Transform Your Shape with Tummy Tuck in the UK

A Tummy Tuck, or ‘Abdominoplasty’, is a highly effective and long-lasting way to sculpt and reshape your abdominal area. Dr. Javaid, our skilled surgeon here at Zenith, specialises in this procedure, offering both Full and Partial Tummy Tucks to address excess fat, loose skin, and weakened abdominal muscles.

Whether you’re seeking to restore your abdominal contour after weight loss, pregnancy, or to refine your appearance, our personalised approach ensures fantastic results.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

There are two types of Tummy Tuck: a Full Tummy Tuck is where the incision is made from hip to hip, whereas a Partial (mini) Tummy Tuck is where smaller incisions are made.

What an Abdominoplasty aims to do is restore a more contoured, smoother abdominal area by removing surplus skin and fat tissue while also addressing weakened or separated abdominal muscles.

At Zenith Cosmetic Clinics, Dr. Javaid specialises in both Full and Mini Tummy Tuck procedures.

The decision to opt for a Tummy Tuck can arise due to various reasons, the most common being if you have lost a considerable amount of weight, or have excess skin in the area following pregnancy.

How Does a Tummy Tuck Work?

During the operation, whether it’s a Full or Mini Tummy Tuck, a General Anaesthetic will put you to sleep, ensuring comfort as the excess skin and fat of the lower abdomen are detached from the abdominal muscles. The skin is then repositioned, with any redundant tissue being removed.

Your belly button can also be moved to fit the new abdominal structure if required, and a small area of the tummy muscles can be tightened. Your Surgeon may then use Liposuction to give the stomach definition, again, if this is required. At the end of the main surgery, the tummy “flap” is then stitched back into place.

At Zenith Cosmetic Clinics, our patient-centric approach prioritises informed decisions, providing comprehensive information, guidance, and support throughout the surgery journey.

Before The Tummy Tuck Procedure

Patients undergoing either type of Tummy Tuck can expect a personalised pre-operative preparation period. You will meet with your specific Surgeon, and allocated Patient Coordinator, numerous times before your surgery to assess your suitability for the procedure and discuss any risks or complications.

A thorough Pre-Operative Assessment, 2-5 weeks before the scheduled surgery date, will also ensure your fitness for the procedure. This involves measurements, medical history review, and essential tests.

Please note that a smoke-free period of at least 4 weeks before and after surgery is recommended for optimal healing.

After The Tummy Tuck Procedure

Post-surgery, a recovery period of 2-3 weeks is generally advised (depending on the type of work you do). It’s also recommended to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for 6 weeks post-surgery, and that you wear a supportive garment throughout the recovery period to reduce swelling and promote support.

Abdominoplasty Side Effects And Risks

Any abdominal operation, such as Tummy Tuck surgery, does involve an element of risk, but in our expert hands here at Zenith, you can rest assured you are receiving the highest standard of care.

Generally, healthy, non-smoking patients will experience minimal risk factors, however some potential side effects and risks associated with Abdominoplasty include:

  • Swelling / bruising
  • Scarring: Over time, scars tend to fade.
  • Infection: There is minimal risk of post-operative infection
  • Pain and discomfort: Any discomfort subsides gradually as healing progresses.
  • Numbness / temporary changes in sensation around the treated area

Note that the Abdominoplasty procedure is suitable for anyone that is of a healthy weight, but with excess skin and fat around their abdomen (tummy).


Tummy Tuck surgery (UK) is performed with the patient under General Anaesthetic.


You will see results of your Tummy Tuck procedure around 6-8 weeks after, once any swelling has subsided.


Tummy Tuck results are permanent!

Procedure Time

A full Tummy Tuck operation can take up to 3 hours, while a mini Tummy Tuck will take up to 2 hours.

Recovery Time

There will be 6-8 weeks of downtime after your Tummy Tuck procedure.
