What is Tummy Tuck Cosmetic Surgery?
Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a “tummy tuck”, is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to give men and women a flatter, more toned appearance in the abdominal area.
This surgical operation primarily involves the removal of excess skin and fat located below the belly button.
But it’s more than just a simple fat removal – a tummy tuck also includes tightening up the underlying muscles beneath the tissue.
This dual approach ensures a smoother, firmer abdominal profile, enhancing the body’s overall contour.
While a tummy tuck can be performed as a standalone procedure, it is often combined with breast surgery for what is referred to as a “mummy makeover”.
This combination is especially popular among women who have completed their families and are at a stable weight.
The mummy makeover aims to restore the pre-pregnancy shape of the woman’s body, addressing changes caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding.
It’s important to note that a tummy tuck is a form of cosmetic surgery, which means it’s primarily focused on improving appearance rather than addressing medical issues.
As with all surgical procedures, potential candidates should discuss their needs and expectations with a qualified cosmetic surgeon to ensure this is the right choice.
What our Expert Tummy Tuck Surgeon says!
Apostolos Vlachgiorgos is our highly respected cosmetic surgery surgeon at Reflect Clinic.
In a recent YouTube video, Apostolos posted a guide to Tummy Tuck outlining the different types of surgeries a candidate could have based on their needs.
“If you have a lot of excess skin above and below the belly button, then you are a candidate for what is known as a full Abdominoplasty, which is the most popular Tummy Tuck surgery.
Mini Tummy Tuck
“If the excess skin for below the belly button, you are only a candidate for a mini tummy tuck. The scar is much shorter, and we only deal with the excess skin.
“Patients who have lost a lot of weight and have a lot of excess skin all around their abdomen, back and hips are candidates for 360 Abdominoplasty where the excess skin is removed around the circumference.”
