What is a Tummy Tuck?
This operation involves removing skin and fat below the tummy button. At the same time the muscles beneath the tissue can be tightened up.
This procedure can be combined with breast surgery for a mummy makeover and is performed on ladies once they have completed their family and at a steady weight
You will have a much flatter and more toned looking stomach area with a neat scar in the tummy button and a longer scar low down stretching from hip to hip.
This is carefully designed to fit within your swimming garments or underwear.

A Mini Tummy Tuck is for ladies who just have a small excess in the lower tummy area and this can therefore be removed with a smaller scar and without lifting the skin to the ribs. Recovery and complications are lower.
It is therefore very important to have a detailed assessment to discuss all the pros and cons of each operation and which one is more suitable for you.
How long does the surgery take?
Will I need drains?
How long will I be in hospital for?
What should I do post op?
You should always try to mobilise and this means each hour through the day doing 5-10 mins gentle walking. This helps you to recover and reduces the risk of post op clots in the legs.
You will be provided with an abdominal support post op which you should wear for 6 weeks to improve the result and you will be provided with painkillers on discharge from the hospital.
It is best that you take these on a regular basis as they work better that way. You will need 1 or 2 days of rest and then you must start walking and you may need to be bent at the waist for the first 2 weeks post op but you will be able to gradually straighten up.
How long before I see the final result?
What are the risks of complication?
What shouldn’t I do post surgery?
