Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): An Effective way to remove excess Skin & Fat
Mini Abdominoplasty is suitable for those people who have a relatively small amount of redundant tissue. An excision of 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.
Abdominoplasty is the more common method that removes the 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.

Who is a good candidate for an abdominoplasty?
The ideal patient has tight muscles and an excess of skin and fat – like an overhang or ‘apron’. These patients generally won’t get a sufficient improvement with liposuction alone.
This operation is not a treatment for obesity or being overweight. It is vital that a person considering surgery optimises their health by eating high-quality fresh food and be involved in physical activity.
What is the recovery like?
Most people need to take about a week off work. People vary in their recovery and also in the work they do so this is quite individual. If muscles are tightened then recovery can take a few weeks longer, and if a mini- abdominoplasty is performed then recovery may be a few days less. Final results are not seen for approximately six to twelve months, with the scars fading over two or so years.
