A tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin and fatty tissue in order to give a flatter appearance to the stomach. Tummy tucks, also known as abdominoplasties, are ideal for patients who are not excessively overweight but suffer from an overhang of skin around the abdomen.
Performed under general anaesthetic, tummy tucks involve a horizontal incision being made just above the pubic area between the hip bones. Skin and fatty tissue is separated from the muscle and the area is tightened, with the excess skin and fatty tissues then being pulled downwards and removed.
If required, liposuction may also be performed to the problem area during the tummy tuck to remove further excess fat.
Tummy Tuck Recovery
Following your tummy tuck, there will be a scar present across the lower abdomen, but this will gradually fade. You may experience moderate tissue swelling for several months, but this will disappear with time. There may also be a sensation reduction just above the pubic area.
Once your tummy tuck recovery is complete however, you'll benefit from a more attractive figure and the ability to wear a wider selection of clothes.
