Tummy Tuck

Many people struggle with loose skin and excess fat. As this can often be a source of embarrassment, you may find that you’re forced to cover up and wear loose fitting clothes. If this is indeed the case, then you should consider contacting Blue Tree Clinics in Dubai today to inquire about a tummy tuck.

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty as it’s better known as in the medical community is a procedure in which excess fat and skin are removed from around the abdomen. The procedure also helps to tighten the abdominal muscles leading to less sagging and a more desirable body shape. So long as a healthy weight is maintained, the effects will last making this the best choice for body shaping Dubai has seen.

Tummy tucks will vary from patient-to-patient, as will the results. As such, you should always maintain realistic expectations whenever you embark on this sort of treatment. The specifics of any body shaping in Dubai will always be discussed at length during your consultation. So throw out those baggy clothes and get ready to stock your wardrobe with the latest fashions.

  • Jumeirah (1, 2 and 3)
  • Meadows
  • Business Bay
  • Mirdif
  • Downtown Dubai and more


Who should consider having a tummy tuck?

Abdominoplasty is not intended to help with losing or controlling weight. In fact, we suggest that patients be at, or near to, their ideal weight before undergoing such a procedure. However, if you have loose skin after losing a substantial amount of weight, then a tummy tuck Dubai residents can boast about is for you.

Alternatively, if you have recently been pregnant, you may find that your skin or abdominal muscles have slackened as a result. Scarring may also be present in the form of stretch marks. Tummy tucks can help to tighten skin, strengthen abdominal muscles and remove, at least some, stretch marks. This form of body shaping in Dubai can also be used in conjunction with other operations.


Consultation and Treatment

Before we can proceed with a tummy tuck, a consultation must first be carried out as this gives us an opportunity to explain the procedure and its associated risks. Our resident specialist will carry out a full examination and review your medical history to check for any factors that may make you unsuitable for treatment.

If a tummy tuck in Dubai is not the right choice for you, we may also be able to recommend alternative treatments that are better suited. Before abdominoplasty can proceed, certain prerequisites must be met. For example, excess weight should be lost, and patients are advised to stop smoking or taking the contraceptive pill for up to two months prior to treatment.

This is to avoid complications both during and after the procedure. For the operation itself, you will be placed under general anesthesia meaning food and drink should be avoided for six hours beforehand. Driving, heavy machinery, alcohol and signing of legal documents should be avoided for up to 24 hours afterwards.

A tummy tuck in Dubai can take around 2-4 hours depending on the type of tuck being performed and the amount of fat and skin being removed. Standard tummy tucks involve two incisions; one from hip-to-hip and a second around the belly button. Excess fat and skin are removed, the skin is pulled down, and a new belly button is created.

With a mini tummy tuck, a single incision is made and fat and skin removed from just below the belly button. The belly button will change shape; however, it will not need to be remade. Mini tucks are usually performed in conjunction with liposuction.



Following this type of body shaping, Dubai patients can expect to remain in hospital for up to four days. This will enable us to replace any lost fluids intravenously and ensure that there are no complications. You’ll be discharged soon after, and we suggest you ask a friend or family member to drive you home.

Your abdomen will be wrapped in dressings, and we will prescribe painkillers to help manage the pain as this will assist in the healing process. Compression stockings may also be provided. If this is the case, these must be worn to prevent clots from forming. Our specialist will also supply you with post-care advice as well as a list of do’s and don’ts to avoid unnecessary complications.

Pain and bruising are to be expected for the first few days. Swelling will occur, and this can take months to subside. Scarring will fade with time but won’t fully disappear – fortunately, these scars can be easily concealed by the waistline of your trousers or bikini bottom. Once the swelling has gone, you’ll see just how noticeable the results of a tummy tuck in Dubai can be.
