Abdominoplasty, a “tummy tuck,” is a specialised surgical procedure focusing on the abdominal region. Its primary objective is to remove excess skin and adipose tissue while simultaneously tightening the underlying abdominal muscles.

The procedure is particularly beneficial for individuals who have undergone significant life changes such as substantial weight loss, multiple pregnancies, or the natural ageing process, all of which can lead to a lax abdominal wall and sagging skin. By undergoing abdominoplasty, patients can achieve a more youthful, firmer, and flatter abdomen, enhancing their physical appearance and overall quality of life.



Initial Consultation: The abdominoplasty experience begins with an in-depth consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. This initial meeting serves multiple purposes: a thorough physical examination, possibly augmented by imaging studies like ultrasound or MRI, to assess the extent of the excess skin and adipose tissue; a discussion platform for addressing your specific concerns and aesthetic goals; and an opportunity for the surgeon to provide a tailored surgical plan based on your unique anatomical and physiological needs.

Abdominoplasty is generally performed under general anaesthesia to ensure patient comfort and optimal surgical conditions. However, regional anaesthesia options may also be available and can be discussed. The choice of anaesthesia is a collaborative decision involving you, your surgeon, and the anesthesiologist, and it takes into account various factors such as your overall health status, any existing medical conditions, and your comfort and preference.

The abdominoplasty procedure involves a carefully planned incision, usually made horizontally between the pubic hairline and the navel. The surgeon removes excess skin and fat through this incision and may employ sutures to tighten lax abdominal muscles. Once the desired contour is achieved, the remaining skin is meticulously repositioned and sutured in place. Postoperative care is equally important and involves the application of topical antibiotic ointments and sterile dressings to minimise the risk of postoperative infections.


Note: Final results may take time as swelling resolves, and tissues settle.
Actual return to activity times will be discussed and agreed with your Surgeon.

You may choose to undergo abdominoplasty for a number of reasons:

One of the most immediate and noticeable benefits of abdominoplasty is the transformation of the abdominal profile. The procedure eliminates sagging skin and stubborn fat deposits, resulting in a smoother, firmer abdominal area that enhances your overall body contour.
Beyond the aesthetic improvements, abdominoplasty also offers functional benefits. The tightening of the abdominal muscles can lead to improved posture and may alleviate lower back pain associated with muscle laxity or diastasis recti (the separation of the abdominal muscles).
The combined aesthetic and functional improvements often significantly boost self-esteem and self-confidence. This newfound confidence can have a ripple effect, positively influencing various aspects of your life, including social interactions and professional engagements.

While surgical procedures offer the potential for significant improvements in health and well-being, it is crucial to understand that they are not without risks. All surgical interventions carry inherent risks, which may include infection, bleeding, adverse reactions to anesthesia, scarring, and the possibility of unsatisfactory results. The specific risks associated with your procedure will be discussed in detail during your pre-operative consultations with our medical team. Our dedicated staff will work closely with you to minimise these risks, ensuring the safest and most successful outcome possible. It’s essential to follow all pre and post-operative instructions meticulously to reduce the likelihood of complications.

"Really informative Consultation. Mark and Steve are great. It was a really nice place and the staff were lovely!"


Most patients can expect to return to non-strenuous activities within 2-4 weeks. Compression garments are often recommended to support the healing process and reduce swelling.
Abdominoplasty is often combined with liposuction, breast augmentation, or other body contouring procedures to achieve a more comprehensive transformation.
Specific to abdominoplasty, complications can include seroma, which is the accumulation of fluid under the skin, or hematoma, which is the accumulation of blood. These may require drainage or additional procedures.
If you have existing scars or tattoos on your abdomen, they may be moved, distorted, or even removed depending on the extent of the skin excision.
General anaesthesia is the most commonly used form of anaesthesia for this procedure, ensuring that you are completely unconscious and do not feel pain during the operation.
