Abdominoplasty surgery, also known as a tummy tuck, involves the removal of loose skin and fat below the navel (umbilicus) and tightening the abdominal wall muscles. The remaining skin is pulled down and the umbilicus is brought through into a new position. This surgery aims to create a firmer and flatter abdomen. Many patients request abdominoplasty surgery after having children or after drastic weight loss which has left excess skin.
The results of abdominoplasty surgery are immediately visible, but it is important to remember that the swelling will take time to resolve. The scar will fade over time and will be hidden below your underwear line, so you will be able to wear a bikini if you choose to do so without the scar being visible.
Abdominoplasty results are generally long-lasting, however, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise following your surgery to help results last longer.
