Good diet and exercise is always beneficial but for some people, they’re unable to attain the flat stomach they dream of, no matter how disciplined they are. A tummy tuck enables such people to get the body they truly desire.
Tummy tucks (abdominoplasty) is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat from around the abdomen in order to give the stomach a flatter and smoother appearance. Excess skin and fat around the abdomen is often due to genetic factors but can also be caused by pregnancy and aging.

Dr Constantine’s Philosophy
on Tummy Tucks
I always aim to achieve the most natural looking results with any type of cosmetic procedure and tummy tucks are no different. A minimally invasive procedure that leaves the least scarring possible is always the most desirable result and this is what I aim for. By discussing things with my patients beforehand and doing a full assessment of the skin and fat around their abdomen, I’m able to decide on the best approach.
The patient presented is a 36 year old who has had children and gained a bit of weight afterwards. She was wanting to get her pre pregnancy body back. She also suffered from having large breasts. She was a 38I cup size and suffered from significant neck, back, and should pain.
She underwent a traditional breast reduction with abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction of her flanks and abdomen all in same operation. She was required to stay overnight for observation and was back at home the following morning. The post operative pictures are shown.
What Results Can I Expect?
The results of a tummy tuck will vary since everyone has a different level of skin and fat around the abdomen and skin elasticity also varies. Typically, the result of a tummy tuck is a much smoother and firmer stomach. You’ll be able to appreciate the results of the procedure a week or two afterwards when the most serious swelling and bruising has subsided.
*Individual results may Vary
Am I a Suitable Candidate?
The best candidates for a tummy tuck are patients who are of a healthy weight, who do not smoke and have realistic expectations of the results that can be achieved.
If you fit this criteria and feel that you have excess skin and fat around your abdomen, then you would certainly quality for a tummy tuck.
