TUMMY

TUCK

An abdominoplasty – also called a tummy tuck – removes excess skin and fat, tightens muscles and repositions the umbilicus. The scar can usually be placed in the bikini line and, together with the flattening of the abdomen, usually produces a significant improvement.

A mini-abdominoplasty can be performed in either our Melbourne or Brisbane studios and is suitable for people who have a relatively small amount of redundant tissue. An excision of the skin is sufficient to tighten the abdomen and produce a good result. The umbilicus is not affected, and muscles are not usually strengthened as they are not too loose.

Q & A

01

Is a tummy tuck right for me?

accordion arrow

The ideal abdominoplasty patient has tight muscles and excess skin and fat. (This may appear as an overhang or ‘apron’.) These patients generally won’t find a sufficient improvement from liposuction alone.

This operation is not a treatment for obesity or being overweight. Anyone considering surgery must optimise their health by eating high-quality, fresh food and engaging in regular physical activity.

What is the recovery like?

accordion arrow

Most people need to take around one week off work. If your muscles are tightened, recovery can take a few weeks longer. If a mini-abdominoplasty is performed, recovery may take a few days less. Final results are not seen for approximately six to twelve months, with the scars fading over two years or so.
