Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)

The Spire Tunbridge Wells Hospital in Fordcombe, Kent has an expert team of consultant plastic surgeons who perform the abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure. Patients from Kent, Sussex, The South East and even world wide come to Spire Tunbridge Wells Hospital to have cosmetic surgery with our top expert plastic surgeons.

Mr Brent Tanner Expert Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Spire Tunbridge Wells Hospital says:

"The advantage of a tummy tuck is that when you lean forwards, before the operation your tummy will sag down due to laxity of the muscles, but after the operation it stays just as tight as it was when you were a child.  If you are a female the surgery is best performed when you have completed your family so the muscles are not stretched again. The disadvantage of abdominoplasty is the long, low scar which is hidden by your bikini with a little numbness above it. Our patients’ age range for this procedure is generally from 35 to 75 with both male and female patients choose to have this surgery."

What is a tummy-tuck (abdominoplasty)?

A tummy tuck aims to flatten your stomach by tightening your abdominal muscles.

You may have been left with folds of skin after losing weight or following pregnancy. Your saggy tummy may simply be a result of the ageing process or it could be a stubborn area that you have been unable to shift with diet or exercise. Whatever the reason, an abdominoplasty from Spire Cosmetic Surgery could give you a slimmer, more shapely figure.

The procedure should not be considered as a way to lose weight. It is better to have a tummy tuck after you have achieved your target weight.

About tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery

During a tummy tuck, incisions are made across the lower abdomen and around the tummy button. Excess skin and fat may be removed and stretched or torn muscles are pulled together and stitched in place. The remaining skin is then pulled down and a new hole is made for your tummy button.  

You will be left with a scar around your tummy button and along the top of your bikini line, though this can usually be hidden by your underwear. If you maintain a healthy weight, your skin shouldn’t stretch again and your new shape will last. .

The operation is performed under general anaesthetic, which means you will be asleep during the procedure. You will usually stay in hospital for one or two nights after your operation and will need to plan time off work so that you can recover at home.

As with any cosmetic procedure, it is important that you review your expectations thoroughly before you decide to proceed. Having the procedure at Spire means you will be seen by an experienced cosmetic surgeon who will discuss your options and the best course of treatment for you. , and be safe in the knowledge that Spire is committed to your safety with exceptional healthcare standards.
