Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Abdominoplasty Basics :: Abdominoplasty After the Op
Abdominoplasty Discussion :: Abdominoplasty Complications :: Am I Eligible?

  • Massive weight loss is associated with prominence of loose skin folds

  • These are particularly evident around the abdomen, thighs, upper arms and in women, the breasts may be affected

  • Large redundant skin folds can be a source of infection, irritation and cosmetic concern. They may also interfere with toileting or sexual function

  • Body contouring procedures are available for most areas of skin redundancy and are best performed when weight loss has plateaued

The Operation

  • Abdominoplasty involves removing excess skin and fat from over the abdomen to prevent the "apron" hanging down

  • In most cases, the abdominal muscles, which have been stretched by chronic obesity, can be tightened up at the same time

  • Sometimes the belly button needs to be replaced and will be surrounded by a silvery scar for the rest of the patient's life

  • A long scar the entire width of the abdomen will be present after the operation just above the pubic bone, in the same region as a Caesarean Section scar
