What is a tummy tuck – full definition

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is the procedure of removing any excess skin and fat, with a further tightening of the ab muscles, to create a more toned and flat midriff. Tummy tucks have been around for years and are a very common surgery, with benefits that can make one look younger, feel younger, gain more confidence, obtain better body to breast or hip to waist ratios, improve sex life, recover from pregnancy transformations, recover from extreme weight loss excesses, or even to fit in a more desirable array of clothes, not to mention swimwear and lingerie.

Why are tummy tuck cost prices so varied?

There are many factors that determine how much a tummy tuck costs. With cosmetic surgery, no procedure is the same, and consultations are always necessary to determine exactly what is needed from each patient and how Dr. Frati can accommodate these needs. Once the exact requirements are understood by both parties, and both parties feel comfortable that they would like to work together, then a tummy tuck cost can be identified. When determining tummy tuck prices, there are a few factors that need to be considered.

Which type of Tummy tuck you require?

Generally speaking there are two types of tummy tuck that Dr. Frati and his team offer, a mini tummy tuck and a full tummy tuck.

  1. A mini tummy tuck will generally be cheaper than a full one, the procedure is mostly for patients who have mild excess skin and incursions are nearly always below the bikini line.
  2. A full tummy tuck is for patients with more excess fat and skin, and require more incursions than a mini tuck, these procedures take longer and require more work than the mini tuck.

Are you having a tummy tuck with any other procedures?

A lot of the time, patients make the most of the efforts that come with surgical procedures, such as travelling, consultations, recovery, time off work etc. There is always the option when undergoing a tummy tuck, to opt for a combination of more than one procedure. Common procedures that dovetail well with tummy tucks are liposuction, and mummy makeovers.

  1. Liposuction – Liposuction with a tummy tuck may actually be used by Dr. Frati if he feels it is a more efficient option whilst performing a tummy tuck; however lipo on the flanks for example, can add more definitions and better hip to waist ratio, which compliments a tummy tuck commendably.
  2. Mummy makeover UK – A tummy tuck is often a part of the rising cosmetic craze that is the mummy makeover. A mummy makeover consists of a series of procedures that new mothers often choose, which can involve breast uplift, breast augmentation, liposuction, labiaplasty, thigh lifts, and tummy tucks. A tummy tuck is one of the major elements of a mummy makeover, for the obvious reason that carrying a baby is likely to affect the tummy area more than any other, and therefore changes may wish to be made to this area of the body.

What is the experience of the surgeon at hand

If you wish to obtain the best results from your tummy tuck surgery, you may wish to opt for the most experienced and qualified surgeons and anaesthetists. Many successful plastic surgeons are registered on the General medical Council register, and will also be members of regulated and well-known establishments associated with the industry such as ISAPS and BAAPS. Dr. Frati can boast his credentials as being a member of the GMC, and has also been a guest speaker at: –
