Tummy Tuck Before and After

Many of us strive for a flat, well-toned abdomen, however age, pregnancy and weight fluctuations can leave us with a loose and protruding abdomen, no matter how good our diet and exercise routine is. A tummy tuck aims to remove excess skin and fat, as well as restore weakened or separated abdominal muscles. If you are hoping to restore a firmer and more shapely abdomen, take the time to look at our tummy tuck before and after photos to see if Dr Norris’ work appeals to you.

The tummy tuck procedure

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, takes one to three hours to complete and is performed under general anaesthesia. Dr Norris will make an incision across the lower abdomen, just above the pubic bone, and another may be required around the navel. This will allow Dr Norris to tighten and repair weakened abdominal muscles. He will then trim excess skin and close the remaining skin with sutures. This will result in a flatter, firmer and more proportionate abdominal contour.

Potential candidates for abdominoplasty

At Form and Face clinic in Sydney, the first step to determining whether you are a candidate for abdominoplasty is to have a consultation with Dr Norris. You are a potential candidate for a tummy tuck if:

  • You have sagging or excessive abdominal skin due to pregnancy or weight loss
  • You have a high level of fatty deposits around your abdomen
  • You have a protruding or flabby abdomen
  • You are physically healthy
  • You have realistic expectations

What to expect after abdominoplasty

Dr Norris will apply a dressing or bandage to your incisions after your tummy tuck procedure. A small, thin tube may also be placed under the skin to drain any excess fluid or blood in the days following surgery. Dr Norris may also wrap you in a compression garment to control swelling and support your abdomen as it heals.

You will need to take some time off work to rest following your tummy tuck, however most patients are able to return to all normal activities, with the exception of strenuous exercise, within three weeks.
