This surgery tightens your abdominal muscles by removing excess fat and skin. To know more about this body contouring plastic surgery, we will provide you with tummy tuck before and after photos and detailed information during your consultation with one of our highly experienced surgeons. Potential candidates for tummy tuck You are a potential candidate if: You are bothered by your abdominal fat. You are physically healthy. You don’t smoke. You have a stable weight. You have excessive skin in your abdomen. You have realistic expectations. You have weak abdominal muscles due to pregnancy or aging. Your body fat does not respond to diet and exercise. Abdominoplasty types Depending on your condition, your surgeon will use the following types of tummy tuck: Standard (full): Your surgeon creates an incision below your belly button and buttocks. This allows your surgeon to tighten your abdominal muscles by removing excess skin. The remaining skin is pulled down over your stomach to achieve a firmer abdomen. Extended: Your surgeon extends the incision beyond the hip bones. This allows the removal of excess fat and tissue in your flanks and thighs. This is prescribed for patients with significant weight loss. Fleur-de-lis: Your surgeon creates an additional incision that runs down in the middle of your abdomen. This technique removes a large amount of skin and tissue in patients with sagging skin caused by significant weight loss. Mini tummy tuck: Your surgeon makes an incision just above your pubic area to allow the tightening of loose abdominal muscles. This procedure is done in patients with fat deposits above and below their belly button. To gain more information on how each type is performed, check out our abdominoplasty procedure page. Limitations of tummy tuck The results of this procedure are usually permanent and may last several years. However, weight changes or pregnancy can negatively affect the appearance of your abdomen. Surgery risks The procedure poses various risks, including: Bleeding Changes in skin sensation Delayed wound healing Fluid build-up in the skin Increased pain at the incision site Infection Prolonged swelling Skin discoloration Tissue damage Unfavourable scarring To find more details, please visit our main tummy tuck page, or contact us to schedule initial consultation.
