Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a common procedure and is a good option for those who have tried dieting and exercise, but with little lasting effect. It aims to give a flatter stomach.

Both men and women can undergo tummy tuck surgery and usually experience good results and a long-lasting change in their abdomen’s form.

It’s not the same as liposuction, although you may choose to get liposuction along with a tummy tuck.

This is a major surgery, so if you’re considering it, you should know the facts before you decide whether to go forward.

The tummy tuck is a suitable cosmetic surgery procedure for people who:

  • Have tried successive regimes of dieting and exercise but failed to reduce tummy fat or tighten the muscle in their abdomens
  • See themselves as having excessive fat and sagging skin on their lower abdomen in proportion to their overall body mass
  • Have sagging skin and lax abdominal muscles as a result of pregnancy (usually multiple pregnancies)
  • Have excessive fat and or sagging skin and lax abdominal muscles as a result of ageing
  • Are not obese and are in general good health, apart from the excess weight on their abdomens
  • Are not planning to lose excess weight post-op (tell your surgeon about any diet or exercise regime you are planning).
