Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty

Tummy Tuck

Also known as abdominoplasty, tummy tuck surgery removes extra skin and tissue from your abdomen and restores muscle integrity to create a flatter stomach area. After surgery, your tummy will be firmer and your clothes may fit you in a more flattering way.

Tummy tuck surgery may be right for you if:

  • Pregnancy has left you with excess skin and abdominal muscle separation, or disastatis recti.
  • Your stomach are has expanded as a natural consequence of the ageing process.
  • You want to shed excess skin after weight loss.

The Tummy Tuck Procedure

Before your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon to go over the procedure and discuss your desired results. During surgery, you’ll be put under general anaesthetic and your surgeon will make an incision horizontally across the lowest part of your abdomen. Sometimes, a second circular incision is made around your belly button, which is often repositioned as part of the abdominoplasty procedure. Your surgeon then removes excess skin and draws the remaining skin tight, carefully suturing it in place.

Step 1

A full tummy tuck requires a horizontally-oriented incision between the pubic hairline and belly button area. (The shape and length of the incision is determined by the amount of excess skin). When the abdominal skin is lifted during the procedure, the weakened abdominal muscles that lay below are repaired.

Step 2

After the operation, the scars will be in the positions shown and will fade with time. The stomach will, of course, be significantly flatter immediately after surgery.

The Recovery Process

After a tummy tuck, most patients wear a compression garment or bandage to help reduce swelling. Sometimes, small drains are left in place for a while to draw away excess fluid as you heal. You will need to take some time off work to recover, and your surgeon will give you specific instructions to help you bounce back swiftly.

Important Questions About Abdominoplasty

Is Abdominoplasty a good way to lose weight?

Diet and exercise are the best means of removing unwanted fat. However, an abdominoplasty can be a solution to eliminating unwanted, unsightly excess skin that is caused by weight loss and tightening a “tummy bulge” that is resistant to exercise.

Will I have any scars after my tummy tuck surgery?

Yes. An incision is generally made from one hip to the other along the bikini line, which could later be camouflaged by underwear. The scar for an abdominoplasty is usually placed across the lower abdomen. It can stretch from one side to the other depending on the size of the stomach. All surgery results in some sort of scar and all scars take time to soften and fade. You will not see the final appearance of your scar for up to a year after surgery.

Is there anything I can do to reduce scarring or bruising?

For the first day or two after an abdominoplasty most doctors recommend that you have as much rest as possible. Some patients feel that applying vitamin E or aloe vera to the scar may help. If you apply these creams do not rub the scar for about six weeks because you can damage the fragile new tissue. If you have tapes or stitches in place, do not use any cream or lotion unless instructed.

You should also wear the appropriate post-surgical compression garment, which will aid healing. The specialist 3-panel abdominal binder is available in our online shop with 10% saving, or can be purchased at Dolan Park Hospital, where your surgery will take place or at selected clinics.

The three panels of the binder apply the correct pressure to the abdominal region, which aids final result . This stops fluid from building up, it prevents swelling and reduces bleeding. The binder is fastened with Velcro to allow easy adjustment of binder. Tummy Tuck Patients need to wear this binder for 6 weeks. Larger abdominoplasty procedures may have to wear a binder AND a girdle. You will be discharged in one of these post surgery, however due to the length of time the garment needs to be worn patients often feel that is better to replace the garment.

Can men benefit from abdominoplasty?

Yes, there are now many men that are also taking advantage of abdominoplasty for treating a large stomach.

    I had been looking to have breast implants for a long time, but didn't find a clinic that didn't make me feel like I was being sales pitched to and that weren't pushy, and also didn't find a surgeon that I felt comfortable with.

    I found Mr Perrone via social media and loved his results.

    I booked a consultation with One Health, and was pleasantly surprised by how lovely all the staff were, and also how non pressured it was. I had my consultation and met my surgeon on the same day, and booked my surgery date for 6 weeks after.

    The hospital itself is clean and easy to find.

    My surgery was fairly delayed, but I was kept informed, and once admitted I went to theatre very quickly. The whole process has been straight forward, and the aftercare has been brilliant so far, having seen a nurse for new dressings a few days ago, and my surgeon again today for a check up- and I'm only 10 days post op.

    I am so pleased with my own results, and definitely chose the right surgeon and clinic.

    So far I am a week and a half post op. Dr Luciano perrone performed my 2nd BA, the first I had in Belgium around 6 years ago, however I had awful rippling of the implant, plus I wanted to go bigger anyway, so I had a re-breast augmentation and I honestly cannot fault them.. staff are so friendly and the aftercare has been amazing, my boobs are now big and exactly how I wanted them, highly recommend.

    I am 2 weeks post op. I am soo pleased with my result from choosing One Health Medical Group to have my breast enlargement. I went for a consultation in March at the Bromsgrove clinic where I met my surgeon I was so excited and happy I booked my procedure for the end of July. I got the jitters as everyone does about sizing but the advisors and call centre staff are so helpful reassured me with the sizing and I trusted the surgeons advice and I could not be happier with the result so far. I was in pain for the first few days with little sleep but the painkillers they provided helped when kept on top of them along with advice from nurse and surgeon kept me reassured. I would 100% recommend this company. Looking forward to my next nurse appointment.

    From the very beginning the communication and care I received has been amazing, the staff couldn’t have been more helpful.
    I’m a transgender women and there were a few obstacles with me proceeding with my surgery, my personal coordinator Pamela worked closely with me & the surgical team and in my opinion couldn’t have done any more to help me & make my dream come come true.. thank you.
    Dr Renato explained everything very clearly about the expectations I could expect & couldn’t have put me more at ease.
    I had breast augmentation & rhinoplasty, on the day of my surgery I was petrified having never had a General Anaesthetic but the surgical team made me feel totally comfortable and at ease, the care I received after waking from my surgery was first class.
    The aftercare I have received since my surgery is brilliant and I can’t fault it, excellent communication & care

    After one & half weeks later I have almost recovered from my surgery and couldn’t be happier with the results, my nose is perfect and exactly what I had hoped for, Dr Renato is a rhinoplasty genius.. he has given me the perfect female nose, I honestly couldn’t have wished for better results.
    My breast are simply amazing, I’m over the moon with the results, they are perfectly in proportion to my body and look stunning.

    Thank you so much Dr Renato, Pamela & the rest of the one health team... I can’t thank you enough, you have quite simply changed my life

    Had my BA on 21/06/18 at the London Clinic with Dr Joffily. I’m truly amazed with the results already, I’ve gone from 32AA to 32D and they are changing and getting better everyday!
    All the staff have been amazing, and couldn’t have asked for a better Patient Care Cordinator. Pam has been there for me every step of the way, always checking up on me to make sure I’m ok and answering all my questions.
    Dr Joffily spent time explaining the procedure to me and picked the best possible implants for me, he gave me exactly what he said he would and my scars are so small and neat.
    Before my BA I had such low self confidence and since my confidence had soared and I feel amazing. Anyone who is thinking to get a BA done I’d say go for it, it’s the best thing I ever did!

    Absolutely fantastic service. Mr Hassan Suliaman is a fantastic and talented surgeon. My incisions are sooo neat. The anaesthesiologists were kind and professional and the staff were really friendly and attentive. I was terrified at being put to sleep and the calmed me right down. I felt safe and well looked after. The only gripe I have is the patient care coordinator who I found pushy and uninterested but once she was out the way and the staff took over, it was a wonderful experience. I would recommend them anytime. Great results. Thank you One Health.
