Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is an operation to remove excess fat and skin from the tummy area. There are three types of tummy tuck surgery:

Standard Tummy Tuck

Cuts are made above your bikini line and into your abdomen. The belly button is cut from the surrounding skin. Any stretched or torn muscles are pulled together and stitched in place. Any excess fat is removed. The skin is then pulled down, any excess is removed and the belly button is then stitched back in to its new position.

Mini Tummy Tuck

A cut is made along the bikini line only. Only the fat and skin below the belly button is removed.

Extended Tummy Tuck

As this suggests it is a tummy tuck but an additional cut extends around the back area and excess fat and skin is removed from the back area as well.

Surgery is done under a general anaesthetic. The operation usually lasts around 2 to 3 hours. After the surgery the area of the surgery is wrapped in elasticated bandages. Recovery time is around 4 weeks.

If you are interested in a tummy tuck, you will need to be guided by a surgeon as to which type of surgery would be suitable for you.
