What is a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)?
Pregnancy, weight loss and the natural ageing process can leave behind excess, sagging skin around the stomach, which can’t be banished through exercise or non-invasive treatments. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty can improve the shape of your abdomen by removing excess fat and tightening the abdominal muscles.
There are a variety of different tummy tuck techniques – the one you have will depend on how much skin and fat needs removing. It's becoming more common to combine tummy tuck surgery with liposuction to remove stubborn pockets of fat and leave you with a slimmer contour. You can discuss the options available to you with your surgeon during a free of charge consultation.
We understand that feeling self conscious about your tummy can hold you back in certain aspects of your life and can lead to low self esteem, which is why our team of Patient Co-ordinators and Surgeons are here for you every step of the way. Following tummy tuck surgery, our patients tell us that they can finally wear fitted clothes and swimwear which just wasn't an option for them before their procedure.
What results can I expect from a tummy tuck?
With a range of tummy tuck procedures available such as a mini tummy tuck, full tummy tuck, extended tummy tuck and Fleur De Lis, you will be able to achieve your desired look. Within a week or two of your procedure any swelling will begin to reduce - it may take up to six months to see the final result of your surgery.
“After 12 years I am finally able to wear a bikini”
After having my four children my body changed dramatically. I had thought about surgery for years and decided to go for a mummy makeover with Pall Mall. After 12 years I am finally able to wear a bikini and take my children swimming without feeling self conscious. My whole wardrobe has adapted, and I can go finally go shopping with confidence!

What happens during
a tummy tuck?
From your first call or email, we’re here to look after you. Whether you're still researching about a tummy tuck and would like more information, or you're ready to meet a surgeon to see what results you can achieve, our team of patient co-ordinators are here to help.
A tummy tuck can be a huge change in a person's life and our consultants are always keen to explain fully the risks and benefits of this surgery. Thus the surgeon will hold a discussion with you during your consultation after examining your abdominal area.
The discussion will be around what type of tummy tuck would be recommended; either a mini or full abdominoplasty. This will depend on your levels of excess fat. This consultation will be around 20-45 minutes.
Whatever your reasons for having a tummy tuck, Pall Mall is here to help you along the way. You are invited to a pre-surgery assessment, where a series of tests will be taken to sign off on your health and medical suitability for your operation. This will involve a check for MRSA and you may be required to do urine or blood tests.
With your consent, we'd also like to get some photos of your stomach for our medical records before the surgery.
Finally, it's vital you feel heard and can arrive on the day of surgery without any worries. Therefore, we welcome you to ask us anything you want that nurse will be more than happy to answer, no matter how small or unimportant you think it may be.
Our private hospital at Newton-le-Willows will welcome you on the day of your surgery with a free carpark, a spacious and clean bedroom with an en-suite bathroom as well as a friendly smile from our staff. Your every comfort will be met!
Once you've settled in, your surgeon will arrive to carry out some quick checks to make sure you're in good health and have a consent form for you to sign. This is your last chance to ask some questions so make sure you get anything of your mind!
You will be taken to the theatre and sedate under a local or general anaesthetic before the Tummy Tuck is performed. This will take two hours and afterwards you will be taken back to your room where you will stay for the night.
You will be able to leave the hospital the next day however you are required to return three times in the next two months. At week one, week two and finally in week six. The surgeon will want to make sure you are reacting well to the operation as well as take some pictures of your abdomen for our records and so you can see the transformation.
Our industry leading aftercare programme is availbale to you as well, so if you want to raise concerns or get some information you'll have direct contact 24/7 with our nurses and our team are happy to arrange further clinic meetings to assess the progress of the tummy tuck.
