The Tummy Tuck Procedure

A plastic surgery tummy tuck is performed under general anaesthesia, or, with min-tummy tuck, can be done with twilight sedation.

The procedure typically entails making an incision just above the pubic hairline. The extent of the incision will depend on the type of abdominoplasty and the amount of tissue that needs to be removed.

A further incision, around the navel, may be necessary to remove excess skin from the upper abdomen and reposition the belly button.

Underlying muscle and other tissue are pulled together with surgical sutures, and excess skin and fat are removed, with upper abdominal skin stretched down to the lower abdomen.

Types of Tummy Tuck

Various tummy tucks are carried out according to the specific needs of patients. These procedures include:

  • Full tummy tuck to flatten and contour both the upper and lower abdomen.
  • Extended tummy tuck – a full tummy tuck plus removal of excess skin from the flanks.
  • Mini tummy tuck – improving the shape of just the lower abdomen.
  • Tummy tuck with liposuction to remove pockets of fat.

Results of a Tummy Tuck

Dr Kohout’s tummy tuck surgery Sydney patients see the final results of their new, improved profile within a week or two, although the full benefits of the surgery may not be apparent at first, due to swelling and being unable to stand fully upright until healing is complete.

Plastic surgery Sydney tummy tuck expert Dr Kohout makes incisions below the bikini line, which reduces visible scarring, although there is usually a scar around the navel. Scarring generally fades to a pale line over about 12 months.

Patients of Dr Kohout – a leading tummy tuck surgeon in Sydney – typically enjoy a firmer, flatter abdominal shape more in proportion with the rest of their body.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Plastic Surgery Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is generally a good option if you’re healthy with a stable weight, don’t smoke, and have realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve.

Individuals looking for a plastic surgery Sydney tummy tuck at Dr Kohout’s clinic are often struggling with the problem of excess abdominal skin that exercise and diet can’t remove.

A tummy tuck may also be the solution if your body weight is under control but you’ve still developed a sagging or protruding abdomen. This can happen because of factors such as genetics, ageing or pregnancy.

Tummy tuck surgery Sydney candidates also include those with unsightly stretch mark bands in the lower abdomen. An abdominoplasty is also an option in cases of significant weight loss or after pregnancy.

However, a tummy tuck isn’t suitable for everyone. For instance, it’s not an alternative to weight control, and can be ineffective for women who later become pregnant, which can separate tightened muscles and loosen the abdominal skin.

Top Sydney tummy tuck surgeon Dr Kohout can determine whether abdominoplasty is right for you after carrying out a thorough consultation to assess your overall health, skin condition and weight stability.

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

A key benefit of a tummy tuck is enhanced appearance coupled with an increase in self-regard that can result in a better lifestyle through increased social interaction.

Tummy tuck surgery not only improves your appearance and self-confidence – but it also brings health benefits.

Strengthening abdominal muscles can:

  • Improve posture and ease of movement.
  • Relieve pain in the lower back.
  • Reduce symptoms of urinary incontinence after pregnancy.
  • Lessen the risk of a hernia.

Are There Alternatives to Abdominoplasty

Sydney tummy tuck surgeons are sometimes asked about alternatives to abdominoplasty, especially liposuction. If only a small area of fat needs to be removed, liposuction alone may offer an alternative to a plastic surgery tummy tuck. However, it won’t tighten abdominal skin or muscles, although it can be done in combination with a tummy tuck to remove love handles.

The reality is that nothing short of abdominoplasty can provide effective treatment for excess abdominal skin and weakened muscles. Certain non-surgical treatments are often touted as alternatives to tummy tuck surgery in Sydney. Plastic surgery Sydney tummy tuck specialist Dr Kohout points out that these techniques won’t eliminate redundant skin or tighten skin, or repair muscle damage.
