Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
All About Tummy Tucks (Abdominoplasty)
Tummy tucks, or abdominoplasties, help to remove excess fat and sagging skin around the midsection and lower abdomen. Muscles around the abdominal wall can be tightened to help improve tone and function and can be an option for people experiencing excess fat, skin and sagging despite improving their diet and exercise regimes.
We have worked hard to be able to offer an affordable price so patients do feel pressured to visit under qualified practices or destination surgery. Our Abdominoplasty surgery includes surgeons fee, hospital fee, general anaesthetic costs and lifetime follow up care.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)– From $14,500
* some medicare rebates and health fund covers may apply to this procedure
Tummy tucks are generally performed under general anesthesia. Where possible, the main incision will be made under the “bikini line” to conceal scars, however, this cannot always be performed. In other instances, incisions are made from hip to hip, above the pubic region.
The skin and fat are lifted from the abdominal muscles and the muscles are then surgically tightened, increasing strength and reshaping the waistline. Excess fat is removed or trimmed and another incision is made to reposition the navel.
If excess skin or fat is mostly below the navel, then a mini-tummy tuck can be performed, where less fat and skin are removed, the navel is not repositioned and the incision is smaller.
What are the risks?
All surgery can carry a degree of risk. Beyond the general risks of pain, infection or discomfort around the incisions, specific risks include tiredness, poor circulation in some areas of the skin, differences in abdomen symmetry, discomfort and numbness around the incision sites, the development of seroma/ fluid build up, and/or the development of blood clots in the legs or lung.
If you are concerned about possible complications, be sure to discuss them with your surgeon.
