Dark / Black / Afro Caribbean Skin Tummy Tuck Treatment OVERVIEW

A traditional Tummy Tuck or abdominoplasty is an operation to tighten and reshape the abdominal area. Most other surgeons tend to simply focus on the removal of excess skin to create a “flatter” appearance. Whilst our specialist surgeons will remove any excess skin and fat, they also tighten and (if muscle separation has occurred during pregnancy) repair the underlying muscles to create a more sculpted, smoother, and more toned tummy.

During a Tummy Tuck, extra skin is excised, so that any stretch marks or scars in the area are cut away. “Contoured” Tummy Tuck surgery can effectively regain your abdominal tone and shape, and significantly improve your self-esteem.

Hyperpigmentation, which leads to more prominent scars, is a common risk for people with melanated skin tones, whether resulting from accidental injuries or surgical incisions. Furthermore, individuals with darker skin may have a higher susceptibility to keloid scarring and an increased risk of complications. However, this does not mean that surgery is off-limits for darker skin individuals; it simply highlights the need for increased care and awareness. There are always ways to minimise the risk of noticeable scars without compromising the surgery.

YOUR SIMPLE
5 STEP
JOURNEY

YOUR SIMPLE 5 STEP JOURNEY

Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers every client a free consultation with an expert, accredited plastic surgeon, with no obligation to proceed to treatment. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss your concerns and whether a Tummy Tuck is the right procedure to help you achieve the appearance you want.

Bella Vou also offers innovative, new techniques for treating loose skin and excess fatty tissue. The experienced plastic surgeons can advise on whether Vaser Liposculpture, together with either Renuvion skin tightening or BodyTite treatment may provide smaller scars, quicker recovery, and a better cosmetic result.

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 a further appointment with your consultant before proceeding to surgery. This will give you a chance to find out more about the Tummy Tuck, your preparation, and recovery.

Step 3. Preparation for Tummy Tuck surgery

The staff at Bella Vou will advise you on any pre-operative preparations to reduce your risk of infection and help your recovery.

You may be asked to stop taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication, which can increase the risk of bleeding. It’s important to stop smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes, which can impede the healing process. You should continue to shower daily, as usual. You will be advised about the time to start fasting in preparation for your general anaesthetic.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll be welcomed to Bella Vou, given a gown to wear and escorted to the state-of-the-art operating theatre.

Step 4. What happens during Tummy Tuck surgery?

Tummy Tuck surgery is performed under general anaesthetic. The surgeon cleans the skin then makes incisions from hip to hip and around the belly button. The surgeon will place the scars carefully so that they are hidden in the skin's natural folds and creases.

Your consultant will separate the skin from the tissues below, then realign 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 a Tummy Tuck

You will stay on the ward overnight following Tummy Tuck surgery. The following day you will be able to go home. It’s important to arrange for a friend or family member to pick you up and escort you. You will be given pain-relief and a supportive pressure garment to reduce pain, bleeding, and swelling.

It takes around six weeks to recover fully; however, after two weeks, you may feel ready to return to work. From four to six weeks, you can reintroduce exercise, gradually increasing activity as you regain fitness, 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.

The staff at Bella Vou will carefully monitor your recovery. After a week, the wound care specialist and nurse will check your scar. At around six weeks, your surgeon will check your progress, and at six months, the nurse and wound care specialist will see you again to ensure that you remain healthy, well, and happy with your results. However, if you have any questions or concerns, the staff at Bella Vou are always on hand to offer support, day and night.
