How is an abdominoplasty performed?

In this surgery, the cosmetic surgeon would remove loose abdominal skin from the tummy and tighten up your abdominal muscles with sutures.

  • The cosmetic surgeon would mark the abdomen indicating the location of the incisions, the center of the torso and site of the repositioned navel.
  • A solution of lidocaine and epinephrine, a vasoconstrictor that controls bleeding by constricting blood vessels, would be injected.
  • The main tummy tuck incision would be made above the pubic mound, from hipbone to the other. In a complete abdominoplasty procedure, another incision is made around navel. In a mini tummy tuck surgery, the cosmetic surgeon would make a relatively smaller incision.
  • Skin from abdominal wall to the ribcage would be loosening and then sutures would be placed in the fascia of abdominal muscles for pulling them into a much tighter position. This is the muscle repair part of the surgery.
  • Once the abdominal muscles have been sutured, the surgeon would remove excess fat deposits by liposuction or any other method. Then the abdominal skin is stretched down over the incision line and then the excess skin is removed.
  • Next, placement would be marked on the navel. Though the skin surrounding the navel has been moved, the navel stays in the same place. A hole is cut through the re-draped skin and sutures it around the navel area.
  • The surgeon uses staples, sutures, steri-strips or glue for closing the incisions.
  • In a full tummy tuck surgery, the cosmetic surgeon would often insert or more drains for preventing fluid buildup, which could cause pressure on the incision.
