Many benefits of abdominoplasty surgery
A variety of reasons can cause excess fat, poor elasticity of the skin, or weakened connective tissues in your abdominal region. We aim to fix
these problems using abdominoplasty surgery to improve your quality of life. We provide tummy tuck in Lahore that can also help
with the following;
Restoring bladder control
by Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) Surgery
A vast majority of women suffer from a weak bladder that can be
caused by childbirth or natural aging. At Cosmeticoplasty, we can
correct urinary incontinence during abdominoplasty by creating a
slight obstruction using the soft tissues to cause tension along the
path and prevent leakage so you can laugh, cough, sneeze or jump
Ventral Hernia correction
by Abdominoplasty Surgery
We can help you with a ventral hernia through abdominoplasty. A
ventral hernia is when a bulge of tissues protrudes through an
opening in your abdominal wall muscles, causing pain, discomfort,
and complications with other organs. By tightening the muscles
in your abdominal region, we make sure to close the opening in the
abdominal wall muscles. At Cosmeticoplasty, we provide
Tummy Tuck that can help you in reducing the
likelihood of reoccurrence of the hernia.
Let’s get you Moving!
Are you struggling with maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle? Loose skin and excess
fat can make moving around and exercise more difficult, slipping you into a more
sedentary lifestyle. We believe that Tummy Tuck can reinvigorate your love
of walking, running, and doing exercise by making it easier for you to move.
Need help with Your
Posture and low Back Pain?
Is your low back pain killing you? One of the collateral benefits of having an abdominoplasty surgery is reduced low back pain. The most common side effect of having weak abdominal muscles is back pain. During abdominoplasty, we tighten your abdominal wall muscles that support the spine, which help you maintain a good posture so you can stand taller, stronger, pain-free, and enjoy a quality life.

No one can deny the magic of giving birth, but we all know how taxing it can be to get back in good shape. Abdominoplasty surgery is often associated with “mommy makeover,” which is a combination of several other body contouring procedures; however, we also perform tummy tuck as a stand-alone procedure to reshape your post pregnancy figure and help you regain your confidence.
About the procedure of Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) Surgery
No doubt abdominoplasty surgery has many benefits, it still is major surgery, and you should consult a qualified surgeon about it. Depending upon the extent of surgery, the procedure can take 1-5 hours, and it can leave a scar at the waistline, which fades away with time. We use general anesthesia during the procedure. The recovery period can take 4-6 weeks. Our patients are always very delighted with the results. At Cosmeticoplasty, we perform Tummy Tuck surgery in Lahore to provide you with the best services and excellent outcomes.
Abdominoplasty surgery varies in scope and is subdivided into different categories;
If you have extra skin around your upper and lower abdomen, then complete Tummy Tuck is right for you. For this procedure, we make a horizontal curved incision from hip to hip and detach the skin to reveal the abdominal muscles. We remove the excess skin and adipose tissues and suture the loose muscles together tightly. Finally, we reposition the navel, close the incision and apply the dressing; sometimes, a compression garment is also used.
Also called a partial abdominoplasty, it is right for you if you are at a stable, healthy weight and have excess skin only in the lower abdomen, more like a belly pooch. For mini-abdominoplasty surgery, we make a smaller incision to remove the skin and fat of the lower abdominal region. we do not need to reposition the navel in this procedure.
It is an extended abdominoplasty surgery, also known as a belt lipectomy or lower body
lift. If you wish to enhance the appearance of your hips and lower back along with your
full abdomen, then you should go for circumferential abdominoplasty. We use this
method to remove the fat from your hips and lower back, tighten the abdominal wall
muscles and remove excess skin from your entire stomach.
We can combine an abdominoplasty surgery with liposuction to make a ‘lipotuck’ that can perform body contouring around the hips, thighs, and buttocks. We can also combine it with breast reduction or breast lift along with liposuction. At Cosmeticoplasty, we provide abdominoplasty surgery in Lahore with pinpoint accuracy and precision to attain the best results.
Boost your confidence with abdominoplasty surgery
Abdominoplasty surgery is not an ancillary for weight loss or exercise, but fat deposits and skin laxity can affect confidence and self-esteem more than people may think. Dr. Mustehsan Bashir is an extremely qualified and skillful surgeon, and he feels that no matter what, you deserve to feel confident in your skin. At Cosmeticoplasty, we provide the best abdominoplasty surgery in Lahore to get rid of your excess skin, eliminate stretch marks and enhance your self-image to positively influence you in making healthy choices that will support your overall well-being.
How much weight can you lose with a tummy tuck?
You can lose up to 5-10 pounds with a tummy tuck, but it is not considered to be a weight-loss procedure; in fact, the ideal candidate for abdominoplasty is considered to be someone who is close or at their ideal weight and is troubled by the appearance of a protruding belly or saggy loose skin on their abdomen. A tummy tuck can help you lose inches in your midsection and drop clothing sizes.
What is the difference between a mini-abdominoplasty and a full abdominoplasty?
Both of these procedures involve removing excess skin and tightening abdominal muscles. However, the difference between the two procedures is that the full tummy tuck includes the area above and below your belly button, whereas the mini tummy tuck only involves the lower abdominal area.
What to expect after the abdominoplasty surgery?
- After your surgery, you will be put in a compression garment which will be used for 4-6 weeks to help with swelling.
- You may experience some pain or discomfort that will be easily managed by the prescribed pain medications.
- You will be slightly bent at the waist while standing or lying down for 7-10 days to protect the incisions and allow the skin to adapt. After this time, you will be able to stand up straight.
- If a drain is put, then it will be taken out as soon as the fluid output is low enough, which takes about 1-2 weeks.
Is it okay to have abdominoplasty before having kids? Can abdominoplasty interfere with pregnancy?
No, abdominoplasty does not interfere with future pregnancies. Some people think that because abdominoplasty surgery tightens the abdominal muscles, it might interfere with future pregnancies, but abdominoplasty does not have any negative impact on pregnancy. However, future pregnancies after abdominoplasty impact the results of abdominoplasty and may raise a need for another tummy tuck. Therefore it is recommended to wait until you are done having children. Doing so can help ensure that the results of a tummy tuck last long and are not impacted by the bodily changes occurring during pregnancy.
Can abdominoplasty remove stretch marks?
Stretch marks are in the skin, and because the skin is removed during a tummy tuck, some stretch marks are removed, some get repositioned lower on the abdomen, and some might stay unaffected. The goals and priorities are set during the consultation, and the outcome can vary from person to person.
What is the difference between liposuction and tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles, and liposuction is used to remove excess fat. Liposuction does not remove excess saggy and loose skin. Liposuction and tummy tuck are often used together to achieve the desired contour.
Why is liposuction not enough to remove the extra belly fat?
For some patients, liposuction is the ideal procedure to remove excess abdominal fat. If your protruding abdomen is primarily composed of fat and your skin tone is good enough to contract after the removal of fat and won’t get loose and saggy, then liposuction is recommended. However, having excess or saggy skin and loose abdominal muscles prevents liposuction from giving the ideal results, and a tummy tuck is needed.
What are the medical reasons to get a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck can be deemed as a medical necessity in the following cases
- To correct diastasis recti
- To correct a ventral hernia
- Reduce stress urinary incontinence
- Improve posture and back pain
- Improve abdominal tone
- Excess skin following significant weight loss
What is the recovery period after abdominoplasty surgery?
You can walk on the day of your surgery. In fact, it is encouraged to walk three times a day after your surgery to improve circulation and avoid blood clots. However, running, lifting heavy weights, and other strenuous activities should be avoided for six weeks after the procedure. On average, people are able to return to work after two weeks. The bruising subsides within a couple of weeks, and the swelling will continue to diminish until approximately three months. Your scars will continue to heal and will become thinner and lighter in color at around 12-18 months.
What are the risks of abdominoplasty surgery?
Like in the case of any other surgical procedure, there is a small risk of infection and bleeding. Certified plastic surgeons take great care to make sure that these risks are kept to the absolute minimum. Additionally, there is also a small risk of blood clots in the legs and lungs. Adequate precautions such as using blood thinners and compression bandages are taken to avoid any complications.
What are long-term considerations after abdominoplasty?
With stable weight, the results of abdominoplasty last a lifetime. However, if you experience any weight fluctuations or get pregnant, the results of your tummy tuck can be affected.
