Home » Body » Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that addresses excess abdominal skin and fat, typically following significant weight loss or pregnancy. Dr. Kuldeep Singh offers this surgery to individuals seeking a flatter and more contoured abdomen.

Make Your Abdomen
Look Toned & Sculpted

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the abdominal area. It is typically sought by individuals with excess skin and fat around the midsection, often resulting from significant weight loss, pregnancy, or aging. This surgery is not meant for weight loss but for contouring and reshaping the abdomen.

Sculpting Confidence

During a tummy tuck, our plastic surgeons remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal region, tighten weakened or separated abdominal muscles, and reposition the belly button for a more natural appearance. This can help achieve a flatter and firmer abdomen, enhancing the patient’s overall body contour. Tummy tucks are popular among men and women looking to regain confidence in their appearance and achieve a more toned midsection.

Tummy Tuck FAQs

What is the difference between a full tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck?

A full tummy tuck addresses both the upper and lower abdomen, involving an incision made from hip to hip. This procedure is ideal for those with more significant concerns, such as extensive excess skin and muscle laxity. In contrast, a mini tummy tuck focuses on the lower abdominal area below the navel, often with a smaller incision. It’s suitable for individuals with minor sagging or localized issues in the lower abdomen.

How long is the recovery period following a tummy tuck?

Recovery time can vary, but most individuals need about two to four weeks off work and regular activities. During the initial recovery days, you will experience some discomfort and swelling. It’s essential to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions, which may include wearing compression garments and limiting strenuous activities.

Will there be noticeable scarring after a tummy tuck?

While scarring is an inevitable part of any surgical procedure, our skilled surgeon will make every effort to minimize the appearance of scars. Typically, tummy tuck scars are positioned strategically along the bikini line and are designed to be concealed by underwear or swimsuits. Over time, these scars usually fade and become less noticeable.

Can a tummy tuck help with weight loss?

No, a tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure. Its primary purpose is to remove excess skin and fat while tightening abdominal muscles to improve the appearance of the abdomen. While some weight loss may occur due to the removal of excess tissue, it’s typically minimal and not a reliable method for significant weight reduction.

Will I have a flat stomach immediately after a tummy tuck?

You will notice a significant improvement in your abdominal contour immediately after the procedure. However, it’s essential to keep in mind that initial swelling and post-operative fluid retention can affect the appearance of your stomach. It may take several weeks to months for the final results to fully manifest as the swelling subsides and the tissues settle.
