5 interesting facts about tummy tucks

Tummy tucks are one of the most commonly undertaken procedures of cosmetic surgery.

This is true with both women and men, but notably, tummy tucks are popular with women who have had children and are unable to get their stomachs back to how they were before through exercise alone. Read on for five interesting facts about tummy tucks.

1. You can choose a full or mini tummy tuck

Some women feel their need for a tummy tuck is not severe enough, e.g they have only a small ‘muffin top’ and don’t feel that it warrants the surgery of a ‘full’ tuck, yet they can’t get rid of it through exercise alone. The great news is that there is now a choice of tummy tuck available, with either a full tummy tuck (also known as a Complete Abdominoplasty) or a mini tummy tuck. Mini tummy tucks, also known as Partial Abdominoplasty, take less time, cost less money and are ideal for those who need a smaller amount of work done.

2. It’s very popular

Tummy tucks are very popular and in 2015 they were the 8th most popular cosmetic surgery procedure for women in the UK. Even for men, they were they 9th most popular procedure.

3. You can get more than one procedure carried out

Tummy tucks can be carried out in conjunction with a choice of other procedures, which means you only need one general anaesthetic for two procedures, which in turns costs you less and means less recuperation time. Popular choices for complementary procedures include a breast uplift or vein removal, combinations often referred to as a ‘Mummy Makeover’.

4. Complementary procedures

As part of a tummy tuck procedure, many patients have liposuction carried out to complement the tuck itself. This can help rid you of fat that is hard to budge, which is common in the stomach area as it’s generally the last place it stays.

5. Celebs who have had tummy tucks

You may not know it but many celebs have undergone tummy tucks. Those rumoured to have had the procedure include Kerry Katona, Tara Reid, Shar Jackson and Britney Spears.
