Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck
A Tummy tuck, officially called an abdominoplasty, is an operation performed to either improve the shape of the tummy by removing excess skin and fat or the function of the abdomen by repairing the abdominal wall.
Patients present for abdominoplasties for several reasons at different stages of life and related to multiple reasons. Women tend to present after multiple pregnancies that lead to excess skin or weakness of the abdominal wall. Men present after losing weight and having redundant skin that does not shrink after the weight loss.
The procedure can be combined with other procedures such as liposuction, breast surgery or arm and thigh lifts. It is performed under general anaesthetic. It can also be a full tummy tuck or a mini one.
