The photos below are of a lady in her early 30s with two previous pregnancies. She felt self-conscious about the loose skin affecting her tummy and was unable to shift it with regular exercise. A full tummy tuck procedure was performed, and the scar has been kept as low as possible below the bikini line. The outcome is shown at six months.
Full tummy tuck *
The patient below in her 40s had a full tummy tuck procedure. Her outcome is shown at 6 months. It is typical for many scars to be red in colour at 6 months and these settle with time.
Tummy tuck photos with muscle tightening *
The patient below is a mother in her early 30s with a body mass index of 25. She has a full abdominoplasty procedure with 1.6kg of tissue removed. She had tightening (plication) of her abdominal muscles (no mesh required). Results are shown at six months.
Tummy tuck and liposuction *
The before and after photos below are those of a patient who had a standard abdominoplasty with liposuction. She also had an augmentation mastopexy (breast lift with implants inserted as a single stage procedure) carried out the same time. The postoperative results are at six months. Note that the abdominal scar is still thickened (hypertrophic) at the centre. The scar would be expected to improve over the next 12 months.
