Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) Sydney


Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) by The Swan Clinic in Sydney

Abdominoplasty surgery is an operation performed to address abdominal wall laxity and excess tissue.

The procedure involves

  • Repair of muscle layer of abdominal wall
  • Occasionally repositioning the umbilicus
  • Remove excess skin and tissue
  • Liposuction in selected areas such as the upper abdomen and/or flanks as needed.

Do I need a full or mini tummy tuck? Or liposuction?

Our tailored approached

At The Swan Clinic, we strive to tailor treatment to you. Depending on your specific situation, you may benefit from:

  1. Liposuction: targeting specific areas. This works best for the flanks. This operation relies on post-operative compression.
  2. Wedge lipectomy: This is ideal for patients who are losing weight and have hanging tissue. This procedure does not involve any muscle surgery and therefore has minimal downtime and fast recovery.
  3. Mini tummy tuck: This operation is perfect for patients wishing minimal downtime, it is a two-hour operation and is best for patients wishing to improve the contour of the lower part of the tummy. The scar is shorter than a full tummy tuck and is performed as a day surgery.
  4. Comprehensive Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck: This involves removing excess tissue, tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall and repairing any muscle separation.
  5. Comprehensive Abdominoplasty + selected liposuction to upper tummy area and flanks as needed.

Further considerations include

  • Scar position (low down for bikini or higher up at the sides to address flank excess)
  • Belly button size and position
