Non-surgical tummy tuck treatments have risen in popularity over the last few years with many patients unable or unwilling to undergo a more invasive surgical tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck procedure. At our 106 Crawford Street clinic, our aesthetic practitioners offer both laser fat reduction and laser skin tightening for patients who have mild degrees of skin laxity and modest amounts of excess fat. Patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity may also be ideal candidates for body tight radio-frequency skin tightening. BodyTite involves the insertion of a specialised probe beneath the skin followed by the application of bipolar radiofrequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin leading to tighter and firmer skin. BodyTite can also be combined with Morpheus8 skin tightening for even more powerful skin tightening without the need for more invasive treatments. Morpheus8 treatment can be carried out with a topical anaesthetic and takes approximately 60 minutes to carry out treatment to the whole abdomen. Many patients notice favourable improvements after just two sessions of Morpheus8 skin tightening treatment.
Unfortunately, there are a number of ineffective non-surgical tummy tuck treatments which are inappropriately promoted to prospective patients and which are shown to be either ineffective or carry undesirable side effects. It is vital that patients carry out extensive research on the treatment, the practitioner that will carry it out as well as the clinic where the treatment will take place.
At Centre for Surgery, our practitioners focus on a results-driven approach with safe and effective treatments. Our after-care continues well after the treatment has been completed to ensure that patients have access to the right information at the right time.

Is a non-surgical tummy tuck effective?
Non-surgical tummy tuck treatments are unable to achieve the results that a surgical tummy tuck also known as abdominoplasty can achieve. Tummy tuck surgery can achieve dramatic and permanent long-term results with a very high patient satisfaction rate.
Non-surgical tummy tucks can work very effectively for appropriately selected patients who have minimal skin laxity and with small localised fat deposits. However, for the majority of patients who have more generalised skin laxity with loose and wrinkly skin, the ideal treatment is a tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck for patients with localised skin laxity in the lower part of the abdomen.
Tummy tuck surgery has traditionally been associated with a number of risks and complications and a long recovery period. However recent anaesthetic and surgical breakthroughs have meant the modern tummy tuck procedure is very safe with a much shorter recovery period. Most tummy tuck surgery in the UK is carried out as an inpatient in a hospital and often involves a 2 to 3-night stay. Centre for Surgery is one of the few clinics in the UK to carry out day case abdominoplasty surgery which means that patients will be able to go home the same day after the procedure and recover in the comfort of their own homes. Evidence shows that patients who have day case tummy tuck surgery have a lower risk of complications as well as better aesthetic outcomes.
Can I combine liposuction with a tummy tuck?
Surgical tummy tuck versus non-surgical tummy tuck?
Tummy tuck surgery including the Brazilian tummy tuck involves a horizontal incision made across the lower part of the abdomen followed by the meticulous separation of the skin and fat from the underlying abdominal muscles. The weakened abdominal muscles are surgically repaired followed by the removal of excess skin. The skin is then carefully resutured whilst reconstructing a new belly button. Tummy tuck surgery is carried out under TIVA General anaesthesia which is the most advanced form of anaesthetic for day surgery and eliminates many of the disadvantages associated with traditional general anaesthesia.
How to have the best tummy tuck
Abdominoplasty surgery produces results that are significant and long-lasting as long as patients maintain a healthy lifestyle. Patients often notice a significant improvement in body shape immediately after the procedure. Non-surgical tummy tuck treatments are able to produce effective results in appropriately selected patients that are unable to achieve the dramatic results possible with tummy tuck surgery. Many patients find the lack of incisions, scars and downtime an attractive feature of nonsurgical tummy tuck treatments.
