What is a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery to reshape the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin and tightening the abdominal wall muscles. 

Tummy tucks help create a more visually appealing body for those who have excess fat, loose skin or have undergone a pregnancy or weight loss.



Full tummy tuck vs mini tummy tuck


Abdominoplasties are broken down into two types: full tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck.

Full tummy tuck

As implied by the name, a full tummy tuck is a more intense and invasive procedure for patients with more extreme cases like post-pregnancy or after a sizable weight loss.

It aims to treat muscle separation, removing and separating loose skin in the abdomen area. Abdominoplasty procedures involve general anaesthesia and typically last from 3-5 hours. Most patients make a full recovery in 4-6 weeks.

Mini tummy tuck

A mini tummy tuck is a less invasive procedure that aims to remove excess loose skin for patients who don’t need major reduction of extra tissue.

Mini tummy tucks tend to focus only on the lower abdomen and patients can be sedated by a local or general anaesthetic.  Since the procedure is less severe than a full abdominoplasty, patients usually recover in 1-3 weeks.

Depending on your condition and desired results, your cosmetic surgeon will determine what is the best procedure for you. To make the best choices for you and give you your desired results, it is important to have the right information and to be guided through the process by an experienced cosmetic surgeon.

The most important decision to make regarding tummy tuck Cosmetic Surgery is whether Liposculpture / Liposuction could be a suitable alternative.
