Tummy Tuck

What is Botox?

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is an injectable treatment that is primarily targeted to treat wrinkles, fine lines and creases on the face. It can also be used as a non-permanent facial contouring treatment to slim down your profile. Botox is more widely known as an effective anti-aging product for improving the appearance of your skin. Botox is able to treat signs of advanced aging as it promotes collagen production and skin elasticity. In Singapore, Botox is used to temporarily give patients a younger and tighter look.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

A Tummy Tuck (or Abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure in Singapore to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen to improve its appearance and shape. It is a suitable procedure for patients who may be self-conscious of their abdominal area and wish to improve how it looks. This cosmetic surgical procedure can greatly boost a patient’s body image and help them feel more comfortable in their skin.

More specifically, a tummy tuck is commonly done by postpartum mothers as part of their mummy makeovers.

How does a Tummy Tuck work?

  • A tummy tuck involves surgically removing excess skin and fat from a patient’s abdomen.
  • Once the excess skin and fat are removed, the connective tissue known as fascia in the abdomen is tightened with sutures and the remaining skin is repositioned into the desired place to create a toned look.
  • The shape and length of the incisions made in the abdomen are dependent on how much excess skin is removed and the type of procedure a patient will have.
  • These incisions are then stitched together, leaving a scar that naturally falls along the bikini line crease.

Antibiotics may be given to the patient during the procedure to prevent any infections. Each tummy tuck procedure may take between two to three hours depending on the complexity of each case and desired goals.

Why get a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck can remove excess fat, poor skin elasticity or weakened abdominal tissue due to:

  • Rapid weight loss
  • Pregnancy
  • Abdominal surgery (C-section or for other reasons)
  • Ageing
  • Natural body type

What results can I expect from a Tummy Tuck in Singapore?

Results can vary between patients depending on the complexity of the procedure required for the desired goals. These results may not be as noticeable during the recovery phase and will be obscured by swelling. Patients may experience discomfort and have difficulties standing fully upright within the first two weeks.

After recovering from a tummy tuck procedure, a patient can expect a flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is more toned and slimmer, and proportionate to their body type and weight at the time of the procedure. Maintaining a stable weight after the procedure can help in longer-lasting results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a tummy tuck last?
For the most part, a tummy tuck procedure is considered a permanent surgical procedure. The excess skin and fat removed will not grow back. In order for results to last longer, it is advised to maintain a stable weight after full recovery.
Is a tummy tuck safe?
A tummy tuck is a safe and common procedure done in Singapore. As it is a surgical procedure, it does come with risks such as bleeding, infection and other complications from the anesthesia administered before any incisions are made. It’s important that your tummy tuck procedure is done by an experienced surgeon to prevent any complications and ensure a successful surgery.
Is a tummy tuck painful?
Patients will experience discomfort after a tummy tuck. Typically, this discomfort is felt most within the first week after the procedure during recovery. However, depending on the speed of recovery and diligence in following aftercare instructions, the discomfort will reduce in the weeks that follow.
