Abdominoplasty – Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, or a “Tummy Tuck” procedure is designed to give you a flatter, smoother abdomen. The procedure removes excess abdominal fat and skin and tightens the muscle wall to help improve the shape of the abdomen.

It is most commonly used to correct problems that arise after:

1. pregnancy

2. significant weight fluctuations

3. ageing

A tummy tuck is used to trim away excessive skin and the fat that is attached to it to improve the tone in the muscle wall. Please note this is not a weight loss procedure nor a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate weight loss program. You can actually spoil the results of a tummy tuck by weight gain. Naturally the slimmer you are the more impressive the shape will be post-surgery. Also the risks of the surgery decrease as your weight comes down. For these reasons it is best to be in a healthy weight range prior to the surgery and to strive to maintain your weight.

Abdominoplasty is performed under general anaesthesia usually in hospital. Unless a limited procedure is performed you can expect to stay in hospital for two or three nights. A further 10 days of home rest is advised. Abdominoplasty can be combined with liposuction to achieve the best results but extensive liposuction may need to be done at a second stage. Often liposuction to the flanks can help to shrink your waistline further and it may be possible to combine this with your tummy tuck procedure. As with any procedure it is best to have a consult with Dr Scamp as he will be able to advise of the course of action to achieve your desired results.

For further information please visit the site of Dr. Terrance Scamp, or phone our office for a consult.
