What is Tummy Tuck?
Tummy Tuck, more formally known as Abdominoplasty, removes fat and excess loose skin and tightens the abdominal muscles to create a flatter appearance to the stomach. It is often sought post pregnancy or by those who have experienced weight loss.

Why do people have Tummy Tuck?
There are many reasons people choose to have tummy tuck: to remove flab, stretch marks or excess skin in the abdomen that does not improve with diet or exercise, to reshape abdomen affected by pregnancy or massive weight loss, or to regain self-confidence marred by stomach contour.

Am I a good candidate?
If aging, heredity, pregnancy, prior surgery or weight fluctuations have left you with extra skin on your abdomen and/ or abdominal muscle weakness, then you may want to consider tummy tuck.

However, it is very important that you are in good health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, before undergoing this procedure. For example, you should not be obese and your weight should be stable.

Another important consideration is family planning. If you are planning to have a baby in the near term, pregnancy may affect the results of tummy tuck. It is important to discuss this with your surgeon during the consultation.

What are my options?
In this surgical procedure, your surgeon will remove your loose abdominal skin and tighten up your abdominal muscles with sutures. Your consultation with your surgeon will determine the best option for you. Here are the different approaches:

Mini Abdominoplasty: A single incision is made in the pubic area. Through this incision, your surgeon will remove excess skin, tighten slack muscles and possibly use liposuction to further refine the area.

Full Abdominoplasty: In addition to the incision across the lower abdomen, a traditional tummy tuck involves an incision around the navel. Excess skin is removed, muscles are tightened and liposuction may be used to contour the abdomen. This surgery removes skin from above the navel down to the pubic area that has been compromised by pregnancies, genetic laxity or obesity.

What should I look out for?

All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Significant complications from tummy tucks are infrequent.

Other risks specific to tummy tuck are outlined below:

  • reaction to anesthesia
  • Hair loss
  • Swelling
  • Scarring
  • Impaired breastfeeding
