Many women are left with excess skin in the abdomen because of previous pregnancy or weight loss that can only be corrected with tummytuck surgery.

Tummytuck procedure tightens the abdominal muscles and tissues of the abdomen. If your waistline lacks an attractively narrow contour, tummytuck surgery can help you achieve better pronounced abdominal definition and greater confidence in your appearance. Dr Mak mostly combines this surgery with abdominal liposuction. There are two types of tummytuck;

Anaesthetic - General

Length of stay - 7 nights 

Length of operation - 2-3 hours

Return to normal life - 2 week

Full tummytuck

An incision is made in the lower abdomen along the bikini line that extends from hip to hip

An another incision is made around belly button

The abdominal muscles are sutured together to enhance core support

Excess skin is removed away

Liposuction may be performed to suction away unwanted fat

The remaining tissues are tightened around the newly improved abdominal contour

Mini Tummytuck

A single incision is made in the lower abdomen along the bikini line

The abdominal muscles are tightened

Excess skin is removed away

Liposuction may be performed

This technique is best for women post-pregnancy who have abdominal laxity but minimal excess skin

Before your treatments you might also need to:

Stop smoking. Smoking decreases blood flow in the skin and can slow the healing process. If you smoke , Dr Mak will recommend that you stop smoking before surgery and during recovery.

Avoid certain medications. You will likely need to avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, blood tinners and herbal supplements, which can increase bleeding.

As you begin your journey toward considering plastic surgery and other cosmetic enhancements , my goal as your plastic surgeon is to provide you the highest quality of care throughout the entire process.
