Plus Size Tummy Tuck Treatment Overview

The Plus Size Tummy Tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen and restore weakened or separated muscles creating a smoother, firmer abdominal profile. This tailored procedure is specifically aimed at plus-size patients or those with a 30+ BMI, who seek a significant improvement in the appearance and feel of their abdominal area.

There are several types of tummy tucks, tailored to meet the individual’s needs and goals. These include the full tummy tuck, which addresses the entire abdominal area, and the mini tummy tuck, focused on the area below the navel. For plus-size patients, an extended or circumferential tummy tuck may also be considered, offering comprehensive reshaping that includes the flanks and lower back.

The cost varies significantly depending on the extent of the surgery and the individual patient's needs, but plus-size tummy tuck prices generally start from £17,695, providing comprehensive care and unparalleled expertise in a state-of-the-art facility. Bella Vou is dedicated to providing transparent, competitive pricing tailored to each patient's specific surgery plan.

Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers every client a free consultation with an expert, accredited cosmetic surgeon with no obligation to proceed to treatment. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss any concerns you have with your surgery, the results you want to achieve, and whether surgery can help you reach those goals. The surgeon will show you before and after photos to help with your decision.

Bella Vou will always give you an honest and impartial professional opinion. Mr Amir Nakhdjevani says:

‘We make sure that we advise people correctly about whether surgery is right for them. We treat everyone as if they were our family. We might turn people away, suggest alternative treatments, or we may suggest that they go to a different specialist at another establishment. If someone is uncertain about an operation, we're happy to see them several times, without a consultation charge. At Bella Vou, we never pressurise people or try to sell procedures. It's always about giving an honest opinion and honest advice.’

Step 2. Meet your surgeon

You will be offered an appointment to meet your surgeon again before proceeding to surgery. This will give you a chance to find out more about the procedure, your recovery, and to ask any questions you may have. The consultant will talk you through the operation and take time to address all your concerns.

Step 3. Preparation for Plus Size Tummy Tuck

Careful pre-operative preparation can reduce the risk of infection and improve your recovery.

You should shower daily and stop any aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication, which can increase the risk of bleeding. It is important to stop smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes, which can slow down healing.

On the day of your Surgery, you’ll be personally welcomed to Bella Vou, given a gown to wear and escorted to the state-of-the-art operating theatre. As you will be awake throughout the surgery, you will be greeted by your surgeon and can chat or choose the music to listen to during the procedure.

Step 4. What happens during Surgery

A Plus Size Tummy Tuck surgery is performed under general anaesthetic. The surgeon cleans the skin then makes incisions from hip to hip (and sometimes circumferentially depending on the need) and around the belly button. The surgeon will place the scars carefully so that they are hidden in the bikini line and will not be visible in most daily situations.

Your consultant will separate the skin from the tissues below, then realign and repair the abdominal muscles. They’ll cut away all the excess fat and skin, create a new hole for the belly button and then stitch this in place.

Finally, the surgeon will pull the skin so that it is smooth and tight, then stitch the wound closed using sutures that are absorbable and do not need to be removed.

Step 5. Recovery from Plus Size Tummy Tuck Surgery

After Plus Size Tummy Tuck surgery, you will stay on the ward overnight and go home the following day. A friend or family member will need to pick you up and escort you home. You will be given pain-relief and a supportive compression garment to reduce pain, bleeding, and swelling.

Recovery from surgery  can take up to six weeks, but you may feel ready to return to work after two. From four to six weeks, you can start to slowly increase your activity level as you regain your strength and confidence.

You'll wear the pressure garments day and night during your recovery. These support the scar, reduce swelling and bruising, and help you stay comfortable.

Bella Vou staff will closely monitor your recovery. A week after surgery, the wound care specialist and nurse will check your scar. Your surgeon will check it again around six weeks after surgery.
