Tummy Tuck - Abdominoplasty

A Tummy Tuck is the right option for you if you have been through multiple pregnancies, experienced significant weight loss or if simple aging has caused your belly to protrude and sag. Hernia removal and genetic reasons can also cause the skin to sag. Whatever the reason is, a tummy tuck – medically known as Abdominoplasty – can effectively improve the appearance of the abdomen and makes it look flatter and taut.

What is Tummy Tuck?

Tummy tuck in Dubai is a surgical procedure which removes excess fat and skin from the abdominal area and tightens of the abdominal muscles. In this way, the targeted area becomes slim, toned and sculpted. It can be combined with Liposuction for a perfectly contoured stomach and is customized for every individual.

During your pre-op visit, a plastic surgeon will guide you about all the important factors associated with the surgery like which technique is suitable for you and what you can expect from the surgery.

  • Get all the prescribed lab tests done.
  • Follow a healthy diet regimen.

How Tummy Tuck is Performed?


The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and the duration varies from one patient to another depending on several factors like extent and type of surgery. The steps for a tummy tuck procedure are:

Step#1- Administering anesthesia is the first step of the surgery. Usually, this surgery is performed under general anesthesia but if performed using the endoscopic method, local anesthesia can also be an option.
Step#2 - Then the surgeon will make incisions at the appropriate sites. The length and site for incisions vary according to the type of surgery. Incisions are made:

  • Horizontally between the belly button and pubic hairline and around the navel for full or traditional abdominoplasty.
  • Horizontally between the navel and pubic hairline only for a mini-abdominoplasty.
  • Few small incisions are made in or around the belly button and along the pubic line for the endoscopic tummy tuck.

Step3# - Then the surgeon will make the required alterations for improving the appearance of the abdomen which include:

  • Removal of excess skin and fat and tightening of abdominal muscles in full abdominoplasty
  • Removal of excess skin and fat in lower abdomen and tightening of abdominal muscles in mini-abdominoplasty
  • Tightening of abdominal muscles only in endoscopic abdominoplasty

Step#4 - Finally, incisions are closed with stitches.
