Why would I want to have a tummy tuck?

Due to the number of types of tummy tucks there are differing reasons as to why you might want one. 

  • To tighten or remove excess skin after pregnancy or a significant loss of weight.  This is one of the most common reasons to have a tummy tuck, and you can often see significant results if you are using surgery for this reason as skin can be instantly removed and tightened, producing a drastic slimming effect.
  • Tummy tucks can be used if you want to reduce the amount of fat within the stomach area. Having a tummy tuck is not a quick fix weight loss strategy, it is important to keep your stomach in proportion with the rest of your body in order to maintain a healthy overall appearance. 
  • The surgery can involve suturing the muscles together, thus improving the performance of the muscles, making it easier to then tone them. 
  • To have a flatter and more toned looking stomach.
  • To help with certain muscular diseases that might affect how the abdominal muscles might perform.  Having a tummy tuck can help to make it easier to utilise these muscles, so helping you to stay trim.

Tummy tuck surgery is ultimately a cosmetic procedure helping you to achieve the stomach you want.  Because of this it is unlikely that you will be granted one on the NHS.  However, sometimes regular exercise and diet won’t work in reducing your waist size, for various reasons.  This could make a tummy tuck the ideal solution to your situation, and you could be eligible for some sort of funding.  You should discuss your reasons for wanting abdominoplasty with your GP, as there might be a better solution to your problem.
