Tummy Tuck Procedure

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure where the surgeon will make an incision from hip to hip just above your bikini line before proceeding to detach the skin from the abdominal wall. He will then realign the abdominal muscles and extract excess fat before tightening the skin and pulling everything together before restitching.

This procedure is done under sedation, on a day basis and typically takes a couple of hours to complete. Following the surgery you will be taken into our onsite recovery room where you will be monitored by our Nurse and allowed to rest before being free to go home on the same day.
