Body Contouring

Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck is the second most popular and major cosmetic surgery procedure, after liposuction, done at AESTHETIQUE. This type of surgery is usually sought by people with loose tummy after pregnancy or individuals with tummy skin sagging after major weight loss. This procedure aims to give a smooth and flat tummy. Nowadays it is most commonly done as a part of lower body contouring procedures. This surgery will give you a taut and slim appearance leading to greater confidence.

Medical term- Abdominoplasty


  • Flabby, over-hanging tummy – exercise and dieting have been of no/limited benefit
  • Excess or loose sagging abdominal skin
  • Weakened abdominal muscles from pregnancy or ageing
  • Stretch marks after pregnancy or old surgical scars
  • Tummy disfigured by a Vertical Abdominal Scar (caesarian section or laparotomy scar)
  • Social and personal embarrassment

Benefits of Tummy Tuck

  • Smooth flat tummy
  • Belly button reshaped and repositioned
  • Thinner waistline can be achieved
  • All/most stretch marks are gone
  • Good firm tummy muscle
  • No chance of future abdominal hernia

Types of Tummy Tucks

Relocation of the umbilicus (belly button) is done following abdominoplasty surgery. The original umbilicus is reshaped and placed into a new well-centred new hole.

Procedures Commonly Done Simultaneously With Tummy Tuck

  • Lower body shaping
  • Liposculpture
  • Breast Reduction
  • Breast Lift

A popular name for these procedures performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck is “Mommy Makeover”.

Inpatient/Outpatient Procedure

It is an inpatient procedure. The patient will be required to stay for 2 to 3 days.

  • Depends on the problem to be treated, surgical technique(s), and other factors. It can take about 3-4 weeks.
  • Initially, there may be bruising and discomfort.
  • You will have to wear a supportive abdominal binder or compression garment. This minimizes swelling/bruising and supports the repaired tissues.
  • All stitches are self-absorbing and buried under the skin, so no removal is needed.
  • 1st week- Minimal activity
  • 2nd week- Out and about indoors
  • 3rd week- All home activities and outdoor walks can travel, no weight lifting
  • 4th week- Back to work, can start a gym
  • Full recovery takes 3–6 months, with further fading of scars thereafter

Permanent or will remain for more than 10 years
