What is a Tummy Tuck?
Over time, changes to the body can leave your skin stretched and sagging. An Abdominoplasty procedure can reshape and transform the waist for a firmer, flatter and smoother abdominal contour.
Our experienced Plastic Surgeons will ensure that together, you choose the right Treatment Plan to meet your surgical goals. When customising your Treatment Plan, your skilled CosMediTour Surgeon will carefully consider a number of factors, such as:
- The amount of excess skin and fat
- The degree of muscle separation
- Any abdominal abnormalities

There are four primary Tummy Tuck procedures you Surgeon may use in your Tummy Tuck:
The Tummy Tuck technique used will depend on the amount of excess skin and fat present, where it is located most, and whether or not the abdominal wall muscles need to be repaired.
Tummy Tuck Recovery.
Recovery periods vary from person to person; however, clients must rest for 10 – 14 days after their surgery and allow 4 – 6 weeks for post-surgery recovery. Healing is an individual process but a full recovery generally takes place over 6 – 12 months. During this time, swelling will subside and scars will begin to fade.
Tummy Tuck Risks.
When considering any surgical procedure, it is important to understand that despite choosing a skilled plastic surgeon, receiving care in a premium hospital, and following recovery protocols, all surgical procedures carry risk and complications can still occur.

Your Surgeon Consultation
Meet with your Plastic Surgeon to discuss your desired outcomes and plan your procedure. Your Surgeon will assess your body composition, anatomy, and skin elasticity before recommending the best Tummy Tuck approach for you.
Your Plastic Surgery
Your surgery will take place in one of our state-of-the-art, accredited private hospitals. You will be placed under general anaesthetic. Tummy Tuck surgery takes around 3 hours;
however, this can increase depending on the scale of the surgery. Most clients will stay in hospital for up to 3 days.
Your Recovery Period
Plan for 6 weeks downtime. Abdominal tightness is common after surgery and clients are to remain hunched when standing in the first week. Clients can resume driving and return to work after at least 4 weeks. Your surgeon will advise when it’s safe to recommence normal activities and exercising.
Frequently Asked Questions.
A great decision starts with great questions; so ask us as many as you can to see if Tummy Tuck surgery is right for you. To help you get started, we’ve provided answers to our most commonly asked questions.
Are Tummy Tuck results permanent?
The results of a Tummy Tuck are generally permanent, as long as clients don’t experience changes to their body following surgery (e.g. extreme weight gain or pregnancy). To ensure long-lasting results, our Plastic Surgeons ask clients to be physically healthy, not planning a pregnancy in the future, and able to maintain a stable weight.
How long will I have to take off work for a Tummy Tuck?
Most clients require at least 4 weeks to recover, however each procedure is unique, and clients heal at different rates. In most cases, clients can return to work after 4 weeks and resume driving. Strenuous exercise and activities that place strain on the abdominal area (e.g. sit-ups and sexual intercourse) must be avoided for at least 6 weeks. Your Plastic Surgeon will provide you with personalised advice about your recovery timeline.
Will I need bed rest after a Tummy Tuck?
Yes. Your Surgeon will recommend completing around 3 days of bed rest following your procedure. Clients must lie with their upper body raised and knees angled to reduce abdominal strain. During this time, you can practice transferring in and out of bed, and complete short walks around the bed or hospital room to promote circulation. These must be done in a hunched position. A catheter may be placed to assist you initially as rushing to the toilet must be avoided. Gentle walking and assisted stair climbs (one step at a time, no more than twice a day) can be reintroduced after 5 to 10 days.
Can I shower after a Tummy Tuck?
Not initially. To promote healing, wounds must be kept dry. Clients must stick to sponge baths only in the first few days of recovery. Your Surgeon will advise when it is safe for you to resume showering and bathing again.
How painful is a Tummy Tuck?
Most clients experience mild to moderate tightness and soreness for approximately 2 weeks post-surgery. It is important to note that everyone’s pain threshold is different, and not all Tummy Tuck procedures involve the same techniques.
Your Surgeon will discuss the complexity of your unique procedure with you ahead of time and provide personal advice on how best to manage your post-operative discomfort. Pain relief medication can be prescribed as required.
Does a Tummy Tuck remove fat?
Tummy Tuck surgery removes excess skin and fat from the midsection of the body. To ensure that the maximum amount of excess skin is available for removal, it is crucial that you’re at your goal weight before surgery. This will also help your Plastic Surgeon achieve optimal, long-lasting results.
If required, your Tummy Tuck procedure can include standard frontal Liposuction to assist in the removal of stubborn fat and enhance the overall result of your waistline contour transformation.
How long does Tummy Tuck surgery take?
A standard Tummy Tuck procedure takes between 2 to 3 hours. This time can vary depending on the complexity of the procedure (i.e. whether a Mini, Full, or Liposuction Tummy Tuck is being performed). As with all aspects of your journey, your Plastic Surgeon will provide you with personalised advice on the timing of your procedure.
Do I need to wear a support garment after a Tummy Tuck?
Yes. Post-operative support garments are critical to your recovery. They aid in the management of swelling, healing of your incisions, and contribute to your overall Tummy Tuck results. Your Plastic Surgeon will advise how long you should wear your garment for.
How soon can I exercise after a Tummy Tuck?
In most cases, exercise can be reintroduced 8 to 12 weeks after a Tummy Tuck. This is, of course, provided you have healed enough for the style and types of exercise to be safe. As with all aspects of your recovery, your Surgeon will provide tailored advice on the timings that are right for you.
