Quite simply, this tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin and fat. The aim is to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall, repair hernias, leaving a flatter abdomen and a narrower waist. This also improves your breathing, posture and health in the long run.

The procedure will change as per every patient’s unique tummy.

Usually, a caesarean like incision is made just within or above the pubic area. You will be given a spinal and epidural anaesthetic so that you’ll be asleep throughout the procedure and expected to spend three night in hospital.

The length of the incision depends largely on the amount of skin to be removed. Naturally there’ll be stitches.

The contour will typically follow the structure of your abdomen. If you have loose skin above the navel, your surgeon may have to make a second incision around the navel to remove this excess skin.

We will position your navel back to same place. Many surgeons opt to move the navel but we prefer to place it to original position

Most of the stretch marks below belly button go away but those above improve. We do some procedures for these so they are less visible.

A transverse incision is made just within or above the pubic area depending largely on the amount of skin to be removed. The shape of cut will change according to the clothes you want to wear afterwards. A navel incison is taken but is hardly seen later.
