What is a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck operation is also known as abdominoplasty. It involves removing excess skin and fat from the stomach area, mainly the lower part of the tummy through surgical procedure. A tummy tuck operation is intended to leave the patient with a flatter tummy and to remove any signs of an 'apron' stomach or an overhang which is sometimes visible above underwear. The skin on this area tends to be stretched and of poor quality. A tummy tuck operation will usually focus on the lower part of the stomach, below the belly button and may require the belly button to be repositioned in some cases. The procedure is often carried out on women or men who have suffered from stretched skin in the stomach area after pregnancy, giving birth, excess fat deposition or weight loss.

What happens during a tummy tuck?

During a tummy tuck procedure the aim of the surgeon is to cut away fat and excess skin. To do this Dr Barnouti will make in incision on the lowest part of the stomach, where a fold will be visible above the pubic bone. He will take out as much excess fat as can be removed and will then cut the skin to fit back over the place where the fat has been removed from. It is important to have realistic expectations of a tummy tuck. Taking too much fat and skin away can result in folds at each end of the resulting scar which are sometimes referred to as "dog ears". Dr Barnouti will make sure you will not have this problem.

Who should have a tummy tuck?

Tummy tucks are recommended for either men or women who have an excess of fat and skin around their abdomen which cannot be removed by weight loss, exercise or liposuction. Tummy tuck operations in women are usually reserved for those who are not likely to have children as it is inadvisable to get pregnant again after having skin removed, this can cause the wound to stretch and scar.

A tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin and fatty tissue in order to give a flatter appearance to the stomach. Tummy tucks, also known as abdominoplasties, are ideal for patients who are not excessively overweight but suffer from an overhang of skin around the abdomen.

Performed under general anaesthetic, tummy tucks involve a horizontal incision being made just above the pubic area between the hip bones. Skin and fatty tissue is separated from the muscle and the area is tightened, with the excess skin and fatty tissues then being pulled downwards and removed.
Following your tummy tuck, there will be a scar present across the lower abdomen, but this will gradually fade. You may experience moderate tissue swelling for several months, but this will disappear with time. There may also be a sensation reduction just above the pubic area.

Once your tummy tuck recovery is complete however, you'll benefit from a more attractive figure and the ability to wear a wider selection of clothes.
