Will a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Give Me a Smooth and Flat Belly?

Will a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Give Me a Smooth and Flat Belly?

As tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) surgery grows ever popular, we have many potential patients enquiring as to what they can achieve with a tummy tuck. The primary goal of the procedure is to remove excess stretched skin or underlying fat from the lower abdomen.

It can also repair damage from hernias and realign rectus muscles, tightening the waistline and improving the look of the belly.

Will the Tummy Tuck Procedure Make my Belly Smoother?

Yes, abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, will remove sagging skin and excess fat while repairing separated muscles, giving a smoother and firmer look to the belly. This procedure will help reduce any bulge you may experience in the abdominal region due to excess skin, fat and loose muscles. If you are looking for a flatter, firmer and desirably shaped abdomen, the tummy tuck may be right for you.

An abdominoplasty can be both a cosmetic and reconstructive procedure for abdominal abnormalities that are caused due to pregnancy, extensive weight loss, tumours or other diseases. The goal is to create a more normal appearance to the abdomen which can be achieved with the removal of fat that can also cause skin infections, difficulty in walking and more.

What Is Involved in A Tummy Tuck Procedure?

The tummy tuck is a relatively simple procedure performed under general anaesthesia and classed as inpatient surgery. Depending on the requirements of the specific case, the surgery can last around 2-3 hours and you will be able to return to work approximately 14-21 days afterwards.

We always recommend that you avoid strenuous activity for six weeks after your procedure and you will enjoy seeing the results straight away with further improvements in the following six months.

Is the Tummy Tuck the Best Option for My Weight-Loss Goals?

One of the main benefits of the tummy tuck procedure is that the results are long-lasting and scars can be hidden in the bikini line. This is not the right option for major weight-related problems and is not a weight-loss method. Smokers or those who suffer extreme obesity will need to consult with Dr. Yunaev to find a different solution.

We recommend taking plans to lose weight or the possibility of having children in the near future into account before deciding on the tummy tuck procedure. It is also crucial to consider the possibility of scarring on the abdomen, even though they will diminish over time and be easily concealable.
