Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Elevate Your Beauty

Tummy Tuck

Obesity has many different treatment options, some of which start with improving the lifestyle by following diets and exercising continuously to obtain the required weight, and others resort to cosmetic clinics and surgical or non-surgical options to treat obesity.


It is one of the widespread cosmetic procedures that beautify the shape of the abdomen, especially to get rid of sagging abdomen, where excess fat and sagging skin are removed, and the abdomen is re-tightened to obtain a more youthful appearance and a satisfactory cosmetic result.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) removes excess fat around the navel and torso in general, or weakness in the lower abdominal wall, as excess skin and fat accumulated in the abdomen are removed, and the remaining skin is re-stitched in a cosmetic way to obtain a sculpted abdomen.


Reasons for a tummy tuck

There are a large number of reasons that contribute to the increase in the accumulation of abdominal fat, as we work in the Excellage Clinic to discuss all possible cosmetic options, and discuss all the reasons and expectations for the surgical work, as the reasons include:

  • Significant changes in weight
  • Physical changes associated with pregnancy
  • Abdominal surgery such as caesarean section
  • Aging and advancing age
  • Your natural body type that helps accumulate belly fat

Risks of a tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty carries various risks, including:

  • Accumulation of fluid under the skin.
  • Poor wound healing.
  • Unexpected large scars.
  • Tissue damage, which is more likely in smokers
  • Changes in skin sensation.
  • Risk of bleeding, infection and adverse reaction to anesthesia.


What are the recommendations after surgery?

You’ll wear an abdominal support garment (abdominoplasty) for six weeks after your tummy tuck. This helps prevent fluid buildup and provides support for your abdomen while it heals.

In the first six weeks after a tummy tuck, you’ll need to be careful of sudden movements, and you’ll need to avoid positions that strain the incision line – such as bending quickly at the waist – to prevent reopening of the wound.

What are the recommendations before surgery?
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid certain medications such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements
  • Maintaining a stable weight for at least 12 months prior to the tummy tuck
What are the steps of a tummy tuck?

The plastic surgeon makes incisions to remove most of the skin and fat between the navel and pubic hair in a horizontal oval or elliptical shape, and then the connective tissue (fascia) over the abdominal muscles is tightened with permanent sutures.

The amount of excess skin removed and the type of procedure you undergo will determine the shape and length of the incision. The incision above the pubic hair is stitched together and leaves a scar that falls along the natural crease within the bikini line.

What type of anesthesia is used during a tummy tuck?

Abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia, and it is important that any previous allergic history to any of the anesthetics be discussed.
