Tummy Tuck Surgery

(Abdominoplasty Surgery)

A Tummy Tuck Surgery tuck focuses on removing excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightening the underlying muscles. This procedure can address issues such as a protruding belly, sagging skin, and separated abdominal muscles that can result from significant weight loss or pregnancy. Procedure usually takes 2-3 hours and is performed under general anaesthetic with an over-night stay to minimise complications and ensure well-balanced pain control after surgery. Scar is kept hidden under the under-wear (‘panty-line’). Depending on the amount of tissue that needs to be removed, a re-shaping and relocation of belly button (umbilicus) may or may not be required.

Tummy Tuck Surgery: Frequently asked questions
Please use the below list of frequently asked question and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions or would like to discuss this procedure.

In patients with more significant skin and fat excess, as well as splitting of muscles after pregnancy, a full or classic abdominoplasty Surgery will include a scar from hip to hip, hidden under the pants-line with reposition and reshaping of the belly button (umbilicus) and tightening of abdominal wall muscles (‘so called 6-pack muscles’). In patients with smaller amount of skin excess it is possible to perform a mini-tummy tuck (lower abdominoplasty) through somewhat shorter scar without reshaping and repositioning of the belly button.

To maximise aesthetic outcome and avoid contour deformities, patients are advised to wear compressive garment up to 6 weeks after surgery as well as attend MLD. Mr Kosutic will refer you to a certified MLD Specialist so your outcome can further be improved and desired smooth contour achieved.
Tummy tuck is not an alternative to weight loss. Best results are achieved in patients who lost weight and their weight is now stable, but they are unable to get rid of excess skin and stubborn fatty excess in certain areas. In addition, most patients that see Mr Kosutic have also suffered a split of abdominal wall muscles during pregnancy, which causes bulging that is not possible to improve with any exercise and requires surgical tightening.
