What is a circular abdominoplasty?

A circular abdominoplasty is more invasive than other abdominoplasty operations. It is also known as a circular tummy tuck, 360-degree tummy tuck or waistline lipectomy.

A circular tummy tuck treats not only the abdominal area, but also the sides (love handles), the back, the sides of the thighs and around the pelvis. During this procedure, excess skin and fatty tissue are removed, and the muscles of the abdomen are repaired and tightened. The 360-degree tummy tuck is particularly suitable for people who have loose skin, weakened muscles or stubborn fat following weight loss, pregnancy, etc. It is the only method that removes skin from the sides and back, and it is the best choice for people who have lost a lot of weight.

Who is a 360 degree tummy tuck suitable for?

  • Patients who have lost a lot of weight.
  • Women who have experienced childbirth.
  • Patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery.
  • For people who have undergone bariatric surgery.
  • For people with loose, sagging skin.
  • For patients whose abdominal muscles are stretched and weakened.

What should be done before undergoing a circular abdominoplasty?

Before the circular tummy tuck, you will have a consultation session with your doctor to review your current and previous illnesses, as well as any surgical procedures you may have had in the past. During this session, the doctor will examine your abdominal muscles, the amount and type of fatty tissue, and the skin of your abdomen and its flexibility. The following tests will also be carried out:

  1. Electrocardiogram : To assess the rhythm and function of your heart.
  2. Pulmonary function test : To assess the function of your lungs.
  3. Primary blood test: To check for infection or anaemia, and to assess kidney function.

Afterwards, photographs will be taken of your abdomen area, and your doctor will tell you what you can expect as a result of your treatment.

On the day of the 360 degree tummy tuck, and before you are put under anaesthetic, the surgeon will make the necessary markings on the areas to be operated on, so that the incision can be made in a place that will be covered by your underwear.

Circular tummy tuck procedure

  • The patient will be placed under general anaesthetic prior to the circular tummy tuck, so there will be no pain or discomfort.
  • The incision for this procedure extends around the waist, and continues from the back to the top of the gluteal space.
  • The 360 degree tummy tuck begins in the abdomen, with the patient lying on his or her back.
  • An incision is made below the bikini line, the lower abdominal muscles are sutured along the vertical line if necessary, and excess skin and fatty tissue is removed.
  • The position of the umbilicus changes because the skin has to be pulled down from above and then sutured.
  • For this reason, the surgeon creates a new incision at the natural location of the umbilicus.
  • In fact, the umbilicus is still attached to the underlying muscles, and only the location of the opening in the skin changes.
  • The patient is then turned onto his or her side, and the surgeon removes the excess skin and fat. The same procedure is then performed on the other side.
  • In some cases, the surgeon prefers to operate on the back first, in which case the patient is placed on his or her stomach and the back of the body is operated on first.
  • At this stage, other operations may also be carried out, such as a hip lift (buttocks), hip augmentation using lumbar fat, an external thigh lift and treatment of a hernia.
  • The incisions are then sutured, the patient is returned to a supine position and the circular tummy tuck is performed as described above.
  • Finally, small drainage tubes are placed in the abdomen to drain off fluids.
  • The tummy tuck usually takes at least 5 hours.

After a circular abdominoplasty

  • 1 or 2 nights in hospital
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Pain felt
  • Limited bleeding

Post-operative recovery after a circular tummy tuck

  • As this is a more invasive method of abdominoplasty, the recovery period is longer.
  • Patients need to rest for between 4 and 6 weeks.
  • If your work requires physical activity, this rest period will increase to 8 weeks.
  • Heavy exercise should only be started with the doctor’s approval.
  • The patient must wear special clothing for at least 3 weeks.

Risks associated with lipectomy of the waistline

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Allergic reaction to the anaesthetic
  • Seroma
  • Necrosis
  • Fat embolism
  • Kidney and heart problems

Results of a circular tummy tuck

The final results of a circular tummy tuck are usually visible after 2 to 3 months. These results are usually permanent, but the patient should consider maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes a proper diet and exercise programme.

Cost of circular tummy tuck in Tunisia

The overall cost can vary depending on a number of factors. As the procedure is considered cosmetic surgery, the costs are not covered by health insurance policies.

The factors that influence the overall cost of circular abdominoplasty are as follows:

  • Complexity of the circular abdominoplasty operation
  • the amount of fat to be removed
  • the combination of the operation with other surgical procedures or with liposuction.
  • The use of advanced technologies
  • The surgeon’s level of experience and knowledge
  • The geographical location of the treatment centre

By choosing Tunisia as your destination for a tummy tuck, you can reduce the overall cost of the operation by up to 80%.

The low cost of your trip is due to the low wages of the workforce and the low costs of hospitalisation, healthcare and post-operative accommodation.
