Tummy Tuck Surgery Claims Guide (Abdominoplasty)

Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure which erases surplus skin and fat around the abdomen area to attain a flatter, more taut stomach. Most people who choose to have this surgery are looking to remove sagging, loose skin.


Cosmetic Claims Guide to Standard Abdominoplasty

A standard abdominoplasty is one of the most common techniques used to create a slimmer, tighter stomach. 


Cosmetic Claims Guide to Partial or 'mini' abdominoplasty

Mini abdominoplasty is not as invasive as other tummy tuck techniques as the umbilicus is not moved. It’s recommended for people who have surplus skin and fat located in the mid to lower abdomen. 


Cosmetic Claims Guide to Extended Abdominoplasty

An extended tummy tuck includes the procedure for standard abdominoplasty, as well as a lateral thigh lift, meaning surplus skin and fat is cut away from the upper thighs, the lower back and also the waist area. 


Tummy tuck Surgery Claims, technically known as Abdominoplasty Surgery

A tummy tuck, technically known as abdominoplasty, is an operation designed to remove excess fat or skin from the abdomen (tummy) after weight loss to create a tighter, flatter stomach. A tummy tuck can also remove or reduce the appearance of stretch marks by tightening the abdominal muscles.

While the decision to have a tummy tuck is personal to every individual patient, it is most commonly favoured by those who have lost a considerable amount of weight. Other patients, however, include those who have recently given birth or have undergone successful stomach surgery for obesity.

According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), over 3,200 tummy tuck operations were carried out in the UK in 2011.
