About the procedure
An abdominoplasty, also known as a ‘tummy tuck’, is a surgical procedure to enhance the appearance of the midriff area by removing fat and excess skin and tightening the muscles.
Why get an abdominoplasty?
Once skin stretches and muscles are weakened or distended, dieting and exercise alone do not restore the original shape of the abdomen. An abdominoplasty is a permanent solution to enhance the appearance and tone of the stomach, but it is not a quick-fix alternative to weight loss. It is, however, most suitable after significant weight loss or pregnancy, especially for those who have stretchmarks and lost skin elasticity.

Types of abdominoplasty
There are different tummy tuck surgeries depending on the type of procedure you require. We offer full abdominoplasty surgery and mini abdominoplasty surgery.
Besides firming up the abdomen, this revitalising contouring surgery can alleviate pain, improve bladder function and restore comfort. Tummy tucks can be combined with liposuction to get rid of small amounts of stubborn tummy fat and can create a smoother, more sculptured look. A tummy tuck provides a renewed sense of physical confidence.
