What is a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)?
Abdominoplasty, often called ‘a tummy tuck’, is a type of a cosmetic surgery procedure. Its main aim is to make the abdomen thinner, smoother, firmer, and better-looking.
During the procedure, the excess fat and skin is removed from the lower and sometimes from the upper part of the tummy to help tighten weakened muscles of the abdominal wall.
In certain cases, a tummy tuck treatment can solve the problem of loose and sagging tissues when neither exercise nor weight control programs help, especially after pregnancy or substantial weight loss. It is important to understand that abdominoplasty is not a substitute for weight loss.
Abdominoplasty can make your abdomen well-toned, shaped and flat again. Yet it is important to understand that it is quite large and complex surgery entailing certain risks. It should be done only if the appearance of your tummy disturbs you, not anyone else. It should always be a highly personal decision to undergo tummy tuck surgery.

What results should I expect after a tummy tuck?
Swelling is common immediately after surgery. For a few days you will not be able to stand upright, either. That is why at least two weeks are required to evaluate the results of tummy tuck procedure.
After two weeks you will see a slimmer abdomen. It will be flatter and firmer with excess skin gotten rid of and your abdominal muscles repaired and tightened.
The scar may remain reddish and prominent for about six months or even a year. After that it will flatten and lighten in colour. During the same period the sensitivity to the area adjacent to the scar will return gradually.
What should I expect during my tummy tuck recovery?
The initial recovery takes between one week and four week. This period is dependent on various factors including the extent of the surgery performed, your health, and complications, if any.
Bruising and discomfort in the abdominal area may occur.
In case of bruising as well as swelling a compression garment or supportive abdominal binder is recommended.
You should avoid heavy lifting and refrain from smoking.
While swelling and bruising will normally vanish by the end of the initial recovery period, the full recovery will take between three and six months with scar becoming less notable in one year’s time.
