Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplastry in Bangkok, Thailand

Are you bothered by stubborn fat deposits or excess skin in the abdominal area? Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, can improve the appearance of the abdomen and help you achieve the figure you want.


Significant weight loss can leave you with loose, baggy skin that hangs off your stomach and waist. The effects of pregnancy can also leave you with excess skin on your abdomen and other parts of your body. A solution to this may be a tummy tuck in Thailand. This procedure, also known as abdominoplasty, is designed to flatten your abdomen by removing excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen, usually coupled with abdominal muscle tightening. The remaining skin is repositioned for a slimmer waistline and an enhanced contour.

Evaluation Before the Operation

The first step towards a tummy tuck is an initial consultation with a plastic surgeon. The surgeon will evaluate the elasticity of your abdominal skin, the strength of your abdominal muscles and the amount of excess fat in the abdominal cavity. You will have an opportunity to discuss your aesthetic goals and the surgeon will walk you through the different surgical options available to you.

  • Surgery and Immediate Recovery:
    The surgery itself usually requires an overnight hospital stay. Some patients may need to stay longer, depending on the extent of the surgery and any potential complications.

  • Post-Surgery Recovery:
    Once discharged from the hospital, it’s critical that the patient stays in Thailand for post-operative check-ups and to ensure that the healing process starts without any complications. This period can range from 10 to 14 days, during which you might have several follow-up visits with your surgeon.

Tummy Tuck Surgery

Different Types of Tummy Tuck

Full Tummy Tuck

The traditional tummy tuck involves making a horizontal incision in the area between your bikini line and belly button. The shape and length and the incision can vary depending on the amount of loose skin. Excess fat is removed through this incision, and loose skin is trimmed for an aesthetically pleasing contour. In addition, the belly button (umbilicus) is repositioned so it sits in a more natural position. Surgical drainage tubes may be placed at the incision site to prevent fluid build-up. These will be left in place temporarily and removed before you return home.
