Your London Tummy Tuck

tummy tuck

An abdominoplasty, also called “tummy tuck” surgery, is a fairly common procedure in the UK. Aging, pregnancy or weight gain can all cause the tissues of the abdomen to lose firmness and lack tone. If you’re experiencing this problem you might be a candidate for abdominoplasty.

A tummy tuck in London can help to restore a flat, tight, and toned appearance as well as tighten the underlying muscles of your abdomen that may have been damaged or changed by pregnancy, for example. Depending on how much excess tissue there is, different kinds of incisions may be made. Generally the more extensive the procedure, the more the chance for scarring and the longer the recovery time.

Depending on your surgeons technical preferences, they may suggest including liposuction during your tummy tuck to shape and sculpt your stomach and provide you the exact result you want. Surgeons vary, however, so make sure to ask your Medbelle expert surgeon if you are interested in learning more about liposuction during your tummy tuck.

Your surgeon may make several small incisions between the hip bones to do an endoscopic tummy tuck, or make a single incision just a few inches long on the lower abdomen to remove a small amount of tissue for a mini tummy tuck.

For more extensive work, a full abdominoplasty may be required, entailing incisions that extend all the way from one hip to the other.

If you have a large amount of excess skin and tissue on your stomach, your surgeon may suggest a “fleur-de-lis” tummy tuck, involving incisions across the lower abdomen, a vertical incision, and a last one encircling the navel.

You’ll recover for 1 to 3 nights on-site before healing at home for a further 6 to 8 weeks. You can expect your swelling and discolouration to gradually diminish, revealing your fully healed flatter, tighter abdomen at around 6 months.

London Abdominoplasty: Frequently Asked Questions

It’s important to thoroughly understand what your tummy tuck entails, as well as the risks and benefits associated with surgery. To aid you in this, we’ve compiled a list of common questions and answers to give you an idea of what to expect.

  • Can I get abdominoplasty if I’m overweight?


    Tummy tuck surgery is best suited for patients who have no major medical complaints, and a healthy BMI. Abdominoplasty is for tightening and smoothing the abdominal area. It is not a method for substantial weight loss.

    While a little extra fat tissue is not prohibitive, your surgeon may ask that you attempt to lose excess weight through diet and exercise first. The reason for this is that if you lose weight after a tummy tuck, you may end up with loose skin that spoils your results.

  • How painful is tummy tuck recovery?


    Previously, abdominoplasty ranked as one of the most painful cosmetic surgeries. However, improved surgical techniques and more advanced pain management methods mean this is no longer the case.

    If you are nervous about your pain tolerance, discuss your pain management options with your surgeon during and after the procedure. Many methods are now available to make your recovery as comfortable as possible.

  • Can I get a breast augmentation at the same time as my tummy tuck?


    It is possible to have these two surgeries simultaneously (i.e. the “mommy makeover”) and your surgeon can definitely talk you through your options if you wish to combine procedures.

    Bear in mind that more incisions and a longer surgery times put more stress on your body which means you will inevitably need more time for recovery compared to having one procedure.

    On the other hand, you may wish to do them both at the same time rather than recover from two separate procedures.

  • Can I get abdominoplasty on the NHS?


    Tummy tucks are considered cosmetic surgery, so it is generally not covered by the NHS. However, consult your GP. They should be able to answer your questions and refer you to a specialist or clinic if necessary.
