Tummy Tuck

A Tummy Tuck, or Abdominoplasty, is a popular procedure for anyone with excess skin on their abdomen.

Excess skin and fat on the abdomen can make it difficult to feel confident in yourself and in your wardrobe. Often combined with Vaser Liposuction for exceptional results.

Are you working hard in the gym, eating all the right things, and still can’t shift those last stubborn pockets of diet-resistant fat?

Maybe you’ve reached your ideal weight and are now dealing with loose skin, which is preventing you from having the contours you have worked so hard for?

If this is you, then maybe cosmetic surgery could be the right solution. We’ve created this page to give you all the information you need if you are considering an Abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”) and/or liposuction.

What is an Abdominoplasty?

A firm, flat stomach can’t always be achieved through diet and exercise – this is for many reasons. As we gain weight, either through puberty, pregnancy or lifestyle, our skin stretches to accommodate our new shape. If our weight then decreases or fluctuates, the skin does not always have the elasticity required to return to its original shape. This is especially noticeable on the abdomen, thighs and arms.


The 'tummy tuck' part of the procedure, your surgeon will remove loose skin and create subtle stitches on the lower abdomen to tighten the skin


Vaser uses ultrasonic energy to emulsify fat cells and at the same time preserves nerves and blood vessels. The procedure produces less bruising compared to traditional liposuction methods and allows a greater degree of skin retraction.


Sometimes you are unable to achieve your desired shape through diet and exercise. This procedure targets specific fat pockets and your Surgeon can precisely contour your body.

This patient had a large amount of excess skin and stubborn fat pockets removed to reveal muscles and contours underneath.

Tummy Tuck and Vaser Liposuction procedures start from just £5500. All our procedures are performed at 101 Harley Street by a skilled, UK trained Consultant Plastic Surgeon.

Tummy Tuck FAQs

Most patients stay in the hospital one night, and then recovery takes around 6-8 weeks. During this time you must avoid swimming and strenuous exercise. You will be given an aftercare plan upon leaving the hospital, and our team are available on the phone 24 hours a day. You will come in for a follow up appointment with your Surgeon a few weeks after your procedure. 

Every patient is different, and so is every treatment plan. You should be considering a tummy tuck and vaser liposuction if you are at your ideal weight, but have some loose skin and pockets of stubborn fat that you’re struggling to remove through diet and exercise. 

Vaser liposuction allows for more targeted sculpting when removing the fat, creating soft, desirable curves and contours. It creates less bruising and allows for increased skin retraction which, when combined with a tummy tuck, can yield incredible and natural looking results. 

Every treatment plan starts with a consultation. Your journey with us will begin over the phone or via email, where we will assess your needs and advise the sort of procedures you might consider. We will then organise a consultation either face-to-face or via zoom with one of our Surgeons. They will eventually have to see you in person before they confirm a treatment pan, but a zoom consultation can be a great way to explore your options with an expert Plastic Surgeon. 

Yes. This is not a weight loss procedure – if you have the surgery then lose a significant amount of weight, there is the risk you will need to have another Tummy Tuck to remove more loose skin.

With a Full Tummy Tuck, we make the incision as low on the abdomen as possible so any scar will be hidden by your underwear or bikini bottoms. Some larger procedures may also require a scar from navel to breast bone.

Your scar will start to fade a few weeks into the healing process, and many patients report that it becomes barely noticeable in time. 

Our pre and post procedure care will help minimise the risk of scarring and make sure your skin is ready to heal. 

Following your overnight stay, our team are available on the phone 24 hours a day. You will be given clear aftercare instructions when you leave the hospital, and all necessary follow up appointments will be scheduled in advance of your procedure. This includes your 6 week check in with your Surgeon. 

Tummy Tuck and Vaser Liposuction procedures start from just £5500. All our procedures are performed in top London hospitals by a skilled, UK trained Consultant Plastic Surgeon.
