Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

There are a number of reasons that can lead to unattractive folds of skin around the middle including:

  • Pregnancy

  • significant weight loss

  • the natural ageing process

Abdominoplasty or a 'tummy tuck' is designed to give the youthful look back to the stomach with tightening of the muscles and removal of previous stretch marks.

The reasons for wanting a tummy tuck can be both mental and cosmetic. Every woman yearns for a flat stomach to look good but it also may be starting affect day to day activities and self confidence in turn may be low.

Whatever the reasons it is important to discuss them with your consultant prior to any procedure and have any questions you may have answered. Each decision needs careful consideration.

The surgery involves a small incision being made just below the bikini line where the consultant will remove the excess fat and tissue. Muscles around the area will be tightened at this point and the incision stitched back up by the consultant. The affected area will then be wrapped in bandages. 

The operation will require a general anaesthetic and you will be required to stay in hospital for one night. 

We advise that a period of two weeks is taken from work after the operation to allow the stomach to settle and recover with strenuous exercise being off limits for a further several weeks after.

Over the counter painkillers can be used if required. 

You will need to return to the hospital for check ups after the operation and the hospital team will be on hand to answer any further questions you may have.

If you are paying for your own treatment all costs will be discussed and explained prior to any treatment taking place. This will be confirmed in writing along with any surgeon fees, anaesthetist fees and hospital charges prior to admission.
