Tummy Tuck surgery is a common treatment here at CSP as everyone dreams of a smooth, flat stomach but if your abdominal muscles and skin have become weak and loose as a result of pregnancy, weight loss and/or the natural ageing process, you may find that no amount of exercise or gym sessions will help you achieve your dream look.
Increasingly, both women and men are turning to tummy tuck surgery as a way to combine smooth skin with a flat stomach – thus achieving the body they’ve always wanted.
As a surgical procedure the tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty as also known cannot replace a healthy diet and exercise regime but it can bring an end to the misery of excess hanging skin, of a baby bump which just won’t shift despite years of trying and also unsightly stretch marks which make wearing a bikini on the beach impossible.

Anyone who suffers the misery of excess fat and skin around their abdominal area could benefit from tummy tuck surgery. But there’s a lot to consider, and the dedicated surgeons at Cosmetic Surgery Partners will take time and trouble to explain the different surgical procedures, their likely outcomes and the risks involved.
We completely understand that this is major body surgery, and no small decision to make. The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, involves three basic procedures, which can be carried out as single surgeries or combined with liposuction for even more dramatic results.
The standard tummy tuck involves a long cut being made to your abdomen above your pubic area. Excess fat and skin is removed, and stretched and torn muscles are pulled together and stitched into place. Bandages are then firmly strapped around the lower abdomen.
In a mini tummy tuck, excess fat and skin is removed from below the belly button. But a floating umbilicus – or floating belly button tummy tuck – often suits patients who only need moderate skin tightening but want a smooth and flat stomach.
In this method, the belly button is detached from the abdominal wall and moved down slightly and repositioned once the excess tissue and skin has been removed. With different options available, our expert body surgeons will explain each procedure fully to you in a personal consultation. They will discuss your expectations, your general health and then advise you on the very best procedure – either a single tummy tuck or one combined with liposuction.
Unfortunately if you are someone who wants to remove loose and sagging skin around the abdominal region the only option is surgery.
We advise our patients to take 1-3 weeks off work to ensure a safe healing environment post surgically. Everything heals differently however most patients heal completely at 4-6 weeks post-surgery.
Although scarring is inevitable our surgeons pride themselves on creating results that are natural looking with minimal amounts of scarring. Our surgeons will be able to advise you during your intital consultation.
Many of our patients use the Abdominoplasty procedure as a chance to remove or minimise obvious scarring as a result of a caesarean section. Our surgeons will be able to advise you of your options during your consultation.
