Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)


Patients with circumferential fat and skin excess and no skin elasticity cannot be served by liposuction alone, so also are post bariatric surgery patients. These patients need a surgical procedure to remove this skin and fat excess which might be combined with liposuction in selected cases to provide a pleasing body contour. Stretch marks can also be managed surgically. A variety of procedures can be used in managing these patients and it is imperative that you discuss with your surgeon which one might be best suited for you. The incision line is made in the lower abdomen after discussion with the patient and is well hidden under the undergarments.

This operation is performed under general anesthesia which means that you would be put to sleep during the procedure. You would need to stay in the hospital for a couple of days following surgery. Drains are inserted which would be removed after a few days. Following the surgery, patients need to wear pressure garments for a couple of weeks for comfort.

Complications associated with this procedure include formation of seromas, infection, wound disruption, thrombosis for high risk patients as well as scarring and contour alterations amongst others.
