If you've got a little too much flab or excess skin in your abdomen that won't diminish with diet or exercise, you may want to consider an abdominoplasty, popularly referred to as a "tummy tuck."
This procedure flattens your abdomen by removing excess fat and skin, and tightening muscles in your abdominal wall.
Women who have their muscles and skin stretched by multiple pregnancies may find the procedure useful to tighten those muscles and reduce that skin. A tummy tuck is also an alternative for men or women who were obese at one point in their lives and still have excessive fat deposits or loose skin in the abdominal area.
Many of our patients choose to combine a tummy tuck procedure with having liposuction to their waist area to create a new slim waistline.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


What does tummy tuck surgery do? 
It helps to remove the excess skin and fat deposits that appear as a consequence of pregnancies, old age and obesity. When the affected area is smaller, located at the lower section of the abdomen below the navel, it is better to perform a mini- abdominoplasty. It can also remove stretch marks or scars that may be in the abdominal area. If necessary, the abdominal muscles may be tightened by means of a vertical fold in the middle, this will make your abdomen look firmer and your waist narrower. At the same time, it may also help to solve preexisting problems, such as abdominal hernia.
How soon can I see the result of Abdominoplasty? 
The result of abdominoplasty can be seen immediately right after the surgery, you will notice a big change on the size of the abdomen from the first day after surgery.
Will there be scars? 
The incision site will be on the suprapubic area, it looks like ceasarean section scar (just a bit longer). It will be hidden by underwear, and your plastic surgeon will prescribe a special gel to make the scar fade in time.
What is the purpose of wearing the garment? 
Garment should be worn post operatively- to protect the incision site and to promote fast healing and recovery.
Is it possible to get pregnant after Abdominoplasty? 
It is possible but you need to wait at least 1 year after abdominoplasty to make sure that the operative site is completely healed.
