Contact us today and learn more about abdominoplasty surgery.

What is an abdominoplasty?

An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that tightens and reshapes your abdominal area. It’s the perfect solution if you’ve struggled with sagging skin or stubborn fat in your tummy region, helping you achieve a flatter and more contoured stomach and abdominal muscles.

Why have a tummy tuck surgery in Manchester?

Excess skin or fat, decreased skin elasticity, and weakened connective tissues can lead to people struggling with attaining a flat or finely-toned abdomen. Contributing factors to this are:

  • significant fluctuations in weight
  • the effects of pregnancy on the body
  • natural ageing processes
    individual variations in body type

You may have already tried exercise and dieting and not achieved your desired results, or are struggling to remove the excess fat. A tummy tuck procedure is a great option to help shed that stubborn excess skin and fat for a firm, flat stomach.


An abdominoplasty in the UK can help to firm and contour your lower abdomen for a trim, toned figure.

What are the benefits of a tummy tuck?

Abdominoplasty surgery has many benefits:

  • flatter, firmer abdomen by removing loose skin and stubborn fat deposits
  • boosted confidence: achieving the body you desire can greatly enhance your self-esteem and self-confidence
  • improved posture: a tummy tuck can help correct abdominal muscle separation potentially improving your posture and reducing discomfort

Am I a good candidate for a tummy tuck procedure?

If you’ve struggled with excess abdominal skin or fat, especially after pregnancy or significant weight loss, you may be an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck. During a consultation, our experts will assess your specific situation to determine if the procedure is suitable for you

It is important to note that tummy tuck procedures are not designed to lose weight or as a weight loss surgery. They are to correct tummy muscles and tighten the remaining skin after pregnancy or losing weight to your optimal BMI.

Choosing the right tummy tuck procedure

At Breast & Body Clinic we offer 3 different types of tummy tuck procedures in Manchester. Your plastic surgeon will discuss the results you want and will determine the appropriate procedure during your initial consultation.

Full abdominoplasty

This option is for patients who need the most correction. The incision (cut) is made at the bikini line and the length of the scar depends on the amount of extra skin. Your surgeon will then manipulate and shape the skin and muscle as needed.

You will also have an incision around your navel (belly button) with this procedure because it is necessary to free your navel from surrounding tissue. Drainage tubes may or may not be placed under your skin. These will be removed in a few days as your surgeon sees fit.

Partial or mini tummy tuck

Partial abdominoplasties are done with shorter incisions and are often performed on people who have less excess skin. Your belly button most likely won’t be moved during this type of procedure. Your skin will be separated between the line of the incision and your belly button. This procedure generally takes one to two hours.

Extended  abdominoplasty

This surgery involves the back area. When there is a lot of excess fat in the back as well as the abdomen, you may have either liposuction of the back or circumferential abdominoplasty. The latter procedure allows for the removal of both skin and fat from the hip and back areas, which improves the shape of your body from all sides.

What is the process for having an abdominoplasty in the UK?

An abdominoplasty in the UK involves several stages. The friendly and professional team at Breast and Body Clinic will guide you through every stage.

Consultation and pre-surgery

At your first free tummy tuck consultation, Mr Siddiqui will discuss your goals, medical history and what to expect from the cosmetic surgery. Together, we’ll create a personalised plan tailored to your unique needs.


Breast and Body Clinic is here with you every step of your tummy tuck journey to find your new, trim figure.

Preparing for abdominoplasty is crucial for a successful cosmetic surgery procedure. Your doctor will provide a set of guidelines, including:

  • maintaining a healthy diet
  • monitoring your health
  • quit smoking and alcohol for at least a week prior
  • avoiding herbal medication
    and discontinuing anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin, ibuprofen or similar drugs

Additionally, striving for a stable and healthy weight before the procedure is essential.

The procedure

An abdominoplasty in the UK can last anywhere between 1 to 5 hours, depending upon what type of tummy tuck surgery you have:

You will be given a general anaesthetic before your surgeon commences your abdominoplasty procedure. Your surgeon will create careful incisions, before removing excess skin and fat. Your abdominal wall muscles can be repaired before creating a new opening for your belly button and the remaining skin is meticulously sutured together.

Recovery and after-care

Once the numbness wears off after the cosmetic surgery, you may start feeling some pain. This can include sensations of tightness, tenderness, and discomfort in the surgical and belly button area, and within your muscles that have been repaired.

The first week after the surgery you may feel the most pain and soreness. You can take pain-relieving medications to help. This discomfort, pain and swelling decrease over the week.

If you had a mini tummy tuck, you should expect most of this pain and discomfort to subside by the end of the second week following your procedure. However, for a full abdominoplasty or standard tummy tuck, you might still experience some mild to moderate discomfort and tenderness in your abdomen during the second week.

Patient Reviews


I had three procedures done with Mr Siddiqui, lip lift, breast implants and labiaplasty. I did a lot of research into surgeons and Mr Siddiqui stood out to me online he has a great profile and amazing reviews. My first consultation went really well, I was completely at ease, Mr Siddiqui explained everything thoroughly. A few weeks later I was in hospital having my procedures done, I was very well looked after and everything went smoothly. The aftercare was great. Between appointments Mr Siddiqui was only a WhatsApp or text message away, he was in touch everyday to begin and if I had any concerns he always replied quickly. I’m 6 weeks on from my procedures now and I am healing well and feeling great. I am very happy with my results. I can’t recommend Mr Siddiqui enough.

So glad I chose Dr Siddiqui, after searching for a qualified surgeon he stood out from the rest! He sounded perfect for my breast reduction. When I went for my consultation he made me feel at ease and explained everything very clearly. He was so nice and suggested a size that would suit my frame. His secretary Rachel, clinic team and staff were also very nice! Surgery went really well. Dr Siddiqui gave me his mobile number to text or call if I needed anything. The morning after surgery he messaged me to see how I was, which I thought was lovely. My recovery was really good, I was back at work a week later. I am very pleased with the result, just love my new size. Dr Siddiqui is an excellent surgeon and I highly recommend him.

Recovery time after abdominoplasty varies, depending on what type you have (mini, standard or full). Most patients should expect several weeks for initial healing.

Tummy tucks are typically not available on the NHS as they are considered to be cosmetic procedures. It is important to be aware it is a major surgery and to know all the costs that are involved.

Abdominoplasty can remove excess loose skin and repair stomach muscles to achieve a flatter, firmer abdomen. It can also decrease the appearance of stretch marks for smoother skin.

Tummy tuck results can be long-lasting with a healthy lifestyle and avoiding excessive weight gain.
