Flatten Your Tummy with Tummy Tuck Surgery in Dubai (Abdominoplasty)

Dr. Adnan Tahir (Tummy Tuck Surgeon)

Tummy Tuck – Abdominoplasty

Tummy Tuck (also known as abdominoplasty) surgery can flatten your abdomen by removing loose, excess fat and skin and tightening tummy muscles. It can also remove some of the stretch marks on your lower abdomen. It is popular following pregnancy, massive weight loss or whenever a flabby abdomen with weak muscles affects body contour. This surgery usually results in a flat tummy and instantly improves self-confidence and body image.

A tummy tuck could be just right for you if ageing, pregnancy, previous surgery or weight loss have left you with extra skin on your abdomen with or without abdominal muscle weakness.

Things to consider before a tummy tuck:

• You must be physically healthy and in relatively good physical shape to tolerate this procedure.
• You should not be a smoker. Smoking slows down the healing process and increases the risk of serious complications during and after surgery. If you smoke, you must quit at least six weeks before surgery.
• Your weight needs to be stable. Slender individuals with extra fat and loose skin in the lower tummy are the best candidates; if you are obese, this procedure is not appropriate for you.
• If you have internal or external scars from any previous abdominal surgery this may also affect how suitable this procedure is for you.
• If you have a significant amount of fat around the internal organs in the abdomen area, you may need to slim down before considering a tummy tuck.
• Tummy tucks are most suitable for those you have finished having children. The muscles that are repaired during an abdominoplasty can separate again during future pregnancy


During consultation Dr Adnan will take a detailed medical history and examine you to check that a tummy tuck is appropriate for you, and to choose the best option, whether it’s a mini or full tummy tuck procedure with or without liposuction. Dr Adnan will also discuss the detailed treatment plan, placement of scars, potential risks, post-operative recovery, expectations and alternative treatments. This procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia. All other aspects of this procedure are also discussed during initial consultation. Please feel free to ask Dr Adnan any questions that you have.

About Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

An abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen and reposition the abdominal wall muscles. Due to pregnancies and weight fluctuations, the abdominal muscles tend to stretch and, therefore, make the abdomen look rounder and prominent. In these situations, the skin often loses firmness and becomes saggy forming folds that abdominoplasty corrects. Abdominoplasty is often combined with a liposuction to eliminate excess fat – in this case is called lipo- abdominoplasty. This gives the abdomen and flanks a proportionate and balanced look.
