Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty)

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure used to achieve a tighter, flatter stomach and to reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the lower abdomen. The Tummy Tuck is also used in the Mommy Makeover procedure.

Indications

Abdominal wall slackness after pregnancy, significant weight loss, stretched or torn abdominal wall muscles, excess skin or fat in the abdominal area.

Healing and recovery

Healing time varies depending on the extent of the procedure and the surgeon’s preferred techniques. Hospitalization is recommended for 2 to 3 days post surgery, a compression garment is typically worn for 1 month post surgery. A full recovery can be expected to be made in between 3 to 6 months.

Excess skin removal

Losing weight is a great achievement and a step towards a healthier you. Skin removal surgery includes a range of body contouring procedures performed after major weight loss to address excess skin folds on the arms, legs, torso and/or buttocks, helping patients achieve a more natural, aesthetically pleasing shape.
