, it goes without saying
that it is important that your cosmetic surgeon is a fully-trained and accredited tummy tuck specialist.
Your surgeon will discuss any risks involved with Tummy Tuck surgery with you during your consultation. Also,
you can read our article "Know The Risks Of Cosmetic
Surgery Before Having Any Procedure Done" for more details.
Recovery time depends on the individual, and the exact type of tummy tuck surgery. However, many people are able
to return to non-strenous work within three weeks of their Abdominoplasty, and may even to able to do mild exercise
by four weeks. Stitches will generally be removed over a period of one to two weeks after your tummy tuck.
Bruising and swelling should disappear within about three weeks after tummy tuck surgery. It is possible you may
need to wear a support garment for a few weeks.
Over time the scarring from the tummy tuck operation should be barely noticeable, and will in any case be easily
concealed by underwear or swimming costumes. You'll benefit from using a good scar cream, to minimise scarring.
