Tummy Tuck Surgery

Abdominoplasty, or a ‘tummy tuck’, is one of the five most common cosmetic surgery procedures in the Pakistan, accounting for just over 10% of all cosmetic procedures in 2018 alone.

Following significant weight change it is common to be left with excess, sagging skin in the abdominal area. This is particularly common for women after pregnancy, and can also occur naturally as a result of the ageing process.

An abdominoplasty removes the excess skin from above the waistline, tightens the muscles and fascia of the abdominal wall, and restores a tighter, flatter-looking stomach. The procedure is often combined with liposuction to remove fat and improve the contours of the abdomen.

More About Tummy Tuck Surgery

Why do people have it

Abdominoplasty is a very common procedure for both men and women looking to achieve a flatter and more toned abdominal area.

Abdominoplasty primarily targets excess skin (not fat) and is therefore a remedial procedure following body weight and shape changes, as opposed to targeting actual weight loss itself (unless combined with liposuction).

Abdominoplasty is a safe and highly effective procedure that can achieve immediate changes with very little downtime, and the treatment can deliver both an improved physical and psychological sense of wellbeing.

Abdominoplasty patients tend to have one or all of the following symptoms:anch

  • Uneven fat distribution
  • Excess, sagging skin
  • Loss of elasticity in the skin and stretch marks
  • Stomach muscle weakness
