Tummy Tuck

About Tummy Tuck Surgery

The tummy tuck procedure is particularly popular with new mums and with those women who have lost a significant amount of weight and have been left with excess, loose skin. The surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic and is used to remove any excess skin and fatty tissue, reshape the area and create a slimmer, smoother and tighter abdominal area. A tummy tuck can be combined with liposuction for those women who are looking to achieve a slimmer waistline*.

Feeling self-conscious about your figure can make it really difficult to be confident in yourself and can even stop you wearing outfits you'd love to look good in. Having a firm, flat stomach can make a huge difference to the way you feel and when it's not possible to achieve this through diet and exercise alone, Tummy Tuck surgery can be the right option.

Our Tummy Tuck patients are often mothers who have had children or men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight in a short amount of time.

The first step to a new, more confident you is a free consultation with a member from our qualified team. During this initial session, you will be invited to ask all your questions to ensure you are happy and comfortable, we will discuss the procedure itself and our excellent aftercare.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is Tummy Tuck surgery (Abdominoplasty) right for me?

It’s important to understand that Tummy Tuck surgery is performed to tighten and remove the loose, excess skin gained from pregnancy or dramatic weight loss, usually leaving the Cosmetic Surgical option regarded as the best solution.

What does the procedure entail and how long does it take?  

It is performed under a general anaesthetic and tends to take around two hours. You will be required to stay in hospital for one to two nights so your Cosmetic Surgeon can ensure you’re recovering as expected.

Your Cosmetic Surgeon will make an incision across the base of your stomach, from hip to hip before repairing, repositioning and tightening the damaged, stretched abdominal muscles with internal stitches.

Your Cosmetic Surgeon will then remove any excess skin before pulling the remaining skin into position and stitching back into place*. This is followed by an extensive aftercare programme.

Am I too old / young for a Tummy Tuck?  

As an ethical Cosmetic Surgery provider, we do not perform Cosmetic Surgery on people under 18. We do not set an upper age limit for Tummy Tuck surgery. However, the older we get the longer it takes our bodies to recover, so your Cosmetic Surgeon will assess your current physical health and medical history to ensure you’re fit and well enough to undergo surgery.
 

Are the results of Tummy Tuck surgery permanent?  

The results of Tummy Tuck surgery will last for many years. Our bodies change as we get older, so you may find that your skin loses some of its elasticity.

Should I wait until after I’ve had children to have the procedure?

Because our bodies change dramatically during pregnancy, if you plan to have a family we recommend waiting to have Tummy Tuck surgery. However, this is not a medical requirement and is something you should discuss with your Cosmetic Surgeon.

Do I need to be at my ideal weight before surgery?  

Yes. Tummy Tuck surgery is not a recommended weight loss method as it primarily tightens loose skin on the stomach.  If you have the surgery then lose a significant amount of weight, you may find that you need to have another Tummy Tuck to remove further loose skin.

Will a Tummy Tuck get rid of stretch marks?  

In some cases it can but we can’t guarantee this. Because the surgery involves pulling the skin taut and removing any excess, for some people the appearance of stretch marks can be reduced.

How long will it take me to fully recover?

Full recovery from Tummy Tuck surgery usually takes between six and eight weeks during this time you are required to wear a light support garment. Some bruising and swelling is expected.  It’s important that you attend your post-operative follow up appointments.  You will need to take up to two weeks off work following Tummy Tuck surgery.  It’s likely you will need help with daily chores during the first week to avoid putting unnecessary strain on the lower abdominal area.  In the first six weeks you should avoid any strenuous activities.

Will I be left with scars?  

The incision will be made as low on the abdomen as possible so any scar will sit below your hip line and be hidden by your underwear or bikini bottoms. The scar will be visible in the first few weeks but should fade quickly until it’s barely noticeable. If you’re worried about scarring, please talk to your Cosmetic Surgeon and read about our highly effective scar revision treatment.

What are the risks?  

The risks with Tummy Tuck surgery are the same as with any surgical procedure performed under a general anaesthetic. However, your Cosmetic Surgeon will talk you through these before you make any decisions.
 

Do I need to take any long-term precautions after Tummy Tuck surgery?

You don’t need to take any long-term precautions, however you will need to avoid any strenuous exercise in the first six to eight weeks.

How do I choose a reputable surgeon?  

It is important that your Cosmetic Surgeon is fully qualified and experienced. To ensure your Cosmetic Surgeon is reputable, ensure the clinic is registered with The Care Quality Commission (CQC) or The Healthcare Inspectorate Wales (HIW). You should also look for Cosmetic Surgeons who are registered with The General Medical Council (GMC) and ask if they are carrying out Cosmetic Surgery procedures on a daily basis.

What aftercare is available to me?  

Your full and quick recovery is our main priority, that’s why you will be seen by a fully trained, qualified medical professional to understand the recovery process and aftercare. Following your Tummy Tuck procedure, you will stay in hospital overnight so we can monitor your progress and ensure you’re recovering as expected. When you’re ready to go home we’ll give you printed advice to take with you, as well as a number to call 24 hours a day if you have any questions or concerns. Follow up appointments will be arranged and it’s imperative you attend these so you can receive ongoing aftercare from your team of medical professionals.
