What is an Extended Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) surgery?

An extended tummy tuck in Manchester removes excess skin and fat from your stomach, hips and back, whilst repairing your abdominal muscles for a leaner, stronger body.

Mr Siddiqui, our expert extended tummy tuck surgeon, helps patients redefine their body shape. Contact the Breast & Body Clinic, Manchester for a consultation today!

An extended tummy tuck surgery is similar to a full tummy tuck (full abdominoplasty) or mini tummy tuck, with the removal of excess skin and fat and repair of loose muscles of the abdominal wall. However, this procedure also includes the removal of loose skin and excess tissue and fat from the back and hip areas. 

Extended tummy tuck procedures contour the whole abdomen, flanks, hips and back for a firmer, flatter stomach and back and improved core muscle strength. 

Why have an Extended Tummy Tuck in Manchester?

There is a myriad of reasons why people (men and women) choose to have an extended abdominoplasty in Manchester:

  • After significant weight loss and they are left with saggy excess skin.
  • If they feel self-conscious of their excess fat and skin.
  • Uncomfortable in clothing or swimmers.
  • To flatten their abdomen and slim their hips and back.
  • To tighten muscles and skin in their abdomen and back.
  • To remove stubborn excess fat that they have been unable to shift with exercise and a healthy diet.

  • Improves body confidence and self-esteem.
  • Restores weakened or separated abdominal muscles for better posture, a firmer abdomen and reduction of stress incontinence.

Am I a good candidate for an abdominoplasty?

Optimal candidates are in good health and at a stable weight with excess abdominal skin. If you sit up straight and have hanging skin, you are a good candidate for abdominoplasty. Cigarette smokers are considered poor candidates because nicotine consumption constricts blood flow. If you smoke, you will need to stop at least 6 weeks prior to surgery and avoid smoking during the healing process.

Am I a good candidate for an Extended Tummy Tuck surgery in Manchester?

The best candidate for extended abdominoplasty in Manchester are those people who are in good health, at a stable weight and have realistic expectations for their cosmetic surgery.

A circumferential tummy tuck improves the strength of your abdominal muscles, whilst slimming and contouring your hips, stomach, flank and back.

What is the process for an Extended
Abdominoplasty surgery in Manchester?

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 to do before tummy tuck surgery

An abdominoplasty is a major surgical procedure and requires some preparation to ensure everything goes perfectly. Your doctor should provide you with a list of dos and don’ts to be followed as part of your preparation for this treatment:

  • Stick to a healthy diet
  • Keep a watch on your health
  • Get involved in healthy relaxation activities
  • Don’t use any form of tobacco
  • Maintain a stable and healthy weight for as long as possible before your procedure
  • Don’t drink alcohol for at least one week before treatment
  • Don’t use herbal medication
  • Stop taking aspirin, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil or similar anti-inflammatory medications

How does getting a tummy tuck in Manchester work?

A circumferential complete tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure. Our friendly and expert team at Breast & Body Clinic Manchester are here to help guide you on this journey. Here is what to expect from your first consultation with Mr Siddiqui right through to your full recovery.


Mr Siddiqui provides a personalised and comprehensive consultation where we will discuss your medical history, conduct a physical examination and talk about your goals and expectations. You will also be provided with pre-surgery advice that we strongly recommend you follow for optimal results from your surgery.


Mr Siddiqui advises patients to stick to a healthy diet, avoid smoking and alcohol for at least a week before treatment (the longer the better), and to stop taking herbal medication, aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication.

We also advise you to arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery and to help care for you in the first few days.


On the day of your surgery, you will be given a general anaesthetic, and incisions will be made around your abdomen and back to remove excess skin and tighten muscles. Liposuction can also be used to remove excess fat. Generally, with full abdominoplasty procedures, you will need a new belly button created. All incisions are then closed with dissolvable stitches and your surgeon may wrap your abdominal area and back in an elastic bandage or support garment.


Once the general anaesthesia and local numbing anaesthetic wear off you will feel tender, tight and discomfort to the incision sites and the muscles that have been pulled together.

During the first week, we recommend you take pain relief on a regular basis and rest. After your second week, we expect this discomfort to slowly subside as your body heals.

Mr Siddiqui will arrange follow-up appointments during this recovery period to check on your progress.

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.

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.

You can find answers to frequently asked questions about tummy tucks below.

How much more for a complete circumferential tummy tuck depends on what other surgery you are comparing it to, where you have the surgery and how extensive the surgery will be. For the best advice contact Breast & Body Clinic, Manchester and our friendly staff can help answer your questions.

A standard tummy tuck, or full abdominoplasty,  involves an incision being made along the bikini line, extending hip to hip and around your belly button, targeting your lower and upper abdomen. An extended abdominoplasty used the same technique, except the incisions extend from your hip around to your back to target not just your abdominal area but your waist and back too.

A mini, or partial abdominoplasty, is performed using short incisions and are ideal for those people who don’t have as much excess abdominal skin. These surgical procedures target the smaller area of your lower abdomen.

Our plastic surgeons advise that this procedure can take anywhere from 2 to 5 hours, depending on the amount of excess skin removed, muscles to be tightened and if they include liposuction. Mr Siddiqui and his team will be able to provide further insight into the length of surgery once a treatment plan is confirmed.

There are several different types of abdominoplasty:

  • Partial abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck).
  • Full abdominoplasty (full tummy tuck).
  • Extended abdominoplasty (extended tummy tuck).

Yes! Men can have an extended abdominoplasty. This procedure can benefit both men and women who are feeling self-conscious of loose, sagging skin and separated muscles from dramatic weight loss or the natural ageing process.

As with any surgery, there are risks to a circumferential tummy tuck. There is a risk of bleeding, infection, haematoma, pain or delayed healing. Our aesthetic plastic surgeons at Breast and Body Clinic ensure that you understand all risks and potential complications of this procedure at your initial appointment.

Full recovery after an extended abdominoplasty can take 6 to 8 weeks. You will have several follow-up appointments during this time to check on your recovery and healing and to provide further advice and recommendations.

We strongly recommend at least 2 weeks off work, or longer if you have a physical job such as a labourer or nurse, after an extended abdominoplasty surgery.

We advise you to rest for the first week, and if given the all-clear by your surgeon, you can resume light exercise in the second week after your surgery. We expect that by week 4 to 6 you can increase the amount of exercise you are doing, but avoid strenuous activity until your surgeon clears it.

By about 2 to 3 weeks after your surgery, you should be able to drive again. However, please check in with your surgical team for up-to-date advice based upon your individual surgery and recovery.

Yes, you can have an extended abdominoplasty if you have had a c-section birth. However, we advise you to wait until your body has fully recovered prior to having any other surgical procedure. You should discuss this with your surgeon for further advice.

We recommend you avoid having an extended abdominoplasty if you are planning on having children. During pregnancy, your abdominal muscles and skin stretch to accommodate your growing baby, this can cause muscle separation and put pressure on any scars from your surgery.

Exercise and a healthy diet will help keep your stomach muscles in shape after your surgery. Further advice for long-term recovery and optimisation of your results will be provided at your appointment.

There is no guarantee that an extended abdominoplasty will remove stretch marks. However, as the skin is pulled taut and the underlying tissues manipulated for firmer, tighter contours these stretch marks may reduce in appearance over time, even if they don’t disappear completely.

Yes, you can combine an extended abdominoplasty with another procedure, such as our Mummy Makeover procedures. Many people will also have breast surgery (augmentation, reductions or lifts) or liposuction at the same time. Please discuss this with Mr Siddiqui so he can tailor a treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.
