The tummy tuck surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. Your surgeon will start by creating necessary incisions around your abdominal area. These incisions will be placed where they can be hidden by clothing. Through these incisions, your surgeon will remove excess fat tissue, reconstruct the muscle, and trim excess skin to create a more toned abdominal look.
Once the desired body shape is achieved and the belly button is moved to a normal place, the incisions can be closed. Some drain tubes can be applied to get rid of excess fluid after your surgery and an abdominal bandage will be placed.
