Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a Tummy Tuck removes the extra fat and skin around the stomach. In the process, the abdominal wall is also tightened. Most women after having babies or after extreme weight loss are unhappy with the sagginess of their stomach. They feel less confident about the loose skin hanging down in the middle of their body.
The perfect solution – Tummy Tuck.

Tummy Tuck Procedure
Abdominoplasty Tummy Tuck is carried out under anesthesia and the procedure takes around two hours. The surgeons advise an overnight hospital stay so that the patient is given the best post-op care.
An incision is made in the centre of abdomen and once the loose, hanging skin of the stomach is trimmed, the belly button is re-positioned. The scars heal gradually and fade away with time.
Patients are given antibiotics to avoid any risk of infection. Strong painkillers keep the patients comfortable and pain free. Post surgery care includes wearing a support waist girdle at least for a few weeks after the surgery. Physical activity has to be started gradually and slowly, without putting pressure on the body.
Full recovery takes a couple of weeks and the tummy tuck before and after results are generally visible in ten days.
Risks & Complications
A Tummy Tuck is a very safe procedure and usually there are no complications.
Very minor complications that can arise are:
- Mild Bleeding
- Pain that is controlled through painkillers
- Infection – extremely rare and prevented through antibiotics
- Reaction to anesthetics
- Blood Clots – the risk can be minimized by blood thinners and early mobilization
Things to Remember
The results of Tummy Tuck are long lasting, especially if the patient follows a healthy lifestyle. It is best that you opt for the procedure once you have completed your family, as pregnancy can cause the abdomen to sag again.
Don’t compromise on cost and quality. Choose the best for yourself and your body.
