What is a Tummy Tuck?
Abdominoplasty is more commonly know as tummy tuck surgery. A highly effective procedure to help you achieve a flat, contoured tummy after pregnancy or weight loss.
Tummy tuck surgery is often combined with liposuction of the hips and thighs to further enhance the results achieved by the tummy tuck. Tummy tuck is also one element of the mummy makeover procedure to help you regain your pre pregnancy body and restore your confidence.
Tummy tuck surgery takes around three hours to complete under a general anaesthetic. Dr Drielsma makes an incision in the lower tummy and excess skin and fat are removed before the skin of the upper tummy is stretched down and stitched closed. Abdominal muscles are tightened by simply stitching them back together. The scar is placed around the same location as a cesarian scar and Dr Drielsma uses the latest surgical techniques to help ensure scars are well concealed and as small as possible.
At your consultation, Dr Drielsma will assess your suitability for tummy tuck surgery and discuss all the surgical options available to help you achieve your goals of a flat tummy.
