Tummy Tuck Surgery - Abdominoplasty

Here are a list of the most commonly asked questions about abdominoplasty or ‘tummy tuck’ surgery.

What is an abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck Surgery ?

This is also known as a ‘tummy tuck’. It is another popular procedure and involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the waist which cannot be shifted by diet and exercise alone. In this guide both the terms abdominoplasty and tummy tuck surgery are used, they both are one and the same procedure. Some clinics prefer to call it abdominoplasty but most of the general public will know of the procedure as a tummy tuck.

There are three types of abdominoplasty:

  • Complete abdominoplasty
  • Partial or ‘mini’ abdominoplasty
  • Extended abdominoplasty

The results are pretty impressive. The removal of excess fat and skin results in a flatter and more toned looking abdomen. It can also be combined with other fat removal surgeries such as liposuction.
