Tummy Tuck

Linda Briggs cosmetic or plastic surgery information about tummy tucks or abdominoplasty.  Probably, after having children, you have been left with a lot of loose, saggy skin that hangs over the bikini line. This procedure can help get rid of the loose skin and give you back a better figure. Also consider liposculpture and liposuction if there is not much loose skin but the tummy sticks out. Even after dieting and exercise this can still be a problem for a lot of people.

A tummy tuck is not an alternative to losing weight.   Before considering cosmetic or plastic surgery for a tummy tuck, it's advisable to get to your ideal weight.

There are three ways of improving the abdomen.  A surgeon will tell you which would be best suited
to you at a consultation

Liposuction/ liposculpture

Liposculpture can be carried out if there is only a little excess fat.  Incisions are generally made in the pubic area or through the belly button so any scars are concealed.


Abdominoplasty/ abdominal wall correction

If you have excess fat and also excess abdominal skin, abdominoplasty might be the right solution.  Any stretched abdominal muscles can be tightened again during this procedure.  A horizontal incision is made in the lower abdomen.  The incision generally follows the bikini-line, so that scarring is hidden with underwear or swim wear.  There will also be a scar around the umbilicus (navel) because this usually needs to be repositioned.


An abdominal wall correction is generally performed under a general anaesthetic.  Sometimes it is necessary to have drain tubes inserted, to help avoid the accumulation of blood or wound fluid.  Stitches are generally removed from 7 to 10 days   Sometimes you will be given a support garment to wear for up to three weeks.


Mini-abdominoplasty / Mini-abdominal correction

If the excess abdominal skin is restricted to the lower abdomen, a so called mini-abdominal correction can be carried out. This is a smaller operation which will only leave a scar under the bikini-line and not around the umbilicus (navel). This procedure can be combined with liposuction of the abdomen to enhance the result.

Cosmetic or plastic surgery for a tummy tuck is a big procedure and rest and recuperation are vital for a good result.  For options for tummy tuck surgery see below for the nearest options to the UK.  Bear in mind if you travel further to save money, you will not feel like a long haul flight after this procedure unless you stay for several weeks before returning.
