Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) in Glasgow

Full Tummy Tuck (Full Abdominoplasty)

Full tummy tucks are carried out by Dr Anna De Leo MD in London and the procedure itself is when a large area of abdominal skin needs to be removed, from around the belly button to the groin area. The entire muscles of the upper and lower abdomen are repaired and sutured. Abdominoplasty will correct the shape and location of the belly button that has been buried by the fat. A full tummy tuck is the only procedure known that can reconstruct the abdominal muscles and the best way to ensure and make your abdomen flat. However it will require more than 10 days to return to a slightly inhibited daily life (excessive movement discouraged) and longer for full recovery.

Mini Tummy Tuck (Mini-Abdominoplasty, Partial Abdominoplasty)

A Mini Tummy Tuck is for those for whom the amount of sagging or flabby abdominal skin that maybe removed is not as large as a full tummy tuck. Which means it only resects the skin and reconstructs the abdominal muscles below the belly button. In this case, a correction of the belly button is not done. Compared to the full tummy tuck, the time required to daily life is quicker (within a week) and the length of scar is shorter

Abdominoplasty Anaesthesia

Tummy tucks will be performed under general anaesthesia. As this procedure involves skin removal, muscle repair, this procedure will require suturing skin and muscle, it is a fairly complex procedure and choice of surgeon like Dr Anna De Leo will be key to final result. A full tummy tuck operation can take around 4 hours and a mini tummy tuck can take around 2 hours.

Abdominoplasty Recovery

Post Abdominoplasty it is advised to be off-work for around 2 weeks and refrain from excessive movement of the body like exercise and lifting medium to heavy objects for a month. Sutures are removed between 10-14 days. You are advised to wear compression garments for 1~4 weeks post procedure.

Abdominoplasty Scars

Tummy tuck procedures will leave a scar post procedure. Experienced surgeons like Dr Anna De Leo know exactly where to make the incision so that the scars may be hidden by underwear and swimwear. In nearly all cases, the scars will fade over time (usually around a year later). Please note that even if the scars are relatively small/ they do not completely disappear.
