A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that improves the shape of the abdomen (abdomen). The abdominal muscles can be tightened, and excess loose skin, fat, and stretch marks can be eliminated during the procedure. The goal is to get rid of belly skin that cannot be removed through exercising.
The operation is generally only indicated for patients who have a good body mass index(BMI), so it’s not a quick remedy for losing weight.
Who Can Have Tummy Tuck?
Both men and women in excellent health conditions can benefit from tummy tuck surgery. Women who have had multiple children may find the operation advantageous in strengthening their abdominal muscles and reducing extra skin. The procedure is also an option for men and women who were previously obese and now have excess fat or loose skin around the stomach.
On the other hand, a tummy tuck is not for everyone. If the patient wants to reduce extreme weight, is thinking about getting pregnant, has a chronic condition, has a BMI over 30, is a smoker, and has had previous abdominal surgery with visible scar tissue, the doctor may advise against surgery.
Tummy Tuck Methods
The traditional tummy tuck methods are determined by the patients’ underlying anatomies, the amount of excess skin, the placement of the skin, and their clothing preferences.
- Standard Abdominoplasty
- Extended Abdominoplasty
- Fleur-de-lis Abdominoplasty
- Mini Abdominoplasty

Tummy Tuck Procedure Details
Before the Surgery
During the initial appointment, the specialist will demonstrate a physical examination, which will be repeated regularly. The surgeon will assess several factors that could influence the surgery’s outcome.
Your doctor will inform you of some steps to take before the intervention. For the intervention to be successful, all of the suggested recommendations must be considered.
During the Surgery
Depending on the technique used, the tummy tuck procedure might take anywhere from 1 to 5 hours. When the doctor makes an 8-10 cm incision under the abdominal navel and underwear, you will be put under general anesthesia.
There will be a scar in the area due to the incision. It is, however, concealable because the scar will be hidden beneath the underwear.
After the Surgery
Before leaving the clinic, the patient will be given instructions on how to care for themselves after surgery. To ensure fast recovery, the patient should follow the instructions carefully to avoid complications.
Drain tubes will need to be left in place for roughly a week after tummy tuck surgery. Most patients experience minor bruising and/or swelling, which should go away after a few weeks. After one to two weeks, many people can return to their job or everyday activities. Heavy lifting and intense physical activity should be avoided for at least six to eight weeks.
